Market Scenario

Radio frequency (RF) filters play a critical role in the communication sector. RF filters help in eliminating the interference caused by white noise while transmitting and receiving the data through a communication channel. RF filters are widely used in functional areas including radio, television broadcast, and wireless communication operated through a range of medium to high frequencies required to have a proper, error-less, and reliable communication from one end to the other. Also, the RF filter based on its application areas are technically categorized based on the type namely low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and band-reject filters.

Advanced and emerging countries are witnessing rapid development in telecommunication sectors. Also, countries such as India have increased foreign indirect investment (FDI) limits in the telecom sectors to improve the network infrastructure in association with private industries. This has led to the expansion of 3G and 4G/LTE networks which eventually increases the network traffic through mobile devices and result in increased network interference across the communication channels. Therefore, the need for RF filters has increased owing to the need to filter data and experience seamless communication between devices. Furthermore, rising adoption of the Internet of things (IoT) and rapid Internet penetration across the globe to operate wireless devices are likely to drive the RF market during the forecast period. On the other hand, high cost of software to simulate the RF filter for high scale mobile applications are hindering the growth of the RF filter market during the assessment period.
