The ground control station market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 2.91 Billion in 2017 to USD 5.25 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR 12.54% from 2017 to 2022. The increasing number of UAVs in commercial and military sectors is expected to drive the market. Another key factor that is going to influence this market is the growing demand for lightweight and portable ground control stations for warfare operations.

The ground control station market has been segmented on the basis of type, platform, system, services, and region. Based on type, the ground control station market has been segmented into mobile and portable. The mobile segment is going to lead the GCS market due to the increasing demand for military unmanned systems. The increasing demand for mobile GCS for border surveillance is also driving the market,

Based on system, the hardware segment is estimated to be the largest segment of the ground control station market. This is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for upgradation of existing systems for new applications as old technologies are becoming obsolete very fast.

Based on services, the ground control station market has been segmented into integration, maintenance, upgradation/modernization, training, and leasing. The integration segment is estimated to lead the ground control station market. As unmanned system payloads are evolving, the demand for integrating new systems is also increasing. The need for modern warfare systems such as electronic warfare systems and network-centric warfare systems is also driving the GCS market.

The ground control station market has been studied for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Rest of the World (RoW). The North American region is estimated to be the largest market for ground control stations in 2017. Countries in this region include the US and Canada. North America is home to some of the biggest unmanned system manufacturers such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and General Atomics. As the regulatory framework for unmanned systems has been eased for commercial usage, the demand for these system is likely to grow in the coming years. The US Armed Forces are also adopting unmanned systems for surveillance and warfare situations.

Ground Control Station Market

Consolidation of ground control stations to control multiple unmanned vehicles acts as one of the major restraints for the ground control station market. Major companies profiled in the report include Elbit Systems (Israel), Raytheon Company (US), Lockheed Martin (US), L3 Technologies (US), Textron Systems (US), General Dynamics (US), AERODRONES (France), Robosys Automation and Robotics (India), Asseco Poland SA (Poland), AL Marakeb (UAE), Real-Time Innovations (US), and UAV Solutions (US), among others. New product launches and supply contracts were the key strategies adopted by leading players in the ground control station market from 2012 to 2017. These strategies have enabled companies to strengthen their position in the market.
