Market Growth & Trends
The global synthetic aperture radar market size is anticipated to reach USD 4.98 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2020 to 2027, according to a study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) uses a remote sensing technique that generates high-resolution images and can be used for earth observation and surveillance operations. The synthetic aperture of SAR operates at various frequencies and modes, which enable it to take pictures through cloud covers, inclement weathers, and during the day and night. Synthetic aperture radar is compact and light in weight compared to the conventional radars, which is expected to increase the adoption of these devices for space satellite missions and thereby drive the market.
Over the years, SAR has been widely used for military operations, whereas it has also gained prominence in the commercial sector recently. The advanced synthetic aperture technology makes it possible to detect and capture natural disasters, infrastructure damages, archeological artifacts, snow mapping, biomass and vegetation, and oil spillages in oceans, among others. The growing need for tracking and detecting movement, mapping troops, and gathering intelligence data is expected to increase the adoption of these systems in the military operations. Furthermore, synthetic aperture radars can be integrated with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV's) and rising usage of UAV for tactical and surveillance purposes is expected to bolster the demand for SAR systems in the market.
The data retrieved from synthetic aperture radar involves using several pre-processing steps and requires a separate software from the service provider to process the data. It may include steps like de-bursting, radiometric calibration, terrain correction, applying the orbit file, and speckle filtering depending on the type of analysis. This tedious process to work with the SAR data is expected to limit market growth. However, the processed images and retrieved data provide a detailed and clear picture of the mapped objects, which is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.
