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
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.
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
The Boeing Company
Advanced Radar Technologies
Blighter Surveillance Systems
Manufacturers are focusing their efforts on the development of safer drone defense
technologies, such as usage of a specially designed net and parachute combo to
capture and float drones down. Report Scope Attribute Details Base year for
