Where Will Drone Demand Surge High in South Asia & Oceania?

“Increasing Investments in Defense Sector Creating New Market Opportunities”

Political tensions in the South Asian region have been mounting for the past couple of decades and this trend is pushing countries in this region to increase their defense and military spending budgets. Use of drones in modern warfare is projected to gain high prominence over the coming years as the latest instance of drone use in warfare can be found in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

With increased military budgets, countries in South Asia & Oceania are more willing to spend on drones that can counter attacks from land, air, or water. As such, demand for drone motors is also set to surge in parallel across the region.

  • In January 2021, at an Army Day Parade in India, the Indian Army showcased its drone-swarming technology using 75 drones. The drones displayed their capabilities by completing different AI-enabled offensive missions and also established India’s stance on incorporating advanced warfare technologies in its defense mechanisms.
  • Sales of drone motors for military drones in South Asia & Oceania are forecasted to rise at 14.9% CAGR from 2024 to 2034.
