Increasing Demand for Technology in enhancing Situational Awareness is key factor driving growth of the market

Adoption for advanced technologies in space sector is fueling situational awareness, owing to factors such as government initiatives toward disaster management, increasing need for cyber security, public safety, and smart infrastructure management. For instance, in December 2005, Indian government took initiative towards disaster management by enacting the Disaster Management Act, 2005, which envisioned the creation of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). The objective of this act is to build a safe and disaster resilient country by developing a holistic, proactive, multi-disaster oriented and technology driven strategy through a culture of prevention, mitigation, preparedness, and response.

Situation awareness is a model of decision making by observing, understanding, and forecasting scenarios. The arena of situation awareness consist of various products, components, and technologies to improve the perception of environmental factors within a specific space and time. Also, it aims in providing information associated with the location of critical assets, along with the state, location, and status of potential threats facing such assets. The key solutions available in the situation awareness systems include human-machine interface (HMI), physical security information management, fire and flood alarm systems, and access control. These solutions have potential application in disaster response, bio-surveillance, smart infrastructure management, and environmental impact tracing.

High Development Cost of SAR due to Frequent Customization is the key factor expected to restrain growth of the market

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems are very important for the Earth Observation (EO) business. Synthetic aperture radar satellites system are typically more expensive to develop, and despite distinct advantages, the images are more complex, raising processing costs. Conventional synthetic aperture radars can balance tens of thousands of pounds and as large as a school bus. This are additionally responsible for providing significant capabilities for remote sensing, communication and science, but this costs hundreds of millions of dollars per satellite and may require years to build and launch.  Owing to this huge investment required to construct, promotion and operation is expected to restraint the growth of the global synthetic aperture radar market during forecast period.

Single-frequency band segment dominated the market in 2016 and expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period

Among the frequency band segment, single-frequency band accounted for the largest share of 84.73% in the global SAR in space sector market in 2016. This growth is attributed to the growing requirement of the data generated by SARs for various defense, research, and commercial applications, including natural resource exploration and tracking ship movements in areas with bad weather conditions. According to Coherent Market Insights analysis, ongoing marine trade relations between Canada and North of Russia are highly prone to extreme weather conditions and icebergs, which in turn propels demand for technologies ensuring safety of the ships and commodities necessitating the requirement of SARs.

Key companies

Major players operating in the global synthetic aperture radar in space sector market include Airbus SE, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Israel Aerospace Industries, Thales Group, Northrop Grumman Corporation, MDA Information Systems, Raytheon Company, Harris Corporation, and BAE Systems.
