According to a report ‘Cellular UE Radio Components Forecast 2020 - 2024: 5G Beyond the Baseband’ published by 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.

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. 

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. The report is prepared by considering radio architectures and historical component prices, and demand trends.

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.
