UAV drones market projected to grow at a CAGR of 19.99% between 2016 and 2022

The UAV market has entered the growth phase and is expected to grow further in the coming years. The market is expected to be worth USD 21.23 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 19.99% between 2016 and 2022. The drivers for this market are rapid technological advancements in drones and the growing demand for drone-generated data in commercial applications. The main restraint for this market is social issues such as privacy and nuisance concerns.  

Precision agriculture application for commercial drones is estimated to grow at the highest rate

The precision agriculture market for drones is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Drones are useful for agricultural planners as they greatly reduce the time and cost required to conduct an accurate survey and offer real-time data collection, high resolution imagery of farmland, and are low cost in comparison with other related techniques.

Camera component is estimated to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period

Camera systems are used in UAVs for round-the-clock video monitoring, investigation, remote surveillance, border security, protection of critical infrastructure, thermographic inspection of inaccessible buildings, and firefighting & law enforcement jobs. Camera systems for UAVs include multispectral camera, thermal camera, LIDAR camera, and high-resolution camera, among others.

APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing market for UAV drones during the forecast period

The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR because the countries in these regions such as China, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand, among others are using drones for precision agriculture, inspection, and surveying on a large scale. Also, the countries in these regions are considering the use of military drones for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations.

Breakdown of profile of primary participants:

  • By Company Type: Tier 1 - 35 %, Tier 2 - 45%, and Tier 3 - 20%
  • By Designation: C-level Executives - 35%, Directors - 25%, and Others - 40%
  • By Region: North America - 45%, Europe - 20%, APAC - 30%, and RoW - 5%

The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market is estimated to be USD 13.22 Billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 28.27 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 13.51% during the forecast period. Key factors fueling the growth of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market include increasing demand for UAVs for commercial applications, advancements in technologies of drone payloads, and increasing defense budgets of emerging economies.

Based on application, the civil & commercial application segment of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR, as UAVs offer attractive platforms for a broad range of potential applications, such as aerial remote sensing, greenhouse emission monitoring, and precision agriculture, among others. In addition, there have been various procurements and investments in civil & commercial applications of UAVs worldwide. Military application dominated the market in 2015 as UAVs have the capability of reducing collateral damage while hovering, searching, identifying, and striking targets, which makes them an invaluable asset for the military.

Based on class, the small UAV segment of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to high dynamic capabilities of small UAVs owing to a wide range of opportunities in commercial applications and potentialities to execute a lethal force on the battlefield. Private and government organizations are undertaking various R&D programs to increase the use of small UAVs in various applications. The strategic UAV segment is estimated to lead the studied market in 2016 as strategic UAVs can carry out extensively long-range reconnaissance and surveillance operations.

Based on payload, the Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) segment of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market accounted for the largest share of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market in 2015, owing to the rising use of UAVs in the defense sector. The market for the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) payload is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as this payload is compact in size, lightweight, and is capable of performing real-time imaging.

The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market has been further segmented based on energy source and material type. Based on energy source, the fuel cell segment of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR due to increased endurance provided by fuel cells. Based on material type, the Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) segment of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR due to material qualities such as lightweight, high strength, enhanced durability, and low thermal shrinkage.

North America dominated the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market in 2015 due to increased UAV application in military, homeland security, and commercial areas. The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Instability due to internal political tensions, growing trend of automation, and globalization in the region are the main factors fueling the growth of the UAV market.

Key players in the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market are Northrop Grumman (U.S.) Inc., SZ DJI Technology Co., Ltd. (China), Textron Inc. (U.S.), Parrot SA (France), IAI Ltd. (Israel), AeroVironment, Inc. (U.S.), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S.), and The Boeing Company (U.S.), among others.

New product launches and contracts were the key strategies adopted by industry players to grow in the of the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market. The increased demand for UAVs coupled with high economic growth in developing countries have encouraged companies to adopt the aforementioned strategies. For instance, in February 2016, Northrop Grumman Corporation successfully flew a SYERS-2 intelligence-gathering sensor on a RQ-4 Global Hawk high-altitude and long-endurance unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
