Market Overview:

The global over-the-horizon radar market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for early warning systems and tactical alert systems across the globe. Additionally, the growing demand for over-the-horizon radars from military and defense sectors is also contributing to the growth of this market. The skywave over-the-horizon radar segment is expected to hold a major share of the global over-the-horizon radar market during the forecast period. This segment is mainly driven by its ability to provide long range detection capabilities as compared with other types of over-the - horizon radars.

Global Over-the-horizon Radar Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Over-the-horizon radar is a type of radar that uses powerful radio waves to detect objects at a great distance. These radars can see far beyond the horizon, allowing them to track ships and aircraft over long distances. Over-the-horizon radars are important for maritime and air traffic control, as well as for military purposes.

Skywave Over-the-horizon Radar:

Over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) is a radio transmission system that sends and receives signals beyond the horizon. The term OTHR usually refers to long range, high power, and ultra high frequency (UHF) radars. These systems are used for detecting targets at great distances as well as tracking moving objects in real time.

Groundwave Over-the-horizon Radar:

Groundwave OTH Radar is a type of radar system that uses radio waves to bounce off the target and return to the station, instead of using satellite signals which are received and processed. The distance between the antennae is usually less than one-quarter wavelength at a right angle (90 degrees) to the signal beam. It has been in use for more than 60 years but with recent technological advancements it can detect objects that are closer to its surface than previous versions could.

Application Insights:

The early warning segment dominated the global over-the-horizon radar market in 2017. The use of OTH radars has enabled meteorologists to issue accurate warnings for impending natural disasters, such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In addition, these systems have also proved beneficial in providing advance weather alerts that help mitigate the risk of damage to infrastructure caused by extreme weather conditions.

The tactical alert application is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its ability provide real-time information on a continuous basis during military operations. Furthermore, these systems are also used for monitoring activities related with enemy troop movements and tracking down their sources thereby enhancing situational awareness among defense personnel involved in military operations across different theaters of operation globally. These factors are anticipated to drive demand for OTH radars significantly over the forecast period thus contributing toward overall market growth globally.

Regional Analysis:

North America is expected to be the key regional market over the forecast period owing to early technology adoption by military and defense organizations. The U.S., China, Japan, India, and Russia are among the prominent countries that have adopted this technology in their militaries or strategic sectors such as communication systems of the Defense Ministry of India. Additionally, North America has a high number of OTH radar providers such as Raytheon Company; Boeing; Lockheed Martin Corporation; General Dynamics Mission Systems Inc.; Harris Corporation; and Vaisala Inc., which also boosts regional growth prospects for OTH radars.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for situational awareness and border security
  • Proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and their increasing use in military and commercial applications
  • Development of advanced radar technologies that can detect smaller objects at longer distances
  • Growing demand for maritime security and safety
  • Increased investment in defense by countries around the world
