Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Filters Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026


Surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter is a filter in which the electrical input signal is transformed into mechanical or acoustic wave using inter-digital transducers on a piezoelectric substrate like quartz. Surface acoustic wave filters are used widely in 2G receiver front ends and in receive filters and duplexers. The most common group of surface acoustic wave filters are band pass filters, which are used widely in domestic TV and radio systems including base stations and mobile phone handsets. Increasing use of SAW filters in communication technology is expected to drive the growth prospects of the global surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter market. Surface acoustic wave filters are also increasingly used in various mobile phone applications for filtering purpose and offer advantages related to size and cost. SAW filters that operates in gigahertz (GHz) range are widely used in mobile communication systems.

Surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters are extensively used in satellite broadcasting, cellular phones, wireless communication modules, and keyless entry systems. Therefore, demand for SAW filters is much higher than other SAW devices like oscillators, resonators and transducers. Increasing adoption of tablets, smartphones and other touch-screen based devices is estimated to uplift the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market during the forecast period. Touch screens are gaining lot of traction across several verticals including automotive, medical, consumer electronics, etc. The demand for SAW touch screens has increased rapidly as it has become an alternative for optical touch screens which are relatively expensive. This, in turn is facilitating the growth of the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters globally.

Based on geography, Asia Pacific holds the largest market share in the overall surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market. This dominance can be largely credited to the large base of consumer electronics and telecommunications companies, especially in the countries including South Korea, China, Japan and India. Asia Pacific region being one of the fast growing consumer electronics markets worldwide represent positive outlook for the market growth. Thus, Asia Pacific is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. On the other hand, surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market in North America is expected to witness fastest growth due to widespread demand for SAW filters in safety monitoring and military & defense applications. On the contrary, lack of compatibility and accuracy and minimal scope of technology upgradation are the major restraining factors affecting the growth of the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market worldwide.
