RF die products are electronic devices which are used to receive and transmit signals between two devices. There are different types of RF die products such as power amplifiers, filters, frequency multiplier and attenuator. Power amplifiers are the most common type of RF die products which are used to increase the magnitude of power of input signals. RF die products are used in wireless data transmissions, digital video/audio transmission, digital home automation such as remote light/switch, wireless home security systems and wireless fire protection systems.
The global RF die products market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020–2027). The market growth is majorly attributed to the increasing sale of smart phones around the globe. In recent years, the smart phone market has shown significant growth in terms of revenue due to constant product developments by manufacturers to offer improved performance, long battery life and more AI features. According to the Coherent Market Insights analysis, number of smart phones users in 2019 were 3.3 Billion across the globe. The number of smart phone users are also expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. RF die products such as low power Integrated Circuits are used to improve the battery life. These factors are expected to aid positive growth of the RD die products market during the forecast period.
Rise in the cost of raw materials required for production of RF die products are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period. Raw materials required in the production of the RF die products include silicon wafers, chemicals, and photoresist materials. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ 2020 analysis, the price of the silicon wafers is expected to increase at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand of RF die products from smart phone manufactures.
North America held dominant position in the global RF die products market in 2019, accounting for 34.7% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively.
