UAV Market to 2021: Industry Capacity, Generation, Investment Trends, Regulations, Trends and Opportunities

“UAV Market”
Market Research Future Published a Cooked Research “Global UAV Market Research Report – Forecast to 2021” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast up to 2021.

Market Highlights:

UAVs, also commonly referred as drones, are the ones without a human pilot aboard. The flight is controlled either autonomously, or by an onboard computer, or by remote control from the ground or another vehicle. The UAVs range from large sized UAVs used for tactical missions that are powered by internal combustion engine to small electric-powered UAVs driven by electric motors. These small electric-powered UAVs are currently mainly used for military and defense applications. Without combustion, these electric-powered UAVs are low sound producing, hence found to be more suitable for the spy missions. In addition, there has been increasing interest for civilian or commercial applications of UAVs for applications such as aerial photography, agriculture, 3D mapping, wildlife protection etc.

One of the drivers for global UAV market is the cost effectiveness of UAVs to acquire and operate in comparison to manned aircraft and helicopters, for various military as well as commercial applications. Moreover, the UAVs (mainly electrically powered) make comparatively low noise during flight, which makes these UAVs very suitable for the spy missions. Furthermore, there has been an increase in global UAV spending and demand for small UAVs which has driven the market growth.

Despite the challenges, there has been a growing demand for small UAVs for civil, commercial, as well as military applications. In addition, there has been an increase in UAV R&D, which stimulate the spending in the market as well as provide improvements in the technology. Currently, the US leads the global market; however, there has been rising demand from the emerging markets as well, mainly from the Middle East and Asia.

Regional Analysis

Majority of the world market is now mainly for military and defense applications, and is dominated by the US. However, increasing demand for the emerging economies have shown interest in implementation of UAVs for border security and surveillance applications. Middle East is one of the emerging market, with Israel being one of the major manufacturers and exporter of UAVs. Asia is also expected to show a substantial growth in the future, mainly dominated by the demand from China.

The US is the global market leader of both UAV demand and as a manufacturer. It is the largest operator of UAVs globally as well. The majority of this demand is mainly supported by military and defense applications, and the US army is the single largest buyer of UAVs worldwide. In addition to the large tactical UAVs, many small electric-powered UAVs have also become common on the battlefield. However, the market has slowed down to some extent in the past two years as the US had started to withdraw its military from the conflict regions (Afghanistan and Iraq), where many of these UAVs were implemented in service for various missions.
