Microwave Generator: Introduction
- A microwave generator is a sophisticated, mostly electronic piece of equipment, designed to generate and send microwave energy
- Microwave generators are designed to provide stable and controllable microwave power, required by many heating processes and industrial applications
- Microwave signal generators offer fast switching speed and high output power without any compromise on signal purity
- Additionally, microwave generators deliver from hundreds of watts to up to hundreds of kW with significantly reduced power loss
- Microwave generators are standalone solutions or made as per requirement; it can be supplied in a complete system with power supply, magnetron head, cable assembly, and isolator
- Microwave generators are bifurcated into two cooling types: air cooled and water cooled
- Microwave generators are used for various industrial, communication, and laboratory applications
Rise in Demand for Microwave Generators for Use in Industrial Fields
- Microwave generator systems are largely used in industrial fields to deliver cost-effective and reliable systems. In a microwave generator system, microwave energy is used to heat or generate plasma and it is useful for many applications such as food processing, in industry, and for surface treatment.
- Solid-state microwave power generators (SSPG) are the next revolution in the microwave technology field. It is specifically designed for the ISM field, as it provides higher RF power and operates at continuous wave and pulse.
- Technological advancements in microwave generators results in achieving maximum signal integrity with minimum power dissipation in the smallest form factor
- Energy generated from microwave generators is used in many ways, in many sectors, and for different purposes. Most of the time it is used in thermal processes due to its ability to heat.
- Furthermore, microwave generators designed for industrial applications are rugged and dependable to withstand high temperature
- As a result of these factors, demand for microwave generators for industrial applications is growing, which is expected to drive the global microwave generator market during the forecast period.
- In terms of region, the global microwave generator market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
- North America is anticipated to dominate the global microwave generator market throughout the forecast period, as a large number of manufacturers of microwave generators operate in the region
- Additionally, many well-established players based in North America are focusing on development of new technology in industrial products which is expected to boost the microwave generator market in the region during the forecast period
- The microwave generator market in Europe and Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a substantial rate during the forecast period. On the other hand, the market in Middle East & Africa and South America is estimated to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period.
