Safety From Increasing Cross-Border Threats Drives The Growth Of Anti-Drone Market


Anti-Drone devices are the protection systems used for detection, tracking and identification of unauthorized intrusion from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones. These systems are designed for protection against UAVs and realize countermeasures to neutralize the threat from the same. Improved government spending in defense sector to ensure public safety from increasing cross-border threats is the key factor driving the market growth of anti-drone system.

Free Sample:

Anti-drone market is segmented on the basis of detection type, technology, end-use and drone size. On the basis of detection type, anti-drone market is classified as detection system and tracking and disruption system. Detection systems are usually deployed for monitoring of UAVs, whereas tracking and disrupt system are used for neutralizing UAVs from air surveillance and potential malicious activity. The increasing need for neutralizing global threats from illicit activities is expected to result in superior market growth of anti-drone systems in the near term. In terms of technology, anti-drone market is classified as conventional kinetic system, laser system and electronics system. Over past few years, significant improvement in terms of application of electronic system in anti-drone systems, this technology is expected to witness faster growth during the forecast period. The anti-drone market can be further analyzed on the basis end-use as aerospace and defense, government and public sector, commercial places (airport, prisons, critical infrastructure and home land security). In terms of drone size, anti-drone market is further classified as large (more than 14 nm detection range), medium class (between 4 to 6 nm detection ranges) and micro UAVs (between 1 to 2 nm detection ranges).

Increasing security breach by UAV’s and rising security threat due to unlawful activities are the key factors driving the market growth anti-drone systems. To ensure public safety from increasing cross border activities which ultimately leads to terrorism and other illegal activities has increased the use of drones and UAVs by defense and commercial sectors. Moreover, protection from infringement of UAV’s is the key factor fuelling the market growth of anti-drone systems. However, high initial costs in terms of deployment and development of anti-drone systems is crucial factor affecting its market growth. The significant financial spending from governments to improve the defense system, has led to development of state-of-the-art drones and to counteract these systems, anti-drone systems requires similar capital investment. Furthermore, ensure public safety from anti-drone systems is another factor curbing its growth. The anti-drone system commonly uses search and destroy techniques, hence deployment of these system in public and commercial places such as shopping malls, and concerts is a challenging task. Development of anti-drone systems which can efficiently track long-ranged UAVs can be seen as huge market opportunity by its manufacturers. These anti-drone systems can lead into tracking and disruption of UAVs from long range and mitigate the public safety concerns.

On a global scale, North America region is expected to be the market leader in terms of adoption and deployment of anti-drone systems. The significant investment in aerospace and defense sector in the countries such as the U.S. is anticipated to result in deployment of anti-drone system. However, with improving government spending in development of aerospace and defense infrastructure in countries such as China, Japan and India, Asia Pacific region is expected to witness faster growth rate of ant-drone systems in the coming years.
