Radars: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Radars have witnessed significant developments over the years and today are highly advanced surveillance equipment with a wide range of applications. Defined as electronic equipment designed to identify, detect, measure, and map the speed, distance, direction, range, and altitude of both fixed and moving objects, radars continue to remain a critical civil and military technology. Though the applications of radars are widespread in the military and defense sector, demand for radar systems is now growing in non-military applications such as radar astronomy, weather surveillance, air traffic control, and archeology and agriculture, among others. Increasing demand for radars for use in aircraft anti-collision systems, anti-missile systems, outer-space surveillance systems, ocean-surveillance systems, flight-control and altimetery systems, meteorological precipitation monitoring, ground-penetrating radar geological observations, and guided-missile target-locating systems is also benefiting market growth.

Against the backdrop of external and internal security threats, territorial disputes, and modernization initiatives taken by armed forces, radars are benefiting from increasing focus of governments and militaries across the globe on surveillance and sensing. The market is also expected to benefit from the increasing dependence on sensor data from Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems used in satellites, and unmanned aircrafts. General maintenance of systems across air, land and naval domains; the introduction of new, advanced platforms; and retrofitting current platforms with new technologies are expected to fuel expenditure on military radars. Technological innovations such as improved surveillance duration and resolution, detection capabilities and early warning capabilities will spur growth in the market in the coming years.

As stated by the new market research report on Radars, Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide. Defense expenditure in the region has been increasing significantly encouraged by strong economic growth, thus benefiting spending on new radar systems and upgrades of existing radars. Latin America is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing regional market with a CAGR of 9.5% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is driven by economic development, modernization programs in the defense sector, and high military expenditure on radar systems.
