Digital Radar Market Dynamics

Drivers: Rising demand of digital radar for enhanced weather detection and monitoring

Weather detection and monitoring demands accurate atmospheric condition data in present, including the fact of precipitation happening, the power of storms themselves, and the system for traveling of meteorological phenomena. It has been estimated that on daily basis National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (US) transmits approximately 5.4 gigabytes while uploading 15.9 gigabytes from other countries world-wide. Digital radar is significant since it offers precise and timely feedback because of having advanced sensing abilities to help in different fields.

Restraint: High development cost

The R&D and manufacturing of digital radar system is very expensive. Various stakeholder investments are needed in the value chain stages among them are R&D, manufacturing, system integration, and assembly. These radar security systems target short range, medium range, and long range. An operational frequency band is chosen according to one which is appropriate for any application range. Digital radar systems cost a lot to develop because they require high technology and specialized parts like strong signal processors, complex data interpretation algorithms and high-frequency transceivers.

Opportunity: Growth of unmanned aerial vehicles

For both military and civilian devices, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) have become a routine application. China, Russia, and Israel are developing drones and other UAV types which they use for intelligence collection, surveillance missions and reconnaissance purposes. Combat UAVs, such as the Predator and the Heron, have been developed by the US and Israel, respectively. UAVs have witnessed tremendous demand in the last few years owing to their cost-efficient and low-risk operations. Digital radars provide precise object detection, tracking, and collision avoidance capabilities. These capabilities are essential for enabling UAVs to navigate complex environments autonomously and avoid obstacles such as other aircraft, terrain, and buildings

Challenge: Electromagnetic jamming and interface issue

Jamming radar signals using electro magnetic energy is a big issue for the market. It is a form of war increasingly used when one party emits high frequency signals aimed at interfering with visual signals from radars. New jamming employs high energy signals to overrun the radar receiver thus decreasing its performance capability. Its primary goal is to reduce the efficiency of electronic radars, including false target generation and noise jamming. In July 2023, the US Air Force gave Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) USD 4.8 million contract for identifying and responding to hostile radar signals that could threaten US military airplane safety.

Digital Radar Market by Ecosystem

Market for safety segment is expected to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The rise in the use of digital radar in the automotive sector is one of the key driving factors for the digital radar market in safety application. The radar sensor sees objects on the road, and the vision sensor uses a camera to see ahead. DENSO CORPORATION (Japan), a leading mobility supplier, has unveiled a new product known as the Global Safety Package 3, which includes an improved sensing capability that enhances vehicle safety. To create a safer driving experience for all drivers, DENSO has developed an advanced safety technology that incorporates both millimeter wave radar sensors (MWR) and optical visual sensors into one device for use in cars.

Market for military & defense segment is expected to account for largest market share in the digital radar market during the forecast period.

The segment is driven by the need for enhanced threat detection and surveillance capabilities in order to guarantee national safety, supported by rising military expenditures. Technological advancements in digital radar systems, including improvements in signal processing and data analytics, further boost adoption, allowing for superior accuracy and range in monitoring airspace and detecting potential threats.

The 4D segment in the digital radar market to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The 4D segment to witness high growth rate in the digital radar market due to its superior capabilities and wide-ranging applications of the 4D radar segment. 4D radar adds time as the fourth dimension, which makes it more precise and gives a better spatial awareness when compared with traditional radar systems that only have range data, angles, and velocity

Digital radar market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The market in the Asia Pacific region is driven by high growth in the automotive sector. The increase in use of ADAS to improve vehicle safety within countries like China, and Japan among others is one of the key factors boosting the growth of the automotive sector in this region. As a result, digital radar benefits the robust automotive industry coupled with increasing attention towards safety features.

Market Definition

A digital radar is a radar system that uses digital technology to process and analyze the signals it receives. Instead of relying on analog circuits, digital radar converts the analog signals into digital data using analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). This digital data is then processed by digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms, which improve the accuracy, resolution, and reliability of the radar's measurements. Digital radars are capable of more precise detection and tracking of objects, better noise reduction, and enhanced performance in various environmental conditions compared to traditional analog radars.
