Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market to Rise at a CAGR of 16.50% During 2022-2027, Aided by the Rising Application of the UAVs in Government and Defence Sector

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry reached a value of USD 27.21 billion in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.50% during 2022-2027 to attain a value of USD 68.04 billion by 2027.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market is driven by the rising application of UAVs in the government and defence sector. Military drones are capable of putting away soldiers from harm’s way in combat and, at the same time, are capable of causing heavy damage to the enemy’s side. UAVs are low in cost and are comparatively cheaper to maintain. In addition to this, UAVs, without a human pilot, can stay in operation for longer hours without fatigue. Hence, the market is likely to grow at a significant pace in the forecast period.

In terms of region, the Asia Pacific is likely to account for a significant share in the market and is anticipated to witness considerable growth in the forecast period. The industry in the region is driven by the significant surge in military expenditure and technological advancements in the air force in India, China, Japan and South Korea. Furthermore, the growing application of drones in disaster management operations in the region is likely to augment the market.

In September 2021, Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) and Martin UAV announced the completion of flight testing of the V-BAT unmanned aircraft system (UAS), with the addition of new features such as GPS-denied navigation and target designation capabilities. Moreover, V-BAT offers a near-zero footprint flexible vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability.
