Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Drones Market worth 48.88 Billion USD by 2023

According to the new market research report on "Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Drones Market by Type (Fixed Wing, VTOL, STUAS, MALE, HALE), Payload (Up to 150 and 600 kg), Component (Camera, Sensor), Application (Media & Entertainment, Precision Agriculture), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023", the market is expected to grow from USD 17.82 Billion in 2017 to USD 48.88 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 18.32% during the forecast period. The growth of the UAV drones market is driven by factors such as increase in venture funding, rise in demand for drone-generated data in commercial applications, and rapid technological advancements.

Military drones to capture the largest share of UAV drones market in 2017

Military drones are expected to capture the largest share of the UAV drones market in 2017. The military drones are being used successfully by defense agencies to guard their borders, to enforce law as well as for combat missions. For example, in September 2017, the US military launched six drone strikes against Islamic State positions in Libya. The adoption of military drones by various countries worldwide for military applications such as border security and spying is the key factor driving the growth of the military drones market.

Sensors component estimated to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period

Sensors are being used as payloads in UAVs for many commercial and military applications. Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) and laser sensors in military drones are used for marking targets, guiding munitions, missile defense, electro-optical countermeasures, and in inertial navigation systems, among others. The growing demand for sensors to be used in such vital military applications is the key factor driving the growth of the market for sensors.

North America expected to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period

The market for commercial drones in North America is expected to grow exponentially owing to the release of the Part 107 rule by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the US in August 2016. UAVs have been used by the countries in North America for military and defense applications; currently, drones are also adopted for various commercial applications such as media and entertainment, precision agriculture, law enforcement, inspection, and surveys. In Canada, UAVs have been used in diverse environments and high-risk roles such as atmospheric research, including weather and atmospheric gas sampling, and oceanographic research.

The current market is dominated by the players such as Northrop Grumman (US), DJI (China), General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (US), Parrot (France), Thales (France), 3DR (US), Boeing (US), PrecisionHawk (US), Lockheed Martin (US), Textron (US), and AeroVironment (US).

    USAF Inches Closer To KC-46 Vision System Decision

    Lee Hudson The head of the U.S. Air Force's mobility fleet needs more data from Boeing on the KC-46 Remote Vision System (RVS) upgrade plan to determine if an interim fix is worth taking the maintenance downtime. Boeing is upgrading the RVS to version 1.5, which is now renamed the enhanced RVS that the company promises will deliver sharper imaging, Air Mobility Command chief Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost told reporters Sept. 14. “But the proof is in the pudding when it comes to whether or not it actually would provide additional operational capability or additional safety,” she said. Van Ovost and the head of the Pentagon's operational test and evaluation office met with Boeing on Sept. 4 for KC-46 briefings. Toward the end of September, Van Ovost expects a briefing on why the Pentagon should implement enhanced RVS at no cost to the Air Force. Air Force Research Laboratory personnel will participate in the discussion on whether the service should pursue enhanced RVS or wait until 2.0 comes online, she said. Boeing began flight testing the enhanced RVS in June, which includes numerous software changes and a few hardware updates. If the government opts not to deploy the upgrade, the fixes identified for RVS 1.5 will flow into the 2.0 version that is slated for fielding in the second half of 2023. “If the Air Force decides to deploy initial RVS enhancements we could provide aircraft with those during the second half of 2021 (calendar year),” Mike Hafer, KC-46 global sales and marketing at Boeing, said in a Sept. 15 statement. “The full suite of state-of-the-art enhancements, commonly known as RVS 2.0, should be installed in tankers we deliver starting in late 2023 or early in 2024.” https://aviationweek.com/shows-events/afa-air-space-cyber-conference/usaf-inches-closer-kc-46-vision-system-decision
