While making the research, we segmented the industry on the basis of product, type, consumption, distribution channel, and region. Based on the segmentation, we made a list of companies and conducted a detailed analysis of their financial positions, product portfolios, and growth strategies. Our next step included the study of core competencies of key players and their Industry share to anticipate the degree of competition. The bottom-up procedure was conducted to arrive at the overall size of the industry.
The global antenna Industry size is anticipated to grow in a stately manner owing to the increasing development of global antenna Industry technologically advanced satellite antenna in the aerospace and defense industry, observes m in an upcoming research, titled, “Antenna Industry Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Radio Antennas, Smart Antennas), By Technology Type (SIMO, MIMO, MISO, Others), By Application (RADAR, Satellite Communications, Cellular Communications, WiFi Systems, WiMax Systems, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029.” The growing adoption of satellite communication in aircraft and the modernization of anti-jam GPS navigation
A List of Key Manufacturers Operating in the Global Antenna Industry Research:
By type, the Industry segmented into radio antennas and smart antennas. Based on the technology type, the industry segmented into SIMO, MIMO, MISO, and others. Based on application, the industry categorized into the RADAR, satellite communications, cellular communications, WiFi systems, WiMax systems, and others. From a geographical standpoint, the industry categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
The rising focus on modernizing the aerospace industry, especially in developed regions including North America and Europe, is estimated to drive the growth of the global antenna Industry. For instance, the European nations have adopted Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR), an airspace modernization program that focuses on improving Air Traffic Management (ATM) and installing innovative solutions to eliminate inefficiencies associated with European Air Traffic Management. However, the high cost associated with the development is anticipated to hinder growth.
Robust Aerospace and Defense Industry in U.S. to Help North America Dominate
North America is set to dominate the global antenna Industry owing to the unprecedented development of the aerospace and defense industry in the U.S. For instance, according to the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), in 2019, the total sales revenue of the industry contributed a combined economic value of USD 396 billion, representing around 1.8% of total U.S. GDP. In addition, the U.S. being the leader in the design, development, and manufacturing of technologically advanced aircraft would drive the demand for antennas in the region.
The Industry in Asia Pacific is projected to capture significant growth in the upcoming years. The rising adoption of tactical communication, security, & surveillance activities in emerging nations including China and India are estimated to ensure growth in the region.
Finding Applications in the Defense Sector to Aid Key Players Gain Prominence
The global antenna Industry comprises prominent enterprises and manufacturers focusing on the industry’s development. Key players are focusing on finding new applications in the satellite technology in order to gain high share in the aerospace and defense industry. For instance, in April 2020, the U.S. Space Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) awarded L3Harris Technologies USD 500 million indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for anti-jam satellite communications mode.
- In April 2019, Viasat launched the second-generation hybrid in-flight connectivity Ku-/Ka-band antenna system for commercial wide-body aircraft. Ku-/Ka-band terminal is the most capable and flexible solution for GeoSynchronous and Non-GeoSynchronous satellite networks.
- In June 2017, Bae Systems Inc. and Department of Defense (the U.S.) were awarded a contract with a valuation of USD 12.3 million to provide 256 antenna units on single-seat F/A-18A jets.
