The mobile device market is switching rapidly to 5G; Both Murata and Qorvo assume that 5G sales should increase to 500M this year, against 250M in 2020, while Strategy Analytics' view is even more optimistic: a 150% YoY growth. This is mostly because the size of the content consumed is increasing, which requires using a faster and broader access to mobile networks, thus stimulating new mobile device sales.

As such, Qorvo is a very important link in the most smartphone manufacturer's supply chain, including Apple, Samsung, Oppo, etc. By the way, the sales both Apple and most Android smartphone manufacturers are uptrending, with a cheerful outlook for 2021.
