The advancing deployment applications of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and their emerging mission capabilities contribute to the market growth. Precise market data and analysis is crucial for companies that require worldwide production, deployment, support, and maintenance of UAVs.
WinterGreen Research has reported the release of a new study on Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), titled ‘Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018’, where UAS markets are expected to attain considerable growth, owing to the unique potential of UAS to enable automated surveillance of extensive areas and to execute strategic military missions that attack terrorists, thereby sparing the civilians.
UAVs are self-piloted or remotely piloted aircraft that can convey communications equipment, cameras, sensors, or other payloads. With reduced size than manned aircraft, these aircraft are more convenient to use and ensure improved fighting capability of operational war forces.
Development in unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAV) goes hand in hand with an increase in UAVs’ mission capabilities and improvement in endurance limit. Therefore, the awareness and mission capabilities of UAVs are generating an equation for significant growth.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for Border Security - Global Market & Technologies Outlook - 2013-2021 states that UAVs are being successfully deployed in border security missions. When the technical capabilities of UAVs are integrated with other features including cost-effective storage and transportation, its potential business opportunities will grow rapidly. UAVs are generating interest among the Governments, thus promoting new business opportunities.
