Airborne Fire Control Radar Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028
The global airborne fire control radar market size reached US$ 3.0 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.33% during 2023-2028.
Airborne fire control radars (AFCRs) refer to long-range detection systems that are used for intercepting, tracking and attacking hostile air-to-air and air-to-ground agile targets. They are lightweight and compact and are integrated with the missiles, guns and rockets in fast strike aircraft and helicopters. AFCRs consist of antennas and low-pulse repetition frequency (LPRF) systems to induce the doppler frequency for the detection of changes in the range of moving targets. The radars identify the location of the target and process the data to determine the trajectory and continuous position. AFCRs also aid in navigating around fixed or moving targets and generate warnings to prevent collisions of large aircraft. As a result, these radars are widely used for detection, search, surveillance, weapon guidance and navigation operations.
Airborne Fire Control Radar Market Trends:
The rapid modernization of target detection equipment is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the widespread adoption of active electronically scanning arrays (AESA) in aircraft is providing a thrust to the market growth. With the rising incidence of cross-border disturbances and terrorist attacks, military and defense organizations are extensively utilizing AFCRs for accurate target detection and conducting critical missions. The radars offer in-flight synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of targets for real-time detection of movement or elevation in the field. In line with this, the increasing procurement of fighter jets by the government of developing economies to enhance the aerial strength of defense forces is also contributing to the growth of the market. Additionally, the increasing demand for advanced electro-optical systems in helicopters for improved combat capacities is acting as another growth factor. These systems are also integrated with advanced geolocation sensors, long-range battle damage assessment and surveillance and reconnaissance systems. Other factors, including the increasing automation in security and surveillance radar systems technology, along with significant improvements in the defense infrastructure, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
