Report Highlights

  • Overall sales in global antenna market were $10.7 billion in 2008, which came down to $10 billion in 2009 due to global recession. This is projected to reach $13.3 billion in 2014 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8%
  • BCC Research forecasts that the defense and surveillance applications sector will grow fastest resulting in an almost 5% rise in market share. This sector was worth $1.2 billion in 2009 and is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% to reach 2.1 billion by 2014.
  • Wireless communications have made antennas almost indispensable to sectors such as computing applications and residential/industrial/commercial premises and user devices. Wireless telecommunications infrastructure was worth nearly $1.9 billion in 2009 and should reach $2.2 billion by 2014, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7%.
