Market Overview:

The global UAV platform market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for UAV platforms for commercial and military applications. The global UAV platform market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the global UAV platform market is segmented into up to 5 kg payload type, up to 10 kg payload type, up to 20 kg payload type, and others. Up to 5 kg payload types are expected dominate in terms of revenue share during the forecast period owing their low cost and easy deployment options. However, with technological advancements in this domain over time higher weight carrying capacity platforms are being developed which would witness high adoption rates over time. On the basis of application,the global UAV platform market is segmented into fixed wing drone aircrafts (FWDA), unmanned helicopter (UH), multi-rotor drones (MRD), and others segments including hybrid systems). FWDA dominates in terms of revenue share followed by MRDs due their growing demand from commercial sectors such as agriculture & forestry mapping & surveying; inspection; security & surveillance; package delivery etc., whereas Unmanned Helicopters are used extensively by militaries across different regions for various missions such as ISR operations; convoy protection etc,.

Global UAV Platform Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A UAV platform is a vehicle that provides a stable base for mounting and launching an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. The importance of UAV platforms lies in their ability to provide a stable launch and recovery environment for UAVs, which in turn allows for more accurate and effective aerial reconnaissance or strike missions.

Up to 5 kg Payload Type:

Up to 5 kg payload type is used for UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) platform. It's a generic term used for various types of drones that weigh up to 5 kg without the need of being fully equipped with accessories like landing gear and so on. Payload weight can be changed as per application requirements using drone’s transformation kit, which is an add-on device available in the market.

UAVs are widely adopted by commercial companies.

Up to 10 kg Payload Type:

Up to 10 kg payload type is used in UAV platform for various applications such as scientific research, surveillance & mapping, disaster management and other commercial activities. It can be used for multiple purposes due to its lightweight feature. Payload type is an essential component of any UAV as it helps in the flight control and provides information about the drone’s status including battery life and remaining fuel among others through a wireless connection with the ground station.

Application Insights:

Fixed-wing UAV accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for advanced UAVs with higher payload capacity, improved flight performance, longer range, and greater speed in military applications.

The demand for small drones has been rising steadily since 2015 owing to their affordability compared with other aircraft types available in the market. Moreover, governments are taking initiatives such as relaxing rules regarding small drones operation which will further propel industry growth over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to increasing investments by governments for UAV technology and growing adoption by law enforcement agencies for monitoring purposes. Moreover, presence of prominent players such as General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc.; Insitu; and Northrop Grumman Corporation is also expected to drive regional growth.

The Asia Pacific region accounted for a significant share in the global market due to rising demand from countries such as China, India, South Korea, Japan among others. Increasing use cases such as crop dusting, forest fire detection/suppression are further anticipated to propel regional growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, rise in political instability coupled with need for surveillance & security measures is driving demand across this region significantly impacting overall industry growth positively.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for UAVs for commercial and military applications
  • Growing popularity of drones among hobbyists and enthusiasts
  • Proliferation of low-cost UAV platforms and components
  • Advances in drone technology and innovation
  • Rising demand for unmanned aerial services
