Forecast International Projects Naval Radar Market Worth More than $13 Billion Over 10 Years

NEWTOWN, Conn., July 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Forecast International has released its latest analysis of the sea-based radar market. "The Market for Naval Radar Systems" provides a detailed review of 32 distinct naval radar programs – looking at trends, presenting forecast data, and reviewing some of the standout features. Viewed as a group, these samples provide an in-depth look at the major trends in sea-based radars.

Covered in the analysis are six naval radar market segments: Air Defense, Electronic Countermeasures, Fire Control, Navigation, Search & Track, and Surveillance. The most valuable segment will be Air Defense, at $8.3 billion in value from 2016-2025.

Forecast International projects that the value of the entire sea-based radar market will reach $13.267 billion over the next decade. Over this period, the market sample is expected to achieve production of at least 1,000 units, with production accounting for 67.2 percent of market value.

The 10-year analysis also covers representative pre-production RDT &E and post-production O &M programs, such as the U.S. Navy's SPY-1 and SPY-6 Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR). During the 2016-2025 forecast period, RDT &E and O &M are expected to make up 18.9 percent and 14.0 percent of the total market value, respectively.
