Millimeter Wave Technology Market To Reach $38.55 Billion By 2030

January 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Millimeter Wave Technology Market Growth & Trends

The global millimeter wave technology market size is anticipated to reach USD 38.55 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 39.7% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Millimeter waves are radio frequencies operating in the electromagnetic spectrum of 30 GHz to 300GHz, also known as Extremely High-Frequency (EHF) range. As millimeter waves can transmit large amounts of data with greater efficiency, they hold a significant application across the telecommunication industry.

Fiber-optic cables are one of the best transmission mediums used extensively for data transmission. However, the fiber optics technology is extremely costly, and the network is highly tedious to install, posing the millimeter wave technology as an appealing alternative for the fiber optics medium. Millimeter wave technology is becoming more affordable in high-intensity data transfer applications, thus driving the market’s growth.

The market is highly consolidated regarding applications and components, where it is extensively used. The primary application areas of the technology include telecommunication, military & defense, medical, and security services. The advancements in the telecom industry are leading to the evolution of next-generation technologies such as 5G, which is creating significant growth opportunities for the market.

Owing to the demand for higher bandwidths in fifth-generation technology, millimeter waves are expected to play a prominent role in developing 5G technology. As the market is experiencing a shift toward adopting fifth-generation technology, the market is thus anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period.

However, only a limited number of devices currently support MMW technology, which may limit its adoption and market potential in the short term. Additionally, deploying MMW technology requires regulatory approval and licensing, which can be a time-consuming and costly process in some regions. Moreover, the implementation cost of MMW technology is relatively high due to the need for specialized equipment and infrastructure, which makes it less accessible and affordable for some markets. However, the market is anticipated to overcome these short-term challenges and witness long-term growth over the forecast period.
