Global 5G Materials Market Report 2021-2027 – Development of Alternative Radome Materials to Enable Optimal Performance, Weight and Cost Savings


DUBLIN, October 11, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – “Global 5G Materials Growth Opportunities” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The analysis indicates that the global 5G materials market is expected to register robust double-digit growth of around 14.6% in terms of volume from 2020 to 2027.

The study quantifies the consumption of key materials used in 5G network infrastructure applications (macro and micro base stations), i.e. PCB substrate materials (resins), radome materials and cable materials.

The report includes an analysis of changes in absorption of individual materials by base station (for sub-6 GHz and mmWave applications). The research service assesses the impact of ongoing trends and changing technological scenario on demand for individual materials during the forecast period (2021-2027).

The long-awaited commercialization of 5G finally came to fruition in 2019, and several countries, including the United States, South Korea and China, have taken the lead. The surge in new infrastructure investments, especially in China, will propel demand for 5G equipment and materials, leading to a wave of optimism in an otherwise capital-intensive telecommunications infrastructure equipment industry. competitive and low margin.

To cope with the exponential growth in mobile data traffic, it is imperative to switch to 5G networks as it is impossible to respond effectively to the unprecedented increase in data traffic through the expansion of existing infrastructure. 5G networks are characterized by very high speed internet connectivity, low latency and improved reliability. However, high frequencies are characterized by a high number of cycles / waves per unit of time and lead to greater signal losses, thus limiting the maximum distance traveled by the waves.

Additionally, high frequency waves are limited by their ability to penetrate hard surfaces / materials. So unlike previous generations, 5G infrastructure involves denser networks comprising both macro and small cells or base stations. As a result, the materials needed for 5G applications will be very different from those used in conventional or previous generation network infrastructures.

The study also analyzes the overall market on the basis of 5 important material types: Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Polyphenylene Oxide / Polyphenylene Ether (PPO / PPE), Hydrocarbons, Modified Epoxides and Polymers liquid crystal (LCP). It classifies 5G antenna radome materials as thermosets and thermoplastics and quantifies the consumption of these materials during the forecast period.

Additionally, the study focuses on quantifying the demand for fiber optic cables and copper coaxial cables and analyzes the consumption of key materials used in individual layers for fiber optic cables and PTFE used in cables. copper coaxial.

The raging COVID-19 pandemic (and ensuing supply chain disruptions) and political discord over security concerns associated with 5G equipment (especially against Chinese companies) have affected the pace of deployment the 5G network and collaborative development activities in all geographic areas.

Additionally, most short-term NSA deployments are expected to be in the below 6 GHz frequency range, which overlaps with 4G / LTE infrastructure. Some infrastructure will also allow software upgrades to 5G, which will impact the growth of the 5G materials market in the near term.

However, the commercial deployment of 5G autonomous networks is expected to accelerate in the medium term. The transition and proliferation of high-functionality 5G networks imply significant developments in terms of equipment (and the value-added materials used there). The wide adoption and use of specific materials for 5G applications (for sub-6 GHz and mmWave applications) will usher in a wave of innovative materials and alternatives.

Robust growth in investments in 5G, the aggressive pace of 5G base station installations, especially in China, and the inherent need for materials in 5G equipment compared to previous generation equipment provide a strong growth opportunity for companies. incumbent operators throughout the value chain including materials suppliers, CCL manufacturers, PCB suppliers and equipment suppliers / integrators.

In addition, the market must continue to ensure agility of material sourcing across geographies and reduce lead times associated with specialized CCLs used in 5G applications.
