Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION
The next billion cellular subscribers are unlikely to be accrued from among humans; they are more likely to be machines with sensors and antennas. Cellular wireless
waveforms are not the only technology that these sensors will employ. By all accounts and forecasts, the bulk of the waveform contribution is likely to come from specially
developed low-energy standards. The contribution of noncellular waveforms is likely to be in order of several multiples to that of cellular waveforms. While telecom
stakeholders are understandably upbeat about the prospects of large-scale volumes, there is one segment of radio manufacturers that is rightly basking in the spotlight—antenna makers.

Antennas are integral components of radios. Their operating principle is very simple: conversion between electrical energy and radiation. The simplicity of this principle has
relegated antennas to the periphery of the active and innovative telecommunications research domain. For close to a century after antennas were invented, antenna
technology was in the slow lane of evolution while other components such as basebands, modems, codecs and processors, among others, witnessed frantic development that led to superior performance.

Low-energy wireless is an important step in a series of changes in the industry outlook toward antennas. Designers had to sit up and take notice as mobile telephony acquired
mainstream status. Much of the demands about catering to diverse waveforms in disparate frequency bands in a limited form factor translated into heightened attention
on antenna management. Mobile devices forced the industry to concentrate on form factor and power management apart from performance. These considerations
amplified the research thrust on antennas as they had to conform to the limitations regarding form factor and power management. Wireless sensors are a progression of
this approach wherein power management and form factor attain greater criticality.

At the other end of the spectrum, mobile devices continue to gain in their ability for supporting high-speed data transfer. In this report there is mention of a company,
Skycross, that has successfully demonstrated speeds up to 600 Mbps. Increased appetite for rich media applications has set off a race in the development of wireless
standards that support such data transfer quantities. These demands cannot be met unless antennas are geared to handle the traffic. The development of smart antennas
is an answer to such increasing demands.

However, the market dynamic of antennas does not depend on technology underpinnings alone. In fact, technology clearly plays second fiddle to the health of antenna end-use applications. It is, therefore, important to highlight the role of end-use applications in determining the market prospects and technology development dynamic of antennas. Antennas are staggering in the diversity of frequencies served, material employed, forms assumed, power managed and range covered. End-use applications play a defining role in finalizing antenna specifications and pricing. The vast device-base that employs antennas has resulted in an extremely fragmented market with literally thousands of vendors. Purposeful innovation requires capital, and those with deep pockets are often in the custody of the end-device makers themselves. It is not surprising to witness original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) engaged actively in antenna research and development.

The health of the antenna market is the closest to being a microcosm for global economic health. The multiplicity of influencing factors and the disorganized nature of players involved make it challenging to render a snapshot of the antenna market. This report attempts to capture the essence of this simple but diversely employed component.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The simplicity of antennas makes them adaptable. Their adaptability has spawned a multitude of use-cases across verticals and applications. To cater to these use-cases,
antennas have had to attain a formidable diversity in terms of operating technology. Antennas are available in different shapes and sizes, and support a large range of
power operations. This diversity is unmatched among other radio components. The diversity in technologies, end-use applications and material also make antennas a
challenging market to cover and forecast. While most market studies cover specific aspects of the antenna market based on technology employed or end-use application
catered, it is important to present a unified, comprehensive picture covering all mainstream antenna technologies and markets. This report achieves this objective.

The report also highlights the role played by innovation through a comprehensive patent analysis and brings out the close correlation between OEMs employing antennas and antenna research and technology. The report quantifies the market for smart antennas—considered as the single most important innovation of the decade. It also places in context the role played by wireless sensors in shaping the antenna market.
