A recent report ongoing by
Infinium Global Research on TDD and FDD spectrum market provides in-depth
analysis of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as regional TDD and
FDD spectrum market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers,
restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional TDD and FDD
spectrum market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a
comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of the global TDD
and FDD spectrum market. According to the report, the global TDD and FDD
spectrum market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast
period of 2021-2027.
TDD and FDD are two different set
of spectrum technologies used for varied range of applications of wireless
communications. TDD stands for Time Division Duplexing and FDD stands for
Frequency Division Duplexing. FDD uses two separate frequencies for receiving
and transmitting while TDD uses only one frequency to do the same. FDD is the
traditionally used spectrum technique in wireless communication which is being
challenged by the TDD. TDD is better in capacity while FDD is optimal in
coverage. TDD and FDD both have advantages and disadvantages over each other.
Though in the wake of constantly changing landscape of wireless communication, FDD
and TDD can be combined each other to obtain greater spectral efficiency. The
constant evolution of technology has led to proliferation of applications of TDD
and FDD spectrum techniques.
The 5G is the new frontier in
wireless communication. Promising to revolutionize the way communication takes
place wirelessly. 5G would be a great leap in internet speeds and coverage.
Offering never imagined internet speeds with near zero latency. The adoption of
5G is going on in full swing around the world with deployment in North America
and Europe and trials going on in Asia-Pacific and other parts of the world.
The growing adoption of 5G indicates the growth in the FDD and TDD spectrum.
Currently deployed TDD and FDD spectrums need to be upgraded and recalibrated
to accommodate the 5G wireless communication technology. This factor is majorly
driving the market. The number of connected devices and data traffic is growing
at rapid pace as businesses and consumers are turning towards tablet computers,
smartphones, connected laptops and other connected devices for accessing
business applications, internet, email, social networking sites and others. The
global chip shortage is expected to hamper the growth of the market as the chip
shortage threatens the curtailment in the production and increase in prices of
equipment and devices that enable TDD and FDD spectrum to function. Nevertheless,
new growth opportunities are in foresight as new technological innovations and
advancements are taking place.
North America is expected to
dominate the market over the forecast period. North America has been a pioneer
of the wireless telecommunication in the world. The supporting infrastructure
and massive investments in R&D of wireless telecommunication technologies
has put region as the leader on the map of the wireless technology industry.
The roll out of 5G in North America is already in advanced stage. The Verizon Company
offers 5G service in over 900 cities of USA alone. Other telecom operators are
also fast catching up in the full-scale deployment of their 5G service. Thus,
the massive adoption and coverage of 5G wireless technology in North America
has greatly catapulted the TDD and FDD spectrum market. Companies such as
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. offering FDD and TDD chipsets for LTE enabled
smartphones and tablets are based in North America. Additionally, Asia-Pacific
is expected to grow at the fastest rate owing to the rapidly growing 5G
deployment in China and other countries in Asia-Pacific. The 5G is expected to
be launched India in 2022.
