Printed antennas are also known as microstrip antennas. Printed antennas possess different useful beneficial properties which include conformability, mechanical durability, low production costs and compactness. Additionally, these printed antennas also have widespread applications in different end use industries which include commercial application, military, aerospace and defense applications. It also has applications in mobile radio communication devices. The printed antennas market has been segmented into by printing technology which includes flexography, gravure printing, ink-jet printing and screen printing among others. The market has been segmented into by end use industry which includes industrial equipment, automotive, aerospace and military, consumer electronics, telecommunication, healthcare among others. The market printed electronics by region has been segmented into, Asia Pacific, North America, South America, MEA (Middle East and Africa) and Europe.
Printed antennas have wide applications across telecommunication, military and defense end use industries. In telecommunication, a printed antenna generally means an antenna fabricated applying microstrip technologies on a PCB (printed circuit board) and generally used at microwave frequencies. Most of the printed antennas primarily have multiple patches in a 2D array. Printed antennas are usually connected to the receiver or transmitter or via foil microstrip transmission lines. Printed antennas have low manufacturing cost and design owing to simple two — dimensional physical geometry. They are primarily used at UHF (ultra high frequency) and higher frequencies owing to the size of the antenna are directly tied to the wavelength at the resonant frequency. Low cost production easy integration with circuit components along with convenient of fabrication are some of the prime major driving factor for the market. Printed antennae are cost effective and easy to fabricate by applying advanced printed circuit technology is also fueling the demand for printed antennas in different end use industries. These printed antennas are easily mounted on the surface of spacecrafts, aircrafts, missiles, satellites and convenient mobile devices. With the growing technological advancement, the application of printed antennas in different industries such as automotive is growing rapidly. Increasing demand for printed electronics in military, aerospace, and defense is one of the major driving factors of the market. Increasing raw material prices and cyclical nature of semiconductor industry may inhibit the growth of the printed antennas market. However, increasing application scope of printed antennas in wireless communication devices and aerospace and defense equipment is one of the major opportunities for the market.
