Surge in the adoption of higher bandwidth with high internet speed will drive the MMW technology’s market growth
Electromagnetic technology, also known as millimeter waves, is used in smartphones, autos, and other electronic devices to ensure faster wireless internet connections. As it shows a signal spectrum extending from 30 GHz to 300 GHz within a limited region of wavelength between 1 and 10 mm, these millimeter wave devices operate at extremely high frequency (EHF). Millimeter wave technology is gaining traction in both the industrial and commercial sectors as a means of delivering wireless connectivity to smart devices and wearables. High-speed online gaming, video conferencing, media exchange over the internet, and video streaming are all likely to raise the demand for more bandwidth, which will boost the demand for millimeter wave technology acceptance.
Other factors attributing to the growth of the global millimeter wave technology market includes increased adoption of small-cell backhaul networks, surge in market demand for security and radar applications, rising adoption of millimeter wave technology-based scanner systems in airports worldwide will escalate the market development of millimeter wave technology solutions. The continuous penetration of cloud computing, internet services, and e-government services is more likely to drive demand beyond the forecasted period.
The Limited Range and Environmental Concern may Stymie the Growth
One of the key issues facing the millimeter wave technology business is the limited range of the technology. The shorter the wavelength, the lower the transmission range for a given power, according to the law of physics. While signals in lower frequency bands can travel more miles and pass through hard structures more easily, millimeter wave signals only travel a few miles and can not penetrate concrete materials efficiently. This limitation limits the range to 10 meters or less, limiting the worldwide millimeter wave technology market's growth.
The decreasing penetration power and adverse impact on the environment will hamper the growth of the global millimeter wave technology market during the forecast period. The physical attributes of millimeter waves may pose a further impediment to the millimeter wave technology market's growth in the near future.
The rising novel applications in the defense and aerospace sector, development of autonomous vehicles, increased number of IoT devices, and adoption of V-band millimeter wave for last-mile connectivity will create significant market opportunities in the millimeter wave technology solutions industry.
Due to a shift in consumer choice from conventional automobiles to smart driver's assistant cars that aid with automatic parking, braking, GPS navigation, blind-spot detection, collision avoidance system, and other features, thereby increased the market demand for millimeter wave technology in unmanned vehicles. As a result, such advantages can only be obtained through the use of millimeter wave technology.
North America contributes the largest share in the millimeter wave technology market owing to higher adoption of bandwidth-intensive mobile communications, implementation of small-cell backhauls networks, and creation of developed millimeter-wave-based interferometric synthetic aperture and security solutions, thereby driving the growth in the region.
Asia-Pacific contributes the fastest market revenue in the millimeter wave technology and is anticipated to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period. China and South Korea are the key contributors owing to initiatives by the government, development, and upgradation of telecom infrastructure, and increased funding for R&D activities.
