Low-Loss Materials for 5G to Become a $110 Million Market by 2031

Low-Loss Materials for 5G to Become a $110 Million Market by 2031

The fifth-generation (5G) of telecommunication technology, is more than a faster mobile experience to stream movies. It enables a universal connection between devices from automotive to remote robots. As profitable business models and killer applications start to emerge, 5G will become one of the fastest growing markets, with a market size of over $720 Billion in 2030 and will contribute to a $2 Trillion annual connectivity boost to global GDP.

The most revolutionary aspect of a 5G network relies on the high frequency 5G technologies, i.e., mmWave 5G, which utilize spectrum from 26 GHz up to 40 GHz. The high-frequency signals result in significant transmission loss, require higher power and more efficient power supply and generate more heat. The transmission loss is a pain point for the antennas design and radio frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs) for 5G applications. For low frequency 5G, i.e., sub-6 GHz 5G, due to the high data transfer speed, reducing transmission loss is also desirable.

IDTechEx have published a report, "Low-loss Materials for 5G 2021-2031," focusing on the increasing demand for low-loss materials for both sub-6 GHz 5G and mmWave 5G. With the future rise of mmWave 5G, low-loss materials will foresee a rapid growth and play an increasingly important role. In this report, IDTechEx highlights the materials and technology challenges for mmWave 5G, survey the landscape of the low-loss materials, benchmark their performance, and forecast the technology trends.

They highlight the promising low-loss materials for 5G devices. This includes low-loss thermoset materials, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Liquid crystal polymers (LCP), Low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC), hydrocarbon, poly (p-phenylene ether) (PPE, or PPO), glass and more.

They have created a ten-year forecast focusing on the low-loss materials area for 5G related devices. The total market for low-loss materials will be over $110 Million USD by 2031, with an average annual growth rate of 28% from 2026 to 2031. The market will be driven by the deployment of mmWave 5G infrastructure and fast expanding CPE market.

The report "Low-loss Materials for 5G 2021-2031" contains a comprehensive analysis of different low-loss materials, from different perspectives such as performance, technology trends, potentials, and requirements for large scale deployment. Importantly, the report presents an unbiased analysis of primary data gathered via primary interviews with players across the supply chain, and it builds on IDTechEx's large database of 5G infrastructure and user equipment.
