Global and China Connectivity RF Industry Report, 2014-2015
The report covers the followings:
  1. Introduction to Connectivity RF
  2. Analysis on Connectivity RF Market
  3. Analysis on Connectivity RF Industry
  4. Research on 20 Connectivity RF Companies
A Connectivity RF system is a radio frequency system consisting of electronic devices connected to the network, mainly applied to mobile phones, tablet PCs, laptopsand WLAN / PAN now, and will find wide application in IoT (Internet of Things).

The Connectivity RF system market size reached approximately USD7.516 billion in 2014, showing a substantial rise of 23.4% over 2013. In 2015, the market size is expected to go up by 34.1% year on year to USD10.08 billion. It will maintain the growth rate of 17.3% by 2016, becoming the fastest growing field among all electronic components.

The rapid growth of the Connectivity RF system market is primarily prompted by 4G mobile phones. A standard 2G mobile phone requires a Connectivity RF system costing only about USD0.55, a 3G phone USD2.75, while a 4G phone up to USD8 and a global standard 4G phone USD13 or above. The penetration rate of 4G phones in China is the highest in the world. China’s 4G mobile phone shipment only accounted for 2% of the total mobile phone shipment in December 2013, but the proportion jumped to 71% in December 2014 and more than 80% in March 2015.

In 2015, a wave of 4G phone replacement will speed up worldwide, which will stimulate the Connectivity RF system market.

The rapid growth of 802.11ac is another driving engine. Less than 10% of WiFi supported 802.11ac in 2014, while the proportion is expected to be 80% in 2018. The Connectivity RF cost of 802.11ac is much higher than that of the current mainstream 802.11a/b/g. The next development direction of LTE will be carrier aggregation (CA). The shipment of mobile phones supporting carrier aggregation only amounted to 108 million units in 2014, and is expected to reach 1.185 billion units by 2018. Carrier aggregation makes Connectivity RF more complex and costly.

The core of a Connectivity RF system includes PA and filters (the fastest growing segment). LTE-FDD's Band 8, 13 and 26 need TC-SAW, Band 4, 5, 12, 17, 20, 27 and 28 require SAW, Band 2, 3, 7, 23, 25 and 30 demand BAW, while LTE-TDD’s Band 38, 10, 41, 42 and 43 use SAW.

In the highly concentrated Connectivity RF system industry, the top five companies enjoy over 97% market share, which is hard for small firmsto survive. One reason is that PA requires unique GaAs wafers instead of the traditional Si wafers; the other reason rests with the high production threshold in the filter field. All laboratories can accomplish trial production, but only a handful of companies (mainly Japanese companies) are capable to conduct mass production with high consistency and quality. Major SAW companies embrace Murata, TDK and Fujitsu. Panasonic and Qorvo target TC-SAW. Avago, Qorvo, Taiyoyuden and TDK focus on BAW.

Qorvo is a new company after the merger of RFMD and Triquint. Taiwanese companies witness the fastest growth in 2015. For example, Skyworks and Avago outsource considerable products to their foundries Win and AWSC respectively, especially Avago lavish huge capital on acquisitions to significantly reduce manufacturing costs, so that AWSC’s revenue will ascend by at least 200% in 2015.
