Synthetic Aperture Radar Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Published By: Brisk Insights | Published On: Mar 15, 2022




Synthetic aperture radar offers one of the most accurate methods for producing highly detailed scans of targets from space and air. By using radar antenna moving over the targeted region, synthetic aperture radar offers fine resolution compared to conventional beam scanning systems. Synthetic aperture radar is typically used onboard moving platforms such as military aircraft or spacecraft. Increasing investment in surveillance and other defense is the major factor for synthetic aperture radar market growth.


In defense, synthetic aperture radar enables to detect missile sites as well as to map territory of the opponent to plan further operations. Synthetic aperture radar attached with military aircraft offers easy collection of crucial information to resolve situational problems such as sudden changes in climate, disaster management, resource monitoring and few others. On the other hand, escalating demand for multipurpose satellite imagery, earth scanning application, need for change in conventional disaster detection methods is constantly increasing. These factors are showing great potential for synthetic aperture radar market.


Seawater motion signatures imaging is one of the most vital and traditional applications of synthetic aperture radar; whereas, digital elevation model is among the emerging applications. In 2010, data from synthetic aperture radar of satellite named Cassini was used to produce digital model of hydrocarbon lake on Titan. Furthermore, synthetic aperture radar is finding new applications including shipping & transportation, agriculture, natural resources and others. With advancement in radar technology, geosynchronous synthetic aperture radar have been developed that is used to inspect area under rapidly moving format. Application such as atmospheric phase measurement, ground motions & geo hazards monitoring and others are going to gain traction due to geosynchronous SAR. Such vital applications of this advancement makes it important for the future development of synthetic aperture radar market.


North America is the most prominent geographic region for synthetic aperture radar market. Heavy expenditure over defense and surveillance systems along with prolonged penetration of synthetic aperture radar are major factors responsible for market growth. Nevertheless, growing scientific research operations and defense budget in Asia Pacific region are showing significant potential for synthetic aperture radar market.
