Radars: A Global Strategic Business Report

Global radar market is projected to surpass $5.5 billion by 2015. North America represents the largest market for radars, while Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing radars market. Radars for naval surveillance market represent the largest and the fastest growing end-use segment. Radars for Land based surveillance are projected to retain its position as the largest end-use segment through 2011, falling behind naval surveillance market in 2012.

Modernization programs in the defense sector constitute a key stimulant for growth in the market for air ISR radar in Asia-Pacific. The programs would involve replacement of old technologies with sophisticated airborne radar technology including active electronically scanned array (AESA) that offers better coverage as against mechanically scanned array and passive electronically scanned array (PESA). Developed Asia-Pacific countries have begun adopting AESA radars, with some earmarking funds for radar technology development locally.

Airborne radar makers are under immense pressure owing to lack of certainty in procurement volume for advanced front-line combat aircraft along with anticipated limited orders for airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) and fixed-wing surveillance, post 2014. Radars featuring SAR as well as inverse-SAR (ISAR) abilities have become an integral part of almost all relevant platforms. The trend is expected to continue on helicopters, large specialized platforms and fighter aircraft. Active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, a SAR capability enabled radar, is expected to offer strong growth potential in the coming years.
