Market Overview

Global Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Devices Market to Witness a CAGR of 7.1% during 2018-2024


NEW YORK, July 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global surface acoustic wave (SAW) device market was valued at USD 2,155 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 3,464 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 7.1%. Factors driving the growth of the market are; increasing demand for cost effective small sensors in healthcare sector, increasing adoption of touch-based devices, and growing applications of SAW device in various end-use industries. Furthermore, increasing usage of oscillators in radios and TV transmitters for broadcasting the signals is further boosting the market growth.

SAWs are the type of sound waves that propagate along the surface of the piezoelectric material, with the amplitude decaying into the substrate, so as to confine to only one wavelength of the material. SAW devices are employed to discharge surface propagating waves that form on a substrate. Furthermore, these devices have wide range of applications in geophysics, electronic devices such as television and radio, micro fluidics and flow measurement. SAW devices are employed in micro fluids to identify any mismatch in sound velocity. Furthermore, in seismology, SAW devices are critical elements for discharging the waves that travel on the Earth's surface and is of prime importance for detection of seismic waves produced from earthquakes.

Rising adoption of SAW sensors in Communication Sector

Surface acoustic wave devices are the building block of sensors and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). SAW devices have applications in various fields including communication and signal processing such as bandpass filters installed in TV systems, GPS receivers in L band, space communications, mobile telephony, and digital optical communications, among others.  The increasing adoption of SAW sensors in communication sector is expected to drive the demand for SAW devices during the forecast period.
