The Military Robotics Market - Key Drivers, Trends and New Developments
Global Military Robots market is dominated by North America, with the US being the largest defense spender in the sector. North American countries are to allocate US$244.4 Billion on capital expenditure in 2016. Over the period 2016-2026, capital expenditure is expected to slightly increase, at a CAGR of 0.06%, to reach US$245.1 Billion by 2026. Europe trails North America as the second-largest market, offering a potentially attractive investment opportunity for western firms.
The Middle East is a promising market for military Robotics, propelled by the growing demand for Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) to counter security threats such as terrorism, illegal infiltration, drug trafficking, and border encroachments. Countries in the Latin American and African regions are slowly realizing the advantages of robots as force multipliers and are initiating procurement programs, which are expected to be in full force over the future.
The global economic slowdown has reduced military expenditure worldwide; as a consequence, a significant number of countries are establishing joint projects in order to share R&D costs. Partnerships between defense firms have also increased, as a significant number of countries are investing in the development of their domestic robotics industries by establishing strategic alliances and technology-transfer agreements with global manufacturers.
The cumulative expenditure of global combined military UAV and UGV market is US$120.4 Billion during the period 2016-2026. The demand for UAVs is expected to be driven by internal and external security threats, territorial disputes, and modernization initiatives undertaken by Armed Forces across the world.
Military robots have proved to be exceedingly useful during peacekeeping missions and the ongoing global war on terror, finding applications across ISR and combat roles. Furthermore, enhanced capabilities in areas such as endurance, data processing, and communications have broadened role of unmanned systems in both defense and intelligence roles. Security threats posed by cross-border insurgents, illegal immigrants, pirates, hostile nations and terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda and Jemaah Islamiah (JI) have created a need for defense systems capable of carrying out surveillance and intelligence gathering missions.
