Global UAV Market Anticipated to Reach $21.47 Billion by 2021
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.
