Highest Growing Market

North America

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Anti Drone Market is accounted for $1.8 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $8.6 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 29.65% during the forecast period. The term "counter-drone technology," also referred to as "anti-drone technology," describes devices that are used to identify and/or stop unmanned aircraft. Other names for these systems are counter-UAS, C-UAS, and counter-UAV (counter- unmanned aerial vehicles).

According to the Association of the United States Army, terrorist groups have utilized or attempted to employ airborne drones for various purposes, including intelligence gathering, explosive delivery, and chemical weapon delivery. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) permitted the commercial use of drones beyond the pilot's line of sight in 2020.

Market Dynamics:


Significant Surge in Sales of Drones

Sales of drones have significantly increased across the globe, increasing the risk of unlawful photographing of hidden objects and invasion of privacy. The potential risk that this represents to society and essential infrastructure is one of the key elements motivating the requirement for anti-drone technology to properly manage the risk. Anti-drone systems offer three-dimensional (3D) tracking of the airspace and employ cutting-edge signal processing methods to reliably find and recognise adversarial drones. Such hostile drones, which seem to be armed or explosive, can be used to convey drugs or collect data on valuable assets. Government organisations are therefore putting anti-drone systems in place in many countries to enhance the safety of sports stadiums, borders, prisons, airports, military locations, and government-owned buildings.


Huge R&D costs

Medium- and small-sized players are unable to create and put into operation anti-drone systems due to the high R&D expenditures brought on by the introduction of laser and other expensive technology. UAVs can also be quickly identified by an anti-drone, yet it's unclear whether they'll crash, which raises questions about public safety. Governments around the globe have reacted by implementing strict anti-drone laws and regulations.


Increasing Demand for Drone Systems and Technologies

Global security risks have increased as a result of the expanding use of these unauthorised flying test systems in backyards and through windows. Many sensors built into these aircraft systems can record audio and video in any location at any time. Leading international government figures, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States, encourage the creation and promotion of cutting-edge drone collection and mapping technologies. Accurate tracking, sophisticated detection, anti-chase, and direction finding (DF) capabilities are all provided by these technologies. The businesses continue to push market expansion while drastically increasing their production capacity to meet the escalating demand for anti-drone technology.


High initial investment

Even though the propelling market's anti-drone technology is still in its infancy, it is used to create counter-UAV systems that go through stringent research and development processes. Such new industry technologies are being introduced by a number of market participants who intend to patent them. Due to evolving elements like the usage of lasers and other expensive technologies, the cost of research and development has also increased significantly. As a result of the growing demand for a large initial investment, small and medium-sized players cannot afford to develop and deploy anti-drone systems.

Covid-19 Impact

The international anti-drone market benefited from the Covid-19 pandemic's outbreak. During the pandemic's height, there was a rise in military spending. Also, there was no change in the purchase of anti-drone systems for airports and other crucial infrastructure. The spread of less expensive and smaller drones is expected to raise demand for anti-drone technology. After the covid epidemic, incidents of unidentifiable drones breaching security and terrorist organisations using drones are further boosting the market for anti-drone equipment.

The Electronic system segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The Electronic system segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Electronic system has retained the biggest market share for decades and it is predicted that it will be the fastest-growing category in the coming years. It is blamed on the enormous sums of money that several important global entities invested in the creation of electronic anti-drone systems. In addition, the use of cutting-edge technology and low production costs are driving up consumer interest in electronic anti-drone systems. Electronic tools such as elec systems, radar, GNSS jamming, RF jammers, or infrared sensor systems are used to counter drones.

The military and defense segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The military and defense segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the extensive usage and consumption of these technologies in the military and defence industry. This specific industry, which deals with a nation's national security, has quickly adopted the use of anti-drone technologies. Recent years have seen an upsurge in numerous terrorist attacks and criminal operations, which can be stopped by using cutting-edge technologies like anti-drone systems.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to increased government investment on building aviation and defence facilities in a number of countries, especially China and India, is responsible for this expansion. Many local enterprises and organisations, including China National Nuclear Company, the Beijing Institute of Technology, and Nova Sky, are partnering to focus on counter-UAS technology R&D. The demand for anti-drone products will grow as security flaws and the usage of drones for criminal purposes both raise. To get an advantage over their rivals, major anti-drone producers in the area are concentrating on creating technologically sophisticated versions and enhancing their current product lines.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to aerospace and defence sectors, especially in the United States, are facing an increasing trend in the deployment of anti-drone products and services. The global demand for anti-drones has increased as a result of the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) in the United States assessing various counter-UAS technology at multiple airports worldwide over the past few years.

Defense high-energy laser weapon system testing, deployment, and maintenance will be the key priorities of the facility. The decision was made as the need for anti-drone technology continued to rise as a result of new threats like the continuing Russia-Ukraine war.
