Aerospace and Defence Surveillance Radars Market

The Surveillance Radars Market is projected to grow at a CAGR 6.15% rate from 2021 to 2026. Some of the factors that are expected to fuel the growth of the market are the growing need for 3D air defense radars, growing demand for drone detection radars for airports, and ongoing military modernizations globally, among others.

The digital signal processors segment of the surveillance radars market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. Radar upgrades include the switching of analog signal processors to digital signal processors. Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars require digital signal processors to handle/process all the data coming from each separate receive/transmit module in the antenna. AESA surveillance radars are used extensively in military airborne, naval, and air defense applications.

The surveillance radars market is segmented into land, airborne, Naval, and space. The growth of the airborne segment can be attributed to the increasing demand for surveillance via aircraft or Unmanned Ariel Vehicle (UAV). For example, L3Harris’ long-range surveillance radar, AN/APY-11 Multimode Radar is installed on the US Coast Guard’s Long-Range Surveillance HC-130J aircraft. It is used to intercept drug smugglers, locate stranded boats and track ice in the North Atlantic.

The surveillance radars market has been segmented into commercial, defense & space, and national security. The increasing demand for surveillance radars in the defense & space segment is expected to have a significant impact on the market for surveillance radars. This increase in demand can be attributed to the need for border surveillance, and requirement of man-portable radars for battlefield surveillance, among others.

The market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing demand for surveillance radars for border surveillance, intelligence, and reconnaissance, and modern air defense systems, among others, are expected to drive the demand in the region during the forecast period.

Key Market Players include FLIR Systems, Inc. (US), ASELSAN A/S (Turkey), Lockheed Martin Corporation (US), Raytheon Company (US), Hensoldt (Germany), Saab AB (Sweden), Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (Israel), Leonardo S.p.A (Italy), Elbit Systems Ltd. (Israel), L3Harris (US), and Thales Group (France), among others.
