RF or Radio Frequency is a measurement technique which is used to ascertain the oscillation rate of electromagnetic radio waves. The frequency of electromagnetic radio waves ranges from 300 GHz to as low as 9 kHz. The radio waves are used mainly for wireless communication with the use of antennas and transmitters. The radio-frequency power semiconductor is a device which is used as switch or rectifier in power electronics for wireless communication. Hence they are extensively used in cellular and mobile phone applications. These RF devices are crucial components in all base stations for cellular and mobile wireless infrastructure. They also find their use in various applications such as air traffic control system, marine, military, aerospace, energy and medical. The radio-frequency power semiconductor devices are also extensively used for consumer electronics, aerospace, automotive, telecommunication and data communication applications.
The prime factor which drives the global market of RF power semiconductor devices includes wide employment of wireless networks such as long-term evolution (LTE) and 5G across the computing devices. Apart from this, increasing use of electronic devices such as tablets and smart phones and intensive adoption of RF power in lighting applications also stimulate the global growth of the market significantly. However, a steep rise in the cost of RF device following performance improvement of the device and fewer profit margins for RF device suppliers threatens the market growth.
The regional market of APAC is expected to contribute maximum to the global growth of RF power semiconductor devices on account of the established electronics industry in the region due to the presence of major industrial players and low manufacturing costs.
