Target drones are autonomous, remotely piloted, or optionally piloted unmanned vehicles primarily utilized for anti-aircraft target practice. These target vehicles can perform a variety of defense operations and are used in combat training, target & decoy, reconnaissance, target identification, and target acquisition, among others. The estimated target drones market is USD 4.5 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 6.4 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2027.
Increased R&D investments and high funding for military training programs are key factors driving the target drones market growth. Additionally, rising incidences of political violence, maritime piracy, terrorism, insurgency, and civil unrest have increased investments in the field of realistic military training & simulation, thereby contributing to the growing demand for target drones.
