Market Overview

The Flat Antenna Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20%. The growth of the market can be attributed to their growing need in defense systems and proliferation in innovation Leading To Wider Application of Flat Antenna.

  • Further, the demand for connectivity in commercial aviation has been continually growing, and the operating environment has necessitated the development of phased array technology for satellite connectivity.
  • Though Flat Panel Arrays have been used limitedly due to high costs and variable performance , the introduction of Non-Geostationary Orbit satellite constellations from players like SES, SpaceX, Telesat, and others, is expected to act as a major driver of the market.
  • The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic is expected to impact the market. The growing use of these systems for 5G deployment will ensure that the market studied has a positive growwth trajectory. 5G's emergence as an independent network and the rapid expansion of 5G smartphones from flagship-only models to the mid-range segment is expected to aid market growth.

Key Market Trends

Growing Use of Unmanned Systems in Defense is a Major Driver of the Market

  • Unmanned Systems are being increasingly deployed for airborne and remote ground surveillance, border patrol, video transmission and tactical support. Hence, uninterrupted communication to the control center is extremely critical for these systems. The growing need for Unmanned Systems is expected to create demand for a wide ranges of antennas for payloads & C4I2SR missions.
  • According to a recent release by the Department of Defense, the budget requested this year for unmanned systems and associated technologies is approximately USD 9.39 billion in the FY 2019 budget. This is a significant raise over the 2018 figures and will be used for the procurement of 3,447 new air, ground, and sea drones.
  • Boeing Phantom Works, recently launched a a new flat satellite communications (SATCOM) broadband antenna to enable high-speed data delivery to military aircraft.The flat conformal antenna will be in production next year will be used in the Navy’s future unmanned mid-air refueling tanker, the MQ-25.
Flat Antenna Market

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share during the Forecast Period

  • The growing use of flat antenna systems in both commercial as well as defense applications makes this region one of the fastest growing markets of the world. Amazon for instance recently stated that it will deliver deliver packages using drones within months. The company has acuired permission from the US Federal Aviation Administration to operate its drones in the US.
  • The need for flat antennas in defense that is being met through such collaborative programmes. Kymeta will participate in Viasat's government-focused terminal modification kit program, that will ensure Kymeta’s terminals to interoperate with Viasat’s current and next-generation high-capacity satellite communications (SATCOM) networks.
  • The growing use of 5G communication in the region is also expected to aid the growth of Flat Antennas. ALCAN systems recently launched cutting edge new mmWave flat antennas that have been designed for 5G communication in urban set ups.

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape of the market remains extremely dynamic. The market has large players like Airbus and Honeywell with dedicated verticals for producing antennas and other signficant players like Cobham that are completely focussed on producing flat panel antennas. The market has been experiencing signficant new product launches and innovations. Some of the recnt developments of the market are as follows:-

  • April 2019 - Cobham Antenna Systems introduced its C-UAS (Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems) Antenna. The Counter-Drone System (or C-UAS; ) are especially important following the recent reported hazardous incursions into restricted airspace over airports by illegally flown commercial drones.
