Military Antenna Market size is projected to be valued $XX Billion by 2025; with a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2025. Military antenna systems are mainly designed to lessen the number of antennas on a single installation. This allows the use of several radios to one antenna using linear polarized vertical and horizontal polarization signals simultaneously as well as circular polarised (LHCP or RHCP) signals that too in field selectable by the operator.
Antennas are acrucial part of military tactical communications and information warfare applications, including signals intelligence (SIGINT), military surveillance, electronic warfare (EW) and direction-finding (DF).
One of the major factors driving the growth of the global military antenna market is the rise of investment in defense sector. Excessive use of military antenna in armored vehicles, naval vessels and aircraft have boosted the expansion and growth of the global military antenna market. In spite of the driving factors, high initial costs coupled with the large spending on R&D activities are expected to hamper the growth of military antenna market. Also the economic crisis in the European countries is expected to restrict the growth of the global military antenna market.Moreover, boom in the need for better border security is expected to upsurge the demand for military antenna market. The technological mushrooming coupled with the need of modern battle kit is also expected to provide more opportunities to military antenna market during the forecast period.
Military antenna market is segmented on the basis of platform, type, frequency band, application and geography. The platform segment includes airborne, marine and ground platforms. The airborne segment is further bifurcated into aircraft antennas, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) antennas and missile antennas. The Marine segment includesshipboard antennas, submarine antennas and unmanned marine vehicle (UMV) antennas. The ground segment of the platform consists of vehicle antennas, base station antennas, manpack antennas, handheld antennas, body worn antennas and unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) antennas.
Based on the type, military antenna market is segmented into dipole antennas, monopole antennas, array antennas, loop antennas, aperture antennas and traveling wave antennas. The application segment is bifurcated into surveillance, electronic warfare, navigation, communication, satcom and telemetry. The frequency band segment is comprised of high frequency (HF), very high frequency (VHF), ultra-high frequency (UHF) ,super high frequency (SHF), extremely high frequency (EHF)
Military Antenna Market by geography is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW).
