Satellite Flat Panel Antenna
Flat panel antenna refers to the satellite antenna which helps to maintain the connection between the satellite and the object by steering the beam of radio waves electronically without having to change the direction of the antenna. In the initial years after the discovery of satellites, the predominant trend was to design and develop bigger satellites, mainly due to the incorporation of large subsystems, thereby making the satellites more capable and efficient.

The revolution of the space industry is mainly propelled by technological innovations in launch and satellite manufacturing technology. The advent of satellite technology has paved the way for a global communications satellite industry, which is further anticipated to help bridge the global Earth coverage gap.

As the antennas play a pivot role, companies operating in the antenna market are highly engaged in research and development initiatives and have been investing in developing new innovative technologies that are expected to enhance future satellite communication on the moving market.

Satellite Flat Panel Antenna Market Overview
The global satellite flat panel antenna market is estimated to reach $18.39 billion in 2031, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.63% during the forecast period 2021-2031. The major driving factor for the market’s robustness is the increasing requirement of satellite-based connectivity services across different applications such as communication and navigation.

Market Segmentation

Satellite Flat Panel Antenna Market by End User

The defense & government end user is expected to dominate the satellite flat panel antenna market during the forecast period. The importance of satellite internet in various applications, especially for government end users is very high. Most of the governments across the globe are signing contracts and strategic partnerships with flat panel antenna providers to provide internet connections for remote and hard-to-reach locations.

Satellite Flat Panel Antenna Market by Type
An electronically steered antenna helps to steer the beam in the required direction with no moving parts, thereby increasing the operational range. These small, lightweight, and low-profile antennas are capable of generating good coverage but are power inefficient and expensive due to design complexity than standard technology. The electronic steering is much more flexible and requires less maintenance than the mechanical steering of the antenna.

Satellite Flat Panel Antenna Market by Frequency
The Kurz-under (Ku), Kurz, and Kurz-above (Ka) designations include frequencies of 13 to 18 GHz, 18 to 27 GHz, and 27 to 40 GHz, respectively. This frequency segment is expected to have the highest market share during the forecast period due to its huge advantage of large bandwidth. This segment is able to support applications that require high transmission power. With the help of high throughput satellites (HSA), they are anticipated to have higher penetration rates compared to the other segments.

Satellite Flat Panel Antenna Market by Region
North America is expected to dominate the global satellite flat panel antenna market during the forecast period. The factor attributing to the growth of this region is the high presence of the key companies highly engaged in developing and providing flat panel antenna solutions. The continuous technology advancement by key players in the satellite industry is another factor contributing to the growth of the market.
