Drivers & Restraints-
Rising Demand for Military UAVs to Drive Growth
Numerous countries are experiencing high investments in the development of top-quality drones and military unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for aiding in various battlefield applications. Besides, 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. However, the number of aircraft delivery is declining. It may hamper growth.
VHF & UHF Segment to Lead Backed by Rising Usage of Wireless Communication Technology
In terms of frequency band, the market is segregated into X band, C band, Ka/Ku/K band, very high frequency (VHF) & ultra-high frequency (UHF) band, and others. Out of these, the VHF and UHF segment is expected to showcase the dominance in the market owing to the rising utilization of in-flight wireless communication technology. The demand for UHF bands would upsurge because of their ability to provide in-flight radio communications and television broadcasting. The X band segment generated 17% aircraft antenna market share in 2018 on account of the its increasing usage during in-flight radar communication.
High Demand for Commercial UAVs to Favor Growth in Asia Pacific
Geographically, the market is divided into North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. Amongst these, North America procured USD 201.1 million aircraft antenna market revenue in 2018. It would dominate because of the increasing investments by companies for developing novel aircraft antenna. Apart from this, rising border surveillance activities is surging the usage of UHF enabled military UAVs in the U.S. It would contribute to the market growth in this region.
Asia Pacific, on other hand, is anticipated to grow considerably by exhibiting the highest CAGR during the forecast period because of the increasing demand for commercial UAVs in countries, such as India and China. In Europe, the rising number of aircraft deliveries would propel market growth. In France, there is high utilization of reconfigurable liquid antennas in many aircraft. It would also boost market growth in this region.
