Global UAV Payload and Subsystems Market - Analysis of Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Global UAV Payload and Subsystems Market - Analysis of Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The global UAV payload and subsystems market is expected to grow atregister a CAGR of 9.64%, to

reach USD 14.26 billion by the year 2023during the forecast period. UAVs are replacing regular

manned aircraft for certain missions and combat operations. Rising operational demands are

compelling manufacturers to push the boundaries on UAV capabilities, thereby, increasing the focus

on this market. The market demand would be significantly driven by increased UAV procurement

from several countries across the world. Several improvement in the areas of persistent surveillance

systems, electronic countermeasures, and improvement in communications, along with increase in

search and rescue operations with the help of UAVs would also help to create new opportunities for

UAV payloads. UAV payloads consists of sensors, communication systems, and electronics to

collect and manage the data generated. C4I has the highest market share of payload and

subsystems, and would continue to hold this position by the end of forecast period. However, the

market for electro optic payloads is expected to have the highest growth rate, due to high price of

optical fiber.

Market Dynamics

Improvements in technology have led to the rapid growth of UAVs market, driving the growth of UAV

payload subsystems. Increase in the demand for UAVs has brought about significant advancements

in processor technology which have enabled significant performance gains in ISR payloads. The

increase in capability improvements has also helped to bring about a standardized system-level

architecture which helps to reduce cost and complexity. The increase in UAV technologies has led to

an widespread increase in the demand of commercial UAVs, which are mainly being used for

surveying, scanning, aerial photography, 3D mapping, oil and & gas pipeline monitoring, wind turbine

blade inspection, real estate survey, and many other similar applications.

Though there are several technological advancements which are enhancing ISR technology and

onboard UAV platforms, the unmanned vehicles (UAVs) face significant challenges in terms of size,

weight, and power (SWaP). Thereby, the high-performance processing elements used in the modern

UAVs require hardware platforms, which can provide significant support to the additional size and

heat that these UAVs generate. 3U boards are comprehensively used in a number of UAVs. However,

these boards do not have the adequate space to perform the complex processing, the memory

arrays and all the other I/O and high-speed interfaces. Thereby, with the integration of advanced

packages in the board it generates significant amount of heat in the 3U boards and even leads to its
