Drone Defense System Market Trends

  • Increased spending on military and defense is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for drone defense systems is driven by the rising spending on military infrastructure. Several nations made significant investments to bolster their armed forces, which is anticipated to propel market expansion. According to a survey,  military spending increased by 2.6% from 2019 to USD 1,981 billion in 2020. In 2020, China (USD 252 billion), the United States (USD 778 billion), Russia (61.7 billion), India (72.9 billion), and the United Kingdom were the top five nations with the greatest defense budgets (59.2 billion). Russia, India, China, and Saudi Arabia have invested significantly in acquiring and modernizing the  defense system for the past few years. In the coming years, such causes are anticipated to increase demand for military unmanned aerial vehicles.

The drone defense system market is predicted to expand internationally due to the increasing use of artificial intelligence technology. Many drones have cutting-edge sensors, including LiDAR, sophisticated cameras, GNSS, infrared, and thermal imaging types. Modern unmanned aerial vehicles have various sensors, including air-to-air missiles, communication reconnaissance sensors, and the  mobile communication system (GSM). Modern UAVs can transport many payloads mounted on internal armament bays and big sensors. Commercial applications of artificial intelligence are currently seen in high-altitude military UAV autonomous flying types. These promising market trends for a drone defense system are anticipated to fuel the sector's expansion throughout the projection.

The increasing number of border conflicts between nations over who owns what property and who controls the space between two or more states is predicted to boost product demand. Territorial conflicts have recently arisen in several countries, including India, China, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, Syria, etc. Several nations have increased military spending on real-time surveillance drones to enhance border patrol and situational awareness. For the first time in more than 40 years, the border dispute between China and India became deadly in June 2020. Thousands of Chinese and Indian soldiers have been in a standoff in the Himalayan area of Ladakh since May. The use of drone technology is crucial to resolving their border conflict. Thus, driving the drone defense system market revenue.

Drone Defense System Market Segment Insights

Drone Defense System Insights

The  drone defense system market segmentation, based on system, includes identification detection systems and countermeasure systems. The identification detection systems dominated the market in 2022. The detection systems use various methods to find and identify drones, such as radar reflectance, the appearance of a specific photon and the resulting magnetic field, and auditory and electromagnetic emissions. These initiatives represent rising demand due to the  rise in security breaches. The countermeasure systems segment is anticipated to grow more quickly throughout the projected period. By jamming, spoofing, destroying, or catching the drone, countermeasure technologies are utilized to obstruct its operations. Acoustic sensors, radars for perimeter detection and monitoring, infrared and video systems, and RF spectrum analyzers are some of these technologies.

Drone Defense System End-User Insights

The  drone defense system market segmentation, based on end-user, includes military defense, commercial and homeland security. In 2022, the military sector was the major user of drone defense systems. The fast increase in terrorist and criminal operations worldwide, including illegal border crossings and smuggling, is anticipated to accelerate the deployment of anti-UAV programs among  security agencies.

For instance,August 2021 The Indian Armed Forces inked a contract with Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) to supply the D4 system (D4S), the Defense Research and Development Organization created the first domestic anti-drone system in the nation. The device can identify and jam micro drones using a laser-based process to eliminate the targets. The Indian Navy, Army, and Air Force will use D4S static and mobile variants.

Additionally, the commercial sector is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR. It is anticipated that the adoption of such programs in all of these commercial sectors—including airports, jails, live events, and vital infrastructure—will be made possible by the rising need for counter-UAV technology.

Drone Defense System Regional Insights

By Region, the study provides market insights into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World. In 2022, North America accounted for the biggest market share, and it is anticipated that the region will hold this position of dominance throughout the forecast period. This is partly because of the US Department of Defense's (DoD) growing investments in creating and using counter-drone technology. For instance, the US DoD expects to invest at least USD 636 million in C-UAV system R&D and around USD 75 million in their acquisition through FY 2022.

Further, the major countries studied in the market report are Canada, U.S., France, German, Italy, UK, China, Spain, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.

Europe drone defense system market accounts for the second-largest market share. Throughout the projection period, there is likely to be an increase in demand for drone defense systems and solutions in the region due to the terrorists' increased use of drones for attacks in Europe. The market expansion is driven by the rise in air-based threats and the resulting increase in defense spending by European nations to protect military assets. Russia intended to spend USD 47.55 billion on defense in 2020 and an additional USD 50 billion and USD 51.3 billion in 2021 and 2022, respectively. Further, the German drone defense system market held the largest market share, and the UK drone defense system market was the fastest-growing market in the region.

The Asia-Pacific Drone Defense System Market is estimated to expand at a rapid CAGR from 2023 to 2030. Its expansion can be ascribed to a surge in government spending for the construction of aviation and defense facilities in several nations, primarily China and India. To focus on R&D to fight UAS technology and increase the size of the regional market, many institutions and businesses in the region, including China National Nuclear Corporation, the Beijing Institute of Technology, and Nova Sky, are creating alliances. Also, Asia Pacific is an area with significant political tensions, therefore, nations there always work to maintain their security personnel and systems up to date. Moreover, China’s drone defense system market held the largest market share, and the Indian drone defense system market was the fastest-growing market in the region.
