Visiongain Publishes Ground Control Station Market Report to 2031

24 March 2021

Visiongain has published a new report on Ground Control Station Market Report to 2031: Forecasts by Type (Mobile and Portable) by Platform (Airborne, Land, and Marine) By System (Hardware and Software). PLUS COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios.

Global Ground Control Station market was valued at US$ xx billion in xx and is projected to reach at a market value of US$ xx billion by 2031.

COVID-19 Impact on Ground Control Station Market
The world underestimated the economic aspects of COVID-19, the pandemic brought about by a novel strain of coronavirus that originated in late 2019. Business development in defence is quite different as that of several ventures, recognized by high stakes, extended commitment, long exchange periods, extensive testing and assessment, and government-to-government relations. The situation for defence equipment industry doesn't look suitable for growth right now. The decline in the business scenario of defence sector is anticipated to directly impact the growth of global ground control station market over the forecast timeframe.

Market Drivers

Increasing Number of UAVs
Over the past few years, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been witnessing rapid growth in the United States and also around the world. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is growing rapidly across many civil application domains such as real-time monitoring, remote sensing, delivery of goods, precision agriculture, and civil infrastructure inspection, and providing wireless coverage. Smart UAVs are expected to be the next big transformation in UAV technology; promising to offer new opportunities across different applications. These factors are anticipated to propel the growth of ground control station market, as it controls the operations of UAVs.

Growing Demand for Lightweight and Portable Ground Control Stations for Warfare Operations
The portable GCS (Ground Control Station) is an adjustable solution for monitoring unmanned aerial vehicles and equipment. By means of modular electronics compartment (MEC), application-specific hardware can be swiftly installed. This adaptability permits the GCS to be configured to regulate unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV), bomb disposal robots, remotely operated vehicles (ROV), and other robotic devices. The GCS can also be customized to control and monitor measurement and sensing equipment. These factors drive the growth of GCS market globally.

Market Opportunities

Automation of Ground Control Stations
As the level of automation in unmanned aerial systems (UAS) increases, the mission planning relevance rises. The Unmanned Aerial Systems applications are broadly used in different areas both for civil and military and uses. A main factor that contributes for this success is the increase of the UAS level of automation. The automation of ground control station improves the operative performances and the protection of unmanned systems. This also leads in a shift in the operator’s role from a remote pilot of the vehicle to its supervisor.

Miniaturization of Ground Control Stations
Miniaturized ground control stations replace standard aircraft ground maintenance and control stations with a self-contained, compact, and cost-effective portable unit. The progress on miniaturization technologies, comprising new sensors, embedded control systems, and communication systems have furthered the development of many new small and fairly low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). This is expected to boost the global ground control station market over the forecast timeframe.

Competitive Landscape
This market is highly competitive and fragmented due to the presence of several established players who intensely compete to expand their market shares. Some of the companies profiled in the report include Aerodrones, AL Marakeb, Asseco Poland, Elbit Systems, General Dynamics, L3 Technologies, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Robosys Automation, and Textron Systems, among others.
• On December 18, 2019 Lockheed Martin Canada CDL Systems signed a memorandum of understanding with supplier of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Canadian UAVs, to provide an unmanned traffic management solution.
• In January 2019, Raytheon Company received a contract to maintain and modernise both hardware and software of the ground control systems and onboard sensors used by the US Air Force (USAF) fleet of RQ-4 Global Hawk remotely piloted aircraft.
