Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Market by Class (Small, Tactical, Strategic, Special Purpose), Subsystem (Data Link, GCS, and Software), Application (Military, Commercial and Homeland Security), Procurement by Purpose (Procurements, RDT&E, O&M), Payload & Geography - Global Forecast to 2020

The global unmanned aerial vehicles market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.12% from 2015 to 2020. Although, the mature markets (such as the U.S. and China) hold larger shares in the unmanned aerial vehicles market, the European region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 10.29% in the forecast period. North America and Asia-Pacific lead the unmanned aerial vehicles market due to the increase in need of technologically advanced products. Increased military spending and rise in the commercial sector are other factors driving the growth. However, the European and Latin American regions are expected to become the new revenue-generating markets for unmanned aerial vehicle technologies. The unmanned aerial vehicles technologies market in these emerging regions is primarily driven by various economic developments. Moreover, the constant technology upgrades and border security are the other factors fueling the growth in these regions. Due to the aforementioned favorable growth conditions in the emerging countries, a number of players in the unmanned aerial vehicles market infuse investments.

In this report, the global unmanned aerial market has been classified into the following segments namely by class (small, tactical, strategic, special purpose), subsystem (data Link, GCS, software), application (military, commercial and homeland security), procurement by purpose (procurements, RDT&E, O&M) and Payload. The subsystem segment is expected to have the highest CAGR of 10.29% from 2015 to 2020.
