Global Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) Market 2015-2019

About UGVs

UGVs are majorly used in the Defense sector for examining the terrain, supplying ammunition to the soldiers during a combat situation, carrying out rescue operations during disasters, and for detecting explosives. They are used in the areas and situations that are hazardous and dangerous to humans. They have sensors to observe the environment and terrain and provide data and images of the area. They navigate either autonomously or as per the instructions of the human operator. The growing usage of UGVs in the Commercial sector has led to an increase demand for them.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global UGV market to grow at a CAGR of 31.34 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global UGV Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global UGV Market: Cobham plc, General Dynamics Corp., iRobot Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and QinetiQ Group plc

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AB Precision (Poole), Applied Geo Technologies, Aselsan, BAE Systems, Dok-Ing, ECA Group, G-NIUS Unmanned Ground Systems, MacroUSA, Nexter Group, O.D.F Optronics Ltd., Oshkosh Defense, Oto Melara, RE2 Inc., ReconRobotics, Roboteam, RUAG Defense and Singapore Technologies Engineering

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increased usage of LWIR uncooled cameras is one of the key trends emerging in the market. These vehicles are being developed for both military and commercial purposes to perform tasks in difficult situations. The ability to perform autonomous navigation at any time requires either high-quality video cameras or line-of-sight visual observation.”

According to the report, the usefulness of UGV in critical situations has boosted their demand for non-defense applications as well. As a result of the growing demand and popularity of UGV in the Commercial sector, manufacturers are enhancing the capabilities and technologies of the vehicles.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges that UGV face is energy limits, in terms of both supply (power to systems such as radars or communication links) and durability of batteries. Functions of UGV are constrained by low power provided by conventional batteries, which reduce their operational time, thus hindering their operations.
