Counter UAS Market overview

Counter UAS market size is expected to reach $4.67 billion by the end of 2027, with a CAGR of 25%. The counter UAS is also known as counter-drone Technology, or C-UAS. It is user detect unmanned aircraft. Due to the growing incidence of security breaches by the drones create a huge threat to the civilian and military. This is encouraged the emergence of the Counter UAS market in recent years. More than 200 counter UAS products have been available recently from More than 150 manufacturers across the countries.

The Counter UAS market growth can be seen because of the increasing demand for anti-drone systems. There have been increasing terrorist activities that have propelled the demand for the counter UAS Technology. Counter UAS system can also track and detect other aerial vehicles. Owing to the increasing illegal activities with the drone, the global Counter UAS market is expected to grow more in the forecast period. Counter UAS Technology protects large public spaces, airports, and critical infrastructure such as stadiums, battlefield sites, military installations. Here the electro-optical and infrared sensors are sued to detect the drones.

Increasing research and experiment to strengthen the defense system has further propelled the Counter UAS market growth. Additionally, the increasing concern about potential security threats from unauthorized aircraft Technology will boost this market trend. Also, the increasing attacks through aerial Technology are expected to increase the Counter UAS market trends. The governments around the world are investing highly to make their country and civilian mote secure. As a result, they are looking forward to advanced defense Technology like counter UAS. The demand for the market will grow more in the forecast period owing to the rapid adoption of anti-drone systems.

COVID-19 analysis

An epidemic outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus affected many lives and industries. To control it, governments worldwide imposed strict rules, causing a shutdown to many shops and companies. Many people lost their jobs, and companies lost manpower, causing low production that hampered many businesses. Due to all these factors, the Counter UAS market got negatively impacted by the pandemic. The new projects worldwide are on a halt, leading to a decline in demand for counter UAS. The global manufacturers of counter UAS Technology are struggling to manufacture as the laborers are bound to stay in their homes. In addition, already available counter UAS can’t be transported due to the travel restrictions and disruption in the global supply chain. Apart from that, delayed purchases, personnel restrictions, and restrictions in cross-border trade will decline the demand of the Counter UAS market. The impact of covid-19 on the market is temporary, and once the situation improves, the production and supply of these products are expected to increase. 

  • Market dynamics

Drivers in the Counter UAS market

One of the major drivers in the Counter UAS market is the rising number of security breaches, increasing use of drones, and aerial technology threats. Many terrorist groups are currently using drones for attacks on the civilian. Drones are easily available, and they are affordable; as a result, many people can get access to it, and they can cause potential threats. That is why the demand for this market is rising. The increasing investment in the defense sector by the government is also driving the market. According to the Stockholm international peace research institute, the US was the highest spender in the military, and the country increased its investment from $596 billion in 2015 to $610 billion in 2017. The defense sector using this market to take action against the rising terrorist and unlawful activities globally. As a result, it will drive the growth of this market. Additionally, the rising demand for counter UAS in the commercial sector will also propel the market. Air terminals, live function, prisons, and critical infrastructure is relied on the counter UAS Technology to fight against threats.

  • Opportunities

The counter UAS system can identify micro UAVs from a 1.5-2 kilometer, and for mini UAVs, the range is from 8-10 kilometers. Drone are becoming smaller in size due to the advancement of Technology, and it is harder to track them. But fortunately, counter UAS can detect these small drones, and it will generate opportunities for the Counter UAS market in the forecast period.

  • Restraints 

The counter UAS Technology is new to the market, and the undeveloped regions are not aware of it. The testing is still going on. Apart from that, UAS Technology's counter is highly costly, so not all people can afford it. All these factors hinder the market growth.

  • Challenge

The cost of building a counter UAS system is huge, and the components used in the system, such as radars, lasers, advanced electronics, and radio beams, are also expensive. It can be difficult for the manufacturer to produce in bulk amount due to the high cost. Due to the high cost, these systems can’t be used for commercial purposes, and at public places, that can be a huge challenge for the market. The key players are looking to overcome these challenges and boost the market demand in the forecast period.

Cumulative growth analysis

Even though the counter UAS system is a new concept in the market, it shows substantial growth. The Counter UAS market is expected to register a CAGR of 26.5%, which is huge. The application of counter UAS in so many Industries will boost its demand.
