Market Players are Focusing on Entering New Markets by Launching Technologically-Advanced and Cost-Effective Products in Radar Systems Market
Radar (radio detection and ranging) can be defined as a system using electromagnetic (EM) waves to detect and locate an objectís location in terms of range and angle. Radars transmit radio waves, which are reflected back to the source from the object, based on which the object is identified. The radar systems market is expected to grow from USD 20.29 billion in 2016 to USD 26.37 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.39% during the forecast period 2016 to 2021. The increased usage of radar systems in unmanned vehicles and homeland security is expected to drive the growth of the radar systems market in the coming years.
Key players operational in the radar systems market include Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S.), Rockwell Collins (U.S.), Saab Group (Sweden), and BAE Systems (U.K.), Rheinmetall AG (Germany), and General Dynamics (U.S.), among others. Contracts and agreements are the key strategies adopted by major players in the radar systems market.
