Target Drones Market Research Report, Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Top Key Players, Applications, Types, Product and Industry Analysis 2027

February 15 15:50 2021
The study methodologies used to examine the Target Drones market for the forecast period, 2020 – 2027 further classifies the industry by type, geography, end-use and end-user to add more precision and bring to light factors responsible for augmenting business development.

The growing focus on integrating target drones in military agencies and the extensive financial backing and support to the defense sector, homeland security, and intelligence agencies are the significant factors stimulating the industry’s expansion.

The Global Target Drones Market is expected to be valued at USD 7.26 Billion in 2027 from USD 4.26 Billion in 2019, registering a CAGR of 6.8% through the forecast period. The crucial factors stimulating the market growth are the accelerated adoption of the target drones by the defense and intelligence agencies, more recent use cases of drones in commercial sectors, and technical upgrades in cameras and battery tech.

The augmented increase in the cross-border conflicts, escalating number of upgrades in the preexisting military monitoring and controlling technology, growing incidences of asymmetric warfare, and the inter-country border enmities are projected to further boost the adoption of target drones, thereby bolstering the market growth in the forecast timeframe. The potential of the target drones or target unmanned aerial vehicles to take off and land vertically (VTOL) from or in a small space allows the users to navigate the drone within a smaller area that doesn’t have the prerequisite landing or take-off area. This ability of the drones has boosted their use in missions such as inspections where precise maneuvering and the ability to locate and focus on the single, specific target for an extended period is crucial. This can further fuel the market expansion over the projected timeframe.

The smaller size and availability of different shapes of the drones make them perfect for stealth and confidential military missions. This, coupled with the rapid advancements in micro-camera technology and superior battery tech, is expected to drive the market growth over the projected period. The growing need for advanced technologies and the advent of a diversified portfolio is projected to generate lucrative opportunities for the market players.
