While it is impossible to predict the exact economic impact of the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, analysts believe that it will have significant negative consequences for the global economy. Most major economies are expected to lose at least 2.9 percent of their GDP by 2020 if the virus becomes a global pandemic, according to early projections. This prediction has already been revised to a 3.4 percent drop in GDP. To put this figure in context, global GDP is expected to reach about 84.54 trillion dollars in 2020, implying that a 4.5 percent decline in economic growth would result in nearly 2.96 trillion dollars in lost economic output.
The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is mostly due to a drop in demand, which means that fewer people are ready to buy the commodities and services that are available in the global economy. This dynamic was readily visible in businesses that were highly impacted, such as travel and tourism. Countries have imposed travel restrictions to slow the spread of the virus, and many people have been unable to book flights for vacations or business trips. Airlines lost expected revenue due to the decrease in customer demand, and as a result, they had to cut costs by lowering the number of flights they performed.
The expanding necessity of Unmanned Traffic Management answers for coordinate independent elevated vehicles in the business airspace is another factor impacting the development of this Unmanned Traffic Management market. Unmanned Traffic Management is expected to grow at an effective rate in the future forecasted period due to high demand in this market. The major reason for the increase of the global market revenue is the driver like the requirement of UTM Solutions to Integrate Autonomous Aerial Vehicles into Commercial Airspace and the rising Traffic Congestion. These drivers help the major players enhance their growth and development in the market for Unmanned Traffic Management. On the other hand, integration of 5G cellular network is likely to provide a lucrative opportunity over the forecast duration for the market players involved.
During the projected period, it is anticipated that rising public and private company investments in the creation of autonomous traffic management systems will fuel market expansion. For instance, Terra Drone Corporation raised a B-series capital of $70 million (8 billion Japanese yen) in March 2022 to hasten the development of Unmanned Traffic Management, or UTM, an air traffic control system for unmanned aircraft.
Additionally, it is anticipated that the growth of the unmanned traffic management market would be fueled by the innovations of unmanned traffic systems and partnerships between private and public market participants to improve the performance and efficiency of UTM.
For instance, PrecisionHawk, Inc. created Automated Unmanned Air Traffic Control System in August 2020, which enables drone and manned aircraft collision avoidance. Additionally, in December 2020, Altitude Angle collaborated with A-techSYN, a leading producer of next-generation Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and Inmarsat, the market leader in worldwide mobile satellite communications, to jointly develop the Pop-Up UTM platform. Additionally, in June 2019, Terra Drone Corporation and Unifly, a well-known provider of drone traffic management, collaborated. In accordance with this partnership, Terra Drone Corporation successfully showed Taiwanese government officials an unmanned traffic management (UTM) system that was created in conjunction with Unifly.
The global market for Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) has witnessed significant growth over the forecast period due to the growing digital content. There are several domestic, regional, and global players operating in the Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) market who continuously strive to gain a significant share of the overall market.

As it has several advantages over current technology, 5G mobile cellular network usage is rapidly rising in a number of end-use industries. Additionally, this technology helps to improve drone industrial operations. The industry is searching for a communications network that has been approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and has the expanded functionality needed for secure commercial drone operations. Scalable, financially feasible drone operations could be unlocked by technologies of the fifth generation.
The major market participants are sure that their tactics will determine if 5G is an appropriate solution for the unmanned aircraft traffic management sector. Governor Hochul stated in September 2021 that New York would host the nation's first 5G test network for unmanned aircraft in a 50-mile drone corridor. With an investment of USD 70 million, this aids New York in maintaining its position as a global leader in unmanned aircraft systems.

Globally, the Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) market has been categorized into four different regions—North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. North America accounted for the largest market share, with a market value of USD 271.02 Million in 2020; it is expected to register a CAGR of 21.35% during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific was the second-largest market in 2020, valued at USD 204.38 Million; it is projected to register CAGR of 24.34%.
Majority of the North American market is driven from the United States. Drones have quickly evolved into one of the military's main weapons as US counterterrorism policy has pushed toward tactics that are more covert, more destructive, and farther away from the fight. Both the US military and the CIA have deployed drones in conflict zones to conduct conventional fighting as well as targeted killings of people who have been accused of terrorism, both inside and outside of active battle zones.
According to the Bard College Center for the Study of the Drone, the Department of Defense proposed $9.39 billion for drones and related technology in the fiscal year 2019 budget. The Stimson Center estimated that the administration's request for drone procurement, research, development, testing, and assessment would cost $3.4 billion. As a result of the growing usage of drones, the US is predicted to have a strong need for unmanned traffic control systems.
After passing the U-space legislative package, Europe is now well on its way to establishing drone eco-systems across the whole continent. The U-space package, which consists of three regulations, was approved by the European Commission in April 2021. It sets up the conditions for both manned and unmanned aircraft to fly safely in the U-space region of the atmosphere. In particular, in crowded, low-level airspace (below 120m), and when out of sight, the laws add new services for drone operators, enabling them to conduct more complicated and distant activities.
Member States of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) member states are now tasked with putting U-space regulatory practices into place so drone operators can expand their operations in a unified European market. Some countries have already started the process, including Poland, Belgium, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Switzerland, but many more are still waiting for the legislation to be passed before launching their U-space implementation plans.
