RF Duplexer Market Segment to Reach $8 Billion in Sales by 2020

According to a new report published by Zion Research, the global demand for RF duplexers was valued at approximately US $4 Billion in 2014. This demand is expected to reach US $8 billion in 2020 with a growth rate of 11% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global RF duplexer market stood at around 42 million units in 2014. The report is titled “RF Duplexer Market for Cellular, Wireless Communication, Military, FO Communication, Consumer and Automatic & Miscellaneous Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2014-2020”.

A duplexer is an electronic 3-port device that allows bi-directional (duplex) communication over a single path. Duplexers can be based on frequency (often a waveguide filter), polarization (such as an orthomode transducer), or timing (as is typical in radar). They are used in various electronic devices such as cell phones, portable PCs, set top box, and tablets. Duplexers are usually compact and can easily fit in to smart phones and other wireless communication devices.

The rapidly growing cellular industry coupled with an increasing demand for cell phones is one of the important factors bolstering the growth of the RF duplexer market. Additionally, the increasing wireless communication application sector along with advanced technologies are further expected to drive the RF duplexer market. The technological advent and application development is expected to exhibit a significant growth opportunity for the RF duplexer market over the next few years. However, high cost and complexity in design may pose to be a challenge that could slow down growth in this segment.

The global RF duplexer market is segmented on the basis of major applications such as wireless communication, military, FO communication and others. The cellular industry accounted for 55% of the global RF duplexers market in 2014. Wireless communications is the second largest application segment. Military, FO communication, consumers are others key application segments are aexpected to exhibit significant growth during the forecast period.

North America dominated the RF duplexers market with over 28% of the global market share in 2014. They were closely followed by the Asia Pacific region and Europe. In terms of revenue, Asia Pacific was the second largest market for RF duplexers. The RF duplexers market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit strong growth owing to increasing teenage population and technology development. Europe, Latin America and Middle East & Africa are also expected to experience significant growth in the RF duplexers market.

Some of the major players in global RF duplexer market include Broadcom Ltd., Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd., TDK Corporation, and TriQuint Semiconductor Inc (Qorvo).
