The global counter UAS market is expected to be valued at USD 4.70 billion in 2027 from USD 698.6 million in 2019, registering a CAGR of 26.8% through the forecast period. Counter UAS (unmanned aircraft systems), also known as counter drone technology or anti-drone technology, refers to various systems that detect and intercept UAVs (unmanned aircraft vehicles) and drones in flight. This technology is increasingly gaining recognition, with the mass production of drones and rising concerns about threats posed to military and civilian environments. Counter-UAS primarily performs drone detection and, secondly, it helps with drone interception, using radars, RF sensors, and PTZ (pan tilt zoom) cameras. However, radars and RF sensors are the most effective technologies used in drone detection, as they enhance airspace security and can be used even in urban environments with high noise density.
The global counter UAS market revenue is projected to augment significantly over the forecast period. The most crucial factors influencing the growth of this market are the rising adoption of the counter UAS technology in defense agencies and intelligence bureaus, rising demand for technologically enhanced weaponry, and the increasing usage of UAVs, drones, and missile destroyers in the military & defense sector. A massive surge in cross-border conflicts and asymmetric warfare, growing adoption of laser-based counter UAS systems in military warfare, and increasing use of laser-directed energy weapons to destroy drones and rockets are the other vital parameters bolstering the market growth. The increasing incidences of security violations by unidentified drones, growing terrorist attacks, rise in border trespassing activities, rising military applications of anti-drone systems, and considerable investments in military & defense intelligence create ample opportunities for the global counter UAS market growth in the future.
Key findings of the report:
- The Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the global counter UAS market, accounting for the largest revenue share. India, China, Israel, South Korea, and North Korea are the key contributors to the regional market growth. Increased government investments in defense & law enforcement activities, rise in geopolitical tensions, growing incidences of terrorist invasions and asymmetric warfare, and the surging use of anti-drone systems for airspace security are the main factors triggering market growth in the Asia Pacific.
- Key market players include The Boeing Company, The Raytheon Company, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman Corporation, L-3 Communications Ltd, Thales Group, Moog Inc., Saab AB, and Israel Aerospace Industries.
- In August 2020, Liteye Systems Inc., a global leader in defense technology, launched its Trailer Anti-UAS Defense System (T-AUDS), equipped with an OTM (on-the-move) counter UAS solution. The T-AUDS is a multi-domain awareness and protection solution that helps detect and destroy RF-controlled, silent flight drones.
