According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Aircraft Antenna Market is accounted for $0.61 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $1.18 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period. Aircraft antennas are used by aircraft to direct using radio frequencies and communicate with traffic control or other planes. There are numerous sizes and types of aircraft antennas designed for different frequencies. Communication and navigation is the main application of aircraft antennas. Other antennas may also have their own set of specifications for aircraft avionics. Since the location of the receiving station is not fixed, the signal generated by the antenna must be omnidirectional. Aircraft antennas are usually mounted on the top or bottom of the plane. In recent years, there has been a significant impression of the adoption of aircraft antennas in military drones to optimally carry out search and rescue operations.
Growing Airspace Modernization Programs
An airspace innovation program is the main to the demand for innovative aircraft antennas in new aircraft. These aircraft antennas are also expected to be connected to existing fleets as part of retrofit activities. For example, the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR), an airspace modernization program adopted by European nations, focuses on improving air traffic management (ATM) and installing innovative solutions to eliminate inefficiencies such as undesired route extensions of up to 50 km and unnecessary delays of around 10 minutes per flight in European air traffic. Advanced aircraft antennas will be installed in aircraft to lessen such incompetence. Such modernization programs will lead to an increased demand for aircraft antennas, fuelling the growth of the market in the near future.
The high cost of expansion of new technologies for it is the major restraint faced by leading players operating in the market. This has slowed down the overall growth of the market across the globe. Aircraft antennas and their sub-components, being high precision and quality products that meet various government safety standards, use expensive technologies, thereby increasing the price of the final product.
Increasing Demand for Military UAVs
Several countries are experiencing high investments in the development of top-quality drones and military unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for aiding in various battlefield applications. Moreover, the number of research and development activities is rising at a rapid rate. For receiving and transmitting communication signals, UAVs require a specific amount of electronic components. It consists of transponder antennas. UAV antennas also serve many applications, namely, reconnaissance, surveillance, and signal intelligence. These factors would propel the aircraft antenna market growth in the coming years.
Aircraft Backlogs Threat the Market Growth
Major threat affecting the aircraft antennas growth market includes aircraft order cancellation and aircraft backlog orders. In 2018, the Boeing Company delivered 806 aircraft across the globe. In 2019, it delivered only 380 aircraft. The decline in the aircraft deliveries is majorly occurring due to the cancellation of orders of the Boeing 737 MAX jet. Such incidence affected the overall market demand for aircraft antenna systems in the year 2019.
Terminal Wireless Local Area Network (TW-LAN) segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
A Terminal Wireless Local Area Network purposes with the support of a small compliant transceiver that supports multiple high-speed wireless protocols. This multi-protocol support enables the operation of the GateSync system at airports across the world. The system enables airlines to wirelessly load and offload content and data while the aircraft is on the ground.
The Microstrip Antenna segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The microstrip antenna segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR rate for the aircraft antenna market during the forecast period. Microstrip antennas are popular owing to their low manufacturing cost and ease of fabrication and integration with circuit components. These antennas are lightweight and can be easily mounted on the surface of aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, missiles, and even on handheld mobile devices.
Region with highest share:
The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the highest market share, owing to the rising aviation passenger traffic and the consequent claim for new commercial aircraft. The growing demand for next-generation advanced aircraft antennas from emerging economies is also estimated to bolster the growth of the market. Countries such as China, Brazil, and India have enormous growth potential for the market, as governments of these countries have paced up their defense expenditure to boost their civil & commercial, and military aircraft fleet. Advancements in antenna systems to increase onboard connectivity services for passengers so that it enhances their experience further fuel the aircraft antenna market. Increased investments in the military sector in the Asia Pacific prompted the development and launch of new generation advanced military aircraft.
Region with highest CAGR:
North America is projected to have the highest CAGR. This growth is accredited to the increasing number of investments in developing technologically advanced aircraft antennas. The increasing use of UHF-enabled military UAVs for border surveillance activities in countries such as the U.S. is also expected to boost the market growth in North America.
