China Drives RF Power Amplifier Sales for Wireless Infrastructure to Nearly US$5 Billion in 2014

Oyster Bay, New York - 01 Jun 2015

​The year 2014 was strong for wireless infrastructure hardware—especially RF power amplifiers—and prospects look good for growth through 2020. The Asia-Pacific region, including Japan, continues to account for the majority of RF power amplifiers that are sold into the mobile wireless infrastructure segment. According to ABI Research’s Research Director Lance Wilson, “For the foreseeable future the Asia-Pacific region, particularly China, will remain the most important region and focus for RF power amplifiers for wireless infrastructure.”

LTE and TD-LTE have become increasingly important factors in this business and will continue as the engines of growth for the future. “Although up until 2014, LTE had not significantly impacted RF power amplifier sales to the degree some would have wished,” says Wilson, “that has changed now and as 2014 demonstrated, it is going to drive RF power sales in the wireless infrastructure space from 2015 onward.” The continuing overall need for wireless data remains an important driver for the overall market for RF power amplifiers for wireless infrastructure.

ABI Research’s report RF Power Amplifier Equipment for Cellular and Wireless Infrastructure examines quantitatively how RF power amplifiers are evolving to the changing topologies of modern basestations, remote radio heads, and active antennas. Quantitative forecasts are presented through 2020.
