According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Market is accounted for $10.25 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $17.41 billion by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. Growing demand of UAVS for non-military applications and lessened risks associated with the use of unmanned aerial vehicle are the major factors fueling the market growth. On the other hand, strict airspace regulations and lack of track record usage are inhibiting the market. Implementation of sense & avoid systems in UAVS is the major opportunity for vendors in unmanned aerial vehicle market.

Air traffic management and social issues such as privacy & nuisance concern are the major challenges faced by the players in unmanned aerial vehicle market. North America is anticipated to hold the largest share in the unmanned aerial vehicle in 2015. Owing to rising investments in commercial and defense applications in the U.K. and Russia, Europe is anticipated to observe a strong growth.

Some of the key players in the market include BASF SE, Textron Inc., Northrop Grumman Corporation, Textron Inc., The Boeing Company, AeroVironment Inc., Safran SA, Honeycomb Corp, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Aviation Industry Corporation, Aeronautics Ltd, GA-ASI, Thales Group, Elbit Systems Ltd and SAAB AB.
