Strategy Analytics: 5G Will Lift Radio Components

Posted by Strategy Analytics

According to Strategy Analytics, 5G user equipment (UE) will help stimulate the markets for radio components, favoring the most advanced radio chipsets and complex RF front ends capable of supporting new sub-6 and mmWave 5G bands, as outlined in the Strategy Analytics RF & Wireless Components report “Cellular UE Radio Components Forecast 2020 – 2024: 5G Beyond the Baseband. 

The report takes a detailed look at user equipment shipments and bills of material by air interface (GSM-GPRS-EDGE, UMTS, CDMA, LTE, 5G etc.), examining recent history and providing a forecast to 2024 for market revenue and unit shipments of cellular radio frequency components including basebands, transceivers, millimeter-wave modules, RF filters, duplexers & multiplexers, power amps, LNA, switches, drain modulators and antenna tuners. This is the 18th consecutive year that Strategy Analytics has published its cellular component forecast.

Christopher Taylor, Director of RF & Wireless Components and author of the report, stated “More than twelve analysts contribute to the forecast starting with shipments and forecasts for cellular feature phones & smartphones, cellular M2M modules, cellular-enabled tablets, routers, and other cellular devices from the Strategy Analytics Wireless Devices, IoT Ecosystem, Automotive and Intelligent Home practices. With this system information, our components team then considers radio architectures and historical component prices and demand trends to arrive at what we believe to be realistic estimates and projections for the market that line up with historical supplier product line revenues.”

Stephen Entwistle, VP of Strategic Technologies at Strategy Analytics, added that “With 5G, radio solutions will continue to move to higher chip-count system-in-package (SiP) modules that encompass multiple technologies. This favors the largest chipset and RF front-end suppliers with the biggest R&D budgets and widest product portfolios, among these Hisilicon, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Samsung LSI, Murata, Skyworks and Qorvo.”―CT Bureau
