According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Radar Market is accounted for $43.28 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $98.71 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 12.5% during the forecast period. Radio detection and ranging (RADAR) is a very sophisticated electrical device used to track an object using radio waves. A transmitter produces an electromagnetic signal, which is then transmitted into space by an antenna to form radar. It employs radio waves to measure an object's spread, speed, and angle while it is inside its radius. It can recognize, find, follow, and see objects of various things at large distances. Radar’s are used in military, law enforcement, space exploration, remote sensing, aircraft navigation, ship Navigation and air traffic controller.

According to The Hindu news report 2023, the defence ministry signed two contracts at a total cost of over ?3,700 crores for 4D multi-function phased array radar with electronic steering in both azimuth and elevation for surveillance, detection and tracking of aerial targets for the Indian Air Force (IAF).

Market Dynamics:


Increasing demand of phased array radar

Phased-array radars can map terrains with excellent precision due to their widespread usage of small radiating components in their antennas. These customised antennas can concentrate the radar's radiation into high-energy pencil beams that can be electrically guided without moving the antenna construction. Phased-array antennas have an advantage over parabolic antennas because they may arrange the transmission and reception beams in line with certain operational modes. Phased array radar's functions such as identifying, categorizing, tracking, and locating targets are propelling the market demand.


Strict regulations

Governments across regions are extremely vigilant in authorizing the trade of defense equipment and technologies, including radar. Defense equipment manufacturers need to comply with various rules and regulations pertaining to the sale of products & services laid down by the respective governments. Non-compliance with them can result in severe consequences, including the imposition of fines and penalties, termination of contracts, and civil or criminal investigation.


Rise in advanced radar systems

Digital signal processing makes use of the most advanced radar systems. They are able to decipher data from noisy environments. The distance to an object may be accurately determined by modern radar devices. Multiple inputs, digital beam forming (DBF) methods, intelligent signal coding, and multiple outputs are some of its advantages. They can also categorize groupings of trajectories. Additionally, advanced radars have advantages over conventional prime-focus reflector antenna systems. These factors collectively are accelerating market expansion.


Technical obstacles

Performance compromises may result from technological mismatches between transmitter power and antenna size. Radar's sensitivity issues and increased receiver noise might further limit the usefulness of the technology. To overcome these technological constraints, ongoing research and development activities are needed, which can be time- and money-consuming. In addition, sophisticated algorithms, ghost targets, reflections, and interference mitigation are impeding industry expansion.

Covid-19 Impact

The radar market has been profoundly affected by COVID-19. As the government imposed severe lockdowns to stop the virus's spread in the early stages of the pandemic, factories in a number of nations experienced closures. In order to combat inflation, several nations cut their defense spending, which had an impact on the market for radar systems. Lockdowns are lifted and limitations are loosened in the post-pandemic period. Radar manufacturers are permitted to resume limited production activities.

The airborne segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The airborne segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. In fighter aircraft, radar is used to track down and manage air-to-air missiles, rockets, and guns. The strategic and tactical planning of a safe flight trajectory is made possible by the airborne radar. It is a crucial instrument for pilots to evaluate the severity of convective weather that is in front of the aircraft. In the face of dangers from RF jamming and surface-to-air missiles, they detect, track, and identify targets. The segment's expansion is being boosted by its fast performance, wide field of vision, secure, and robust features.

The military applications segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The military applications segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to its numerous applications such as ground surveillance, missile control, fire control, air traffic control (ATC), moving target indication (MTI), weapons location, and vehicle search. Bombers utilise it to locate surface targets, manoeuvre across terrain, and avoid potential hazards. Radar systems send a high-frequency signal in the direction of the target. The military use this technology as a defensive and an offensive weapon, which is promoting the expansion of the segment.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The utilization of radar technology surged in this region due to the existence of various SMEs and industrial facilities. Modern naval radars with cutting-edge technologies are in high demand from developing countries like China and India. China has created military radars that are capable of seeing several kinds of bombers and fighter planes. Additionally, the need for anti-ballistic missile defence systems in the Asia-Pacific region has contributed to market expansion.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Major radar manufacturers, academic institutions, and defence contractors are based in this region. the United States controls a substantial portion of the North American radar market. This region features cutting-edge technology developments, a strong defence infrastructure, and superior defence capabilities. The region's significant defence spending and rising modernization initiatives are fostering market expansion.
