Report Details

This unique Visiongain defence report analyses the evolving and dynamic market for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) exploring in detail its potential from 2010-2020. The report examines current programmes and future prospects for current and new entrants into the flourishing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) market. Armed forces worldwide are embracing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as critical tools for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and in some cases, also for strike missions in particular in counter-insurgency (COIN) operations. Based on Visiongain’s research, global spending in 2009 on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) reached $5.1bn. Over the forecast period of 2010-2020, the cumulative UAV market will total nearly $71bn.

Across the vast range of systems, from those only half a kilogram to those with wings as wide as a jetliner, UAVs are being acquired to enhance military forces. Also in development are even smaller UAVs weighing only several grams up to those designed to stay aloft in the stratosphere for a week at a time or even more. In the civilian UAV market currently led by border security applications, there are also early signs of a civil market that could be potentially vast.

The US dominates the UAV market, as it integrates these systems into all its armed services and at different levels; it has also been using UAVs for border patrol. Although not as big as the US market, there is robust demand worldwide from countries in Europe, particularly the UK, France and Germany. Israel is both a leading exporter of UAVs and a key market. There are also comprehensive plans for UAV purchases by a number of countries in the Pacific such as China, India, Japan and South Korea.

Visiongain reviews the UAV market and provides global market forecasts for five major UAV submarkets:
• Miniature UAVs
• Tactical UAVs
• Endurance UAVs
• Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs)
• Civil UAVs
