This market research study presents a detailed segmentation of the global X-band radar market by type (portable and non-portable) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The key vendors in this market are Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Reutech Radar Systems, and Saab.

Overview of the global X-band radar market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global X-band radar market to grow at a modest CAGR of close to 4% during the estimated period. A significant part of the total market growth can be attributed to the rise in sea trading, wherein, close to 10 billion tons of goods were transported. According to projections, global seaborne trade is expected to reach 24 billion tons, with China’s share of commercial vessels accounting for 25% of the global commercial fleet. To move such a volume of goods, countries will have to increase their fleets of merchant vessels. These vessels will use X-band radars to effectively navigate and avoid collision with other ships. This increase in the implementation of X-band radars in ships and harbors will lead to the growth of this market during the predicted period.

In this industry research report, the analysts have also considered the role of factors like the development and use of multi-function radar (MFR) to estimate this market’s growth potential over the forecast period. The ability of this system to detect threats posed by anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCM), support fire control requirements of standard missiles (SM2/SM-3), and horizon search/track-while-scan (HS/TWS) will lead to its increased adoption during the estimated period.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the X-band radar market

  • Portable
  • Non-portable

The non-portable segment currently dominates the global X-band radar market and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of almost 4% by 2020. With the widespread use of non-portable X-band radars for government and defense applications, the amount of investments in this market segment has increased significantly. Factors like the launch of new military communication satellites by the government in the US will also lead to the growth of this market segment during the forecast period.

Geographical segmentation of the X-band radar market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

In this market study, analysts estimate that the Americas will account for the largest market share during the forecast period and will grow at a CAGR of close to 5% by 2020. The development and launch of several new satellites through different programs like the United Launch Alliance and the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle are expected to have a positive impact on market growth during the forecast period.
