Monolithic Microwave IC Market to grow at a CAGR of 9.8%


The monolithic microwave IC (MMIC) market is predicted to account for US$ 24 billion in 2032, up from US$ 9.1 billion in 2022, advancing at a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period (2022-2032).

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a slight but noticeable influence on overall shipment on the demand for MMIC. The COVID-19 outbreak has improved the wireless communication infrastructure.  Increased defense spending by governments to upgrade their defense inventory, together with rising demand for fast data transfer rates impacted by the future 5G technology, are creating profitable opportunities in the MMIC market.

The MMIC in smartphones also allows for the maximum network efficiency, as well as lower transmission power and bit error rates, and accelerates the MMIC market size.

MMIC market trends are also intended to expand the spectrum of frequencies used for mobile communication, allowing for higher data transfer rates and the usage of transmission bandwidths.

North America is the leading market in the MMIC. Followed by this, Asia Pacific and Europe have the growth potential with the significant growing rate. Asia Pacific has significantly growing MMIC market share and the fastest growth rate is likely to continue during the projection period.
