Report ID: 157230 3300 Machinery & Equipment 377 244 Pages 4.7 (50)

Market Overview:

The global drone transponders market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for drones across various applications, such as civil and military applications. Additionally, the increasing adoption of drones for commercial purposes is also contributing to the growth of this market. The global drone transponders market by type is segmented into ADS-B compatible and ADS-B non-compatible transponders. The ADS-B compatible segment is expected to hold a larger share in terms of revenue in 2018, owing to its advantages over other types of transponders available in the market. These advantages include low installation and maintenance costs, longer battery life, and better performance under difficult weather conditions as compared with other types of transponders available in the market. .

Global Drone Transponders Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A drone transponder is a device that allows a drone to identify itself to other aircraft and control systems. The use of transponders helps ensure safe separation between aircraft, and also helps air traffic controllers keep track of drones in their airspace.

ADS-B Compatible:

ADSB compatible is short for Air-to-Ground compatible. It's a radio frequency that allows aircraft to communicate with air traffic control and each other. The ADS-B system is an optional addition to the satellite communication system, which enables aircraft to transmit its position and other relevant information regarding its flight path.

The primary function of ADS-B in drones is for collision avoidance between drone and pilot as well as between two nearby drones.

ADS-B Non-Compatible:

ADSB Non-Compatible is a term used for the equipment that can receive ADS-B signals but are not compatible to the required standards set by regulatory authorities. It includes devices such as generic transponders, Mode S/ADS-B receivers and non-Mode S Transponders.

The major factor responsible for this state of affairs is due to lack of common standards among manufacturers.

Application Insights:

The military application segment led the market and accounted for more than 63.0% share of the global revenue in 2017. The growing use of drones as weapons to carry out attacks has increased government spending on anti-drone systems, which is expected to drive demand over the forecast period. Furthermore, a rise in terrorist activities across various regions has resulted in an increase in drone surveillance programs, which further drives demand for transponders among military applications.

Civil applications are anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing adoption by commercial companies for aerial filming or photography purposes and monitoring infrastructure development projects at high altitudes without causing any interference with wireless networks below that altitude. Moreover, civil aviation authorities have issued compulsory equipment regulations mandating all drones must be equipped with an ADS-B receiver so they can comply with flight rules and avoid mid-air collision while operating within controlled airspace near airports or major cities around the world.

Regional Analysis:

North America accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period, with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030. This growth can be attributed to various factors such as increasing drone-related accidents and crimes, growing adoption of drones by businesses for commercial purposes, and implementation of new regulations regarding their operations. Moreover, rising demand for UAVs by law enforcement agencies is anticipated to drive regional market growth over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast years owing to increasing government initiatives pertaining towards drone technology development coupled with rising awareness among end users regarding its benefits in terms of enhanced safety & security measures at airports as well as within countries’ borders (Bennett et al., 2016). Furthermore, increased spending on defense sector by governments across Asian countries including China and India are likely contribute significantly towards industry expansion (Krishna et al., 2016).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for drones in commercial and military applications
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of drone transponders among end-users
  • Technological advancements in drone transponder systems
  • Growing number of regulatory approvals for drones across different geographies
  • Proliferation of online stores that offer drones and drone transponder systems
