Synthetic Aperture Radar Market is predicted to reach USD 13.4 Billion at a CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period :

Market Research Future (MRFR) announces the publication of its half-cooked research report—Global Synthetic Aperture Radar Market, 2020-2030.


Synthetic aperture radar is also known as SAR, is used for creation of two-dimensional or three-dimensional reconstruction of a landscape or an object. It is generally airborne radar or space borne system that generates remote sensory image with high resolution. SAR gathers data of the flight path to stimulate aperture or large antenna electronically. SAR operates like phased array. But instead of large number of parallel antennas, synthetic aperture radar uses one antenna in time multiplex. It gathers data from different geographical locations that result into full moving platform. SAR is used in defense systems for earth resource mapping, environmental monitoring, and others.


SAR system is a radar system which collects surface images of high-resolution, using the vehicle’s motion. In the process, the microwave pulses are sent to the surface of the Earth by an antenna, which is then measured to get the image. They can be of a single-mode or also of multiple modes and make use of several frequency bands. SAR can make use of several components such as receiver, antenna, and transmitter. It is used from the ground as well as through airborne means and is highly useful for defense and commercial purposes.


SAR produces high-quality digital images of the terrains, urban regions, forests, snow-clad mountains, and oceans, that can be used to update the old databases to create new maps. Furthermore, it offers a cost-effective solution for surveying large areas with high precision and accuracy. These high-quality images enable a sophisticated analysis of data, which can be used to make digital terrain models for land cover information. Such data can be used for applications like biomass estimation, vegetation cover mapping, mineral exploration, and biological water monitoring for research purposes. SAR provides accurate data and precisely captured surface features and topographical features of the terrain, thereby resulting in high adoption by the government agencies for research purposes.


According to Market Research Future, the global synthetic aperture radar market has been segmented based on component, platform, frequency band, application, mode, and region/country.


Based on component, the synthetic aperture radar market has been segmented into receiver, transmitter, and antenna. The antenna segment dominated the market with a share in the global market over the forecasted period.


Based on platform, the market has been segmented into airborne and ground. The airborne segment is further divided into spacecraft, aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The airborne segment is expected to dominate the market, due to airborne systems' capability to scan and capture larger areas compared to ground-based synthetic aperture radar. The airborne segment is sub segmented, namely spacecraft, aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The aircraft platform segment holds the largest market share in the global market, due to the growing demand for surveillance activities in the defense sector. The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) segment is projected to exhibit the highest growth rate in the global market, owing to its rising demand in commercial as well as military operations and lower deployment costs of synthetic aperture radar systems.


Based on frequency band, the market is segmented into X Band, L Band, C Band, S Band, K, Ku, Ka Band, UHF/VHF Band and Others. The single frequency segment dominates the market with a largest share over the forecasted period. This attributed to the simple operation and ability to monitor areas over specialized wavelengths.  The single frequency synthetic aperture radar has been deployed on the airborne and ground systems as it provides a cost-effective and lightweight solution for earth observation purposes. The multi-frequency synthetic aperture radar has been witnessing steady growth due to its ability to monitor and capture images for various applications at required frequencies.


Based on application, the market has been segmented into defense, commercial, public safety, environmental monitoring, natural resource exploration and others. The defense segment is expected to dominate the market, due to the increasing number of surveillance activities, such as spying, tracking, and mapping enemy troop movements, and intelligence data gathering, which is increasing adoption of SAR for military purposes. In addition, governments have increased military spending to develop and integrate missiles with synthetic aperture radar, that will improve the accuracy of the missile.


Based on mode, the market has been segmented into multimode and single mode. The multi-mode segment dominates the global market, due to the increasing adoption of SAR operating with different modes to harness each mode's characteristics. Synthetic aperture radar operates with 3 different operating modes, namely stripmap, Scan SAR, and spotlight mode. The most fundamental mode used is stripmap, that possesses a narrow swath width. It is focused on a single area and is suitable for monitoring applications such as mining, urban sites, agriculture, illegal activities, and coastal areas. The scanSAR mode provides extensive area coverage and provides images of wider swaths, while spotlight mode is used for detecting changes in a congested environment in urban areas.


The global synthetic aperture radar market has been analyzed for five regions—North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America.
