Market Insights–Defense Drone Antenna Market

Mounting Interest in Circular Omni-Directional Antennas

Military forces utilize unmanned technologies for purposes such as surveillance, communications, navigation, and signal intelligence (SIGINT). The military forces are continuously seeking advanced technologies with an objective to enhance the capabilities of the unmanned vehicles. The linear polarized omnidirectional antennas are among the preferred antenna technologies. However, the preference for circular polarized omnidirectional antennas is rising at an exponential rate. The modern-day military drones need to constantly move or maneuver to gather higher volumes of information; thus, sometimes they need to adopt acrobatic flying. The circular antennas are smaller, which offer added advantage for easy maneuverability. In addition to smaller antenna size, the ability to transmit the collected data at 360° is gathering interest of defense forces as well as the defense drone manufacturers. Moreover, the military forces demand exceptional quality of captured data and images among the military forces, and these antennas facilitate the transmission of high-quality images during the drone flight at close proximity of the target. Such benefits of circular omnidirectional antennas are contributing to the defense drone antenna market growth.

Technology Segment Insights

Based on technology, the linear polarized omnidirectional antenna segment dominated the global defense drone antenna market in 2019. The linear antennas project a wave along a singular plane, horizontal or vertical. This kind of polarization facilitates more energy to be transmitted, as the wave simply moves in one direction.

Type Segment Insights

Based on type, the lightweight antenna segment dominated the global defense drone antenna market in 2019. Smaller and lighter weight UAVs are significantly being utilized for more complex intelligence and communications applications. In order to increase the loitering competence and persistence of these vehicles, there is a growing requirement of lighter weight, more aerodynamic antenna.

Frequency Segment Insights

Based on frequency, the ultra-high frequency segment dominated the global defense drone antenna market in 2019. The ultra-high frequency (UHF) antennas operate with the frequency range of above 300Mhz. In the current scenario, UHF is the most commonly utilized frequency band.

Application Segment Insights

Based on industry, the communication segment dominated the global defense drone antenna market in 2019. The UAV manufacturers are continuously emphasizing, integrating state of the art communication system with an objective to facilitate the military personnel at the Base Station to communicate with the UAV. In order to integrate the best communication systems, the need for communication antenna is of supreme significance. Attributing to the fact that the importance of communication antenna on a UAV, the demand for the antenna is anticipated to remain high throughout the forecast period.

Frequently Asked Questions

North America is expected to be the largest revenue generator in the defense drone antenna market compared to the other regions. The US Department of Defense (DoD) is anticipated to increase its UAV spending in the next few years to prepare the military for high-end fights against advanced rivals. There was an inclusion of the spending of US$ 3.7 billion on new unmanned systems technology in the president defense budget request for FY 2020. According to the dean of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies, the US military has enormous opportunities to use UAVs more commonly in various applications, including cargo aircraft and combat aircraft. The growing demand for drones for military application in North America is expected to drive the growth of defense drone antenna market.
A rapidly changing modern warfare has been urging governments of various countries to allocate higher amounts toward the respective military forces. The military budget allocation enables the military forces to procure advanced technologies and equipment from national or international manufacturers. On the same lines, solider and military vehicle modernization practices are also on rise in many countries. The procurement of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is a major part of this modernization strategy. In addition, the defense ministries worldwide are investing substantial amounts in newer technologies, including contemporary UAVs or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Surge in orders for the drones or UAVs or UASs from the defense forces signifies a substantial demand for drone antennas, which is driving the defense drone antenna market.
The linear polarized omni directional antenna segment led the technology segment. The linear antennas project a wave along a singular plane, horizontal or vertical. This kind of polarization facilitates more energy to be transmitted, as the wave simply moves in one direction. However, penetration of obstacles is reduced pertaining to the difficulty a linear wave faces in navigating around an object that is present in its plane of propagation. On the other hand, omnidirectional antennas are best suitable for the radiation of a signal in all possible directions, but over a comparatively shorter range. The radiation pattern can be clearly captured in the omnidirectional antennas as being particularly well dispersed in all the directions covering the antenna apart from directly below and above the antenna. These antennas are mainly utilized with the video transmitter, as the antennas are well adapted to overcome unexpected changes in the direction and attitude of an aircraft’s flight.
