These devices offer easy circuit integration and lightweight configuration, making it suitable for military applications. Such factors are anticipated to positively impact the printed antenna market growth.
Growing applications of these devices for telecommunication operations will accelerate the printed antenna market demand. The mobile handset uses semiconductor-based diodes or indicators that are utilized as antennas for the reception of network signals. Additionally, these antennas conform to planar and non-planar surfaces, making them suitable to be integrated into mobile devices. Microstrip antennas have evolved from academic to commercial usage with applications in a wide variety of microwave systems. The use of microstrip antennas in Direct Broadcast Televisions (DBT), mobile satellite communications, Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), Intelligence Vehicle Highway System (IVHS), and Personal Communication Systems (PCS) is increasing, driving the printed antenna market.
The adoption of 5G technology is being witnessed in several regions and the technology has gained a considerable share in the printed antenna market. Telecommunication operators are focusing on improving their network infrastructure to 5G communications by implementing modern antenna solutions, specifically developed for enhancing network connectivity and thereby driving the market. For instance, Airgain Inc., an antenna solution provider, has launched a group of 5G radio antennas for assisting clients effectively, including support for new 5G-NR groups and conveying performance at least 20 times faster than the speed of 4G. Achieving download speeds as high as 20 gigabits-per-second with specific undertakings such as precision medicine, connected vehicles, virtual & expanded reality, and a wide cluster of IoT applications will be witnessed in the coming years. In addition, the antennas are capable of carrying multiple frequency bands such as dual and triple. With reduced spending plans, the demand for lightweight technology is increasing, propelling the printed antenna market.
RFID utilizes electromagnetic waves to automatically identify items, animals, and individuals. The use of printed antennas with the technology has helped to lower manufacturing expenses, increasing their usage. The dipole antenna design is with twisted closures and is printed by utilizing conductive silver ink on hydrophobic paper as a substrate. The process to deposit a pasty ink on a paper is known as screen printing strategy, wherein the ink is constrained through an engineered cross section screen onto a substrate. The dipole antennas are being majorly used for military & defense applications, augmenting the printed antenna market share.
In the healthcare sector, antennas are being majorly used in health monitoring applications such as breast cancer and heart attack. Moreover, in the pharmaceutical field, advancements in printing procedures for the creation of drug delivery systems are being witnessed. Such innovations may offer advantages and adaptability in assembling, manufacturing, and packaging of customized drugs, thereby accelerating the printed antenna market demand. This technology is majorly used in the medical field for treating malignant tumors. Microstrip antennas are being used for hyperthermia treatment of superficial tumors. They have several advantages over RF/MW radiative applicators, boosting the market.
Growing investments in telecommunication and healthcare sectors in North America are driving the printed antenna market growth. The overall investments of health IT companies in the U.S. reached USD 968.3 million in 2018. Some of the major Midwest healthcare companies that have high investments in modern technologies include Bright Health, Tempus Inc., and Bind, among others. With the increase in investments on these modern healthcare technologies, the demand for printed antennas is being witnessed in several medical devices such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), wireless capsule endoscopy and biomedical telemetry. Moreover, the increasing adoption of connected healthcare technologies in the U.S. is also a major factor that will accelerate the printed antenna market size.
Key players in the printed antenna market include Optomec Inc., TIL-TEK Antenna Inc., Gamma NU Inc., Galtronics Corporation, Cobham Plc, Texas Instruments Incorporated, GSI Technologies, TE Connectivity, Optisys Inc., Cobham Plc, and Mars Antennas and RF Systems Ltd. The players in the market are engaged in developing advanced technologies that will enhance and improve the network communications & connectivity in different applications. However, some companies are shifting toward the manufacturing of virtual antenna solutions, which is a major factor impacting the growth of the market players. For instance, in June 2019, Fractus Antennas announced the usage of its virtual antenna technology for 5GBarcelona initiative that will transform the city into a metropolitan 5G testing laboratory. It will also allow Barcelona city to turn into a European innovation hub in the field of 5G communication.
