High Demand from Military Sector to Bolster Global UAV Market

Posted by Nita on January 29th, 2021

Market Introduction

Market Research Future (MRFR) reveals in its extensive report that the global unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market is presumed to grow at a CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast period (2017-2023). Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are also referred to as drones, are used as aircraft systems without a human pilot aboard. They are mostly employed in missions which are dangerous for manned aircraft. They are used for applications like mapping, security, surveillance, etc. Moreover, it is used to collect data about certain terrain and battlefield area for military purposes.

Drivers and Restraints

The market growth is positively influenced by increasing adoption of unmanned aerial vehicle in military and commercial sector. Few devices have the ability to carry missiles and hit the target with high accuracy. These are used in aircraft with smaller dimensions to gather information about hostile places before a mission.

Their use in providing extensive information for disaster relief is bound to fuel the overall market growth. Commercial purpose usage is another key factor that is contributing to the overall industry demand. Apart from this, implementation of modern agriculture methods gives major push to the market growth, as they are used for crop spraying, monitoring livestock, crops and water levels. Sophisticated UAV provide a 3D field image which aids in planning for future expansion.

There is a flip side to the driving factors as well, namely government regulations that prohibit the use of UAV, acting as a barrier to the market growth. However, despite the challenges, its application in multiple industries such as oil and gas sector is increasing, which results in a considerable development of the market. increasing usage of UAV across various industries is envisaged to augment the market growth in the foreseeable future as well.

Market Segmentation

The global UAV market is segmented on the basis of type, application and platform.

By type, the market is segmented into combat, small, strategic, tactical and others. Combat UAV finds applications for surveillance, artillery fire direction, lasing targets for fighter planes, and post-strike damage assessment. Moreover, the changing nature of advanced warfare is predicted to fuel the growth prospects for the combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) market.

By application, the market is segmented into military, commercial, agriculture and others. Military expenditure coupled with benefits offered by UAVs in military sector such as reducing collateral damage, while hovering, searching, identifying, and striking targets, have turned them into an asset in military operations.

By platform, the market is segmented into fixed-wing, rotary-wing and others. Fixed-wing UAVs possess the capabilities of taking off and landing vertically and then transiting into a horizontal flight which eliminates the need for long runway infrastructure without compromising the speed and endurance. These benefits offered by fixed-wing UAVs fuel the demand for them in commercial, military, and law enforcement applications.
