Military Airborne Radar Market Overview


The Military Airborne Radar Market is expected to grow from USD  4.1 billion during the historic forecast period that ended in 2019 to USD  6.0 billion by the end of the current forecast period in 2028. The global market is likely to grow and attain a global CAGR of 8.0% during the period ending in 2028. Some of the prominent market factors that are expected to fuel the growth of the airborne radars market are inclusive of the increasing focus on obtaining the required degree of precise intelligence during airborne surveillance to support the decision-making process.


COVID 19 Analysis


There has been a rapid spread of COVID-19 in main countries like the European countries, the US, and the Asian Pacific region has led to a significant drop in overall defense-related budget allocations. This led to depleted interests in military modernization programs in the global Military Airborne Radar Market. This has resulted in stagnant demand for airborne radar alongside a corresponding reduction in revenues for various applications and airborne radar providers across all markets. This is because of the late delivery of goods followed by manufacturing shutdown, and limited availability of equipment.

Market Dynamics


Drivers


Phased array antennas are known to have an advantage over parabolic antennas wherein the radar system can opt to schedule the transmission followed by the reception beams according to specific operational modes. These are inclusive of low beams for long-range detection, followed by multi-pulse beams for detection in clutter, and high beams for ballistic missile warning.


There has been a growing demand for long-range radars. These can function effectively in rough weather conditions which is one of the major driving factors for phased array airborne radar market size during the forecast period. Multiple manufacturers, as a part of the market, are offering phased array airborne radar products for both commercials as well as military applications.


Restraints


Military Airborne Radar Market trends are facing tremendous challenges that are inclusive of operating efficiency during the development of rough weather conditions. Heavy rain and other forms of precipitation are known to result in signal echoes that can help to prevent the target signals from reaching the radar receiver. Precipitation particles, as a part of the natural processes in the atmosphere also are known to cause the reflectivity phenomenon wherein the signals from the radar are aimed at a target body that reflects over these particles leading to false target signals.
