Published Date : Jan 2020 | No. of Pages : 180 Pages | Category : Semiconductor and Electronic

The global radar market size is poised to hit around USD 38.79 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Increasing deployments of radars and security related issues across the globe are driving the market growth. Additionally, the market is also witnessing healthy growth in demand due to the increase in sea trade and travel activities across the globe. They have been used for understanding path patterns, altitude, and migration path. Additionally, weather radar systems are used for monitoring changes in climate patterns.

Radar-based equipment are the prominent security equipment employed in the defense sector across all nations. Primarily developed for defense and military purposes, these systems also find extensive use in air traffic, marine, and meteorological monitoring and aircraft anti-collision systems.Technological proliferation is leading to the development of lightweight radars and is positively influencing the market growth.

Radar systems used for digital signal processing help deal with security issues. Moreover, growing safety and security concerns and an increase in defense budgets are likely to propel their demand over the forecast period. Additionally, the development of new airports and terminals across the globe is also anticipated to significantly contribute to the overall growth of the market. The growing terrorist activities, inter-country conflicts, border infiltrations are considerably driving the demand for radar.

Unlike earlier, now the deployment of radars is not limited to the military sector. These systems are now increasingly being adopted in air traffic control, remote sensing, ground traffic control, marine, and meteorological monitoring, among others. The growing adoption and deployment of radars in various sectors for different applications are anticipated to support the market growth over the forecast period.

The growth of the air travel industry is encouraging market players to offer airborne radars that operate between L and Ka bands. Short range targeting radars, particularly used for helicopters and tanks, function under the millimeter band. Long range, ground-based radars use lower frequencies and are increasingly being adopted for satellite communication applications. Additionally, a radar system reveals detailed information that is essential for flight operations in dense clouds and it can also be concluded that aircraft-based systems are witnessing high-scale deployment in order to enhance flight safety.

The deployment of radar-based sensors in automobile, railways, and airplanes is increasing. The key advantages of using these sensors for detection include flexible mounting, resistance to extreme weather conditions, and long-range detection. This is leading to mass production of radars. The growth in international sea trade and movement of goods in high volumes are encouraging countries to increase their fleet size and merchant vessels to strike a balance between supply and demand. Radar can be used to track these vessels, and this is anticipated to positively influence the market growth.

On the other hand, airports with a higher number of travelers and cargo are required to consider the use of surveillance radar systems to ensure the safety of cargo and passengers. Hence, airport operators are emphasizing on enhancing runway safety systems and deploying radio detection systems across airports to enable ATC controllers to possess better control over passenger and cargo movement. Current geopolitical scenarios in developing and developed countries are offering a favorable environment for investments by manufacturers to expand their portfolio. This is expected to create new market opportunities in the near future.

Moreover, the introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in cars and electric vehicles is further stimulating the market growth. On the contrary, technical incompatibilities between the average power of a transmitter and size of an antenna tend to result in poor performance. In addition to this, higher receiver noise and poor sensitivity of radar are the other technical issues affecting the performance of radars. However, technological innovations and developments, coupled with increasing defense budgets, are expected to provide opportunities for the development of advanced detection systems to curb such technical issues.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • The growing deployments of new antennas and upgrading of the existing radar systems are the key factors driving the growth of the antenna segment

  • The installation/integration service segment is expected to reach USD 6,127.5 million by 2025 owing to the increasing deployments of radars in emerging economies of Asia Pacific

  • The demand for ground-based radars is likely to increase owing to the development of new airports and terminal expansions in various economies across the globe

  • The X-band segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the growing spending on the deployment of radars for military applications

  • The long-range radar segment growth can be attributed to the use of these radars for guiding space vehicles, tracking satellites, observing planetary equipment, and monitoring meteors

  • The growth of the air traffic control segment is being driven by the growing demand for efficient air traffic control

  • Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to witness rapid growth owing to the rapid growth of industries & sectors such as defense, space, and aviation in the region

  • The key players operating in the radar market include Lockheed Martin Corporation; CollinsAerospace; Saab AB; Honeywell International Inc.; General Dynamics Corporation; BAE Systems; Northrop Grumman Corporation; Raytheon Company; and Thales Group.
