Drivers – Millimeter Wave Market
Technological Advancements in Communication Systems
High adoption of millimeter wave technology to provide wireless communication in smart wearable, smartphones and smartwatches have fuelled the millimeter wave market growth. Technological advances in digital networks connect a number of devices and sensors together, which ensures advances in healthcare, education, transportation, automotive, telecommunication, and other industries. In addition, an increase in demand for higher bandwidth increases the demand for new technologies such as mm-wave over fiber optic cable, which provides high data transmission at high rate.
Increased demand from Military and Automotive Sector
There has been a surge in demand for millimeter wave technology in unmanned vehicles owing to a shift in preference of consumers from normal cars to smart cars, which assist automatic parking, braking, GPS navigation, blind spot detection collision avoidance system, and others. Hence, such benefits can be availed only with the integration of mm-wave technology. In addition, millimeter wave technology aids in the exchange of information in military and defense sector by making use of various applications such as electronic warfare, radar, tactical, and satellite communications. These factors are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the millimeter-wave technology market globally.
Challenges – Millimeter Wave Market
Limited Network Range
One of the major challenges faced by millimeter wave market is its limited range. As per the laws of physics, the shorter the wavelength, the shorter is the transmission range for a given power. While signals at poor frequency bands can spread apart many miles, and enter more easily through rigid structures, millimeter-wave signals travel only a few miles, and do not penetrate concrete materials effectively. This challenge restrains the range to 10 meters or less, thereby hindering the growth of the global millimeter wave market.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the mobile VoIP market. In 2018, the market of millimeter-wave has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for around 65% of the share. Major players in the Millimeter Wave Market are Millivision Technologies, SAGE Millimeter Inc., Keysight Technologies, Vubiq Networks Inc, BridgeWave Communications, E-Band Communications, LLC, Aviat Networks, NEC Corporation and Siklu Communication Ltd. among others.
