Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), also referred to as drones, are aircraft systems capable of operating without any human pilot aboard. In contrast to other platforms such as aerostat systems, airships, UAVs are capable of hovering over a given region covering larger surface area. Thus, UAVs are majorly preferred over other platforms due to larger covered area.These aircrafts can be operated using a remote control or autonomously using an onboard computer. UAVs can be categorized based on their operating altitude. UAVs can typically fly at altitudes ranging from a few hundred meters to over 30,000 feet from the surface of the Earth. Another major type of UAV (high altitude) are designed to operate at altitudes ranging above 50,000 feet from the Earth’s surface.

UAVs have emerged among the most important aspects across various missions/applications such as defense, border surveillance, surveying, mapping, weather determination and others. Although UAVs are not popularly used across civil applications (as compared to others), the adoption of UAVs in the segment is estimated to soar significantly in the coming years. Additionally, the U.S. government passed a law that allows drone vehicles to be used for civil purposes by 2015. This would increase the demand for UAVs in various applications including police surveillance, traffic monitoring, carbon transport and information relay and transmission among others.

The global unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) market is segmented, based on the altitude category, into following categories

  • Low Altitude UAV (Upto 10,000 feet)
  • Medium Altitude UAV (10,000 to 30,000 feet)
  • High Altitude UAV (Above 50,000 feet)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Market

The overall unmanned aerial vehicles market is led by the high altitude UAV segment accounting for over 50% of the total market revenue. These UAVs are designed to operate altitudes of more than 50,000 feet from the surface of the Earth. This enables these UAVs to cover extremely larger areas as compared to the low and medium altitude UAVs. One of the most significant factors responsible for larger revenue share is the exceptionally high costs of these UAVs over lower altitude UAVs. High altitude UAV typically have costs ranging above US$ 100 Mn.

Low and medium altitude UAV segments are estimated to register significant growth in the coming years. Although the volume of UAVs falling under these categories is higher than high altitude UAVs, low revenue share is due to their low costs. UAVs, also referred to as drones are estimated to soon become popular in civil applications. This may substantially spur the market growth during the forecast period.

On the basis of end-use applications, the unmanned aerial vehicles market is categorized into following segments:

  • Government & Defense
  • Commercial
  • Others (Environmental Monitoring, Satellite Calibration etc.)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Market

The overall unmanned aerial vehicles market, on the basis of application, isled by the government & defense segment.As of 2015, the segment contributed to a market share of more than 60%, in terms of revenue, worldwide. The demand for UAVs, in government & defense segment, rising budget of nations over defense and homeland security sectors. Most of the countries worldwide are focused towards deploying reliable and persistent UAV-based surveillance systems so as to monitor any activities within/pertaining to their territories.

Due to rising threatsfrom terrorists’ activities and border conflicts, the expenditure over UAVs for surveillance systems is predicted to remain strong in the coming years. Thus, the government & defense segment is likely to retain its dominant position, in terms of revenue and adoption, throughout the forecast period across the global market. Nevertheless, the commercial segment is estimated to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The growth is majorly attributed to increasing adoption of UAVs across communication, aerial imaging and other civil applications.

The global unmanned aerial vehicles market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • CIS
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Asia
    • Australasia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Middle East & Africa (MEA)
    • GCC countries
    • North Africa
    • South Africa
    • Rest of MEA
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Market

In 2015, the overall unmanned aerial vehicles market was dominated by North America accounting for more than one third of the total market revenue. The North America UAV market is mainly governed by the U.S. which accounts for more than 80% of the total revenue generated in the region. Due to high spending over UAVs along with the presence of large number of players in the region, the North America segment is anticipated to hold its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period. However, Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region in UAV market worldwide during the forecast period.The demand for UAVs is mainly drivenby countries such as China, India, South Korea and Japan.

The global unmanned aerial vehicles market is segmented, based on the lighting technology, into following categories

  • Surveillance Radar
  • Electro-Optics (Infrared, Laser etc.)
  • Aerial Imaging Cameras
  • Signal Intelligence
  • Communication Relay
  • Navigation Systems
  • Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR)
  • Others

The revenue contribution of payload segments to the overall unmanned aerial vehicles market is quite fragmented in nature. Due to flexible operation offered by the UAV, these systems are increasingly being used across different applications such as surveillance, communication relays, intelligence gathering, environmental monitoring and others. Till date, electro-optics sensors, surveillance radars and imaging cameras are the most popular and prominent payloads used in UAVs. Due to high significance of these applications,the segments are estimated to remain dominant in the market, collectively contributing to more than two third of the total revenue worldwide.
