    Market Insights

    The military antenna market was estimated at US$ 15.6 Billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% during 2022-2028 to reach US$ 26.5 Billion in 2028.

    Military antennas deliver extremely accurate tracking, ground mapping, surveillance, weapons, warning against aircrafts, etc. thereby enhancing the security. Growing transformation of the military equipment joined with the boost in legacy system around the world is expected to fuel the demand of military antenna market. The major driving factors that contribute to the market growth are rise in defense expenditure, increasing border disputes, technological advancements, and increasing adoption of advanced warfare techniques. Apart from this, high initial costs and economic instability in developed regions are the major restraints to the Military Antenna market worldwide. increasing demand of surveillance system, and growth in the requirement for better border security are one of the opportunity factor which will positively impact the overall market of the Military Antenna market. Apart from this, high military standard is the major restraints to the Military Antenna market worldwide.

    Increasing military budgets across the globe have significantly contributed to the growth of military antenna in the market. Growing military expenditure in developed and developing nations, such as Germany, Europe, the US, Japan, China, and India. A expansion in defense and military spending is estimated to boost the adoption of advanced technologies in the military sector. Also, the rising concern for strengthening the defense and military sector is expected to facilitate the deployment of antennas in military communication in combat zone. In U.S. region, in the Caribbean and Central America, changes in military expenditure are mainly driven by Mexico due to its use of military force against drug cartels, which registered for 77 per cent of the sub region’s spending.

    Government investments and funding to uplift military and defense capabilities are responsible for adopting advanced military and defense equipment that utilizes embedded systems. This contributes to the growth of the global military antenna system market during the forecast period. The investment is mainly focused at development and manufacturing of advanced and innovative weapons and products at reasonable prices for the defense and military sectors of the United States. According to the United States Department of Defense (DOD), the government of the United States spends more than 50% of its total budget annually on the military and defense sectors. Increasing demand of military antenna system is also depend on innovative technological advancements which strengthening the overall growth of the military antenna market worldwide. For instance, Cobham Aerospace Communications has introduced a Wide Band High Frequency (HF) antenna capable of transmitting data at a rate 10 times higher than traditional HF antennas. This Wide Band High Frequency (HF) antenna allows for users to share images and videos, with transmissions able to cross thousands of miles. Additionally, Syntonics LLC has planned to provide First Shipment of FORAX Antenna Remoting Equipment to Australia. This system is majorly provided to military customer to support multiple military HF (High Frequency) radios.

    Several investments in the defense industry have been directed at military antenna in recent years, which would boost the overall market. Some of them are:

    • As per Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in April 2022, global military expenditure rose from 0.7% in 2021, which is expected to reach $2,113 billion. The 5 largest defense spenders in 2021 were the United States, the United Kingdom, India, China, and Russia, accounting for around 62% of total expenditure.

    According to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), from April 2020 – June 2021, the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) equity flow in the Indian Defense sector was valued at $10.15 million. 

    Segment Analysis

    Based on the platform, the market is bifurcated into Airborne, Marine and Ground. Marine will remain the biggest market for military antenna in the forecast period. Maritime VSAT includes the usage of satellite communication through with a very small-aperture terminal (VSAT) on a moving ship. Since a ship moves, the antenna requires to be alleviated with orientation to the sphere and True north. Thus, require antenna to constantly point at the satellite it utilizes to receive and transmit signals. The marine antenna is generally deemed to be most essential element in a shipborne station for maritime satellite communications (MARSAT).

    Based on the frequency band, the market is segmented into High Frequency (HF), Very High Frequency (VHF), Ultra-High Frequency (UHF), Super High Frequency (SHF) and Extremely High Frequency (EHF). Super High Frequency (SHF) account for the largest market share in 2021, increasing the demand for military antenna in warfare. The increasing demand for consistent military satellite communication is mainly boosting growth within the market segment. The little wavelength of this band enables transmission of narrow beams by space antennas such as horn antennas and parabolic dish antennas.  

    In terms of regions, North America will likely maintain its supremacy in the military antenna market throughout the forecast period. The high military investment by the United States government is expected to facilitate the adoption of military antenna in the defense sector of the US, which in turn is expected to contribute to the growth of the military antenna market in the North America region over the forecast period.

    Concurrently, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the global military antenna market during the forecast period.  The key factors responsible for the swift growth are the continuous up-gradation in the military and defense sector by upgrading warfare platform technologies. Major countries, including China, India, and Japan are investing a huge amount in the up-gradation and advancement of the military sector by introducing advanced communication devices and related platforms in defense.

    Key Players

    There is stiff competition in the military antenna market. The growth of the companies is directly dependent on the industry conditions and government support. These companies differentiate their military robot offerings based on their quality and penetration in the target and emerging markets. Also, some major mergers and acquisitions in the industry recently have significantly influenced the competitive dynamics. For example:

    • In March 2021, Airbus has entered into a agreement by Eutelsat to develop EUTELSAT 36D armed with 70 Ku-band transponders, a steerable antenna and around 5 downlink beams. EUTELSAT 36D offers performance optimization and flexibility to provide service in Europe, Russia, and Africa.
    • In October 2021, L3Harris Technologies was selected by NASA to perform a second, advanced study to substantially enhance the timeliness and accuracy of the US weather. This involves avionics parts and antenna production.
    • In October 2021, L3Harris Technologies has entered into an agreement with the US Air Force Research Laboratory worth of $5.7 million to incorporate a low-Earth orbit terminal (antenna) into rotary-wing aircraft to develop and improve aerial communications ability.
