Global X-Band Radar Market 2016-2020

About X-Band Radar

The X-band radar is a self-propelled, floating, mobile active electronically scanned array early-warning radar station that can operate in extreme conditions with high winds and heavy seas. It was developed as part of the Missile Defense Agency's Ballistic Missile Defense System.

X-band radar frequency is used in defense, government, and commercial applications for air traffic control, weather monitoring, defense tracking, naval vessel traffic control, and vehicle speed detection for law enforcement.

The different types of radars used in these applications are as follows — single-polarization, continuous wave, pulsed, dual-polarization, phased array, and synthetic aperture radars.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global X-band radar market to grow at a CAGR of 3.97% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global X-Band Radar Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global X-Band Radar Market: Israel Aerospace Industries, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Reutech Radar Systems, and Saab.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Furuno Electric, Kelvin Hughes, Selex ES, Prosensing, and Terma.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Development of multi-function radar is the key trend in the market. Multi-function radar (MFR) is a three-face X-band active phased-array radar incorporated with volume search radar to form a dual-band radar suite. It is designed and developed to detect threats posed by low observable anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCM) and to support fire control requirements for standard missiles (SM-2/SM-3) and evolved sea sparrow missiles (ESSM).”

According to the report, growing demand in military market is one of the major drives in the market. In military applications, these satellites play an important role in countering threats and protecting against nuclear events, laser threats, and jamming attacks. In addition, the spectrum benefits the defense applications through flexible connectivity and military grade encryption on the telecommand system.

Further, the report states that the growing demand for X-band radar for commercial purposes and an increase in the number of manufacturers have made the spectrum congested resulting in inaccurate results. Therefore, government agencies are limiting the use of the spectrum by commercial users. Such rigid government regulations pose a significant impact on the growth of the X-band radar market.
