The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Market research report provides the market analysis for UAVs over the next six years (2014 – 2020). It discusses the industry, market, and technology trends that are currently prevailing, in the market. The UAVs are categorized on the basis of class, sub-systems, payloads, applications, and geography. The global UAV market is valued at $6,762 million in 2014 and is expected to show a robust growth reaching $10,573 million in 2020, thereby registering a CAGR of 7.73%, till 2020.

The unmanned aerial vehicle market is driven by the reduced risks associated with the use of UAVs, increasing demand for the UAVs in the commercial and defense sectors, and better technological innovations that have created a demand for the UAVs in performing complex operations with reduction in the need for human intervention. The success of UAVs in combat operationshas increased their demand by the countries inthe North American, the Middle Eastern and Asia-Pacific region. Reduced defense budget in the North American and European countries in the recent years, is expected to hamper the growth of this market. The lack of skilled and trained pilots along with, strict airspace regulations is expected to constraint the UAV market. There is a huge scope for research and development of UAVs in increasing their operational efficiency and providing complete autonomy. Investments are being made by the emerging countries for adopting autonomous control systems for various applications.

North America accounted for 69% for the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Market in 2014. Large scale Unmanned Aerial Vehicle production and demand in the U.S. and Canada is expected to continue to influence the share of these countries in the UAV market,during the forecast period. Moreover, new R&D programs for applications of the UAV for combat operations, border security, maritime security, and detection of intruders or enemy force is projected to continue to drive the growth of market. The APAC region has the second highest share in the UAV market with China, India, Australia, and South Koreabeing the prominent markets. The training for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle's operation and maintenance is projected to enhance the scope of this market globally,during theforecast period. The application of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for border patrolling and homeland securityis expected to boost this market, across the globe. The U.K., Russia, Germany, and France are expected to be the potential markets from the European region.

The UAVs’ SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) and EW (Electronic Warfare) payloads market size is expected to increase, due to rise in their application in UAVs. The CNRNE sensors are specialized sensors used for reconnaissance and clearance of the chemical and biological discharge in hazardous situations. The maritime patrol radar payloads are expected to witness a rise in the market demand, due to the increase in demand for UAVs in naval operations. Adaptability to varied environmental conditions while performing operations and ensuring operational safety in such situations isalso a concern for the UAVs. The SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) payloads have contributedto the largest share as in 13.75% of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle payload market, in 2014. High resolution cameras and navigation systems would also be the prominent payloads for the UAVs.

The border conflicts, war like situations and the threats caused by rising terrorism are expected to boost the market for armed forces, across the world. Extensive use of UAVs in the commercial, defense, and homeland security sectors is expected to raise the demand for these UAVs, globally. The commercial applications market of UAV is expected to show a strong growth in the coming years.UAVs are also broadly used in hazardous operations of disaster response, reconnaissance, reconstruction, and rescue operations during crises. The commercial applications of UAVs such as, photography, wild life research & survey, agriculture, surveying, and mappingwould offer great opportunitiesfor growth, in the near future.

GA-ASI (U.S.), Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.), Elbit Systems Ltd (Israel), IAI Ltd. (Israel), and AeroVironment Inc.(U.S.) are the key players for the UGVs, globally and account for more than 57% of the total market share. Companies such as Lockheed Martin (U.S.), The Boeing Company (U.S.), BAE Systems Plc (U.K.), Textron (U.S.), Aeronautics Ltd. (Israel), Safran SA (France), SAAB AB (Sweden), Thales Group (France), TAI Inc. (Turkey), and Aviation Industry Corporation of China are other prominent players in the unmanned aerial vehicle market.
