    Market Insights

    A radome is one of the pith systems of an aircraft as it is designed to protect the antenna system from harsh environments, preserve aerodynamics of the vehicle, provide lightning strike protection, and maintain stealthy attributes. Composites have been the perennial choice of materials over the eons as these materials are transparent and interfere with signals much less than other materials.

    The next five years for the radome market remain vigorous with impressive growth opportunities for the market participants across regions. It is extrapolated that the radome market continues to blossom at a healthy pace and will reach an estimated value of US$ 1.6 billion by 2025. Organic growth of the aerospace industry remains acting as the prime growth driver of the market. Surging commercial and regional aircraft production to support rising air passenger traffic, introduction of fuel-efficient variants of the best-selling aircraft programs (B777x, A320neo, etc.), and upcoming aircraft programs (COMAC C919, Irkut MC21, etc.) are creating a healthy demand for airborne radomes.

    However, increasing demand for in-flight entertainment (IFE) and connectivity, especially in commercial and regional aircraft, is mainly stirring the real flavor of growth to the market. Antenna systems are now multiband and multifunctional and operate “broadband” over numerous different frequencies with trends towards higher frequencies. Operating at a higher frequency (for example Ka instead of Ku band for Wi-Fi) permits the high-speed transmission of big data, allowing them to send and transmit data to the connected aircraft real-time. Such advancements in antenna require a radome that is compatible with the high-frequency band. All the major companies are hammering hard for the development of advanced high-performance SATCOM radome in order to make them a suitable claimant for 5G and multiband, capable of operating at different frequencies.

    Concurrently, the demand for compact, affordable and high-precision radar for military and commercial applications has led to advancements in radar technology. Many companies and military organizations are investing in 3D radar systems to increase the performance and efficiency of weather monitoring, military and surveillance systems.

    Segments' Analysis

    Radome Market Share: By Offering Type

    Based on the offering type, the market is segmented as radome body, accessories, and services. Radome body is further bifurcated based on the material type glass fiber radome, quartz fiber radome, and other radomes; structure type as solid laminate, sandwich construction, and others; and as radome type as nose radome, SATCOM radome, and others. Radome body is likely to maintain its unassailable dominance in years to come, whereas services are likely to witness the highest growth.

    Radome Market Share: By Application Type

    based on the application type, the market is segmented as ground-based radome, airborne radome, and shipboard radome. The ground-based radome market is further segmented into telecom tower, air traffic control (ATC), air defense radome, and ground vehicle. Similarly, the airborne radome market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, military aircraft, helicopter, and UAV and the shipborne radome market into commercial ships and military ships. Airborne radome is likely to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment of the market in the coming five years. In airborne radome, commercial aircraft is anticipated to remain the growth engine in the foreseen future. UAV, a relatively small segment, is expected to generate impressive growth opportunities for the market participants in the coming years, mainly governed by the USA. 

    Radome Market Share: By Region

    In terms of regions, North America is projected to remain the largest market during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the North American radome market. The country is the hub for the aerospace industry with the presence of several aircraft OEMs, tier players, radome manufacturers, and raw material suppliers. Most of the major radome manufacturers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of the OEMs in order to be the partner for their upcoming aircraft programs or upcoming fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to depict the highest growth during the forecast period. The region is likely to remain the most eye-catching market in the foreseeable future, mainly driven by the opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus in China for B737, A320, and A330 aircraft programs. Upcoming indigenous commercial and regional aircraft (COMAC C919 and Mitsubishi MRJ); rising aircraft fleet size; and increasing military spending by countries such as China and India further assure the region’s attractiveness in the long haul.


    Market Scope & Segmentation

    Radome is a dome structured shelter that is there to protect the radar or antenna. It is mainly weather resistant and is made up of material that does not hinder the transmission of the signal to and from the antenna. The radome protects the radar or antenna from weather conditions and also from any other equipment or items.

    Radome can be of various shapes such as spherical, planal, and so on. They can be used on the ground or on the aircraft or also on the shipboard as per the requirements.
