The report "Military Drone Market by Platform, Type (Fixed Wing, Rotary Wing, And Hybrid), Application, Mtow, Propulsion (Turbo Engine, Piston Engine and Battery), Operation Mode, Speed, Launching Mode & Region - Global Forecast to 2027" The military drone market is projected to grow from USD 12.0 billion in 2022 to USD 17.0 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2022 to 2027. The growth of the market across the globe can be attributed to surging investment in development and procurement of modern military solution to enhance defense forces capabilities. Moreover, the increasing incidences of piracy and island grabbing in Central Asia, South America, East Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and West Africa have led to increased maritime patrolling and anti-piracy operations in these regions. This, in turn, has led to the increased use of UAVs to carry out maritime patrolling to identify hot spots. UAVs can recognize and observe suspicious ships and safeguard routes that are of commercial importance by providing vital real-time information to concerned agencies in an effective manner.

Based on Application, the growing use of military drones for cargo transport of ammunition and food supply on the battlefields is projected to boost the delivery segment.
Increasing demand for unmanned systems in the defense sector has led to the growth of the military drone market across the globe. The growing use of various disruptive technologies in modern warfare has led to increased demand for strategic and special purpose drones in military applications. Several countries worldwide are undertaking R&D programs to explore and augment the applications of military drones. Military drones exhibit extreme efficiency and potential during low-altitude flights. They are increasingly being utilized in military applications to perform various tasks in hostile territories. They are used during conflicts as well as in peacetimes to mitigate risks to the lives of pilots and to enhance the aeronautical capabilities of defense forces. Military drones are widely accepted by the defense sector worldwide, owing to their limited operational costs in comparison to manned aircraft and the benefits offered by them.
Based on propulsion, the battery segment is anticipated to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
Based on propulsion, the military drone market has been classified into engine, piston engine, and battery. The battery segment includes military drones which are operated on lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, and hybrid cells. The battery segment is anticipated to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period, with many short-range and medium-range drones adopting batteries besides the small drones. Battery or electrically-powered military drones use batteries to store energy and power electric motors. These drones are easy to operate and emit lesser noise as compared to turbo engine drones. However, lithium-ion batteries used in military drones need to be recharged once the charge is depleted; the process of recharging consumes a substantial amount of time. In contrast, fuel-powered military drones can be refueled at a quick pace. Hydrogen-powered military drones offer the benefit of electric propulsion, thereby enabling military drones to fly for long durations.
Based on speed, the subsonic segment is estimated to register large share in the base year.
Based on speed, military drone market has been segmented into subsonic and supersonic. The subsonic segment has been further divided into <100 Km/hr, 100–300 Km/hr, and >300 Km/hr. The subsonic segment contributed to the majority share of the market as currently, most military drones operate at conventional subsonic speeds. Drones with a speed of less than 100 km/hr generally include small ISR drones and some close-range drones. The growing demand for small drone platforms is set to boost the growth of the <100 km/hr segment. Moreover, drones with a subsonic speed ranging from 100–300 km/hr are generally medium endurance, low to medium range drones such as close range, short range, medium range, and tactical drones. The increasing use of tactical drones for ISR applications is set to boost the growth of the 100–300 km/hr segment. Furthermore, drones with a more than 300 km/hr subsonic speed are high endurance, medium to long range, high-speed drones. The growing demand for armed drones such as lethal drones and target drones is set to boost the growth of the >300 km/hr segment.
Growing use of UAVs fo marine border patrolling
The increasing incidences of piracy and island grabbing in Central Asia, South America, East Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and West Africa have led to increased maritime patrolling and anti-piracy operations in these regions. This, in turn, has led to the increased use of UAVs to carry out maritime patrolling to identify hot spots. UAVs can recognize and observe suspicious ships and safeguard routes that are of commercial importance by providing vital real-time information to concerned agencies in an effective manner. Threats to maritime trade are continuously increasing, which is affecting the transportation of goods across the globe. In addition, the rising unrest in the Middle East, growing territorial disputes in Eastern Asia, and increasing instances of asymmetric warfare around the world have led to the increased need for countries to secure their littorals, ports, estuaries, channels, and water bodies. UAVs are highly responsive and can address threats to marine borders as well as safeguard them.
UAVs are also routinely used for observation, reconnaissance, and mine countermeasures by defense forces of different countries to ensure the security of their maritime borders. They are used for the safety and security of infrastructures such as bridges, marinas, and areas for explosive ordnance disposal. UAVs are also used to detect the illegal trafficking of drugs and weapons. Thus, the increasing use of UAVs for aforesaid activities acts as a driver for the military drone market.
The Asia Pacific region is projected to be high growth potential markets for the military drone during the forecast period.
