Increased Demand for MMICs in the Smartphone Industry is Propelling the Growth of the Monolithic Microwave IC Market.

Globally, the monolithic microwave IC (MMIC) market is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of more than 10.9% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027, starting from US$7.2 Bn in 2018.

Globally, MMIC devices are used as components of choice for numerous high-frequency applications. The adoption of MMIC is based mainly upon the advantages of these devices, such as their reduced size, low cost, and high reproducibility capabilities. These devices usually perform microwave mixing, high-frequency switching, low-noise amplification, and power amplification. The global MMIC market is experiencing a boost based on its increasing smartphone implementation. The rapid development of the smartphone industry has primarily contributed to the growing market size and growth of this market.

Additionally, various industrial sectors, such as defense, aerospace, and wireless communication organizations, are increasingly adopting the E band to meet the increasing bandwidth requirements. Furthermore, increasing spending in the military and defense industry across the globe is driving the growth of the MMIC market. Moreover, the rapid evolution of 5G technology and the growing number of space programs are also fueling the demand for MMIC globally.

However, factors such as the high development cost of MMIC and maintaining the quality and robustness of MMICs are likely to hinder the adoption and market growth of MMIC during the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

The attenuators segment is expected to display significant growth opportunities during the forecast period.

Based on the component, the attenuators segment will experience rapid growth during the forecast period. Attenuators are extensively used in telecommunication and electronic applications, primarily to adjust signal levels. MMIC can not only adjust the signal levels but also compensate for fundamental deviations in operating temperature.

Attenuators are commonly used in applications that require a reasonable amount of modifiable attenuation control from direct current to millimeter frequencies. Furthermore, in test equipment and military and commercial systems, MMIC attenuators are ideally used for high-frequency and broadband communication.

They can also be used as a general-purpose building block in communication systems. These MMIC attenuators' applications have created a considerable demand for this component in the end-use industry. This high demand is expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the MMIC attenuators market during the forecast period.
