According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Defense Integrated Antenna Market is accounted for $511.30 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $779.02 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. An antenna converts electronic signals to electromagnetic waves (and vice versa) with a minimum loss, and an integrated antenna consists of miniaturized antennas printed on densely populated printed circuit boards (PCB) to electrically large arrays and reflector antennas. Defense integrated antennas are more ruggedized than regular commercial antennas to withstand harsh conditions.

Market Dynamics:


Growing inclination for modern warfare systems

Emergence of modern warfare is one of the significant factors contributing to the growing demand for defense integrated antenna systems. With rapid development of computer and network technology, traditional combat systems are being replaced with new combat technologies. The new modern warfare military technologies include the use of network-centric warfare systems and electronic warfare systems. It improves the efficiency of such systems by tracking and identifying objects accurately as well as improving surveillance capabilities and situational awareness. Countries worldwide are diversifying their investment patterns, from buying conventional weapons to adopting newer ways of obtaining and integrating essential information related to the battlefield for better decision-making and coordination. Thus, the growing shift from traditional warfare systems to modern systems is anticipated to drive the growth of the market.


Design constraints and system requirements

The weight of an integrated antenna must be within the permissible limit, as the integrated antenna adds to the weight of the platform, such as aircraft, UAVs, or manpacks. It must be of the desired diameter, length, and length-to-power ratio. Manufacturers of defense integrated antennas have to adhere to military standard requirements of size, weight, efficiency, bandwidth, and cost. However, integrated antenna designers are finding it challenging to reduce the size and weight of antennas as different frequency ranges require specific antenna lengths. Incorporating new technologies as well as addressing end-user requirements is also a time-consuming process. These requirements increase the cost of the system, thus restraining the growth of the defense integrated antenna market during the forecast period.


Emergence of low-cost and miniaturized antenna

Due to large-scale manufacturing and integration of circuits into single PCBs, the cost of electronic components has reduced significantly. This has made it possible to produce integrated antennas at low-cost rates. These antennas are increasingly used in the fishing industry, small aircraft, and UAVs due to their low costs, reliability, and efficiency. Large-scale miniaturization of electronic components is also helping in the reduction of the overall size of integrated antennas, as they can be easily accommodated in small spaces, which results in low consumption of power and fuel. This leads to reduce the size of UAVs and satellites. Hence, the emergence of small-sized antennas at low costs offers lucrative growth opportunities for the defense integrated antenna market players.


High cost of infrastructure

One of the major factors hindering the market growth is the high cost incurred in the development and maintenance of earth station infrastructure. Most of the components are typically custom-fabricated or purchased from commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) vendors, which is huge cost. The several hours of work by trained and level of skilled labor poses a significant barrier to entry. Satellite communication services are used for highly sophisticated defense systems, due to which any incident of system failure is unfavorable. These services are accurate, reliable, durable, energy-efficient, and have a wide detection range.

The marine segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The marine segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period. The growing need of advanced antennas for reliable and high quality communication for underwater operations, large scale search and rescue mission, and for better communication between ships and drone/UAVs will drive defense integrated antenna market. The naval command, control, communication, computer, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) vision, called Copernicus. Navy-Marine Corps team to expand, adapt, and integrate their C4ISR capabilities to meet the demands of the new strategic environment, emerging operational concepts, and evolving information technologies.

The communication segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The communication segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to the rising need for uninterrupted long-range communication through integrated antennas. The increased bandwidth and use of high frequencies have made it possible to establish uninterrupted communication between control rooms and defense personnel over long distances. Moreover, military operations are highly dependent on communication antennas to ensure effective decision-making, which is crucial to the success of military missions.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the growing procurement by military forces due to higher defense budgets and rising interest in circular omni directional antennas. North America is one of the most important regions for the adoption and growth of new technologies owing to favorable government spending capabilities, the presence of manufacturing companies, UAV component manufacturing companies, and high purchasing power, especially in developed countries such as the US and Canada. As UAVs' demand increases across North America, the need for a broader range of antennas increases for data communications systems, payloads, command and control systems.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the improving domestic capabilities of aerospace industry, focus on strengthening combat capabilities of UAVs by integration of antenna and instability across all border areas and neighbouring countries. In addition, the market is also growing due to the government's efforts in developing countries to improve defense and the growing defense budgets in the region.
