September 22, 2022 | Aerospace & Defense

The global microwave devices market size was USD 5.85 billion in 2021. The market size is expected to rise from USD 6.09 billion in 2022 to USD 9.88 billion by 2029 at a CAGR of 7.15% during the forecast period.

Fortune Business Insights™ published this information in its report titled, “Microwave Devices Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Active and Passive), By Frequency (Ku-Band, Ka-Band, S-Band, C-Band, X-Band, L-Band, and Others), By End-use Industry (Telecommunication, Space, Defense, Industrial, Healthcare, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029.”

 Halted Manufacturing Operations Amid Pandemic Hampered Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the microwave devices market growth due to disruptions in the supply chain and revised import/export policies. Also, government imposed strict restrictions on transportation and travel activities hampered the supply of essential raw materials and affected the production and manufacturing rate of the leading companies. Furthermore, the companies started recovering due to increasing demand for microwave solutions. 

Russia-Ukraine War Impact Restrained the Market Growth

The Russia-Ukraine war crisis hampered the avionics and electronic industry to a greater extent. Also, Ukraine is the largest provider of neon gas and semiconductor-grade neon tube. The war crisis affected the supply chain of these gases from Ukraine to other countries. The closure of national borders affected the supply of essential electronic and semiconductor devices required by the aviation sector.
