Increase in Military Expenditure is Propelling the Deployment of Radars and Boosting the Radar System Market Growth.

The increase in military expenditure across various countries has been a major factor boosting the adoption of radar systems by different armed forces across the world. The rise in procurement of advanced warfare technologies such as ISR and combat solutions are pushing the customers to adopt radar system technologies worldwide. For instance, the rise in number of unmanned systems (US) deployment is one of the major factors raising concerns among different armed forces to boost their countermeasure and detection capabilities. The radar systems help to identify the unauthorized objects and sends the signal to command operational centers that is being used for taking further actions for such incidents. Furthermore, increasing procurement of military aircraft specially for intelligence, reconnaissance, surveillance (ISR) applications and combat applications is another major factor generating the demand for radar systems deployment among different armed forces.

Military end use segment is expected to account for a larger share in 2021, This is owing to the rising military expenditure across different countries that is supporting the procurement of radar systems among the armed forces worldwide. Moreover, the large number of applications and increasing number of deployable platforms across military sector is another major factor supporting the growth of radar systems market for military segment.

The commercial segment is mainly driven by airport and marine authorities. The rising number of airport constructions is likely to generate new demand for market vendors during the forecast period. For instance, in 2021, the Civil Aviation Authority of China announced their plans to have new 250 civil airports by 2035. Similarly, in August 2022, the Indian government has also set a target to build 220 new airports by 2025. Such instances are likely to generate the demand for radar systems specifically for commercial applications during the forecast period.

Deployment of Unmanned Systems to Provide Future Opportunities for Market Vendors During the Forecast Period.

The growing deployment of unmanned systems across several defense forces is one of the major concerns that has become major concern among the defense forces to detect and track the unmanned objects across their territorial areas. The rising military spending on in the procurement of unmanned systems across different countries is propelling the adoption of advanced radar technologies with compact, affordable, and high precision capabilities. Many unmanned ground vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and unmanned surface vehicles rely on solid state radar technology and new methods of fabrication and programming. The rising penetration of stealth and jamming technologies (including unmanned systems) as countermeasure applications is one of the major factors that is generating more demand for radar systems across several armed forces. Such instances are likely to generate huge demand for market vendors during the forecast period.

Vendors Focusing on Capturing Contracts from Major Defense Forces is Another Major Factor Accelerating the Market Growth.

Several vendors are focusing on working closely with their long term and retained customers to understand their requirements and provide them a reliable solution for their needs. Also, some of the vendors are majorly focusing on capturing the strong bid opportunities from major armed forces worldwide which further accelerating the radar systems market growth. For instance, in April 2022, the US Army awarded a contract worth US$ 3.27 billion for the full-rate production of AN/TPQ-53 radar systems. Moreover, some of the vendors are also focusing on capturing long term contracts to retain their position in the market. For instance, in April 2022, Raytheon Technologies Corporation also won a contract worth US$ 3.16 billion to provide radars for as many as 31 ships over the next five years. Similarly, in July 2022, BAE Systems Plc had signed a five-year contract from Brazilian Government to deploy its ARTISAN Radar on the Brazilian Navy’s flagship, the multipurpose aircraft carrier NAM Atlântico.  Such instances are pushing the competition factor across the market. Many companies across the radar system market are pushing their capabilities to grab major opportunities from major market customers across the world.
