RF Tunable Filter Market Emerging Trends, Growth Insights 2030
According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global RF tunable filter market size is expected to grow from USD 92.8 million in 2021 to USD 226.1 million by 2030

According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global RF tunable filter market size is expected to grow from USD 92.8 million in 2021 to USD 226.1 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2022 to 2030. RF tunable filters are electronic components that allow or block chosen signals or frequencies in order to reduce noise or undesired signal pass-through. The radio frequency spectrum comprises the electromagnetic framework's collection of frequencies from 30 Hz to 300 GHz. For ease of identification, it is separated into multiple ranges or bands and labeled as low frequency (LF), medium frequency (MF), and high frequency (HF).

Global RF Tunable Filter Market Definition

The increasing growth of 5G networks drives the demand for new and higher frequency bands with high-performance demands for RF filters. The growth of 4G LTE networks and the rising use of future 5G networks and Wi-Fi have boosted the use of RF bands supported by smartphones and other mobile devices.

The telecommunications sector is creating novel resonating structures at these high frequencies to filter out unneeded interference signals. As a result, increased 5G deployment and bandwidth demands of 5G networks are expected to provide lucrative chances for a new generation of RF filters, which, in turn, requires a new generation of tunable RF filters offering throughput and providing signal coexistence.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global RF Tunable Filter Market

COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on every area and industry in North America. The area had the greatest number of cases worldwide. The region's governments saw serious disruptions in the aerospace and defense, transportation, healthcare, smart cities, and mining industries, resulting in the entire or partial suspension of production facilities. As a result, the RF tunable filter industry has been impacted by the crisis. The pandemic has had a considerable impact on the supply chains of major RF tunable filter producers, particularly those situated in the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Brazil, India, and France.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, RF tunable filter producers were confident that inventory levels would normalize in 2020, owing to the increased deployment of 5G technology and the global smartphone user population. However, since the viral epidemic, the demand for RF tunable filters has dropped dramatically. Nonetheless, global demand for RF tunable filters surged after the first quarter of 2021.

Global RF Tunable Filter Market Dynamics

DriversThe aerospace and defence industries are increasing the need for RF tunable filters

As communication devices help personnel on the battlefield, the aerospace and military industries produce a significant need for RF tunable filters. As a result, stakeholders in the aerospace and military industries primarily focus on updating combat and tactical vehicles to increase ground forces' mobility, protection, and lethality. Modern digital electronics are used in combat and tactical vehicles for command, control, communication, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (C4ISTAR) applications. C4ISTAR delivers greater situational awareness, secure and dynamic network connectivity, and improved combat effectiveness to commanders and crew.

Maintaining continuous mobile connections regardless of location has raised the demand for Satellite Communication (SATCOM), particularly SATCOM on-the-move (SOTM) products and service offerings. These SOTM systems employ Ku and Ka frequency band antennas to better data speeds at the fleet and unit levels. They also provide secure, out-of-sight communications for military soldiers working in distant areas. High-quality voice and data communication is made possible by RF tunable filters. As a result, they are widely employed in the worldwide aerospace and military industries.

Restraints: RF tunable filters have a high capital requirement and a short life lifetime

The production of RF tunable filters necessitates a significant investment. SAW filters, oscillator filters, digitally tunable capacitors (DTCs), RF MEMS capacitors, varactor diodes, and surface-mount device (SMD) versions are used in these tunable filters. Companies must consider numerous aspects when switching from one tuning component to another, including end-user needs, semiconductor industry developments, and frequency or bandwidth range. To that end, RF tunable filter manufacturers must continually spend on R&D.

OpportunitiesIncrease in 5G technology deployment and adoption of IoT devices

5G technology stretches the bounds of wireless communications by allowing cases that need ultra-fast bandwidth, minimal latency, and high dependability. Higher data speeds, better coverage, and improved spectral efficiency need the development of a 5G network architecture. This network can support numerous modes and frequencies, allowing older systems to be upgraded to 5G. Several companies, including EXFO Inc., NXP Semiconductors, and NewEdge Signal Solutions Inc., are working on 5G-enabled RF solutions to serve high-growth regions. The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has created a new radio access technology known as 5G new radio (NR), which is intended to become the global standard for 5G networks.

The 5G NR specification contains numerous low and mid-frequency bands in the sub-7 GHz range, FR1, and higher frequency bands over 24 GHz, FR2/mmWave. 5G frequency encompasses all previous cellular spectrum and extra spectrum in the sub-7 GHz frequency range and beyond to overcome physical throughput and bandwidth limitations.
