Global UAV Flight Training and Simulation Market - Segmented by Product Type, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
UAV is steadily replacing the conventional manned aircraft in various civilian and military fields. However, the market is facing a shortage of skilled and certified UAV pilots, especially in the civilian sector. This aspect is fueling the demand for UAV flight simulators all over the world. UAV flight simulation and training allows the operators to get trained in a real-time scenario. The trainees are provided with the opportunity to operate UAVs in a virtual environment, which is realistic and accurate without any risks and constraints. Moreover, the increasing number of military UAVs is propelling the need for effective training to UAV operators, which, in turn, is spurring the need for UAV flight training and simulation in the coming years.
The market is poised to undergo a rapid expansion during the forecast period, especially in the North American and European markets. The increased use of UAVs, globally, over commercial enterprises has prompted increased R&D in various countries.
The market has been segmented by Geography - into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. Integration and usage of UAVs is the maximum in North America and Europe.
The demand for UAV flight training and simulation equipment will come from developed countries
The United States, Japan, France, and Germany are some countries witnessing high activity in the untapped civilian UAV market. These countries' UAV markets (and the dependent simulation markets) are expected to show a strong growth rate during the forecast period. The Middle East & African region is a nascent market. It could become a viable market for non-recreational civilian purposes, subject to the government reducing regulatory norms and relaxing UAV flight rules.
Major Players: CAE, ISRAEL AEROSPACE INDUSTRIES, SELEX ES AND L-3 LINK SIMULATION & TRAINING COMPANY amongst others.
July 2017: Explotrain LLC, a company which develops battlefield simulation systems for training purposes has developed Explodrone, a realistic drone-based Improvised Explosive Device simulation system for training purposes. The technology is seen as vital for the US led coalition fighting terrorist organizations in the Middle-East which have deployed UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) as a means to deliver IEDs. The product developed by Explotrain will be used by troops for live training, testing and evaluation to deal with the threats posed by drones carrying IEDs.
