Aircraft Antennas Market to Exhibit 7.49% CAGR by 2026; Rising Adoption of MAGNA Technology to Boost Growth

March 26, 2020 | Aerospace & Defense

The global aircraft antennas market size is projected to reach USD 626.6 million by 2026. It would gain impetus from the rising utilization of a technologically advanced anti-jam GPS navigation antenna named MAGNA. It was developed jointly by BAE Systems and Mayflower Communications. It is mainly used during battlefield operations in military aircraft. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™ in a recent study, titled, “Aircraft Antennas Market Size, Share and Industry Analysis By Platform (Fixed-Wing, Rotary-Wing), By Frequency Band (VHF & UHF Band, Ka/Ku/K Band, HF Band, X Band, and C Band Others), By End-User (OEM, Aftermarket), By Application (Communication, Navigation & Surveillance) and Regional Forecast 2019 to 2026.” The study further states that the market stood at USD 472.4 million in 2018. But, it would exhibit a CAGR of 7.49% during the forecast period between 2019 to 2026.

Boeing Launches Flat Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Broadband Antenna

Boeing Phantom Works, a research and development organization under the Boeing Company, unveiled the latest flat satellite communications (SATCOM) broadband antenna. It is specially designed to bring in high-speed data to the military aircraft. The multi-channel terminal, as well as the low-profile electronically steered flat conformal antenna would be taken under production in 2020. The launch consumer is likely to be MQ-25, the Navy’s unmanned mid-air refueling tanker. Boeing is presently developing this tanker under a contract worth USD 805 million. According to the company officials, another potential consumer is likely to be a fixed-wing aircraft named V-22 Osprey by Marine Corps.
