Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone Market)

The increase in the use of commercial drones and incidents has resulted in the necessity for counter UAV technology or anti-drone systems which neutralize rogue drones. Counter-drone technology, also known as C-UAS, counter-UAS, or C-UAS technology, refers to a type of device used to locate, fix, track, identify, and neutralize unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Some of the anti-drone systems use sensors to detect UAVs, identify threats using electro-optical/infrared imagery and RF emissions, and neutralize the threat posed by unidentified UAVs.

Counter-UAVs are earning interest and popularity among several countries. However, in terms of bulk adoption and usage, they are still in an initial stage, and countries need to spend on counter-UAS technology to penetrate through certain areas where the industry has been deficient. Thus, in this section, various counter-UAS programs that countries are spending on and are expected to come up in the future are analyzed.

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market Overview

The unmanned industry has been rapidly growing owing to significant developments such as considerable reduction in size, weight, and cost, enhanced battery life, and increased degree of autonomy in its operation.

Additionally, drones have been adopted across the globe for various applications such as infrastructure, logistics and transport, insurance, media and entertainment, telecommunication, agriculture, mining, oil and gas, and defense.

Currently, there are about one million drones registered with FAA, and the number is increasing day by day. With a huge number of drones in the air, efficient detection systems can play a great role in alleviating potential risks associated with drone usage.

The global counter-UAS (anti-drone) market is estimated to reach $6.44 billion in 2031 from $1.57 billion in 2021, at a growth rate of 15.18% during the forecast period 2021-2031. The major driving factor for the market's robustness is the need to monitor and maintain the growing number of satellites launched.

Market Segmentation

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market by End User

The defense end user segment is expected to dominate the global counter-UAS (anti-drone) market on account of the rising need to deploy anti-drone solutions at military bases.

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market by Technology

The detection segment is anticipated to dominate the global counter-UAS (anti-drone) market. The factor contributing to this growth is the development of counter-UAS technology, which is specifically designed to track and intercept drones.

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market by Platform

The ground-based segment is expected to lead the counter-UAS (anti-drone) market. One of the factors contributing to this growth is the development of C-UAS technology which is ground-based. Some of the ground-based C-UAS technologies include Drone Sentinel, Drone Tracker, Drone Guard, Giraffe 1x, and High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator.

Counter-UAS (Anti-Drone) Market by Region

North America is expected to dominate the global counter-UAS (anti-drone) market during the forecast period. The factor attributing to the growth of this region is the presence of the key companies highly engaged in developing and providing counter-UAS (anti-drone) solutions.
