Anti-Drone System Sales Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

According to the latest analysis provided by Fact.MR in the anti-drone market report, sales of anti-drone systems witnessed a growth rate of 17.6% from 2017 to 2021 due to increasing demand from different use cases of anti-drone technology. Drone detection equipment accounted for a dominant market share at approximately 29.1% in 2021, as the sales of commercial drones have also increased rapidly over the years

Accelerating demand for stationary and mobile anti-drone jammers in the drone neutralization segment, by component, especially from the homeland security department, will drive anti-drone technology demand rapidly. Surging implementation of anti-drone weapons with a range of 4 km – 20 km in the North America is projected to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 678 Million over the forecast period.

Furthermore, rapidly rising use of long-range acoustic devices (LRAD) and concealed threat detection systems as a reliable choice for safety is likely to drive market expansion throughout 2022-2032. Drone detection anti-drone radars, under the drone detection equipment segment by component, are predicted to increase at a CAGR of 21.3% over the forecast period.

What’s Driving High Demand for Anti-Drone Solution?

Advancements in UAV Technology Influencing Anti-Drone Market

Due to restrictions on armed drones that fly under 800 kilometres per hour, under the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), short-term exports of MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) & HALE (High Altitude Long Endurance) UAVs are expected to increase.

The U.S. is leading in the volume and value of UAVs that are exported, and most exports made were of smaller UAVs. In 2020, in the U.S., US$ 147 million of the total US$ 171 million value of UAVs exported were lower than 500 kg in weight.

With the rise in demand for UAVs, their price per unit has gone down. Anti-drone systems can help provide better security against drones and UAVs. Thus, with an increase in the sale of UAVs, demand for anti-drone systems has been surging.

Continuously Rising Expenditure by Governments in Aerospace & Defense Industry

With increasing tension in the geopolitical conflicts between Russia – Ukraine and China – Taiwan, there has been a rise in spending on the aerospace and defense arsenal of many countries. Countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, China, and India are increasing their spending on defense, just to be prepared in case of a crisis.

Out of all the counter drone weapons, anti-drone rifles are often utilized to shoot down drones. The United States is the highest spender on defense at US$ 778 billion, followed by China, India, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia.
