Global Anti Drone Market - Forecasts from 2017 to 2022
Global Anti Drone market is estimated to grow to US$986.700 million by 2022, increasing from US$397.783 million in 2017, at a CAGR of 19.92% over the forecast period. Drone is a technology which is evolving continuously as more investment and new innovations are being introduced in this area. Drones which are also known as unmanned aerial vehicles or unmanned aircraft systems are aircraft which can be flown without human intervention. The flight of such aircraft can be monitored and controlled through software working with onboard sensors and GPS. Such aircraft can be used to provide security to people during emergencies, are very useful during search and rescue operations, can monitor events like protests, public events, or some unwanted event from the sky, can inspect wind turbines, power lines and pipelines among many other applications. But drone technology can be used as a threat like drones are being used to deliver bombs, spy on persons or countries or drop drugs into prisons. Hence, anti drone technology was developed in order to detect incoming drones and either alert official in order to combat with it or infecting approaching drones with malware. Some anti drone can impair the control frequencies of a drone and its access to GPS coordinates.
Few anti drone technologies available in the market to counter drone menace are missiles as they are lethal and accurate; laser weapon system which uses infrared beam; signal jamming which jams radio signal connection of the drone with its operator; operator locator through which small drones which are flying illegally can be located; and drone shields which uses acoustic technology to sense drone among others. The rising incidence of security breach by unmanned aerial vehicles is the prime factor governing the global market of anti drone systems. The purpose of restraining illegal activities from cross borders or ensuring safety of the public from terrorism or some other threats also boosts the sales of anti drone systems. However, the requirement of heavy expenses in order to deploy and use such systems restrain the market growth.
Primarily anti drone technologies fall under four categories capture, grounding, detection, and destruction. The unmanned aerial vehicle is captured by net guns and disables them. Undergrounding, these anti drone technologies are trained to hack into UAV operating frequencies and take their controls. Using technology, drones that are invisible to radar can be detected. Weapons are used to destroy drones. Geographically, North America will drive the global market of anti drone technology due to the region’s investments in defense and aerospace sector. Similarly, with improvement in aerospace and defense infrastructure, the Asia Pacific region is also expected to drive the global market of anti drones.
