Air and Missile Defense Radar Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis By Range (Short, Medium, Long), By Platform (Airborne,Naval, Land), By Application (Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD), Conventional)and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102522 | Status : Ongoing



The air and missile defense radar (AMDR), is a next generation radar system that will provide ballistic missile defense (BMD), and air defense (AD). The systems are based on the active electronically scanned array air and missile defense 3D radar. These radars are 30 times more powerful than the present spy-1 radar. The conventional radar systems (spy-1) will get replaced by the more advanced air and missile defense radar (AMDR), also known as (AN/SPY-6) radars.

The AMDR comprises of two primary radars, the S-band radar, and the X-band radar. The S-band radar provides missile communication, tracking, volume search, and BMD perception. In the case of the X-band radar, it provides terminal illumination of targets, missile communication, horizon search, and precision tracking. The AMDR is also capable of executing electronic attacks due to the presence of active electronically scanned arrays.

Advanced radar technology is designed for the U.S. Naval forces, considering the use of the dual-band radar. This technology is capable of tracking and detecting various threats from ballistic missiles, aircraft, and supersonics missles, thus will play a vital role in battlefield operations. The dual-band radar will combine features of existing S-band & X-band radars, resulting in fewer antennas, increased response time, and the ability to adapt rapidly changing combat environment.

Key Market Driver -

• Growing missile threats and modernization programs in ballistic missile systems • Rise in the investment by government in development of AMDR systems • Upgradation of existing military systems by various countries

Key Market Restraint -

• Increased hacking issues in cyberwarfare • High cost involved in the procurement and deployment of the system

Growing missile threats combined with increased hi-tech modernization programs in ballistic missile systems are expected to be the key driving factors for the market. Due to the rise in terrorist activities and border security issues, countries across the globe are focusing on strengthening their defense capabilities by procuring advanced systems such as AMDR from the established companies. This facilitates the growth of the market during the forecast period.

However, a rise in hacking instances in cyber warfare is the major factor in restraining market growth. Cyber hacking of naval defense systems will affect market growth and cause unrecoverable damage to the infrastructure. Another factor hampering market growth is the high installation and maintenance cost of AMDR systems.

Market Segmentation:

The air and missile defense radar market is segmented on the range, platform, application, and region.

Based on range, the market is segmented into short range, medium range, and long range. The long range radars are dominating the overall market during the forecast period. The factors driving the market for long-range AMDR systems are increased demand for long-range radar systems for surveillance and navigation purposes.

Based on the platform, the market is segmented into air based, naval based, and land based. The rapid adoption of the AMDR systems in the land based platforms are supporting the growth of land based platform segment, the land based AMDR systems are mostly used in the homeland security and military applications. The S-band and X-band radars are commonly used in land-based AMDR applications.

The naval based AMDRs segment is growing at a significant rate during the forecast period. Naval based AMDRs are used for naval investigation and detection such as long-range artilleries, ballistic seven stealth missiles. These are also used for monitoring smuggling, drug trafficking, terrorism, and among others. The Raytheon Company (U.S)  have designed naval based radar technology and radar suite controller for long range detection and early warnings of threats.

Airborne AMDRs are used for air surveillance, missile defense application, early warning systems, and among others. Based on the application, the market is segmented into ballistic missile defense and conventional. The market for the BMD segment is expected to grow at a significant rate than others as the defense industries across the globe are investing in research and development to improve the radar capabilities such as speed, accuracy, and destructive powers to be used for the ballistic missiles.

Key Players Covered:

Some of the key players in the air and missile defense radar market include Lockheed Martin Corporation (the U.S.), The Raytheon Company (the U.S.), General Dynamics Corporation (the U.S.), Northrop Grumman Corporation (the U.S.), Reutech Radar Systems (South Africa), Thales Group (France), Saab AB (Sweden) and among others.

Regional Analysis:

By Region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world. North America region is a dominating market, due to an increase in demand for procurement of air and defense missile systems from the countries based in the region, such as the U.S. and Canada. The U.S. based leading manufacturers produce airborne, naval, and land-based AMDRs made specific to the requirements by the U.S. military. The U.S. government is investing in the missile defense program, and AMDR being a significant element of the missile defense system, it is attracting huge investments in the development of the AMDR technologies.

Key countries in the regions such as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East are in facing threats related to cross border attacks and missile attacks. Therefore, there is a rise in the overall demand for airborne and naval based AMDR systems in these regions. Moreover, an increase in the tensions in naval border issues, such as freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean, is rising the demand for AMDR systems. An increase in the maritime trade and business is also supporting the overall developments in the upgradation of naval capabilities from various countries present in South East Asia, and the Middle East region. A rise in the investment by the different governments for modernizing their military technologies has further fueled the market demand. Moreover, countries in the Asia Pacific region, such as Japan and China, are investing in R&D capabilities in the defense sector. China has indigenously developed military radars that can identify all types of fighter jets and bombers aircraft, which drives the market for indigenously build AMDR systems in the country.
