Global Military Radar Systems Market Overview


Military Radar Systems Market Size is Anticipate to reach USD 27.3 Billion by 2030 and registering a CAGR of 7.20% By 2022-2030

A military radar system is a detection system that determines the objects' velocity, angle, or range by utilizing radio waves. In military settings, radars play an important role in assisting in vehicles, detecting missiles and aircraft. In the global market, the surveillance and airborne early warning radar provides enhanced surveillance capabilities by detecting vehicles, ships, and aircraft at long ranges. In addition, the land segment is driving the growth of the global market because of the increasing adoption of military unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Apart from that, the long-range radar segment is projected to lead the Military Radar Systems Market because of the increasing threat from ballistic missiles in various parts of the world. Moreover, the army personnel are experiencing the surveillance capabilities and enhanced target with the high-definition images of the targets with the help of 4D military radar systems. For instance, the air & missile defense segment demand is growing because of the high adoption of air & missile defense radars in different land-based and naval-based anti-ballistic missile defense systems.


The demand for X band frequency radars is increasing during the forecast period because of the increasing usage of synthetic aperture radars in airborne systems, land, and naval systems. Additionally, the digital signal processors are projected to propel the Market demand during the analysis timeframe. They assist without the loss of quality while storing digital signals on magnetic tapes. Moreover, the Market is boosting market growth because the US Navy is increasing the adoption of radar to enhance its surveillance capabilities.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis


When almost all marketing sectors were affected by loss due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Military Radar Systems Market demand did not negatively impact. This is because the US DoD continues to accelerate payments and purchase products regularly to help large and small businesses.


However, the lack of workforce and production level, delay in programs, and increase in cost have negatively affected the global market growth. 


Key market drivers

The worldwide Military Radar Systems Market is driving its growth due to the increasing regional instability with the growing procurement of radar and air defense systems. In addition, the replacement of obsolete systems is another growth driving factor in the global market. 


Recently, the Indian Armed forces have been focusing on the Aerostat radar system that can rise to an altitude of 4,600 m or 15,000 feet. Thus, it is driving the global market growth in the further coming years. 


Market Opportunities

The increasing developments in solid-state electronics are fueling the market share and bringing significant opportunities for the key players in the forecast period.


Further, the technological advancements in military radar systems are developing lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers and key players of the Military Radar Systems Market.


Market Restraints

Although the Market has lucrative growth opportunities, the high cost of development can hamper the growth of the worldwide market.


Moreover, the size might get hindered due to the new radar jamming techniques present in the global market. 


Market challenges

The worldwide Market might experience major challenges due to the data processing algorithms development that can differentiate the moving targets from the background objects.


In addition, another big challenge to the military radar systems is the introduction of stealth technology.
