Various RF components, such as RF amplifiers, transistors, diodes, and filters, are integrated into industrial robots for wireless connectivity applications. According to October 2021 press release by International Federation of Robotics, there were around three million operational industrial robots operating around factories across the globe. Also, the worldwide industrial robot sales increased by 10% in 2020 compared to 2019. The industrial robots are also equipped with radio frequency controllers, radar modules, IoT sensors, and RFID chipsets for remote monitoring and controlling applications. Adding to this, the proliferation of smart factories across North America and APAC economies will further amplify the adoption of RF components over the forecast timeframe.

The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the RF components market expansion in the first half of 2020. In early 2020, several government bodies and regulatory authorities imposed stringent lockdowns to limit the spread of COVID-19 virus. This has resulted into international trade barriers and supply-chain disruptions of raw material and components that had lowered the market demand for RF components during pandemic. However, as of 2022, several RF components manufacturers have realigned their supply chains by collaborating with regional raw material suppliers. This is expected to lower the impact of COVID-19 pandemic for manufacturers in coming years.

Technological advancements in RF power amplifiers will spur the market progression

The power amplifier segment held 25% of the RF components market share in 2021 and is projected to witness 17.5% growth rate through 2028. The industry growth is credited to several features offered by the RF power amplifiers such as higher amplification of weak radio signals, better selectivity, high sensitivity, and higher signal-to-noise ratio. These features increase their market acceptance across military warfare systems, public safety wireless radio equipment, and military radios. The market players are highly engaged in the development of technically advanced RF components to achieve a competitive advantage in the industry.
