Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV/DRONES) Market Opportunities: Focus on Application, Components & Region – 2015 to 2020

Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV/DRONES) Market Opportunities: Focus on Application, Components & Region – 2015 to 2020

The market growth of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), commonly called drones, is propelled by an increasing demand in the commercial and military sectors. A reduction in the number of associated operational risks, along with innovative solutions, has created an increase in demand for UAVs in performing multifarious operations without extensive human involvement.

The unmanned aerial vehicle market development is moved by expanding interest for the UAVs in the Commercial and military segments. It has been estimated that annual spending on them around the world will increase by almost 70% to $11.95 billion by 2020 with a CAGR of 8.41% from 2015 to 2020

Recently, in spite of the growth hindrance, to some extent, of UAVs due to a reduction in defense budgets of the US, France and Germany, the drone’s combative role - especially in the US, Middle-East and Asia-Pacific regions - has significantly boosted its demand. This had also led to an ever-growing demand for UAVs across commercial applications.

The BIS report tries to answer various aspects of the UAV market; factors driving the UAV market, threats that can possibly slow down the market growth and the present growth opportunities that are going to shape the market expansion of UAVs. The research incorporates Porter’s Five Force Model for in-depth analysis of the UAV market, along with an assessment of the factors governing it. The report is based on a comprehensive value chain, giving a clear understanding of the channels of market penetration and their involvement in the overall cycle of production and consumption of UAVs

The answers to the following key questions can be found in the report:

  • How will the key market players leverage on key developments such as Mergers and Acquisitions, Partnerships, and Product Launch among others?
  • Which factors will be driving the market through the forecast period?
  • What factors are currently challenging the UAV industry?
  • Which compliances and certifications are necessary to make a product acceptable?
  • Which country will lead the global UAV market by the end of the forecast period?
  • Who are the key players in the UAV market?
  • What is the trend of different end-use verticals?
  • What is the regional acceptance trend of the UAV devices and services?
Base year: 2014
Estimation and Forecast through 2015 to 2020

Market Segmentation:
  • Application verticals: categorized into three major categories, viz. military, commercial and agriculture
  • UAV sub-systems : UAV Device Components and UAV Sub-Station Components
  • Geographical segmentation : North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the World (ROW)


Currently, most geographical regions are trying to formulate, expand or streamline the regulatory structure of UAV usage, especially, after wide scale development of the commercial UAV market and small UAVs. For instance, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) came up with a new regulatory structure for UAV usage in the U.S. Several European nations have similar proposals with the growing demand of the UAV market. This will serve as a major boost to the growth of the UAV market. The UAV market will continue to evolve and become an increasingly global market with increased usage of drones across existing and new geographical regions.
