The research study by Technavio on the global counter unmanned aerial vehicle defense system market for 2017-2021 provides a detailed industry analysis based on the product type (UAV detection systems and UAV disruption systems) and geography (the Americas, EMEA, and APAC).

The global counter unmanned aerial vehicle defense system market is projected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 11% over the forecast period. The immense public support for the development of countermeasures against unmanned aerial vehicles is one of the key factors driving the market growth,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead analyst at Technavio for defense research.

Competitive vendor landscape

End-users of the counter-UAV defense system market are shifting their focus from quantity to quality, in addition to cost efficiency. However, this has posed a challenge to the vendors as they find it challenging to maintain a balance between cost and quality at the same time, and provide upgrades and retrofit solutions that meet modern military needs.

Western military forces are mainly looking for high-end upgraded weapons, which has triggered a wide range of development initiatives by the US and European countries. Also, emerging countries in the Middle East and APAC are also strengthening their counter-UAV defense systems with modern capabilities. The existing players should identify such evolving trends and market shifts, and respond to them accordingly for their long-term success and survival in the market.
