Drivers and Restrictions

Strong demand from the defense sector to support growth prospects

Industry players are likely to bet on the defense sector to drive the growth of the unmanned traffic management market. The exponential demand for UTM services will be pronounced in Russia, China, Saudi Arabia and India. Additionally, developments in air traffic management will accelerate the penetration of next-generation military drones. To illustrate, in September 2021, the Indian Army signed a contract worth around $13.7 million with Alpha Design for the purchase of more than 100 strike drones. The drones would be manufactured and supplied by Alpha Design in a joint venture with Elbit Security Systems.

Stakeholders see the media, advertising, entertainment, and precision agriculture sectors as having high demand for the technology. However, stringent government regulations can challenge industry players preparing to expand their penetration.

Regional outlook

Rising Footfall of Drone Manufacturers to Propel Asia-Pacific Market

Major corporations are poised to inject funds into emerging and advanced Asia-Pacific economies thanks to the growing penetration of drone manufacturers. So much so that the trend towards crop monitoring and aerial photography has instilled confidence among stakeholders. Asia-Pacific unmanned traffic management market share will witness an upward growth trajectory owing to increased demand for precision agriculture.

Major players predict that the United States and Canada will provide lucrative opportunities in the context of investments in the defense landscape. The North America market size was worth USD 0.30 billion in 2020 and will grow with the growing penetration of drones in surveillance and logistics applications. Large companies, such as Lockheed Martin and L3 Harris, are likely to expand their portfolios to gain competitive advantage.

The European market forecast will be strong due to the increasing penetration of navigation infrastructure, communications and surveillance systems. End users are likely to increase their investments in the UK, France and Germany following demand for agricultural solutions and advanced monitoring systems.
