The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) market has observed a high growth rate in the recent past. Their declining prices, compact size and ease of operability have led to their widespread adoption across commercial and non-commercial end-users. Furthermore, customer focused innovation in UAV technology and rise in the demand of UAVs for photography, hobbyist, agriculture and surveillance applications are driving the growth in the UAV market. The demand of UAVs has increased significantly in the recent years and the trend is anticipated to continue in the next few years, owing to their cost saving advantage across commercial applications. The rise in their demand across the developing nations and new emerging applications are expected to open several new opportunities for the UAV market in the years to come.

The major class of UAV include small UAVs and large UAVs. Small UAVs include, rotary and fixed wing class UAVs, while large UAVs include strategic, tactical and special purpose UAVs. The major components used in UAV are camera, sensors, high speed data communication system, inertial navigation system and Micro-Electro Mechanical System Attitude and Heading Reference System (MEMS AHRS), autopilots, electronic warfare system, and sense and avoid system among others. Some of the sensors used in UAVs are (Electro-Optical/Infrared) EO/IR sensor, LiDAR, laser spectroscopy, Geo Positioning System (GPS), Meteorological sensors, and (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear) CBRN. These UAVs are used across commercial and non-commercial end-users. Commercial end-users include agriculture, hobbyist, transport, infrastructure, media & entertainment, oil & gas, insurance, telecommunication, and mining.  Non-commercial end users include military and homeland security.

The first working Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) was developed in the 20th century and ever since there have been several significant technological developments such as reduction in weight, improved battery life and increased degree of autonomy in its operation. With the improving technical capabilities, UAVs have witnessed wider adoption for diverse range of applications across commercial and non-commercial end-users.

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) can be defined as an aircraft system that can be controlled using a remote or an on-board computer system. UAVs are a part of Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that consists of UAV, a controller on ground and a communication system between UAV and controller. UAVs are extensively used across commercial and non-commercial end-users. Some of the prime factors behind the rise in the demand of UAVs for commercial and hobbyist applications are their declining price, compact size and improved performance. UAVs are increasingly being adopted across commercial end-users such as agriculture, oil & gas, mining, media and entertainment, among others.

The demand for UAVs is swiftly increasing among different end-users across the globe. The market is driven by number of factors such as rise in their demand across commercial and non-commercial end-users, various consumer-centric technological developments and declining prices, among others. 

The UAV market accounted for a market value of $8.02 billion in 2016 with small UAVs holding the highest share.

Small UAVs hold a large share of revenue in the UAV market. The high share of small UAVs is mainly attributed to their wide range of applications across commercial and non-commercial end-users, low cost and rise in their demand across different geographies. The large UAVs are only used across non-commercial end-users.

North America is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period which is followed by Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the world. The U.S. is the leading country in the UAVs market and it is one of the prominent exporters of UAVs after Israel. The country is home to several UAV manufacturers for both commercial as well as non-commercial end-users. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR with China dominating the market in this region.

Some of the key players in the UAV market include: Aerovironment, Inc., Airbus Group, BAE Systems, CybAero AB, DJI Innovations, Elbit Systems Ltd., General Atomics, Israel Aerospace Industries Limited, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Parrot SA, SAAB Group, 3D Robotics, Thales Group, and The Boeing Company.
