Main Surveillance Radar Market Drivers

Surveillance radar market is majorly driven by surge in the demand for lightweight radars for lightweight vehicles, advancements in border surveillance systems and growing geopolitical tensions between countries. Technological advancements in border surveillance systems, has helped many countries to handle issues such as drug trafficking and illegal immigration and nowadays, countries are increasingly using these systems to protect their borders. For instance, U.S customs and border protection agency uses autonomous surveillance towers to provide important information to their agents about criminal networks, who try to facilitate illegal cross-border activities in United States. Moreover, due to advancements in warfare tactics, countries are procuring advanced stealth aircrafts. At the same time governments in various countries are developing advanced surveillance systems to counter stealth technology, which will create growth opportunities for surveillance radar market in coming years.

Increasing terrorism threats around the world, is boosting the demand for advanced radars which can eliminate any threats arising from land and air and many companies are already developing such radars. For instance, Lockheed Martin, a leading U.S based defense manufacturer developed TPY-4 radar, which is designed for air defense surveillance, can track emerging threats. Furthermore, increasing focus of governments on strengthening border security and modernizing armed forces and rising procurement of next-generation combat aircrafts, will accelerate surveillance radar market in coming years.  However, regulatory approvals needed for exporting defense products, is restricting the market growth.  

K-, Ku and Ka-Bands segment is expected to expand at a faster CAGR.

Ka-Bands offers comparatively wider beam coverage and higher throughput than other bands and are increasing used in close-range targeting radars and vehicle speed detection systems, are some of the factors increasing its adoption in surveillance radars. In addition, major companies are already radars with Ku band, for instance, Blighter Surveillance Systems, manufacturer of electronic-scanning radars and surveillance solutions, offers its revolution 360 radars, which uses Ku band for detecting targets.

Based on Component, Signal Processors segment is estimated a hold a significant share in the market.

Signal processors helps in performing command and control operations by using signal processing techniques. Technological advancements in signal processors, has enabled companies to use high-tech processors such as Graphics Processing Units.

3D segment is projected to hold the largest market share.

3D surveillance radars are gaining traction in the market as it can easily overcome challenges faced by 2D based surveillance radars. 3D radars are increasing used in defense and air applications which requires precise coordinates of targets.

North American region is forecast to dominate the market.

Surveillance radars are gaining popularity in North American region due to on-going military modernization drives and growing demand for border surveillance systems. Asia-Pacific surveillance radar market is driven by increasing territorial issues and rise in government expenditure on land-based surveillance systems.
