    With major advancements similar to radar technology and independent drones, border surveillance has evolved with time. Man-movable ground surveillance radars for border security have enabled many countries to secure their borders more efficiently. These surveillance radars are placed strategically on borders and play an important part in detecting possible invasions.

    Developing new-generation weapons with high-end technologies is a major concern to strategic locales and platforms, similar to military airbases and vessels. Some of these new developments include nuclear-able ballistic missiles and high-speed voyage missiles.

    Nuclear ballistic missiles could destroy various metropolises and lives. Many nations are developing advanced munitions to defeat high-end air defense systems similar to the Medium Extended Air Defense System and S-400. Countries like India, China, and Russia have developed hypersonic missiles that are delicate to block for bullet security.

    India and Russia have concertedly developed the BrahMos bullet, which is delicate to block by aged bullet defense securities. These developments have led to demand for new-generation high-speed air defense radar systems.

    COVID-19 Impact

    COVID-19 in Europe, the US & Asia Pacific has led to a significant drop in demand for military radars worldwide, with a corresponding reduction in earnings for major military radars suppliers and service providers across all requests owing to late delivery, manufacturing arrestment, limited staff at manufacturing installations, and limited availability of equipment. As per industry experts, the demand for military radars is anticipated to recover by 2023.

    Several investments/guidelines in the industry have been directed in recent years, which would boost the overall market. Some of them are: 

    One of the major players, Raytheon, is providing the U.S. Army with its next-generation, 360-degree capable radar. Moreover, the company will receive more than USD 384 million to deliver six production representative units of the advanced Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) radar under the Other Transactional Authority U.S. Army agreement.
