Anti-Drone Market Overview

Anti-drone market Size is Anticipated to Reach a USD 2.4 billion and at a CAGR of 25% by 2020 to 2030

Drone technological improvements, as well as the development of small- and medium-sized anti-drones capable of identifying micro-UAVs ranging in range from 1.5 to 2 kilometres, present potential for manufacturers. The anti-drone market will be driven by rising market demand for equipment equipped with radar, RF scanners, and electro-optical infrared for payload detection. Rapid use of anti-drone technology for professional and recreational purposes, which has escalated public and government concerns about airborne attacks, is propelling the business.

Rising government support and deployment of anti-drone technologies around the world is also fueling the sector. The design of anti-drone systems has been heavily impacted by airborne threats. To meet the growing demand for security, several public safety agencies and commercial foundations around the world are increasingly deploying anti-drone technologies. Companies that provide anti-drone systems to armies are extensively investing in it by developing novel methods to combat the threat posed by anti-drone systems in order to defend safety and security from terrorists. The counter-UAV sector is growing in terms of technology.

However, the use of anti-drone jammers or uncontrolled UAS detection and countermeasure deployments are likely to cause electromagnetic and radio frequency (RF) interference, particularly at airports, affecting flight safety and air traffic management challenges.

COVID 19 Analysis

The sudden outbreak and the obnoxious spread of the global COVID-19 have affected the anti-drone market. Considering the inputs that are pouring in from various industry experts belonging to different stages of the anti-drone value chain that are inclusive of OEM, suppliers, other end-users, and distributors, as well as, after consulting stages of financial releases of different companies in the anti-drone ecosystem for the first and second quarters of 2020, it has further, been estimated that the growing size of the anti-drone market might witness a decline of 1-3% in the pandemic year of 2020. 

This is because of the customer personnel restrictions, followed by the delayed purchases, disruptions in the supply chain that is coupled with restrictions on cross-border trade resulting in various kinds of delays in the completion of raw materials and component consignments, particularly from the Chinese region. The anti-drone market has seen a slow degree of procurement of anti-drone systems from both the European and the Middle East regions due to the outbreak of the COVID-19. The growing demand for anti-drone systems and associated technologies is projected to grow at a consistent pace during the post-COVID-19 period, as the global governments continue to strengthen their defense capabilities for conducting the processes like tackling the uncertain geopolitical struggles and tensions such as the India-China standoff or the dispute in the South China Sea that has been laying for a large time.

 The rising investments and expansion in the product portfolio are likely to help the anti-drone market size during the ongoing forecast period that will be ending in 2027.

Market Dynamics


With the increase in the number of use of drones, there has been a rise in the number of security breaches by unidentified drones at places like critical infrastructure and public places has also, increased. There has been a spur in the demand for countermeasures. The potential culprits of the anti-drone market include hobbyists, antinuclear groups, business competitors, and some terrorist organizations. Currently, there are drones that have become popular and readily available owing to their affordability. Commercial organizations make use of drones for purposes like express parcel delivery, while the military groups make use of them for attacking the suspected terrorists. In the past few years, there has been a rapid growth recorded in the use of all types of UAVs. In the US region, reports regarding unmanned aircraft sightings from pilots, citizens, and law enforcement have increased consistently since 2018.


The Anti-drone market technology is relatively new in the propelling market, and hence, the technologies are used to manufacture the counter-UAV systems that are undergoing rigorous research and development techniques. Several market players of the market are introducing these new market technologies are planning to patent them. Also, the cost that has been incurred for the research and development is quite high owing to the rising factors like the use of lasers and other costly technologies. Hence, the medium and small-sized players cannot afford the development and deployment of anti-drone systems due to the rising need for high initial investment.

Technology Analysis

The Anti-drone market by technology has systems that are available today and can identify the micro-UAVs ranging from 1.5 to 2 kilometers, while for mini-UAVs, the range lies from 8 to 10 kilometers. For instance, in 2015, there were three British companies—Blighters Surveillance Systems, Chess Dynamics, and Enterprise Control Systems— that launched the anti-UAV defense system that is known for their ability to detect, identify, and further, disrupt the micro-UAVs up to a range of 2 kilometers and mini-UAVs up to a range of 8 kilometers. Drones are emerging and becoming smaller in size owing to the advancing developments and drone technologies. Therefore, there has been a constant use of small drones that has increased dramatically over the years, and in the upcoming time, as a part of the pandemic year that will be ending in 2028. Hence, there are several companies that are engaged in manufacturing compact counter-drone systems that will improve the anti-drone market size.
