Industry Insights

The size of the global anti-drone market was US $ 329.0 million in 2016 and is expected to register a CAGR of 24.1% during the forecast period. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are witnessing increasing adoption across the world and representing a new threat to security systems. Detection and identification of these UAVs have become vital for the maintenance of security. us anti-drone market To learn more about this report, request a free sample copy Various advancements in battery technologies have led to the emergence of powerful drones with significantly larger payload capacities. These advancements in UAV technology are presumed to represent a new security threat for the global population. They could be easily loaded with explosives and other destructive substances and flown into large gatherings of people or could be used to smuggle contraband into prisons. Drones are increasingly being used to spy on homes through backyards and windows. These devices consist of various sensors, which can record audio and video at any given point regardless of time and place. Some of the drones available in the market feature sophisticated functionalities to monitor Wi-Fi signals in devices and manipulate the same. UAVs with integrated cameras have opened a whole new world of opportunities for professionals seeking a way to photograph aerial images. However, a considerable rise in drone adoption across various applications has led to a national threat and rising government concerns worldwide. New UAV mitigation technologies are being developed, restricting drones from flying in unauthorized airspace.

The two major types of mitigation are:

Destructive and Non-Destructive Systems.

Destructive systems accounted for the largest market share in 2016 and are expected to retain their dominance over the forecast period. The segment is further broken down into the laser system, missile effectors, and electronic countermeasures. The electronic countermeasure is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing sub-segment over the forecast period. These measures typically include high-power electromagnetic and microwave weapons, designed to transmit electromagnetic signals. The primary goal of using electronic countermeasures is to prevent successful reception and transmission of data, thereby ceasing overall drone operation.

Defense Type Insights the Two primary defense types are:

Detection and Disruption

Detection and disruption are expected to emerge as the highest revenue generating segment over the forecast period.

Such defense measures are primarily used for identification and detection of UAVs and to undergo neutralization steps to counter drones.

Detection systems involve several phenomenologists to detect and identify drones, including reflectance of UV/Visible/NIR/SWIR/MWIR/LWIR photons, the reflectance of a particular photon, radar reflectance, acoustic emission, electromagnetic emission from onboard radios, Wi-Fi, altimeters, radar, or other communication links, an induced magnetic field. Such defense measures are primarily used for the classification of drones. End- use Insights The various end-use verticals in the anti-drone market include military and defense, commercial, government, and others. Military and defense are anticipated to account for the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Growth in this vertical can be attributed to a sudden increase in illicit and terrorist activities and rising security breaches worldwide. The commercial segment accounted for close to 20.0% of the total market in 2016 and is expected to witness significant growth over the next few years. The increasing need for anti-drone systems at commercial locations, including prisons, airports, critical infrastructure, and live events, has driven the growth of this segment. Several busy airports and hubs across the world are seeking defense measures to protect their airliners and harbored aircraft from drones straying into commercial airspace and risk collisions.

Regional Insights:

North America is likely to emerge as the largest regional segment over the forecast period. Rising adoption of drones in the aerospace and defense sector across U.S is expected to drive the regional market. As a part of a project by the The French government, The Boeing Company, a U.S.-based aircraft major, and Thales Group, a French multinational company, have recently showcased the progress made in developing anti-drone technologies. The Asia Pacific is expected to witness considerable growth over the coming years owing to improving government spending in the development of aerospace and defense infrastructure in countries such as China, India, and Japan. Moreover, most countries in the Asia Pacific are developing economies and as a result, there is a steep increase in the number of commercial places. This is likely to provide several opportunities for surveillance and security, thereby driving the market. Anti-drone Market Share Insights The market is fragmented in nature with no single player accounting for a dominant share.

Key players in the global market include:

Airbus Group SE
