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% during 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
