Radar is an abbreviation for radio detection and ranging systems. A military radar system is a detecting device that employs radio waves to determine an object's angle, range, and velocity. Radars are employed by defense forces for a variety of purposes, including monitoring, finding targets, and tracking their movements (aircraft, missiles, UAVs, naval vessels, and military land vehicles), directing other weapons, and countering incoming threats. Military radars can identify and classify targets such as crawling infantry, groups of walking men and low-flying helicopters. In addition, military radars are utilized for navigation and weather radars.

  • Radar and air defense systems Increasing procurement

  • Modern surveillance radars with low false alarm rates have aided countries dealing with border disputes, drug trafficking, and illegal immigration in the identification and prevention of these issues.


  • Incorporating these devices into national defense networks comes at a high cost.

  • These systems are extremely expensive to launch and maintain.


  • New-generation air and missile defense systems are required.

  • India, China, and Russia have developed hypersonic missiles that are difficult to intercept with missile defense systems.


  • Radar jamming techniques that are new

  • These new radar-jamming techniques dramatically raise the R&D costs of constructing radar systems.


Due to the status of COVID-19, research and development of military radar companies around the world have been hampered by announced closures and government restrictions on public gatherings.

As governments spend money shifting to economic recovery as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, industries may be slowing down the number of military radar systems. The production rate of companies that make military drones is adversely affected by the nature of COVID-19.

The cancellation of several international exercises and the reduction of military activity worldwide due to COVID-19, have harmed the market for military radars as demand for the remaining components is low.

After COVID-19, the military radars market could see significant growth as several countries have already ordered or planned to purchase their military drones.

The growing security concern coupled with the rising defense budget is contributing to strengthening industry growth prospects. The rise of technology has had a positive impact on the industry and leads to the development of lightweight radars. Strategic alliances between industrial players and increased focus on border protection activities create greater demand for military radar systems. The modern operations of military equipment and heritage systems around the world are creating new ways of expanding markets. The industry is expected to see an increase in demand due to increased terrorist activity, inter-state conflicts, border crossings, and more frequent border crossings. Military radar facilitates accurate detection, tracking, surveillance, ground mapping, and warning against hidden aircraft and weapons, thus providing security.

However, the market is very vulnerable to the current economic situation. The effects of the recession have had a profound effect on military spending around the world, reducing the potential for industrial growth. European countries, such as Russia, Germany, and the UK, have seen declining defense budgets due to major economic conditions and financial crises. In addition, the high cost of military radar and the development of space-based radar requires significant investment in the production and operation of R&D. The market is divided into three categories based on the platform: airborne, terrestrial, and naval radar. Due to cross-border conflicts, increased terrorism, and geopolitical issues among various countries, the land radar sector is expected to dominate the market in 2023. The airborne segment is expected to develop at the fastest CAGR between 2023 and 2030. The increase is linked to rising demand for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) radar and increased fighter aircraft procurement from Asian countries. The naval segment will develop significantly since it is used to identify and track the position of vessels, which aids in the safe navigation of a ship from one location to another. The market is separated into four ranges: long, medium, short, and extremely short. In 2023, the short-range category is expected to dominate the market. The company's expansion is due to its diverse security, border surveillance, and monitoring applications.

The long-range radar segment is expected to expand the most due to increased demand for long-range radars for naval surveillance and marine operations. Because of the increased demand for air surveillance and tracking radars, the medium-range segment is expected to grow significantly. Because of the increasing employment of these radars in important operations to protect land forces against mortars, air threats, and artillery, the very short-range segment will experience moderate growth.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation
