The Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market Anticipated to Reach to $ 70.28 Bn by 2029

Monday 3 June 2019, Amsterdam

Market Research Report Press Release Over the last decade, the Unmanned Ariel Vehicle (UAV) has been witnessing a massive transformation owing to the rise in technologies. A UAV is a part of unmanned aerial system (UAS) that also include a controller on ground, and a communication system between UAV and controller. In the present scenario, UAVs are adopting satellite communication (SATCOM), as there is an increase in the demand for UAVs to operate in beyond visual range of sight (BVLOS) range and secured communication link between UAVs and ground station. SATCOM not only provides wide range of connectivity in BVLOS but also enables a secured communication data link that is mission critical for military operations.

The UAV market is currently witnessing a high growth rate owing to the growing usage of UAVs for beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations, need for transferring large amount of data in real time, and need for secured satellite communication data link for military applications. In the span of three years (2017-2019), the industry has witnessed several product launches and research and development activities from UAV manufacturers and satellite communication service provider.

However, stringent rules and regulations from aviation authorities and vulnerability of satellite communication links from cyber-attacks contribute as major challenges for the market. The advent of new commercial applications in oil and gas and inspection sector is one of the the major factors expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in the next ten years.

According to the latest report, titled 'Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market – Analysis and Forecast (2019-2029)’, in terms of value, the global UAV market with SATCOM capabilities accounted for $25.59 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period 2019-2029.
