A radio-frequency power semiconductor is a device that can be utilized as switch or rectifier in power electronics. This RF power semiconductor is designed to work in radio-frequency spectrum, which is about 3 kHz up to 300 GHz.

Increasing use of long-term evolution (LTE) and deployment of next-generation wireless networks such as 5G are key factors that are expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the global radio-frequency (RF) power semiconductor devices market during the forecast period, owing to the increasing popularity of mobile computing devices such as smartphones and tablets. Increase in adoption of wireless technology such as LTE demanding for RF features in smartphones, tablets, and other relevant devices due to the requirement to improve high-performance RF filters to cater the requirements of smartphones and other relevant device OEMs are the factors fueling the growth of RF power semiconductors market. According to Coherent Market Insights analysis, in 2016, around 350 units of mobile devices were sold globally, which accounted for an increase of over 3.7% from 2015. Revenue generated by smartphone devices accounted for over 70% sales of the global mobile devices in 2016. According to global internet report 2016 published by Internet Society Organization, in 2015 total internet users was about 3 billion and in 2016 the total count of internet users was over 3.2 billion.

However, the increase in the cost of RF devices is expected to restraint the growth of the global RF power semiconductor market.
