11 Jun 13. Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Global Military Radar Systems Market 2013-2023 – Passive & Active Systems. The global military radar systems market is currently in a state of flux, primarily as a result of sweeping defence budget cuts in many established markets which have impacted heavily on procurement. While counteracting forces of spending increases in emerging markets and new technologies are undoubtedly present, they represent only a limited effect on the military radar systems market as a whole. The security picture over the next decade (involving increased access to ballistic missile technologies and increased tensions in East Asia and the Middle East) will continue to provide a pressing need for procurement and upgraded radar technology, although these demands will continue to be counterbalanced by economic reality. As a consequence, visiongain’s analysis indicates that the military radar systems market is set to reach $8.57bn in 2013. (Source: Yahoo!/PRNewswire)
