Market Growth Factors
Implementation of smart antennas to enhance mobile communication infrastructure
The seamless data, voice, and control services provided by 4G and 5G technologies are supported by smart antennas’ better wireless network capacity and coverage range. These antennas were developed as a viable technique to boost mobile communication efficiency. Utilizing the beamforming approach, smart antennas lower interference levels and increase the network operator’s capacity. By expanding the system’s user base and coverage, smart antennas enable the delivery of services of the highest caliber. As a result, more mobile communication providers are using smart antennas. Therefore, the market will rise in the coming years with these developments.
Worldwide expansion of smart city initiatives
Intelligent security solutions are becoming increasingly necessary due to the Internet of Things and cutting-edge city projects. Furthermore, effective energy-management systems are highly regarded to guarantee accurate metering and minimize waste. In order to facilitate effective administration and monitoring, lower carbon emissions, and improve route planning and optimization, smart city transportation infrastructure supply is also being promoted. Many nations are currently making significant investments in technology to update their outdated infrastructure. For instance, the Indian government spent significant money transforming 100 existing cities into smart cities. These elements would thus create new growth opportunities for network connectivity in smart cities. As a result, this would hasten the market expansion for these antennas in the next years.
Market Restraining Factors
Rising alertness of adverse health effects of RF radiation
For the wireless connections to be transmitted, the base station’s network is crucial. These antennas are deployed to send and receive radio frequency signals from the linked devices. These radio waves are crucial to establish a wireless link for communication. Users’ worries about the harmful effects of RF radiation from antennas, however, are mounting. The effects of base station RF radiation have been the subject of numerous medical studies during the past year. Epidemiological studies, animal studies, human volunteer studies, and in-vitro studies are just a few examples of medical research that are conducted. Therefore, more people and manufacturers are opposing the adoption of 5G, because of which the market share will likely suffer.
Offering Outlook
Based on offering, the market is characterized into hardware and services. The services segment procured a considerable growth rate in the market in 2022. The rising demand for installation services is expected to propel the services category to impressive growth throughout the projection period. There is an increasing demand for expert services to ensure that these antennas are installed and integrated properly as network operators attempt to improve their infrastructure and increase their coverage. This covers services, including site surveys, testing, antenna installation, and optimization. For the best performance and dependability of base station antennas, managed service providers provide troubleshooting, proactive monitoring, and network administration.
Hardware Outlook
On the basis of hardware, the market is classified into omni-directional antenna, sector antenna, multibeam & dipole antenna, small cell, and others. The omni-directional antenna segment acquired the largest revenue share in the market in 2022. Due to its capacity for greater coverage and superior signal strength, this market segment currently has a dominant position. In wireless access points, cellular base stations, and other communication applications, the omni-directional antenna is frequently employed.
Technology Outlook
By technology, the market is divided into 3G, 4G/LTE, and 5G. The 4G/LTE segment garnered the maximum revenue share in the market in 2022. The ever-increasing need for higher frequencies and larger bandwidths to handle the burgeoning data traffic is a major reason for the segment’s growth. Base station antennas that support 4G and LTE are essential in order to provide users with dependable and quick internet connectivity.
Application Outlook
On the basis of application, the market is classified into mobile communication, intelligent transport, industrial IoT, smart city, military & defense, and others. The military and defense segment garnered a considerable growth rate in the market in 2022.
