Military Radar Market: Overview

Radar systems are crucial in the detection of bombs and landmines that are not visible to the naked eye. One of the key products witnessing high demand in the global military radar marketplace is lightweight radars. High demand for these radars can be attributable to immense potential for their use in the domestic defense sector. Additionally, the global military radar market is currently being driven by increase in spending by countries to strengthen their border and domestic defense forces. Several incidences of civil unrest and terrorism worldwide are prompting several countries to amplify their defensive arrays, of which military radars form an irreplaceable component. However, wind turbines being installed in growing numbers across the world pose a key hindrance to military radars, as the movement of turbine blades can degrade radar reception significantly.

The global military radar market is expected to reach value of ~US$ 10 Bn by the end of 2027, expanding at a CAGR of above 3% from 2019 to 2027, in terms of revenue.
