The Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market size is expected to surpass around US$ 48,886.4 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 15.8% from forecast period 2019 to 2026.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is the type of aircraft that operate without a human pilot on board sometime it also known as drone. The overall operation is carried out by sensors, target designators, offensive ordnance, or electronic transmitters. These have various operation options including remote, fully autonomous or combination working. The overall operation is carried out by sensors, target designators, offensive ordnance, or electronic transmitters. These are available in three different sizes including small, medium and large UAVs. The small UAVs have the maximum gross takeoff weight (MGTW) of 0-20 lbs, normal operating altitude of less than 1200ft above ground level (AGL) in the airspeed of less than 100 knots. The medium UAVs have the Maximum Gross Takeoff Weight (MGTW) of 21-55 lbs, normal operating altitude of less than 3500 ft in the airspeed of less than 250 knots. The large UAVs have the maximum gross takeoff weight (MGTW) up to 1320 lbs, normal operating altitude of less than 18000ft mean sea level (MSL) in the airspeed of less than 250 knots.

Market Dynamics

The increasing usage of UAVs in military applications and civil & commercial applications is primarily driving the market growth. The increasing demand for UAVs in life-threatening military missions and in modern warfare techniques is supporting the market value. In addition to this, increasing demand of UAVs for guarding marine borders and to counter-terrorism is further propelling the market value. Whereas, increasing defense budget in most of the major economies coupled with the increasing usage of UAVs for cargo delivery in military operations is expected to provide potential opportunities throughout the forecast period. Additionally, growing technological advancements in the field of drone payloads are further anticipated to create positive opportunities over the estimated period from 2019 to 2026.

On the other hand, the strict airspace regulations worldwide particularly in the United States where Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is setting regional regulations for the commercial use of a drone, which is likely to hinder market growth throughout the forecast period.

Application demonstration Outlook

Unmanned aerial vehicle has application across various sectors including, military & defense for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), combat operations and battle damage management. Additionally, have usage in retail for product delivery, media & entertainment for photography & film production, precision agriculture, scientific research, remote sensing, and inspection & monitoring. Sequentially, the increasing demand for UAVs in aforementioned sectors is accelerating the market growth.
