This paper represents a unique study of different microstrip array antenna designs for various wireless communications and their applications. The objective is to achieve better gain, return loss, bandwidth and other parameters of antenna, in order to use them in wireless communication applications. So compared to single microstrip antenna, we prefer to go for the array designs which help to improve the gain, return loss, bandwidth and other parameters that are important for various wireless communications. The design techniques discussed and make antenna array elements to operate at various wireless communication bands such as L, S, C, X and Ka, which include various wireless communication applications. Nowadays, miniaturization is so important for microstrip antenna because of their small volume, low cost and low profile become very attractive. This paper will make readers easy to understand different kinds of array antenna used in wireless communication applications.
