    1 Global UAV Market Size and Drivers

    1.1 UAV Market Size and Forecast 20152025

    1.1.1 Global UAV market to show positive growth during the forecast period

    UAVs are the next generation of aerial platforms being deployed by defense ministries around the world,

    demand for which has been fuelled by the successful deployment of these systems in combat operations in

    Iraq and Afghanistan. These unmanned platforms are used as force multipliers, performing ISR missions,

    target recognition, damage assessment and electronic warfare Defense ministries around the world are

    investing in this capability to reduce troop casualties. Specifically, mini and VTOL UAVs are affordable and

    capable of performing ISR missions; demand for these cost-effective UAVs is on the rise in countries with low

    spending power. The global market for UAVs in 2015 is estimated at US$XX billion and is expected to grow at

    a CAGR of XX% to reach US$XX billion by 2025. Cumulatively, during the forecast period, the total market for

    UAVs is estimated to be US$XX billion.

    3 Country Analysis UAV Market

    3.1 United States Market Size and Forecast 20152025

    The US comprises the largest market for UAVs in the world and is also the largest manufacturer of various

    unmanned systems globally. Over the years, the US has established itself as a global leader in developing

    advanced unmanned systems, and as a specialist in their subsequent graduation from Intelligence,

    Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to combat warfare, as manifested in its decade long war

    against terrorism. The necessity for continual and superior ISR capability by the armed forces has stimulated

    the US to invest substantially in unmanned air systems (UAS) and related technologies. Presently, the US

    DoD operates more than 7,000 UAVs, mainly in international locations such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and

    Yemen, as well as domestically along the US-Mexico border. A majority of these are small UAVs with a wing

    span of between three and four feet, which are used by ground units for real time geographical or structural

    surveillance. However, over 83% of the total UAV expenditure is on medium and large UAVs that are used in

    more strategic and tactical ISR and combat roles than their smaller counterparts. Evidencing the trend, HALE and UCAV programs are expected to dominate procurement expenditure during the forecast period, as the US

    military looks to induct more UAVs with enhanced endurance and weapon bearing capabilities. In the country,

    the Air Force, Army, Marines, the Navy and the Department of Homeland Security are the prime buyers of

    advanced UAVs, each having their own procurement objectives. As such, US spending on UAVs is projected

    to record sustained activity over the forecast period, with spending in 2015 expected to remain at US$XX

    billion. This level of expenditure is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over 10 years to reach US$XX billion

    by 2025. Cumulative spending by the US on UAV platforms over the forecast period is expected to be US$XX

    billion.
