“Airborne surveillance market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% between 2017 and 2023”
The airborne surveillance market is expected to be worth USD 4.42 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 5.81 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. Rapid technological advancements, Internet of Things (IoT), amendments in laws, the growing demand for UAVs in commercial application, and the availability of low-cost UAVs are some of the driving factors for the airborne surveillance market, while air traffic management poses a challenge for this market.

“Airborne surveillance market for unmanned system is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
Major reason behind the growth of unmanned systems is because of its lower cost, rapid technological advancements, and relaxation in regulations in different countries. This has given rise to the use of UAVs in the commercial sector. Increased funding from various investors and players motivate the companies to manufacture innovative solutions for the UAV industry, creating various opportunities in the market.

“Airborne surveillance market for the commercial sector to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period”
Relaxation in laws is one of the major driving factors for the growth of commercial application. In recent years, many amendments in laws and regulations for drone usage have been observed, which have motivated end-users to increase the use of drones. For instance, the flight altitude of drones has been increased from 100 feet to 400 feet, and the flight speed has been modified from 80 mph to 100 mph by FAA (US); the Government of Canada has made major amendments in the existing laws such as increasing the weight of drones from 250 g to 1 kg.

“Airborne surveillance market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023”
China, Japan, South Korea, and India play a major role in APAC for the airborne surveillance market. China, being an electronics manufacturing hub, is rapidly increasing the manufacturing of drones in the country. The commercial market for drones in China mainly focuses on applications such as agriculture, surveillance, mapping, weather monitoring, and others.
