5G RF Power Semiconductor Device Sales for Wireless Infrastructure Drove Overall Market Growth to Nearly US$1.5 Billion in 2019

10 Nov 2020

2019 was again a banner year for RF Power Semiconductors for wireless infrastructure with a healthy increase over 2018. Devices for 5G now account for about 50% of new device sales, finds global tech market advisory firm, ABI Research.

The China and the Asia-Pacific region in general continues to be the main driver for the RF power semiconductor devices that are sold into the mobile wireless infrastructure segment but 5G deployments in North America also came into play in a meaningful way. According to research director Lance Wilson, “Historically, China and A/P have dominated growth in RF power devices for wireless infrastructure but now other regions, principally North America and Europe, are starting to assert themselves.”

The 4G/LTE air interface will continue to be a technology engine of revenue for the next five-years, but the industry is now seeing major shipments of Si LDMOS for 5G. Although, GaN (Gallium Nitride) devices had an increasing share the 2019 story was still about Silicon LDMOS which continues to dominate this segment by a large margin.

“The increasing and critical need for wireless data remains an important driver for the overall market for RF power semiconductor devices,” Wilson concludes.
