Military, Defense, Homeland Security – Primary Aiding Factors to the Unmanned Ground Vehicle Market

Commercial applications specifically in industrial operations and surveillance with the help of robotics utilization in hazardous locations forecast to be some prime propellants in the observation period 2016-2022.

Certain vehicles stay in contact with the ground level without any human interference on board. These vehicles operate with access and control from a distant location. These are extremely smart vehicles which have proved to be of great use in various applications especially in the context of danger, inconvenience or in situations where humans cannot be present. Defense and military are clearly noted to be the more than just majority of the global unmanned ground vehicles market. Global increase in demand from these defense purposes and changing warfare tactics is expected to remain one of the key growth drivers of the UGV market during the period of study: 2016-2022.

Applications Insights:

Apart from military, defense and commercial applications, the unmanned ground vehicle market is pegged to be driven by the rising demand for non-defense applications as well. Increasing performance and betterment of UGVs to solve complex solutions or perform operations is driving the overall market; which is also projected to boost the sales in the coming few years of the industry. Homeland security applications and IED disposal, mine detection and clearance, CBRNE detection operations in the defense sector, and industrial operations in the commercial sector are expected to be the areas that majorly contribute to the demand of UGVs.

The commercial applications specifically in industrial operations and surveillance are expected to drive the Unmanned Ground Vehicle market. Robots are also broadly used in the hazardous operations of disaster response, reconnaissance, reconstruction, and rescue operations during crises.

Geographical Brief:

While North America is noted to be the leading region of the Unmanned Ground Vehicle Market, IndustryARC suggests that APAC follows the lead at number 2 with lastly followed by Europe as the third largest geography of the global market. Higher awareness regarding the importance of unmanned ground vehicles in military and commercial sectors is accounted to be the most primary driving factor for the growing boost in the overall sales.

On the other hand, APAC is pegged to be growing at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period of 2016-2022; owing to rapidly increasing defense budget in the region especially in developing nations such as China and India in this region. Japan is also projected to show good signs of growth during the observation period.
