LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global airport surveillance radar market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
The global airport surveillance radar market is driven by numerous factors such as integration of surveillance radar systems with satellite navigation systems, which will allow ATC operators to track aircraft within their respective airspace more efficiently. The requirement for adopting enhanced data processing procedures will also nurture the adoption of digital airport surveillance radar systems that provide superior performance compared with conventional analog surveillance radar systems.

The top three emerging trends driving the global airport surveillance radar market according to Technavio aerospace and defense research analysts are:
- Increasing investments in airport construction
- Evolution of revised multifunction phased array radar
- Increasing demand due to runway incursions
Increasing investments in airport construction
“The growth in the Middle East is an attribute of the millions of pilgrims visiting Saudi Arabia every year and the impact of the Dubai airport, which is the world’s busiest international airport. The new USD 32 billion Al Maktoum International Airport project, which will be part of Dubai World Central, will enable the airport to cater to 220 million passengers in the UAE,” says Avimanyu Basu, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on aerospace components.
The year 2016 witnessed significant investments in airport construction and refurbishment projects, particularly in APAC, followed by the Middle East. Some of the highest investments are Dubai World Central at almost USD 33 billion and Istanbul Grand at around USD 37 billion. Despite the steep drop in oil prices and the slow recovery of the global economy from the downturn of 2008-2009, the global passenger traffic has been found to be increasing across airports, which engineered the considerable investment.
Evolution of revised multifunction phased array radar
“The multifunction phased array radar project was initially directed toward establishing a platform to simultaneously carry out aircraft tracking, wind profiling, and weather surveillance with the help of a single-phased array weather radar. In comparison with conventional weather radars, which mechanically rotate and require tilting the radar dish to analyze parts of the atmosphere, the phased array radar features a flat panel antenna that remains stationary,” adds Avimanyu.
The MPAR depicts the capability of scanning the sky in less than a minute and can detect potential severe weather conditions. Implementing such technologies will also enable forecasters to identify changes in the storm with respect to its intensity.
Increasing demand due to runway incursions
Runway incursions in any occurrence create a hindrance with aircraft operations in landing and takeoff either due to the presence of human, aircraft, vehicle, or any object on the ground. Reducing runway incursions is one of the top priorities of airport operators and ATC controllers. There is a greater emphasis on the development of runway safety systems for minimizing runway incursions. Airports are currently being installed with radar systems to guide ATC controllers and coordinate aircraft movements on the runway.
