The point-to-point antenna market is estimated to be valued at USD 3.6 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5.0 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.9%. This estimation factors in the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the market. The major driving factors are the simplicity of installation as compared with other antennas and the growing penetration of the Internet. The increasing number of M2M connections among various industry verticals is also expected to drive the point-to-point antenna market growth during the forecast period. The persistent rise in the demand for high-speed internet and large network coverage is another key factor that is expected to propel the growth of the market.
Based on type, the flat panel antenna segment is expected to witness the highest growth in the coming years owing to the demand for Communication on the Move (COTM). As these antennas are flat, thin, and lightweight, they are often hung on walls or ceilings where they remain visually inconspicuous and blend easily into the background. These antennas are mostly used for covering single-floor small offices, small stores, and other indoor locations where access points cannot be placed centrally.
Based on polarization, the dual-polarized antenna segment is expected to have a larger share in the point-to-point antenna market. A dual-polarized antenna can respond to both horizontally and vertically polarized radio waves simultaneously. The use of both polarizations increases the traffic handling capacity of the system.

Based on frequency range, the 10.0 GHz to 29.9 GHz segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. This growth is attributed to the anticipated deployment of 5G cellular network infrastructure. These are super-high-frequency (SHF) antennas with major applications in test equipment, industrial imaging, consumer and industrial VSAT, and cellular 5G.
Based on application, the telecommunication segment held the largest market size in 2019. The telecommunications segment will continue to lead the point-to-point antenna market as a result of the extensive and robust installation of antennas due to the increase in demand for high-speed data access.
The COVID-19 pandemic will have a significant impact on the telecommunication sector. Owing to the increase in the number of countries imposing restrictions on movement, people are spending more time at home for work and leisure, using vast amounts of data. Telecom companies are focused on increasing network resiliency and particularly its impact on planned investments in 5G. For instance, in March 2020, 3GPP, the global association developing the world’s 5G technology, announced a three-month delay in the timeline for the completion of 5G specifications: Releases 16 and 17. The stage 3 of Release 16 is now scheduled for June 2020. Also, the further work on Release 17 is shifted by three months, so the freezing of stage 3 will take place in September 2021.
The point-to-point antenna market in APAC is foreseen to grow at a significant rate owing to the increasing number of 5G infrastructure development initiatives in the region. The rising demand for telecommunication infrastructure has also created a plethora of opportunities for the point-to-point antenna market in the APAC region.
In APAC, investments look promising as the majority of countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea have been more successful in containing the spread of COVID-19 than the US and European countries. China is easing the restrictions imposed on the operations of factories and the movement of workers. Major telecommunication equipment providers in the region, including ZTE (China) and Huawei Technologies (China), have signed more than 95 5G commercial deals with leading global telecom operators.
In the coming years, growing demand from smart cities is expected to fuel the point-to-point antenna market. Increasing deployment of Wi-Fi by businesses is also transforming the point-to-point antenna market.
