The unmanned ground vehicle market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.49 Billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 2.63 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 12.14% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study is 2015, and the forecast period is 2016 to 2021.

Objectives of the Study:

The objectives of this study are to analyze the unmanned ground vehicle market, along with statistics from 2016 to 2021, as well as to define, describe, and forecast the unmanned ground vehicle market on the basis of application (commercial and defense), mobility (wheeled and tracked), size (micro UGV, small UGV, medium UGV, large UGV), mode of operation (tethered, tele-operated, semi-autonomous, autonomous), component (hardware, software), and payload (sensors, radar, lasers, camera, motor encoder, and GPS antenna). These segments and subsegments are mapped across major regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Rest of the World.

The report provides in-depth market intelligence regarding the market dynamics and major factors influencing the growth of the unmanned ground vehicle market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges), along with an analysis of micromarkets with respect to individual growth trends, prospects, and their contribution to the UGV market.

The report also covers competitive developments such as long-term contracts, joint ventures, mergers, new product launches and developments, and research & development activities in the unmanned ground vehicle market, in addition to other business and corporate strategies adopted by the key market players.

Research Methodology:

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the unmanned ground vehicle market begins with obtaining data on key unmanned ground vehicle equipment statistics through secondary sources, such as government sources and organizations, for instance, Department of Defense, Department of Army; corporate filings, for instance, annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements; and trade, business, and professional associations, among others. The bottom-up approach has been employed to arrive at the overall size of the unmanned ground vehicle market from the revenues of key market players and their shares in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with market experts such as, CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. These data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall unmanned ground vehicle market engineering process, and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primaries is depicted in the below figure:

The unmanned ground vehicle market is projected to grow from USD 1.49 Billion in 2016 to USD 2.63 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 12.14% during the forecast period. Factors, such as the need for increasing operational efficiency, reduced human intervention, and growth in terrorist activities around the world are expected to drive the unmanned ground vehicle market.

Based on application, the unmanned ground vehicle market is segmented into commercial and defense segments. The commercial application segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, primarily driven by the rising automation in various commercial and applications such as agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, and domestic applications, among others.

The unmanned ground vehicle market, based on mobility, is segmented into wheeled and tracked UGVs. The tracked UGV segment leads the market and is estimated to continue to lead during the next five years as these UGVs are better suited for rough and unpredictable terrains and are being increasingly used for critical missions.

Based on size, the unmanned ground vehicle market is segmented into micro UGV, small UGV, medium UGV, and large UGV. The small UGV segment leads the market and is estimated to be the highest growing segment during the next five years, as small UGVs are used for most domestic applications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications in the defense sector.

Based on mode of operation, the unmanned ground vehicle market is segmented into tethered, tele-operated, semi-autonomous, and autonomous. The tele-operated segment leads the market as it is a mature technology and has been tested on field for several years. The autonomous segment is estimated to be the highest growing segment during the next five years, as autonomous UGVs is the future trend and many countries are investing in the development of autonomous troops for the army.

Based on component, the unmanned ground vehicle market is segmented into hardware and software. The hardware segment leads the market, while the software segment is estimated to be the highest growing segment during the next five years, as the development of autonomous UGVs will drive the software technology for UGV to grow in the coming years.

The Asia-Pacific unmanned ground vehicle market is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Countries in this region, such as India and China, have increased their defense budgets and are investing in the development and procurement of advanced systems for military operations. Advancements in manufacturing capabilities of the emerging economies in this region will drive growth of UGV market in the commercial sector.

Unmanned Ground Vehicle Market

Factors such as limited reliability of unmanned ground vehicles on field and the unpredictable environments during missions may inhibit the growth of the unmanned ground vehicles market.

Key players profiled in the unmanned ground vehicles market report include QinetiQ Group Plc (U.K.), Northrop Grumman (U.S.), Lockheed Martin (U.S.), iRobot Corp (U.S.), and Oshkosh Corporation (U.S.), among others. New product launch was the key strategy adopted by the industry players to achieve growth in the unmanned ground vehicles market. This strategy accounted for a major share of the total growth strategies adopted by the leading players in 2016. QinetiQ North America, in association with Milrem, developed Titan unmanned ground vehicle. It is a state-of-the-art modular and hybrid UGV and was launched at the 2016 Association of the U.S. Army event.
