Automation has gradually become a mainstream phenomenon transcending technical barriers that were once a challenge to reckon with. Unmanned ground vehicles as a part of the automation is finding growing usage across both commercial and defense applications. In case of industrial automation it has been an integral part of the manufacturing activities over three decades and is currently pushing it to a next level, with increasing autonomy of the systems. It not only helped in reducing dependence on human labor and relocation of human resource but also brings in high productivity. However, in defense and security applications, UGVs are used for explosives handling, logistics and surveillance operations thereby reducing risk to the life of the soldiers.

Unmanned ground vehicles are of two types viz. wheeled, tracked and the others. Though all of them are meant to help move in-process goods and materials, there are several customized unmanned ground vehicles designed for special purposes.

In the upcoming years, emerging navigation technologies will play a crucial role in adoption of unmanned ground vehicles in both commercial and defense applications. In case of commercial application, the future demand will be from industries such as ecommerce, logistics, agriculture, manufacturing and mining. Emerging navigation technologies will help unmanned ground vehicles get deployed across both battlefield and production lines with low turnaround time. According to the analysts, the global unmanned ground vehicle market was estimated at $2,535.36 million in 2016.

The market is projected to grow at a fast pace with increasing adoption of the unmanned ground vehicles across different commercial and defense applications. In commercial applications, material handling has been one of the most labor intensive tasks in any manufacturing or warehouse facility. They consume both labor and time leading to cost overruns. However, in case of defense and security applications, operations like explosive handling are challenging and life threatening tasks.

The changing dynamics of global economy and geopolitics are acting as obstacles to  the development of both businesses as well as the overall security environment as the countries try to maintain economic growth and political stability. Hence the demand for unmanned ground vehicles is projected to grow over the forecast period.

North America is currently dominating the unmanned ground vehicle market; however, the geographical analysis of this market unveils a great potential for growth in the Asian countries. 

According to analysis, the U.K will grow at a faster rate; comprising a majority of the revenue followed by Germany and France. However, the demand across the Asian economies like China, India, Japan and South Korea will set the pace of the global unmanned ground vehicle market in APAC region.

Key players in the global unmanned ground vehicle market have been following both organic and inorganic strategies to strengthen their businesses and expand their product portfolio. Interestingly, inorganic strategies like acquisitions maintain a fine balance with organic strategies such as product launches owing to demand for products.

Egemin Automation, Swisslog, Seegrid, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, IROBOT, Robo-Team, SMP Robotic etc. are some of the key players in the global unmanned ground vehicle market.
