Market Introduction
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) have been designed and developed for military and civilian applications.The UAV manufacturing sector across MEA region is in the growth phase of its life cycle.

These vehicles are widely used for fighter combat, surveillance, aircraft carrier operations, stealth missions, and military communications applications.The drone technology is interdisciplinary with the integration of aerospace structures, telemetry, electronics, and other components.

The production of UAVs requires a substantial number of electronic components for the data recording and transmission applications, and also for avionic functions.The antennas are among the most vital electronic components of any UAV, as these antennas enable the vehicle to transmit data to and receive data from other systems, as well as the people on the ground.

The antennas which are utilized on unmanned vehicles are, in general, flexible, rugged dipole or blade antennas with the omnidirectional coverage. Thus, as UAVs’ demand increases for MEA region, the need for a broader range of antennas will also increase for data communications systems, payloads, command and control systems. The companies in MEA are focusing on modern antenna designs, which are capable of increasing unmanned vehicle fuel efficiency with increased antenna conformity, reduced antenna size, and reduced antenna weight. Factors such as progressive refinement in drone antenna and escalation in research and development to introduce newer variants of antennas are expected to drive the MEA defense drone antenna market during forecast period.
Furthermore, in case of COVID-19, MEA is highly affected specially Iran.Other major countries that are facing the economic impact of COVID-19 include Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and Kuwait.

The MEA defense drone antenna market is majorly affected by the disruption in the supply chain.Pertaining to the closure of borders of countries, the supply chain of several components and parts have been disturbed.

The demand for advanced defense equipment and components for modernizing and strengthening the UAVs has weakened over the past couple of months.This has resulted in a loss of business among the local and international defense drone antenna manufacturers.

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis will impact the defense drone antenna market growth of the MEA region for the next few quarters.

Market Overview and Dynamics
The MEA defense drone antenna market is expected to grow from US$ 44.68 million in 2019 to US$ 64.43 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.0 % from 2020 to 2027. Soaring interest in circular omni directional antennas is expected to upswing the MEA defense drone antenna market. Military forces utilize unmanned technologies for purposes such as surveillance, communications, navigation, and signal intelligence (SIGINT). The military forces are continuously seeking advanced technologies with an objective to enhance the capabilities of the unmanned vehicles. The linear polarized omni directional antennas are among the preferred antenna technologies. However, the preference for circular polarized omni directional antennas is rising at an exponential rate. The modern-day military drones need to constantly move or maneuver to gather higher volumes of information; thus, sometimes they need to adopt acrobatic flying. The circular antennas are smaller, which offer added advantage for easy maneuverability. In addition to smaller antenna size, the ability to transmit the collected data at 360° is gathering interest of defense forces as well as the defense drone manufacturers. Moreover, the military forces demand exceptional quality of captured data and images among the military forces, and these antennas facilitate the transmission of high-quality images during the drone flight at close proximity of the target. Advantages of circular omni directional antennas such as easy maneuverability, small size, high quality images, data collection at 360° view etc. is expected to increase its demand in coming years, which will drive the MEA defense drone antenna market.
