Hi Praveen02,

I would start considering the below points:

1) Matching network that feeds the antenna. With a wrong matching network, the efficiency of the antenna might be destroyed.
2) Diagram pattern. Check that the with both antennas is similar, otherwise, your application might lose performance.

If this is a product that has been FCC/CE certified to operate with the PCB trace antenna, the certification will not be valid with the chip antenna. Resubmission to the appropriate agency(ies) will be required prior to shipping the new configuration.
