'The Global UAV Market Will Reach $7.8bn in 2011' Says Latest Visiongain Report

Dépèche transmise le 2 août 2011 par PRNewswire

LONDON, August 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


Visiongain's latest defence report, The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Market 2011-2021: Technologies for ISR and Counter-Insurgency expectedly finds a robust and growing market. Visiongain assesses that the global UAV market will reach $7.8bn in 2011. This will fluctuate in the forecast period of 2011-2021, with value remaining high over the forecast period.

Despite defence spending cuts announced recently, armed forces continue to prioritise spending on unmanned aerial vehicles. UAVs have continually proved themselves in Iraq and Afghanistan and their relative low-cost compared to manned platforms makes them highly attractive alternatives in a climate of restrained or even declining defence budgets. In fact, in some cases UAV spending is substituting spending on manned platforms.

The US continues to dominate UAV spending and is expected to continue doing so over the next decade. However, the rest of the world is aiming to catch up and have in many cases prioritised spending on the development and procurement of UAVs. Large orders are expected across most of the submarkets as countries are seen to acquire different types of UAVs to fulfil their varying requirements. In terms of value, the market will fluctuate as some acquisition programmes are completed while new ones are also embarked upon.

This report is packed with 216 tables, charts and graphs that show key trends in the UAV market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2011-2021 in terms of value (US$) and number of units for total sales/spending and for five key submarkets - high-altitude long endurance (HALE) UAVs, medium-altitude long endurance (MALE) UAVs, unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs), tactical UAVs and small UAVs - for the global market and for 20 leading national markets with submarket forecasts within each national market. Visiongain also provides forecasts, at the global level also in terms of value and units, for three key UAV segments that straddle the submarkets, including: vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) UAVs, naval UAVs and civil UAVs.

This visiongain defence report, The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Market 2011-2021: Technologies for ISR and Counter-Insurgency, will be valuable to those currently involved in or want to take part in this increasingly important defence sector.
