22 The PCB Design Magazine • October 2016 line retail and electronics business-to-business ordering practices, which now put pressure on factories to produce only what is needed, almost on a daily basis. Such flexibility demands that individual automated processes themselves be automated, which will change the face of man- ufacturing forever. Design is included in these changes, as many more variant of products are needed on more frequent new product cycles. Here, then, is the excitement. Every true leader and manager needs to embrace the re- ality of changes happening in the market and prepare for the emerging opportunities for their own team and individual operations, which also creates a much more progressive approach to design, product engineering, and manufac- turing. The latest software tools for design and manufacturing are awesome compared with those that most people are still using. So let's get the momentum going. Managers, remember: You are the leaders! PCBDESIGN Michael Ford is the marketing development manager of Mentor Graphics. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MANAGER AND A TRUE LEADER? Growth witnessed by the global military ra- dar market has remained steady over the last few years. The vendor land- scape of the market for all these years has remained highly fragmented with lo- cal players, excluding a few leading companies holding around 46% of the market, based on value in 2013, finds Transparency Market Research (TMR). The top five companies holding lead in the global military radar market are Saab Sen - sis Corporation, ASELSAN Inc., Terma A/S, Harris Cor- poration, and DRS Technologies. The global military radar market is poised to reach US$8.4 billion by the end of 2019, from a valuation of US$7.1 billion in 2013. The market is therefore poised to exhibit a CAGR of 2.9% be- tween 2013 and 2019. Regionally, North America reported dominance in the global market with a share of 33% based on value in 2012. Besides this, Asia Pacific is also projected to exhibit lucrative op- portunities for the market during the forecast peri- od. By type, ground based and airborne segments led the market in 2012. Among these, the ground based radar segment dominated the market with a share of 30.50% in terms of value in the year. Nations around the world have been increas- ing their defense budget to enhance their capabili- ties in naval vessels, mis- sile defense systems, and military aircrafts. Several countries are witnessing border protection issues with illegal trespassing and trafficking on the rise. The situation has motivated nations to empower their border security using virtual electronic fence systems. This will boost installation of military ra - dars around the world. Moreover, various nations are looking to develop domestic military radar producing capabilities by establishing strategic al- liances and technology transfer agreements. This trend is expected to bolster opportunities for mili- tary radar manufacturers in both national and in- ternational markets.
