Increasing investment in surveillance and other defense is the major factor for synthetic aperture radar market growth.

In defense, synthetic aperture radar enables one to detect of missile sites as well as to map the territory of the opponent to plan further operations. Synthetic aperture radar attached to military aircraft offers an easy collection of crucial information to resolve situational problems such as sudden changes in climate, disaster management, resource monitoring, and a few others.

On the other hand, with escalating demand for multipurpose satellite imagery, and earth scanning applications, the need for change in conventional disaster detection methods is constantly increasing. These factors are showing great potential for the synthetic aperture radar market.

Seawater motion signatures imaging is one of the most vital and traditional applications of synthetic aperture radar; whereas, the digital elevation model is among the emerging applications. In 2010, data from the synthetic aperture radar of a satellite named Cassini was used to produce a digital model of the hydrocarbon lake on Titan. Furthermore, synthetic aperture radar is finding new applications including shipping & transportation, agriculture, natural resources, and others. With advancements in radar technology, geosynchronous synthetic aperture radar has been developed that is used to inspect areas under rapidly moving format. Applications such as atmospheric phase measurement, ground motions & geo hazards monitoring and others are going to gain traction due to geosynchronous SAR. Such vital applications of this advancement make it important for the future development of the synthetic aperture radar market.

North America is the most prominent geographic region for the synthetic aperture radar market. Heavy expenditure on defense and surveillance systems along with prolonged penetration of synthetic aperture radar are major factors responsible for market growth. Nevertheless, growing scientific research operations and defense budget in the Asia Pacific region are showing significant potential for the synthetic aperture radar market.
