Market Scenario


Global 3D Radar Market is projected to register a CAGR of 19.12% during the forecast period, 2020 to 2026. 3D radar is used for weather monitoring, surveillance, and security purposes, mainly in the defense sector. 3D radar offers three-dimensional views in terms of range, bearing, and elevation. A 3D radar is used to measure all three space coordinators in the radar system.  For weather monitoring, a narrow pencil beam is used. The elevation of the antenna changes after scanning each rotation. 3D radars can be used for various applications and can be customized according to the end-use requirements, owing to their wide range of antenna arrays. 3D radars also assist in the detection and classification of the target based on their size and speed. Hence, such benefits offered by 3D radars are expected to drive the growth of the global market.
