Global Waveguide Connector Market: Snapshot 

Waveguide connectors are used for connecting two waveguide sections. They are used in wireless connectivity particularly in devices that use microwave and radio frequencies. A variety of flanges can be used as interfaces for connecting multiple waveguide components. Advances in waveguide flange designs have led to the advent of different formats to meet the needs of waveguide connectors from different manufacturers. Standardization in flange design has eased the connection. Two of the key standards adopted are MIL-DTL-3922 and IEC 60154 by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).Various methods have been adopted to minimize the leakage in waveguide connectors. While it is difficult to completely prevent leakage particularly at the edge of waveguide connectors, to keep the leakage to an acceptable level a few operational factors are kept in mind. The surfaces of waveguide connectors should be clean and dirt-free. Further, bolts must be tightened to the required torque level. 

Key factors that concern end-use industries of the waveguide connectors market in minimizing the leakage from the flanges are: 

  • Flange resistance is a key factor attracting attention and steps are taken to minimize the instances of this resistance. Resistance can be found between the two waveguide flanges, at the surface, and close to the cavity. 
  • Manufacturers are striving to machine waveguide connectors to high torque level. However, the adoption of such products are impacted by cost concerns. However, the growing demand for waveguide connectors for high-power application might offset these drawbacks. 
  • Recent manufacturers have unveiled waveguide connectors that allow multi-step transition, such as low VSWR transition. This leads to more compact designs and ultimately better performance. Ease of assembling these connectors through standard flanging tools is also crucial in driving the adoption of such devices.

The increasing technological advancements have led to the extensive adoption of devices based on wireless connectivity. In order to have a non-interfering transmission of signals and data between transmitter and receiver, a device named waveguide connector is used. These devices are flanges which act as a connector between the waveguide. A waveguide is any linear structure that enables transfer of electromagnetic waves between endpoints. A waveguide connector is mostly used for devices working on microwave and radio frequencies. These connectors play a major role in wireless devices because, in wireless connectivity, there is no particular physical medium to transfer the signals at various frequencies. Thus, in such situations, there are chances of collision between signals traveling through same frequency. In order to avoid this collision, waveguide connectors are used which are fixed at transmitting and receiving end where it separates the transmitting frequencies and recollects them at the receiving end.

Waveguide Connector: Drivers and Restraints

The increasing demand for miniaturized electronic devices has led to the higher adoption of waveguide connectors. Also, increasing number of wirelessly connecting devices is boosting the growth of waveguide connector in the market due to growing number of applications of wireless connectivity.

Integration of waveguide connectors into existing transmitting and receiving devices in order to avoid interference is a complex task which requires skilled labors. Such factors restraints the growth of the market. Also, development of devices like SoC (system on chip) working on radio frequencies are giving high competition to waveguide connectors which hinders their market growth. 

Investment in the innovation of new products and launch are the key trends in the waveguide connector market.
