One of the main elements adding to the growing demand for defense integrated antenna systems is the rapid shift from traditional warfare to advanced modern warfare systems. Due to the steady developments of network-related technologies, the typical traditional warfare systems are replaced with advanced modern warfare systems. Antennas are used in defense applications as part of retrofitting activities. For instance, in March 2022, the US Navy selected BAE System’s six OE-120B electronically steerable antenna groups for its AN/UPX-29(V) identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) interrogator system. This IFF system is used to identify aircraft and friendly ships in crowded areas.
Nations are diversifying their military expenditure from investing in defense applications to embracing more updated approaches to obtain and incorporate fundamental data related to the front line for better coordination. For instance, in 2020, the US invested ~US$ 778,397 million in military expenditure, which increased to ~US$ 800,672 million in 2021. Such investments are boosting the procurement of advanced warfare technologies across the US military forces. Moreover, in November 2021, Leidos Special Mission Aircraft announced to feature ThinAir Ka2517 phased array antenna developed by ThinKom Solutions Inc. The advanced warfare systems include the utilization of organization-driven warfare systems and electronic warfare frameworks. Advanced warfare systems work on the proficiency of such frameworks by accurately identifying and tracking objects and further developing surveillance capabilities and awareness of the situation. Thus, this change in the outlook from traditional warfare to advanced modern warfare is driving the defense integrated antenna market player’s business.
Companies in the defense integrated antenna industry are focusing on providing customer-centric solutions to boost the adoption of defense integrated antenna technologies. A 3D printed antenna was developed and tested by the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to advance radar technology and enable various new applications for the US Navy. The 3D printed antennas are lightweight, low-cost materials and take less production time compared to the production of traditional antennas that are heavy and their raw materials are expensive. The 3D-printed integrated antenna is expected to be in high demand in the coming years and expected to generate huge opportunities for market vendors during the forecst period.

While the COVID-19 pandemic-related damage to electronics production in the US is slowly recovering, aerospace and defense systems manufacturers are confronting brand-new market dynamics that are making the defense electronics supply chain as challenging as it was at the peak of the pandemic. The supply chain is being slowed considerably by competition from the commercial electronics sector, which is growing faster than the defense business. For instance, in contrast to the pandemic year of 2020, the demand for aerospace and defense electronic components is up 6%, parallelly bookings for automobiles are up by 60%, industrial demand is up by 30%, communications are up by 80%, and computing is up by 30%. Hence, it’s becoming difficult for the component suppliers to cater to the demand of all industrial players simultaneously, which is thereby hampering the production line of the defense integrated antennas. As a result, the COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the market growth.
Based on geography, the defense integrated antenna market size is primarily segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). North America is expected to account for largest defense integrated antenna market share in 2022, and it is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period. Further, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR in the global defense integrated antenna market during the forecast period.
Europe is expected to hold the second-largest share of the defense integrated antenna market in 2022, wherein Russia is expected to dominate in terms of Europe defense integrated antenna market share. Military equipment manufacturers across Europe are focusing on developing efficient military-based advanced communication components. For instance, the integrated high-performance antenna solution for single-channel direction finders was introduced by Rohde & Schwarz (one of the key players in the market) in June 2022. The new R&S ADD597 direction finding and monitoring antenna, which covers the frequency range from 20 MHz to 8.5 GHz (vertical polarization) and from 20 MHz to 7.5 GHz, is a crucial component in fixed, mobile, and transportable spectrum monitoring stations (horizontal polarization). A contract for the provision of two 7.3 million tracking telemetry antennas to be deployed at Eglin Air Force Base, a Major Range and Test Facility Base (MRTFB) of the US Air Force, was awarded to Safran Data Systems Inc. in February 2022. Germany, France, Italy, and Spain announced in March 2022 that they had signed a deal for the development of the Eurodrone program for US$ 7.22 billion. These drones establish a connection with the base using reliable, tough communication systems and are integrated with the drone. Such technological advancements by regional players and government spending on the procurement of military technologies are promoting the defense integrated antenna market growth worldwide.
Based on platform, the defense integrated antenna market size is segmented into ground, marine, and airborne. The ground segment is expected to dominate the defense integrated antenna market in 2022. The ground-based antenna is anticipated to experience significant growth over the forecast period. This growth is fueled by the demand for mobile SATCOM capabilities for voice and data transmission, the widespread use of manpack antennas in military operations, and the use of UGV antennas for ground surveillance missions.
The defense integrated antenna market players are mainly focused on the development of advanced and efficient systems.
