The MALE (medium-altitude, long-endurance) and HALE (high-altitude long-endurance) UAV's have versatile mission capabilities that enable them to be used for various applications including Combat Strike and ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance) missions. Due to their technological superiority, UAV's have become increasingly popular, leading to more spending on UAV programmes and procurement. Their successful deployment in contested warzones has revolutionized military operations in battle areas and thus increased the demand for these platforms. Furthermore, the availability of affordable UAV's has enabled smaller economies to strengthen their autonomous air power without risking human assets by turning to MALE & HALE UAV's.

The study “MALE & HALE UAV’s - Market and Technology Forecast to 2031” examines, analyses, and predicts the evolution of MALE & HALE UAV technologies, markets, and outlays (expenditures) over the next 8 years – 2024-2031 in the aerospace industry. It also examines markets geographically, focusing on the top 95% of global markets, in the North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America.
