Increased need to improve RF link quality
Smartphones face several difficulties in improving the RF link quality. Smartphone manufacturers cannot integrate wide-band passive antennas on a printed circuit board because of miniaturization, which is becoming a key trend in the industry. Antenna tuners, such as tunable capacitors, are necessary to achieve a high RF link quality. Without the use of such tuners, the performance of the device is significantly affected.
The use of the latest telecom standards, such as LTE and 4G, worldwide has led to the introduction of many new bands of frequencies that require support. Smartphone manufacturers have now started using high-powered tunable capacitors to overcome this challenge. Thus, there will be a significant increase in demand for tunable capacitors during the forecast period.
Growth in shipments of LTE-enabled computing devices
The deployment of LTE networks is increasing in developed and developing economies. LTE-enabled devices are expected to account for around 50% of all smartphone shipments, and this value will likely increase to over 72% by 2020.
In 2016, the shipment of smartphones in India grew by around 30%, making India one of the fastest-growing smartphone markets in APAC. South Korea, Japan, the US, India, and China are the major countries that are witnessing a high demand for LTE-based handsets. Apple, SAMSUNG, Lenovo, and LG Electronics dominate the LTE-enabled handset market. The increase in shipments of LTE-enabled devices across regions will drive the adoption of tunable capacitors among computing device manufacturers, resulting in market growth.
Increasing investments in R&D for hybrid tunable capacitors
In recent years, market vendors have been increasingly spending a significant volume of their revenue on R&D activities to gain an advantage over their competitors and to obtain larger market shares.
“The key buying criteria for tunable capacitors is a high signal strength, reliability, and efficiency, which can be achieved or improved through R&D. For manufacturers of tunable capacitors, the R&D department is crucial because the company can display its superior innovations as a competitive advantage over other players,” says Chetan.
Leading manufacturers have been engaged in carrying out R&D activities in hybrid capacitors. They have announced the development of new hybrid microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based tunable capacitors that have low loss and corresponding high Q. These new products are a result of extensive R&D by market vendors. The increase in R&D expenditure is expected to drive the growth of the global tunable capacitors market during the forecast period.
