This coupler had a tiny package of 1.60 x 1.10 inches (40.64 mm x 27.94 mm).
The rising demand for 90-degree hybrid couplers in different applications requires wide frequency coverage such as electronic warfare, electronic warfare (EW), antenna beamforming, signal monitoring commercial wireless, SATCOM, radar, measurement commercial wireless, and other applications shall have a positive impact on the market growth.
The global 90-degree hybrid couplers market is segmented on type as surface mount 90-degree hybrid couplers, drop-in 90-degree hybrid couplers, impedance transforming 90-degree hybrid couplers, connectorized 90-degree hybrid couplers, legacy 90-degree hybrid couplers, and others. Surface mount 90-degree hybrid couplers segment accounts for the significant market share due to its increased usage in power amplifiers, mixers, power dividers, power combiners, modulators, antenna feeds, attenuators, switches, and phase shifters because of its properties such as low insertion loss, low VSWR and high power capability. Surface mount 90-degree hybrid couplers are available in narrow and broadband bandwidths.
The Drop-in, 90-degree hybrid couplers segment is expected to have positive market growth due to the various ROHS compliant devices in the market. These hybrid couplers provide high power dividing or combining while exhibiting excellent phase and amplitude balance over the continuous broadband operation. Drop-in 90 degree hybrid couplers are the preferred choice for medical, industrial, commercial wireless, military, and space industries.
Further, the market is also classified based on power level as under 5-watt coupler, 5- watt to 10-watt coupler, and above 10 watts. The 5-watt coupler segment accounts for the significant market share due to their high usage in image Reject Mixers, SSB modulators, I & Q Modulators, QPSK Modulators/ Demodulators, Vector Modulators, Antenna Feed Networks, and Balanced Amplifiers. 90-degree hybrid couplers under 5 watts provide low insertion loss and ultra-wide bandwidth. These couplers are available in customized frequency ranges and phase balance options.
The above 10-watt coupler segment is expected to have positive market growth due to the increase in the development of 90-degree hybrid couplers above 10-watt by several market players. The majority of the 90-degree hybrid couplers above 10-watt are available in the 90-degree hybrid couplers above 10-watt. These hybrid couplers are ideal for test and measurement, military communications, commercial communications, wireless communications, and SATCOM.
Further, the market is also classified based on application into military, commercial, and space. The military segment accounts for a significant market share due to the rising use of 90-degree hybrid couplers in military and defense to balance power and low noise amplifiers and signal distribution. 90 Degree hybrid couplers are used to split signals from tower top amplifiers to BTS receivers.
The commercial segment is expected to have positive market growth due to increasing demand for 90-degree hybrid couplers for commercial applications, including the cover wireless, Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite communications, Wimax, Long-Term Evolution (LTE), and other applications.
By region, the global 90-degree hybrid couplers market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, the North American region is expected to have a significant market share due to the rising demand for 90-degree hybrid couplers in the military and defense. The rising government spending in the military and defense sectors shall have a positive impact on the market. According to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, the United States spend huge capital on national defense. Defense spending accounts for 15% of all federal spending. According to the National Priorities Project, military spending accounted for 54% of all federal discretionary spending in the United States. The United States military spending was 598.5 billion in 2015.
Asia Pacific region is expected to have positive market growth due to rising demand for smaller 90-degree hybrid couplers with a broader bandwidth. The advancement in the communication industry shall fuel market growth. Technological change, government regulation, and rising government and private player investment for satellite communication in developing countries,s especially India and China, could positively impact the market over the forecasted period.
The global 90-degree hybrid couplers market is highly competitive with several domestic and international market players. The new product launches and technological advancements intensify market competition. Anaren Inc, API Technologies, AtlanTecRF, Clear Microwave, Inc, Cinch Connectivity, and ET Industries are the leading market players.
Companies are focusing on new product launches, market expansion, and product diversification. For instance, In October 2017, Electro-Photonics LLC had launched a new broadband surface mount hybrid coupler operating from 1700 - 6000MHz. Its new Q3XB-4000R is a 90-degree hybrid coupler that dissipates 100W, which provides excellent coupling flatness and isolation for the most critical applications. This coupler had a tiny package of .560 x .200 inches (14.22 mm x 5.08 mm).
