Strategy Analytics: Defense Radar Spending Expected to Exceed $20 Billion in 2028

Active Electronically Scanned Arrays Drive Rapid GaN Revenue Increase

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Driven by the benefits of Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA), spending for defense radar systems is forecast to increase to more than $20 billion in 2028. The Strategy Analytics Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) report “Global Radar Market Forecast: 2018 – 2028” segments defense radar spending and shipments by region, domain and mission, along with segmenting expenditures by power level, frequency range, functional content and semiconductor technology. The report forecasts that GaN will be the fastest growing device technology, with revenue increasing by a factor of four over the forecast period.

“AESA radar systems have become required equipment on most new platforms and major upgrades,” noted Eric Higham Director of the Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) service. “The increased capabilities and performance of AESA-based radars help expand mission envelopes and increase force multiplication.” He went on to say, “The performance advantages of GaN are critical to the benefits of AESA radars, so despite the uncertain short-term COVID-19 implications, I remain optimistic that AESA radar deployment and GaN revenue will continue to grow quickly in the defense radar segment.”
