Growing demand for electronically steered phased array flat panel antennas

An electronically Steerable Antenna is an electronically controlled array of antenna elements that can be electronically steered to point in different directions without moving the antenna itself. These antennas show great performance efficiency in a very thin, low-profile package and are very rugged and completely weatherproof for extremely long life in harsh environments. Thus, there has been a rising demand for these antennas in several critical environments. Additionally, increased demand for communication on the move solutions for platforms such as commercial vehicles, military vehicles, trains, and boats has led to the greater use of electronically steered phased flat panel antennas. These antennas can track and maintain satellite links even when platforms, such as military vehicles, trains, or boats, are in motion. Hybrid beam steering is used in these phased array antennas for COTM, electronically for elevation, and mechanically for azimuth. An antenna terminal steering plays a major role in acquiring a satellite link. ESPA eliminates mechanical motion.

Within the report, the flat panel antenna market is segmented into type, frequency, application, and geography. By type, the flat panel antenna market is segmented into electronically steered and mechanically steered. Based on frequency, the flat panel antenna market is segmented into C, X, Ku, K, and Ka.

Geographically, the flat panel antenna market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of The World.

Growing innovative antenna systems and increase in the usage of low-cost antennas

The increasing demand for innovative and compact antenna systems, growing investments in space exploration & satellite launches, and the increasing adoption of low-cost antennas in detecting different commercial & military frequencies drive global market growth. In 2020, the United States was the leading spender, with the Government Space Program spending around US$ 47 billion.

 The low earth orbit (LEO) satellites for frequency detection in space communication has severely boosted the global market demand. Other factors propelling the growth of the flat panel antenna market include the increasing fleet of connected and autonomous vehicles used for various frequencies in the commercial and military sectors that require customized flat panel antennas and the rising demand for Ku and Ka-band satellites. According to CARSURANCE, in 2020, there were 35.02 Mn autonomous vehicles worldwide. Additionally, the number showed a rise of approximately 3.62 Mn driverless cars since 2019, nearly around 31.4 Mn.

Applications in electric and hybrid electric vehicles will create ample growth opportunities for market growth.

The ultra-compact and low-profile flat panel satellite antennas are developed to operate with the new generation of Ka-band high-throughput satellites for any IP-based voice, video, or data Beyond-Line-of-Sight (BLoS) applications. Additionally, these antennas provide full-duplex satellite communication, linking advanced ground combat vehicles to ground control stations. Furthermore, the forward link provides command and control capabilities, while the return link transfers sensor data. These integrated terminals comprise quite a small aperture terminal technology. For instance, ThinKom solutions’ ThinPack flat-panel antennas combine the easy, fast setup of ultra-compact terminals with the power and performance of their bulkier counterparts so users can reap the most out of satellite broadband globally.
