Global Commercial Vehicle Antenna Market 2017-2021
About Commercial Vehicle Antenna
Antennas are integrated into wireless communication systems. Antennas are increasingly adopted in CVs. The rising preference for driving pleasure and safety is pushing the adoption of wireless connectivity through antennas among light commercial vehicles (LCVs) and heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs). The high adoption of LCVs in the US and China is fueling the commercial vehicle antenna market in such countries.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial vehicle antenna market to grow at a CAGR of 8.45% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global commercial vehicle antenna market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Vehicle Antenna Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial vehicle antenna market: Continental, Delphi Automotive, HARADA INDUSTRY, Hirschmann Car Communication, Kathrein Automotive, LAIRD, and Yokowo.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Amphenol Corporation., ANTONICS – ICP, FIAMM Energy Technology, KYMETA CORPORATION, SCHAFFNER HOLDING, Taoglas, u-blox, and Winegard.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is development of multiband disk puck antennas for CVs. Most antennas used in CVs do not offer a stable coverage pattern. This leads to poor antenna connectivity. As a result, there is loss of business-critical data. This creates the need for stable antenna coverage, particularly for CVs that require real-time fleet tracking. LAIRD, a prominent vendor in the antenna market, developed multiband disk puck antennas in 2016.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is rise of embedded cellular connectivity in vehicles. Vehicle users are governed by the increasing need to stay connected to the external world. Vehicle connectivity enhances navigation capabilities and safety quotient of drivers and the passengers. The embedded cellular connectivity is considered the most reliable method to ensure connectivity in vehicles. The growing adoption of this technology in the CV segment is considered a crucial driver for the global commercial vehicle antenna market. Embedded cellular connectivity is a key feature of modern passenger cars. The CV segment, too, is expected to witness the adoption of this technology during the forecast period. This is expected to be a crucial driver for the adoption of antennas in CVs on a global basis.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is inability of antennas to pick up signals from every direction. The requirement of antennas in CVs is increasing. Premium trucks are expected to be equipped with about 30 antennas. Antennas control the functioning of AM and FM technologies. They also assist in the functioning of other technologies in a CV. In general, antennas are bound to pick signals from a single direction. The inefficiency of antennas to pick signals in correspondence to changes in the vehicle's moving direction is a major challenge that restricts the use of antennas in CVs. The use of antenna array, which incorporates multiple antennas in circularity, helps in dealing with the issue of directionality.
