In several developing economies, line fit based target drones is witnessing extensive acceptance due to their cost-effectiveness and wider accessibility in emerging regions. The growing number of innovation and patent registrations in several developed nations is expected to emphasize the market. Advancements in simulation technologies and the massive R&D capabilities being spent on developing these technologies are notable factors increasing the market. As target drones are unmanned aerial vehicles they can be controlled by remote and are mainly used in the defense. They are the alternatives for aerial targets mainly used in evaluation, testing, research and development. The current target drones are used in radar and countermeasures in order to mimic the manned aircraft.

The rise in funds for training programs in the military across the world is expected to fuel the demand for target drones as they are progressively being accepted in the defense sector for training. Furthermore, the rise in instances of political terrorism, and maritime piracy have amplified the investments for realistic military training. However, lack of skilled workforces to control and operate the target drones is expected to hamper the market during the forecast period.
