The defense sector continues to grow, with various countries increasing their defense budgets and contributing to between 3% and 4% growth in 2020 to reach $1.9 trillion in total, according to consultancy Deloitte.1

A key piece of equipment for not only the defense market but for commercial navigation as well is X-band (8 GHz to 12 GHz) radar. While aviation is one of the major industries extensively using them, X-band radars are now being deployed across a wide range of applications, including fire-control systems and other military platforms, unmanned aerial vehicles, maritime vessel traffic control, weather monitoring, bird activity detection near airports, and anti-icing remote sensing.

According to market researcher Strategy Analytics, it is the largest radar segment, with sales in this band reaching nearly $6.3 billion in 2018 and expenditures set to grow at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 3.4% to cross $8.7 billion in 2028.2
