Airport Surveillance Radar Market Projected to Grow at a CAGR of 7.05% to Reach US$592.624 Million by 2024


Airport surveillance radar system(ASR) is installed in airports to identify the position of the aircraft in the airspace around airports. It helps in maintaining a safe flow of air traffic and preventing collisions. ASR system can be segmented as primary surveillance radar and secondary surveillance radar. The primary system detects the location of aircraft while the secondary surveillance system interacts with the transponders of aircraft and transmits a signal back containing the airplane’s ID and elevation. It comprises of radar unit and other telecommunication components.  ASR helps air traffic controllers to manage movements of aircraft on the runway.

Drivers and restraints of Airport Surveillance Radar Market

Airport surveillance radar market is flying with the growth of the travel and tourism industry. Increasing disposable income of the people, and inclination towards faster, and comfortable way of commuting has increased the air commuters.  Growing air traffics at airports requires proper control systems such as airport surveillance radar, to mitigate aviation accidents. Growing concerns regarding the safety of commuters are boosting the airport surveillance radar market growth. The increasing number of fatalities have brought government concern towards passenger safety and making them upgrade their poor surveillance to advanced surveillance. Growing security threats in several countries have increased defense spending. Airport surveillance radar market analysis shows that increasing defense spending for border surveillance, and other applications, increasing air commuters, and increasing safety concerns for commuters are increasing the airport surveillance radar market size. However, major challenges for the airport surveillance radar market are the high installation cost of such devices and unskilled manpower. Under trained personnel leads to improper management of the air services which can be a major threat to the market.
