Middle East & Africa Airport Antenna Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Airport Type (Military Airport and Commercial Airport), Antenna Type (Dipole and Monopole), Frequency Band (High Frequency, Very High Frequency, and Ultra High Frequency), and Application (SATCOM, Surveillance, Navigation, and Others)
The airport antenna market in the MEA is segmented into South Africa, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and the Rest of the MEA. The airports are becoming less decongested, modernized, and expanded with a remarkable bunch of facilities for the passengers. The airport construction and development sector in the regions is constantly booming as the governments are investing in improving airports' cMEAity and integrating advanced equipment for passenger easing. As per the Construction Intelligence Centre (CIC), the airport-related construction projects in the region are valued at US$ 222.3 billion, and around US$92.8 billion in the execution stage. Similarly, according to the G20's Infrastructure Outlook 2019 estimation, the airport investment plans across the 50 countries alone valued around US$ 355 billion in the year 2018 to 2022; however, their actual investment requirements were more than US$ 433 billion. Furthermore, as per the IATA, approx. US$1.2 to US$ 1.5 trillion is projected to be disbursed on airport infrastructure development in the region up to 2030. Such robust initiatives by the government of MEA are the primary reason for the adoption and growth of the airport antenna market across the airport infrastructure.
Several airport construction projects are going on in the region, such as the maximum value project is Al Maktoum International Airport in the UAE, tracked by the CIC which is estimated to cost around US$D 36.0 billion, and is followed by the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia which is worth of US$ 29.2 billion. The presence of a well-known airport antenna manufacturer is intensely aiming at the development of advanced products and expanding its footprint in the region. For instance, in 2020, HENSOLDT South Africa acquired Defence and Security business Tellumatand Air Traffic Management. This strategy will assist HENSOLDT further expand its portfolio as well as its presence in Africa. Also MEA government raising financial spending for the expansion and construction of airports a major factor driving the MEA airport antenna market.
Furthermore, COVID-19 has severely affected the MEA economy. In the MEA region, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, South Africa, and the UAE are some of the countries with high number of COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths. The economic and industrial growth of these countries has been affected negatively in the past few months. The region comprises various prominent economies such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, GCC countries, and emerging African economies, which are prospective markets for airport antenna manufacturers. The MEA aviation industry has been shocked by the emergence of the COVID-19 virus across the region. Continuously falling number of passenger counts at airports until airport operations ceased by the governing authorities led the airports to observe downfall in revenue generation. The region has a number of aircraft construction and expansion projects in the pipeline which are expected to be completed by 2020 and 2021, the temporary shutdown of construction activities are leading to slower than the usual adoption rate of technologies. This is negatively impacting the airport antenna market. However, the MEA airport antenna market is expected to bolster by mid-2021 for upcoming years.
Market Overview and Dynamics
The airport antenna market in the MEA is expected to grow from US$ 160.29 million in 2019 to US$ 257.12 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2020 to 2027. The demand for military drones is accelerating due to the increasing requirement for drone technology for reconnaissance and surveillance activities. The mounting number of external and internal threats has forced the government to procure aerial imaging platforms to handle and tackle challenging situations efficiently. Several government agencies support drone manufacturers, who are focusing on the development of high-tech drones for enhanced public safety. For instance, an Elistair's Airwatch project, a small drone box for aerial surveillance, is the system that provides aerial surveillance support for firefighting, crisis management, perimeter security, and law enforcement. The mounting advancements in drone technology accelerate the high-level combat and ISR competencies that will influence the growth of MEA airport antenna market. Cobham offers an unmanned system antenna that includes various parameters such as high gain, vertically polarized Omni antennas, collinear, and installed in aerodynamic foil structures. It also offers directional antennas for communication between the towing aircraft and airborne towed target, counter-drone antennas for reducing security threats, radar cross-section enhancement, and radar detection antennas. The mounting demand of military UAV is further boosting the demand of military antennas to be installed across military airbase.
Key Market Segments
In terms of airport type, the commercial airport segment accounted for the largest share of the MEA airport antenna market in 2019. Based on antenna type, the dipole segment held a larger market share of the MEA airport antenna market in 2019.
