A radio frequency power amplifier or RF power amplifier is a tuned power amplifier that amplifies high-frequency signals used in radio communications. The frequency at which maximum gain occurs in an RF amplifier is made variable by changing the inductance or capacitance of the tuned circuit. An RF amplifier can tune over the desired range of input frequencies.
Global RF Power Amplifier Market Segments Size & Growth:
Global RF power amplifier market size is projected to reach approximately $11.2 billion by the end of 2024 with a CAGR of close to 16.01% from $4.02 billion in 2017 during the forecast timeline 2018-2024. Key parameters promoting the market growth include increasing adoption of consumer electronics, proliferating penetration of 4G technology, the emergence of next-generation wireless network such as 5G, increasing usage of long-term evolution(LTE), and increasing usage of RF power amplifier in lighting applications. However, increasing the cost of RF power amplifier with performance improvement, and reduced-price margin due to highly fragmented market is thereby hampering the market growth.
Increasing use of consumer electronics is witnessing globally, especially in smartphones and tablets. The consumer electronics market which includes smartphones and tablets is furthermore expected to witness high growth during the forecast period. Consumer electronics being a major application of RF power amplifiers will, therefore, drive the global RF power amplifiers market. The high cost associated with RF power amplifiers act as a primary restraint for the global RF power amplifier’s market, limiting its adoption. In addition to this, large size and high power consumption is also a challenge, hampering the growth of RF Power Amplifiers.
Global RF Power Amplifier Market Segments Share:
Global RF power amplifier market is categorised into a type which comprises solid-state RF power amplifier, and vacuum tube RF power amplifiers. Among them, solid-state RF power amplifier holds the largest share in the market due to the technological advancements and various other advantages. Solid state RF Power Amplifiers have started replacing vacuum tube RF power amplifiers.
