Global RF MEMS Market to Grow at 37% Annually from 2019-2023

According to a new market research report by Technavio, the global radio frequency (RF) MEMS market for the period 2019-2023 is predicted to grow at an average of 37% annually. Though, the growth momentum of the market is expected to decelerate.

RF MEMS are employed to manufacture antenna tuners as they provide size advantages under space constraints and efficient operations for a broad spectrum of frequencies. Antenna tuning increases the total radiated power of the device, thereby boosting the performance of components such as PA, filters, and tuners. There is an increasing reliance on antenna tuners to achieve efficient antenna operations in smartphones. Therefore, an increase in the demand for antenna tuners from smartphone manufacturers will boost the global RF MEMS market.

As per Technavio, the development of NEMS (Nano Electro Mechanical Systems) will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This global radio frequency MEMS market 2019-2023 research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.

Global Radio Frequency MEMS Market: Development of NEMS

Increasing focus on the reduction of component sizes has led to the development of devices called NEMS, which have lower power consumption and production costs when compared to MEMS. This is because they are relatively smaller in size than MEMS and can be produced in larger quantities. These characteristics of NEMS allow the manufacture of highly sensitive RF components, and thus, initiatives are being undertaken to develop RF NEMS components.

According to Technavio, owing to the minuscule size of NEMS, they can be integrated into a range of devices. Therefore, the market will witness an increase in investments in the development of RF NEMS during the forecast period due to their low power consumption, small size, and high efficiency. This will drive the overall growth of the global RF MEMS market.
