LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The global short-range air-defense missile system market is expected to register a CAGR of over 4% during the period 2018-2022, according to the latest market research report by Technavio.
A key factor driving the market’s growth is the increasing focus on short-range air-defense (SHORAD) capabilities. In countries such as the US, the army has neglected the short-range threats and instead focused on missiles for more than two decades. However, currently, the army is emphasizing on increasing SHORAD capabilities in brigade combat teams. The emergence of unmanned aerial systems, cruise missiles, and long-range rockets pose threats to countries and must be addressed with capable systems. The US army has prioritized on SHORAD and has started re-activating units back to this core competency.
This market research report on the global short-range air-defense missile system market 2018-2022 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio predicts an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Global short-range air-defense missile system market: Emergence of high-tech radar technology
Detection of the missile is the first step towards defending a ballistic missile. Radars play a crucial role in the ballistic missile defense system by rigorously searching, detecting, and tracking any object within its range. The radar systems use complex computer algorithms for discriminating between the threats such as warheads, and non-threats such as commercial aircraft. If the incoming object is found to be hostile, the missile defense system attacks and destroys it.
“New and upgraded radars can be deployed in two different modes based on the user’s needs. For example, in a forward-based mode, the radar is located near the hostile territory and as soon as the missile is launched, its position is acquired in the ascent phase of its flight. The radar then tracks and categorizes the threat, and this information is then conveyed to the decision makers that are present in the command and control battle-management network,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on defense.
