The global military robots market is projected to grow from USD 13.55 Billion in 2015 to USD 21.11 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 9.27% during the period under consideration. This report covers the forecasts of the military robots market and its dynamics over the next five years, while also recognizing the market application gaps, evolving technologies, recent developments in the market, and high potential geographic regions and countries. The military robots market has been analyzed on the basis of application (including Warfield robots, pick-n-place robots, firefighting robots, metal detector robotic vehicle and voice controlled robotic vehicle) and platform (Airborne, Land and Naval).

The increase need for better cross border surveillance is expected to drive the growth of the military robots market during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020. While this will be offset by the reduction in defense spending by developed nations, the increasing defense budgets of emerging economies to meet the rising need for advanced, efficient, and reliable robots, and the trend of military modernization across these nations are expected to drive the overall market growth further

The base year for the market analysis is 2014. The market size estimations for the various segments and sub-segments of this market were arrived at through extensive secondary research, corroboration with primaries, and further market triangulation with the help of statistical techniques using econometric tools.

All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns were determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources. All possible parameters that affect the market covered in this research study have been accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to get the final quantitative and qualitative data. This data is consolidated and added with detailed inputs and analysis from MarketsandMarkets and presented in this report.

The military robot market is projected to grow from USD 13.55 Billion in 2015 to USD 21.11 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 9.27% during the forecast period. Factors, such as increase need for the better cross border surveillance, improving effectiveness and efficiency of the operation in automation, and minimization of causalities are the major factors which will drive the military robots market.

On the basis of platform, the given market has been segmented into airborne, naval and land. The airborne segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020, as demand for the UAV across all the industries is increasing globally. UAVs have been increasing the interest of various manufacturers and their inclination towards the UAV market. Government organizations and private agencies have been investing a lot in the manufacture and development of advanced and efficient UAVs.

The market for military robots has been segmented based on application such as Warfield robots, firefighting robots, pick ‘n’ place robots, metal detector robotic. The application sector dominates the studied market, and is expected to continue its dominance over the next 5 years, primarily driven by the rise in demand in the military and homeland for the border surveillance and battle field operations.

The Europe region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate in the military robot market, and is projected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. The European market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, because manufacturing companies in Europe have profound knowledge of how to build speech and haptics-based human machine interface, grippers and dexterous hands, and systems for navigation and collision avoidance. This is specifically in Europe and not in other regions because Europe has innovation-driven and export-oriented robot industry and currently it has been estimated that more than 250 universities and research institutes offer education and research in robotics. Europe is ahead in developing technologies which are used by military robot manufactures for successful implementation of military robots.

Military Robots Market

The growth of the military robots market may be, however, affected by certain major restraints in the coming years. These factors include the declining budgets of the major economies of North America and Europe; especially the U.S., which is one of the most important players in the manufacturing of military robots.

The key players operating in the global ammunition market have been identified to be Northrop Grumman (U.S.), Lockheed Martin (U.S.), Israel Aerospace Industries (Israel), Boston Dynamics (U.S.), and iRobot (U.S.), among others. Long-term contracts and mergers & acquisitions are the two major growth strategies adopted by the major players to strengthen their positions in the global market, while also enhancing their product offerings.
