Demand growing at a CAGR of over 4 percent through 2025

Boston, MA - November 28, 2015 - The global squeeze on military budgets is translating into an emphasis on improving capabilities at the system level. Coupled with a relatively limited number of big budget platform programs, this will translate to spending on radar systems continuing to increase. The Strategy Analytics Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) service series of forecasts cover the global military radar market in terms of expenditure as well as system shipments across the land, air, sea and space domains. Strategy Analytics forecasts global spending on radar will reach $19.39 billion in 2025, representing a CAGR of 4.1% over the 2015 to 2025 period.

“Technology trends around AESA (active electronically scanned array) architecture, gallium nitride- (GaN) based solid-state components and digital conversion and processing technologies will also add impetus to radar spending globally through both upgrades on existing systems as well as new radar procurements,” predicts Asif Anwar, ADS Director at Strategy Analytics. “The associated market for semiconductors and other components will grow to over $3 billion with GaN becoming the primary enabling technology as it grows at a CAGR of 28.0%.
