The global tactical UAV market size reached US$ 3.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 7.0 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 12.5% during 2023-2028.

Tactile unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) refer to heavier protective devices used to mitigate the risks, detect tanks and armored personnel carriers. Close, short, long, medium-range, endurance and medium altitude long endurance (MALE) are some of the common types of tactile UAVs. The UAV operation includes a mission planning and control site (MPCS) and a launch and recovery site (LRS). Tactile UAVs are widely utilized for detection, classification, identification, disruption, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions. They assist in communicating possible hazards, monitoring locations, notifying threatening conditions, investigating accidents, providing tactile surveillance and monitoring large crowds. As a result, tactile UAVs finds extensive applications across military, commercial, civil and law enforcement activities.

Tactical UAV Market Trends:
The increasing incidences of terrorist activities and cross-border agitation across the globe are driving the growth of the market. Tactile UAVs are also used in light rain conditions to detect, notify threatening conditions and monitor locations. In line with this, the widespread product utilization for live video and snapshots in short-range strategic missions and special purpose integrated remote intelligence terminal (SPIRIT) is augmenting the market growth. Furthermore, various technological advancements, such as the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and hypersonic propulsion with tactical UAV systems to remotely control the device, collect, and implement visual and environmental data, are providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the development of advanced electronic warfare capabilities, such as radio, radar and infrared signals to protect, communicate and sense activities are positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including the increasing demand for high-altitude long-endurance (HALE) unmanned aerial vehicles and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further toward growth.
