The Worldwide Radar Systems Industry is Expected to Reach $41 Billion by 2026

DUBLIN, March 16, 2022 / PRNewswire / – The “Radar Systems Market by Application, Platform (Air, Marine, Unmanned, Land, Space), Frequency Band, Type, Component, Range, Dimension, Technology, & Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America) – Forecast to 2026 “ report has been added to’s offering.

The radar systems market is estimated to be USD 32.5 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 41.0 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2021 to 2026.

Increasing demand for advanced weather monitoring radar to drive the market for radar systems during the forecast period

Weather monitoring radar, also known as weather surveillance radar (WSR) and Doppler weather radar, are developed to detect precipitation (rain, snow, and hail, among others) and calculate its direction of motion in order to estimate weather conditions in a particular region at a given time. These radar are used across commercial, scientific, and military applications, with many companies actively developing new technologies for use in weather monitoring. For instance, In June 2020, Honeywell (US) developed the IntuVue RDR-7000 Weather Radar System, which can be used in military and defense applications. The IntuVue RDR-7000 can also be used on urban mobility platforms such as air taxis and airborne emergency vehicles.

Development of Active Electronically Scanned Array Radar

Active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar technology is a module containing a new generation of transceiver modules. Software-defined radio (SDR) is used for radio communication because of its high data rates. The use of AESA technology is growing rapidly because of its enhanced reliability and affordability and is expected to replace conventional radar systems in the near future. This has allowed countries such as the US, Norway, the Netherlands, Indiaand Israelamong others, to incorporate AESA into legacy / old systems on land, sea, and airborne platforms.

Due to its resistance to electronic jamming, low interception, high reliability, and multi-mode capability, countries around the world are adding AESA radar into their military aircraft and vessels and manufacturers around the world are working to meet demand. Incorporating AESA radar into aircraft / sea / or ground platforms will remain relevant as electronic warfare becomes more important and without AESA, modern conventional militaries are obsolete.

Europe: The largest contributing region in the radar systems market.

Europe is the largest market for radar systems in terms of demand as well as the presence of key radar systems manufacturers. The region accounted for a total share of 33.8% of the global Radar systems market in 2020. Europe has many countries that invest a good amount of money in defense infrastructure. This results in a high requirement of radar systems in the Europe.
