Posted by Savni on November 27th, 2019

Global Military Surveillance Drone Market: Information by Drone Type (Fixed Wing Drone, Rotary Blade Drone and Hybrid Drone), Payload (Electro-Optic/Infrared Sensor, Cameras, Electronic Intelligence, Maritime Patrol Radar and others),  Technology (Hardware and Software) and Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America) - Forecast till 2025

Market Scenario:

The global military surveillance drones’ market is predicted to garner USD 4549.4 million, grabbing a CAGR of 11.96 % during the forecast period (2016-2023) owing to the augmenting internal and external security threats, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Drones are the next-generation aerial platforms which are deployed by the defense ministries globally. Military drones are referred to as flying weapons and flying cameras that can be controlled with the help of a remote. Military drones are generally used for lifting the cameras above the ground so that every individual who requires it can use a camera to look down from above for surveillance. Military drones help to achieve terrorist control tasks. Such drones are used for reconnaissance, surveillance, and intelligence missions.
