The new report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global RF Devices for Cellular Market: Avago Technologies Ltd., Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd., RF Micro Devices Inc. (RFMD), Skyworks Solutions Inc. and TriQuint Semiconductor Inc.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ams, Anadigicis, EPCOS, M/A-COM Technology Solutions and Renesas.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the report's team said: “One of the emerging market trends is the rapid technological advancements. Cellphone manufacturers are constantly adding and upgrading new technology to their products, resulting in the launch of new, innovative RF devices in the market. The need of RF devices in cellphones is constantly growing with these advancements as they provide substantial cost, power, and space-saving opportunities to customers.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the deployment of next-generation long-term evolution wireless networks. The continuous evolution of wireless standards has compelled wireless communication device manufacturers to develop and design multi-mode and multi-band devices, which is fueling the demand for RF devices in wireless communication devices such as cellphones.
Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry is one of the major challenges in the market. Consumer electronic goods such as cellphones have fluctuating demand because of seasonal cycles and this often leads to high inventory levels. This often leads to a demand-supply gap and inventory stockpile. Any fluctuations in demand from end-users indirectly affect the RF devices manufacturers.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
