The staggering growth in the wireless communication market, in addition to the growing base of connected mobile subscriber is driving the growth of the mobile communication antenna market. The astonishing growth in the number of subscribers per channel of the wireless communication spectrum requires improved antenna system. The limited bandwidth of the spectrum can lead to network congestion, and hence the antenna system needs to be accurately placed for better network efficiency. The mobile communication antenna has gone through several technical up gradations in terms of coding, encryption, soft handoff technologies, in addition to digital modulation, such as phase shift keying. The spur in the consumer base of the wireless mobile devices, in addition with increasing captive investment in communication technologies within the developing countries is expected to boost the growth of the communication antenna market during the forecast period.
The markets in developed countries are witnessing slow growth, owing to the mature nature of the wireless communication market. However, Africa and Middle-East are expected to witness above average growth, during the forecast period. The governments of developing countries have also started to take strict action against the mobile call drop during the communication. Recently, the government of India started penalising the telecom operators for the call drops. Similar developments are expected to increase the number of base transceiver station (BTS) system in a defined geographic region, which in turn is expected to propel the growth of the mobile communication antenna market.
From supplier prospective, the innovation in the metal and rust resistance alloys technologies, along with meta-materials is expected to increase its market penetration in remote application, such as defence and surveillance during the forecast period. Moreover, the transition of wireless communication standards from 2G to 3G, 3G to 4G and 5G will increase the demand for many new mobile communication antennas in the coming years. The product life cycle of mobile communication antenna is expected to fall in the coming years, owing to the rapidly changing antenna technologies.
The increasing competition between the telecom services providers, increasing demand of data services, smartphones proliferation, along with Long Term Evolution (LTE) are some of the other growth drivers of the mobile communication antenna market. However, the decreasing profitability of telecom service providers, along with stringent regulation on the maximum permissible wave length is hampering the growth of the market up to some extent.
Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest and fastest growing market of mobile communication antenna in 2014. The increasing demand of LTE from India and China is fuelling the growth of the market. The North American market is largely dominated by the U.S. and Canada, owing to high penetration of mobile devices including smartphones. Europe witnessed moderate growth over the past few years, due to mature nature of wireless communication market in the region. However, the expansion of 5G wireless communication standards is expected to boost the growth of the mobile communication antenna market in Europe during the forecast period. Country wise, Japan, the U.S., Canada, Russia, U.K., France, Germany, China, India, and Brazil are expected to hold majority of the market’s share during the forecast period.
Some of the competitors in the mobile communication antenna market are Kathrein, Laird Technologies PLC, Comba Telecom, Wistron NeWeb Corp., and Molex.
