The anti-UAV defence systems market is likely to grow at a CAGR of 15.3% during the forecast period. In 2016, the market was led by Americas with a share of 60%, followed by APAC with 21%, and EMEA with 19%.
Counter UAV defense systems detect potential UAV threats and find application in industries like military, homeland security, and airports. The system is a combination of radars, infrared cameras, and navigators that recognize drones and limit their risk capabilities. Jamming systems and technologies also play a pivotal role to ensure that signals operating the drone are blocked while other frequencies remain unaffected and operational.
Global Anti UAV Defence System Market 2015 (USD Billion)
Immense growth in demand for UAVs has been observed both in the commercial and military market. They provide the opportunity to safely locate nemeses and track their strategies without causing much damage to the military troops. They allow inspection of activities in a quicker and easier manner and are also cost effective in the commercial sectors such as oil reserves, nuclear plants, agriculture, scientific research, and wildlife. Such advantages of these UAVs are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. In addition, growing episodes of small drones flying in the trajectory of commercial aircraft are contributing the market growth.
The military and defense segment is expected to hold the major share of the market in 2017. The use of drones for border trespassing and smuggling has increased, thereby resulting in border security concern. This is a key factor driving the demand for anti-drone systems in the military and defense vertical.
