Asian Press Group banner 728x90The global 3D radar market is projected to achieve a market value of US$54.76 billion, experiencing a remarkable double-digit Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.7% by the conclusion of the forecast period from 2022 to 2032, according to a report by Fact.MR. The evolution of defence sectors worldwide, coupled with technological advancements aimed at enhancing vigilance and preparedness, is significantly influencing the trajectory of the 3D radar market.

In contrast to the widespread impact of COVID-19 on various industries, the 3D radar sector displayed resilience. In 2021, the industry generated a revenue of US$14.7 billion, sustaining a positive growth rate of 13% compared to the previous year. The industry’s ability to thrive during the pandemic is likely attributed to the escalating global conflicts that prompted increased demand for 3D radar technology.

The surge in conflicts across different regions is a key driver for the growing demand for 3D radar technology. Additionally, the adoption of electronic and network-centric warfare is fuelling the uptake of 3D radar technology. The positive influence of deploying 3D radar for air defence is further contributing to the overall market growth.

The evolution of modern warfare, emphasising electronic and network-centric tactics, has driven the transition from traditional combat systems to advanced technologies. Global conflicts and geopolitical uncertainties underscore the importance of radar systems in safeguarding territories. While conventional 2D radar provides horizontal angles, the adoption of 3D radar is rising due to its ability to offer elevation information. This advancement proves crucial in air traffic management, mitigating collision risks amidst adverse weather. Airports globally are increasingly integrating 3D radar systems, anticipating heightened market revenue. In air defence, 3D radar’s ability to provide comprehensive data enhances interception strategies, making it the preferred choice over traditional radar systems.
