The increased usage of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has become topical but, regardless of the debates related to ethics and accountability, the importance of UAS will continue to strengthen. Though many nations have strong unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) aspirations, availability of funds reflects the actual market revenue. This Frost & Sullivan research study analyses the impact of the changing patterns in defence spending and assesses the UAS market in the twenty countries with the highest military expenditures. An assessment is made on individual procurement programs in each of the countries, and the forecast is based on raw data collected from extensive primary and secondary research.
The spending by the United States for mid- and large-sized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) will decrease from $5.09 billion in 2011 to $2.35 billion in 2020.
