Market Overview 

Automotive antennas have gotten excellent feedback from both end-users and manufacturers over the past few years, which gave the market the much-needed boost it needed to reach the point where companies are prepared to seize the chance to corner a portion of the global automotive market.


The development of intelligent automobile antennas improved the transmission and reception of high-frequency signals and eliminated interruptions caused by the lack of strong communication infrastructure in emerging economies.


Leading worldwide automakers like Siemens, ABB, and Fuji Electric have already begun to create cutting-edge smart automotive antennas that will meet the demands of high-frequency transmission. 


Global Automotive Antenna Market Drivers:

The emergence of Smart Antennas

Automotive antennas are used by car owners for a variety of things, including communication, navigation, entertainment, etc. In India, shark-blade antennae are offered even on section-level automobiles for the aforementioned uses. Numerous studies are being conducted simultaneously to create car antennas for improved signal transmission.


One of the hottest subjects in the automotive sector is fleet management, which enables several vehicles to communicate over a single channel. To do this, connected vehicles have created enhanced cellular channels that allow for continuous communication with better signals. Because they transmit high-frequency signals, smart automotive antennas are popular in the automotive industry. These antennae are one of the most important components of the car when it comes to fleet management. 


Such smart antennas can carry out necessary functions like navigation, live streaming, communication, etc. even in a passenger car. This is the point at which the demand for smart automotive antennas skyrocketed in the automobile sector. It gained notoriety after being integrated with IoT devices and intelligent AI aid.


Upsurge in Cellular Applications in Connected Cars a major driving element

The term "connected vehicles" refers to automobiles that have an Internet connection, are connected to IoT devices, and have artificial intelligence (AI) support. The fact that data and information can be transferred is the main advantage of such connected automobiles. It is possible for the information to be transmitted from a vehicle to infrastructure, another vehicle, the cloud, or pedestrians. With the expansion of cellular applications in contemporary vehicles, there is an increasing demand for linked auto technology.


The creation of smart antennas and the emergence of cellular apps utilised in connected cars, which present a wide range of scaling prospects for companies and private organisations, are the two main market drivers out of the entire market deliverables.


Global Automotive Antenna Market Restraints:

Lack of Infrastructure for Smart Automotive Antennas

Utilizing such high-end automobile antennas necessitates a strong communication channel with an effective technological foundation that can meet infotainment and communication needs through improved signal communication, even in remote locations. Although the general functionality of automobile antennas is hampered by the absence of such tightly integrated communication networks, this leads to transmission losses and communication failures. The car antenna market will face challenges as a result of this infrastructural gap. However, the world's top nations are building a strong communication infrastructure to offer efficient data and information transfer through automobile antennas that might meet the demands of the coming generation.


Opportunities in the Global Automotive Antenna Market:

Widescale Technological Advances in the Automotive Antenna Market create ample opportunities

Given the cutting-edge technologies that employ radars in the automotive sector and the growing popularity of autonomous driving, the automotive antenna market presents a lucrative opportunity for growth. The identification of objects and their trajectories are redefined with the use of radar in the automotive industry. Innovative solutions to enhance radar capability have been developed by numerous businesses in recent years. A few notable innovations include the use of the 4D radar, the creation of advanced antennas using meta-materials, geographic detection, etc.


Moreover, the shark fin is an optimized circuit board that can pick up DARS, GPS, and SDARS signals and is included with the antennas. The most recent generation of automobile antennas may stream services with cutting-edge technology and built-in communication channels. Glass-mounted antennas that can enhance the capabilities of streaming services and television are other notable antenna advances. Spoiler-mounted antennas incorporate microelectronic radio and antennas while maximizing the mounting area.


It is obvious that the industry is providing a wide range of prospects for vendors and manufacturers that are functioning or willing to engage in the automotive antenna market given all these technological breakthroughs in the field of car antennas.


Automotive Antenna Market Challenges:

The Emergence of 5G Technology Poses Transmission Challenges

Technology-advanced antennas have replaced conventional antennas due to the ongoing need for an integrated communication infrastructure to address signal transmission and reception issues. The vehicle antenna market is predicted to change due to the 5G wireless communication's more effective signal transmission and reception. However, 5G technology offers a broad operating frequency of 6-100 GHz, where cable transmission has a large likelihood of signal loss. 


Another problem is the constantly changing weather, which can shorten the antenna's operational lifespan and impair overall performance. Additionally, a wider frequency range increases the likelihood of radio field attenuation, which compels the signal to be received at a closer range. Reports and the Ericson study claim that 15% of the world's population began using 5G technology in 2020 and that by the end of 2023, there would be 500 million 5G subscriptions worldwide.


Segmental Analysis:

The global automotive antenna market is classified into product type and application.

Automobile antennas can be classified into three categories: fin type, rod type, and screen and film type. With a revenue of USD 312.05 million in 2021 and an anticipated increase to USD 569.84 million with a CAGR of 6.92%, screen and film-type antennas account for the lion's share of the sales of automobile antennas. The easiest-to-mount fin type, which resembles a shark fin, can receive AM/FM, 4G LTE, GPS, and satellite routes. AM/FM reception is achieved using rod-type antennae positioned on top of the vehicle. 


In both passenger and commercial cars, automotive antennas are used. In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, the passenger vehicle segment of the automobile antenna market is growing at an exceptional rate, accounting for USD 290.47 million in 2021 and projected to grow to USD 522.45 million with a CAGR of 6.74%. This is because around 53 million passenger cars were sold in the year 2020. A component that receives and sends information via signals is the automobile antenna on a passenger car. Some manufacturers of passenger cars mount these antennas on the roof of the vehicle, and other OEMs install them in the plastic spoiler because it allows for flawless signal reception.


Automotive antennas can transmit signals for geolocation, traffic updates, and data interchange in the fleet transportation system when paired with commercial cars. OEMs attach antennas on both mirrors to ensure a smooth transmission and data gathering during the fleet movement, overcoming any unintentional dangers and transmission loss.


Regional Analysis:

North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Africa make up the five geographic segments that make up the worldwide automotive antenna market. With a CAGR of 7.4% and 5.9%, respectively, South America and Asia-Pacific are the two fastest-growing regions for automobile antennas.
