Increasing Adoption of Smart Antennas to Promote Growth

The growing demand for efficient wireless communication systems for operational efficiency by the defense forces globally is propelling the demand for advanced antennas. These smart antennas aid in automatic optimizing of radiation and reception patterns with effective signal processing algorithms. Besides, they provide optimum quality of wireless communication that helps to minimize errors and efficiently manage incoming signals. It also allows customization of data signals that provides better field monitoring capabilities for military troops during surveillance operations and battlefields. Therefore, the growing adoption of smart antennas is expected to boost the global military antenna market growth during the forecast period.  

Merger and Acquisition by Major Companies to Intensify Industry Competition

The global market comprises small, medium, and large companies striving to maintain their presence by adopting several organic and inorganic strategies. The established players are focusing on acquiring other small companies to expand their product portfolio that will bode well for the growth of the market in the forthcoming years. Additionally, several companies are signing lucrative contracts with either the government or private companies to develop advanced military equipment to maintain their presence in the fiercely competitive landscape.

Further Report Findings:

  • North America is expected to remain dominant and hold the largest global military antenna market share during the forecast period. This dominance is attributable to the rising defense budget in countries such as the U.S. and the increasing focus on the development of advanced defense products in the region. For instance, in September 2020, Isotropic Systems and SES Government Solutions received a contract from the U.S. Army. The company informs that the contract aims to develop a multi-beam terminal over SES's O3b Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) constellation. This is expected to lead to providing next-generation connectivity across the battlefield. North America stood at USD 1.22 billion in 2020.

  • The market in Europe is expected to gain momentum backed by the increasing focus on the development of advanced military antennas to strengthen the military might between 2021 and 2028.

  • Based on the platform, the ground segment held a market share of about 44.86% in 2020 and is likely to experience significant growth during the foreseeable future. This is ascribable to factors such as the increasing demand for the replacement of existing radar systems with advanced military antenna systems worldwide.
