    What is the electronically scanned arrays market?

    Electronically scanned array systems are made up of a number of antennas that may be moved independently of one another to project the radio beam that results in various directions. Radars that use electronically scanned array systems provide several benefits, such as better dependability and higher resistance to electronic jamming.

    Market Dynamics

    With further study, the advantages of electronically scanned arrays are becoming clearer, causing armed forces worldwide to employ them more frequently. Increased use of electronically scanned array systems in aircraft results from concerted efforts made by many countries worldwide to develop a smart and technologically advanced army rather than a large but technologically disadvantaged one. Leading military spenders like the U.S. are paving the way toward automating and replacing the manual, human-driven army with one that is propelled by technology.

    Major military worldwide is investing in plans to upgrade their defence gear, including fighter jets, naval ships, equipment for homeland security, and air defence systems. This upgrade is implemented to enhance the functionality of all that equipment. One of the most crucial elements in improving the performance of that military equipment is upgrading the surveillance, tracking, and navigation systems deployed. An electronically scanned array is the most cutting-edge antenna technology that enhances this military equipment's tracking, surveillance, and navigation capabilities. Due to the enormous demand for their installation, their market is anticipated to grow throughout the forecast period.

    Covid-19 Impact

    For several sectors, COVID-19 has created a number of difficulties. That holds true for the aerospace and defence sectors as well. Several nations have cut their defence budgets as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. Most research initiatives are halted as a result. Additionally, there has been a decrease in the export of electronically scanned arrays to a number of nations in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. All of these possibilities have an impact on how electronically scanned arrays grow.

    Trend Period


    Forecast Period



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

    • Global geopolitical instability has caused several nations to raise their defence spending. Additionally, there are more active conflicts now than there were five years ago. Russia-Ukraine war, India-Pakistan disagreement, US-China dispute, China-India dispute, and China-Taiwan dispute are a few current hostilities. Electronic scanned array-based radars are chosen to block missile defence system-fired guided missiles from the Navy and the Air Force. In the near future, it is anticipated that the increase in these conflicts worldwide will increase demand for and incentive for advancements in radar systems through electronically scanned arrays.
    • The newest radar technology, 4D electronically scanned array radar, offers capabilities including multi-functional surveillance and target acquisition, as well as recognised tactical images and weapon assignment. The radar employs several digitally generated beams on a solid-state gallium nitride active electronically scanned array sensor. The electronically scanned array has the ability to identify, track, and categorise a variety of air targets, including helicopters, low-flying aircraft, and missiles. Hensoldt AG created the 4D electronically scanned array known as TRML-4D. (Germany). It can detect more than 1,500 targets simultaneously and has an azimuth coverage of 360 degrees and a range of more than 250 kilometres. Norway purchased five Thales Ground Master 200 Multi-Mission Compact radars (GM200 MM/C) in 2021 through a government-to-government agreement with the Netherlands. Thanks to this acquisition, the Norwegian Armed Forces now have a new mobile artillery position electronically scanned array that is appropriate for both domestic and foreign operations. With a total contract value of USD 94 million and deliveries planned for 2023–2024, the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (FMA) and the Netherlands Defence Materiel Organization (DMO) also contain an option for three more GM200 MM/C systems. The S-band GM200 MM/C from Thales is a palletized 4D dual-axis multi-beam active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar system created for tactical mobility, quick deployment, and combat air observation in support of very-short-range/short-range air-defense weapons.

    Segments Analysis

    By Installation Type

    The market is segmented into fire control radar, tactical data link radar, air traffic control radar, and others.

    By Platform Type

    The market is segmented into Air, Marine, and Land.

    By Frequency Band Type

    The Electronically Scanned Arrays market is segmented into Single Frequency and Multifrequency. Further division of single-band frequencies includes VHF, L-band, S-band, C-band, X-band, and K-band. VHF bands, which range between 30 and 1,000 MHz, are used for long-distance monitoring and tracking. Due to their capacity to provide a lot of bandwidth necessary to collect high-definition signals, they are employed in early warning radar systems like ballistic missile radar, which tracks satellites and missiles. Additionally, these frequencies are employed in biomass-penetrating electronically scanned arrays and foliage/ground penetration. These frequencies can be employed in weather forecasting devices like wind profilers since they are least impacted by rain or cloudbursts.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America will likely maintain its supremacy in the electronically scanned arrays market throughout the forecast period.  The main reason for this region's supremacy is the large concentration of electronically scanned manufacturers together with rising expenditure on research and development operations.

    Concurrently, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the electronically scanned arrays market during the forecast period.  Due to the region's growing population, infrastructural development, economic expansion, urbanization, and industrialization. The Middle East and Africa are bigger markets for electronically scanned arrays than South America.
