A synthetic aperture radar can be defined as a radar system that uses the motion of the vehicle (such as a spacecraft) to simulate a system having a much larger antenna area and is used to obtain high-resolution images of a surface. The synthetic aperture radar market is projected to grow from USD 2.41 Billion in 2017 to USD 4.21 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 11.75% from 2017 to 2022. The Europe synthetic aperture radar market is growing at a significant pace due to the increase in the defense expenditure of various countries in the region. Moreover, the growth of the Asia Pacific synthetic aperture radar market can be attributed to the rise in defense spending of various countries of the region, which has further led to an increase in the procurement of defense equipment such as synthetic aperture radars for surveillance activities.
