The Europe defense drone antenna market is expected to grow from US$ 125.99 million in 2019 to US$ 223.33 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2020 to 2027. Rise in drone procurement by military forces due to higher defense budgets is expected to accelerate the Europe defense drone antenna market growth. A rapidly changing modern warfare has been urging governments of various countries across Europe to allocate higher amounts toward the respective military forces. The military budget allocation enables the military forces to procure advanced technologies and equipment from national or international manufacturers. On the same lines, soldier and military vehicle modernization practices are also on rise in many countries across Europe. The procurement of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is a major part of this modernization strategy. In addition, the defense ministries across Europe are investing substantial amounts in newer technologies, including contemporary UAVs or unmanned aircraft systems (UASs). The asymmetric warfare or modern battlefields demand enormous information to carry out the operations successfully. To gather such information related to the enemy, defense forces in the developed as well as developing countries across Europe are utilizing UAVs. Rise in orders for the drones or UAVs or UASs due to their advantages, such as operation efficiency, low risk, and more accuracy, is expected to increase the demand of drone antennas, thereby driving the Europe defense drone antenna market. Increasing interest in circular omni directional antennas is among the other factors expected to positively influence the demand for defense drone antennas in Europe.
Europe is highly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, specially the UK.The European defense contractors enjoy a significant number of contracts year-on-year from customers (military forces/governments) across the globe.

The UK, Germany, and France have the highest density of defense contractors in the region.The COVID-19 outbreak has interrupted the manufacturing process and supply chain in these countries.

Due to the massive outbreak and governmental regulations, the manufacturers are forced to operate with very limited personnel, which resulted in limited production of drones and its related components, such as antennas which has affected the Europe defense drone antenna market negatively.Several European defense contractors are heavily dependent on the US, China, and Indian defense forces.

The international supply chain disruptions coupled with lower military spending have been adversely affecting these European defense contractors’ businesses. The drone antenna market players are also among the European defense equipment manufacturers to witness market slowdown created by the COVID-19 crisis.

Based on type, the lightweight antenna segment led the Europe defense drone antenna market in 2019.Smaller and lighter weight UAVs are significantly being utilized for more complex intelligence and communication applications.

In order to increase the loitering competence and persistence of these vehicles, there is a growing requirement of lighter weight, more aerodynamic antenna.The lightweight antennas used in drones are crucial for wireless communications.

Moreover, conductively-coated composite technology allows the cost-effective manufacture of innovative antennas with reduced weight, size, and cost.Also, selective metallization through conductive coatings permits the creation of 3D antennas, circuit traces, and ground plane structures.

All these processes combine to deliver mechanically and electrically robust antennas and arrays in conformal, lightweight form factors ideal for next-generation unmanned platforms. Benefits of lightweight antenna, such as accurate communication, better persistence of UAVs, cost effectiveness, are expected to increase its demand in coming years, thereby driving the Europe defense drone antenna market.
