Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Filters Market Expected to Reach $9.94 Billion by 2030

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Filters Market by Type, Enterprise Size, Frequency Range, and Industry Vertical: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” the global surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters industry was valued at $4.56 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $9.94 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.5%. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the leading contributor toward the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market share during the forecast period, followed by Europe, and LAMEA.  

Surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters are a semiconductor device, which is utilized to filter out IF & RF frequencies. These filters are generally used in wireless devices such as cell phones. A SAW filter uses the piezoelectric effect to transform the information signal into vibrations, which are then transformed into an electrical signal in the required frequency range.

Factors, such as need for multiple bands in Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and surge in usage of small & low-cost filters in smartphones, are anticipated to drive the growth of the market. In addition, adoption of SAW filters in RADAR systems boosts the overall surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market growth. However, high power consumption issue of SAW filters acts as a major restraint of the global market growth. On the contrary, continuous rise in number of subscribers and new application areas of wireless technologies is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the SAW filters market players.

Moreover, developing nations tend to witness high penetration of SAW filter products, especially in the telecom sector, which is anticipated to augment the market growth. Further, the growing 5G technology accelerates the market growth.

The global surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market share is segmented on the basis of type, enterprise size, frequency range, industry vertical, and region. By type, the market is bifurcated into RF SAW filters and IF SAW filters. Depending on enterprise size, the market is categorized into small & medium enterprise and large enterprise. By frequency range, it is fragmented into less than 100 MHz, 101–1,000 MHz, 1,001–2,000 MHz, and more than 2,000 MHz. On the basis of industry vertical, the market is classified into consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace & defense, telecommunications, and others.

Region-wise, the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market trends have been analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America contributed maximum revenue in 2020. However, between 2020 and 2030, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at a faster rate as compared to other regions. This is attributed to increase in demand from the emerging economical countries such as India, China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea.


The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly affected the electronics and semiconductor sector. Business and manufacturing units across various countries were closed, owing to increase in number of COVID-19 cases, and are expected to remain closed in 2021. Furthermore, partial or complete lockdown has disrupted the global supply chain posing challenges for manufactures to reach customers.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the globe. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the overall business globally. The crisis is creating uncertainty in the stock market and is resulting in falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among the customer segments.

Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered major loss of business and revenue due to the shutdown of manufacturing units. The operations of the production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease, which further impacted the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market growth.

In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the electronics sector as production facilities have stalled, which, in turn, boosted the demand for electronics and semiconductor products in the industries. Its major impact includes large-scale manufacturing interruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which may hinder the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market.
