Military Antenna Market is Estimated to Grow at a CAGR of 6.30% from 2022 to 2028
As stated in our extensive report; the Global Military Antenna Market accounted for USD 3.1 Billion in the year 2021.
The Military Antenna Market is expanding as a result of rising technical breakthroughs, increasing demand for high-frequency military aircraft, and rising demand for contemporary fighting gear. Furthermore, many nations are currently focusing on modernization to upgrade the caliber of their military hardware and provide them with more cutting-edge technologies. For instance, the American government has upgraded its military system and is utilizing technology like tactical radar systems, mobile tactics, and cutting-edge Military Antenna. Additionally, the market is seeing prospects for expansion due to expanding security system surveillance and increasing military sector expenditure.
The Military Antenna market is segmented on component, frequency band, type, platform, application and end use. Based on components, the market is segmented into reflectors, feed horns, feed networks, low noise block converters (LNB) and others. Based on frequency band, the market is segmented into high frequency (H.F.), very high frequency (VHF), ultra-high frequency (UHF), super high frequency (SHF), and extremely high frequency (EHF). Based on type, the market is segmented as dipole antennas, monopole antennas, array antennas, loop antennas, aperture antennas and traveling wave antennas. Based on the platform, the market is segmented into ground, airborne and marine. Based on application, the market is segmented into surveillance, electronic warfare, navigation, communication, SATCOM and telemetry. Based on end use, the market is segmented into OEM and aftermarket. Region-wise, the Global Military Antenna Market has been segmented into North America, Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
The demand for communication on-the-move (COTM) solutions has increased for platforms, including trains, boats, military vehicles, and commercial vehicles, which has increased the use of electronically guided phased antennas (ESPA). These antennas can follow and maintain satellite connections even when military vehicles are in motion. Antenna terminal steering is crucial when gaining a satellite link, and an ESPA avoids mechanical motion. A contract for the development of an electronically steered antenna array to support the Air Force’s multi-band, multi-mission needs was given to Atlas Space Operations (US) in 2019 by the US Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC), in collaboration with the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit. A ground antenna with a phased electronic array was also developed by L3Harris Technologies (US) for the US Space Force in 2021. ESPA prototypes were created by Atlas Space Operations and Lockheed Martin (US). In order to demonstrate numerous simultaneous satellite interactions, the L3Harris Technologies antenna was integrated into the Space Force’s Satellite Control Network, along with antennas from Lockheed Martin and Atlas Space Operations. An outdated system of parabolic dish antennas used to fly military satellites is known as the satellite control network (SCN).
Additionally, it is projected that the development of ultra-compact communication terminals for sophisticated ground combat vehicles would present a number of market expansion opportunities. The latest series of Ka-band high-throughput satellites is compatible with ultra-compact communication terminals that offer data speeds of up to 2 Mbps for any IP-based voice, video, or data Beyond-Line-of-Sight (BLOS) applications.
Modern ground combat vehicles are progressively adopting new generation Ka-band high-throughput satellites. As a result, full-duplex satellite communication can be integrated into ultra-compact communication terminals to connect cutting-edge ground combat vehicles to ground control stations. The return connection transmits sensor data, while the forward link offers command and control capabilities. Very small aperture terminal technologies are used in these integrated terminals. In order to demonstrate its proficiency in creating ultra-compact communication terminals for cutting-edge ground terminals, GETSAT Terminal, a leading producer of micronized and integrated satellite communication systems, teamed up with Unmanned Systems Technology in 2019.
During the forecast period, the Military Antenna market in North America is anticipated to develop at the quickest rate. The North America region has seen an upsurge in terrorist acts, which has prompted the governments in the region to improve their surveillance and counterterrorism capacities. Additionally, the expansion of military commands in emerging countries and the rise in defense spending of nations like China and India have pushed the need for a Military Antenna in the North America area.
Rising technical breakthroughs, increasing demand for high-frequency military aircraft, and rising demand for contemporary fighting gear, will have a favorable impact on the overall Military Antenna market.
