26 Jun 13. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market worth $8351.1m By 2018. According to a new market research report, “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market (2013 – 2018)”, the total global UAV Market (2013-2018) is expected to reach $8,351.1m by 2018 with a CAGR of 3.30%. US has by far been the superior force when it comes to deployment of UAV’s in the world, European deployment is rather different than in US with extensive usage of TUAV’s and fewer HALE and MALE systems. SUAV’s has seen a robust growth due to its widespread applications. Apart from US, the countries which have shown major interest in UAV’s are as follows: Brazil and Argentina in Latin America, UK, France and Germany in Europe, South Africa in Africa, Israel and UAE in Middle East, India, Australia, Japan and South Korea in APAC. Russia too has an in-depth UAV program, but their success levels have been limited. In addition to the military market, the market for civilian and commercial unmanned air vehicles is growing. Civilian UAV market refers to UAV’s operated by non-military government. Civilian usage of UAVs is present in Australia, France, South Africa, Sweden and US. With FAA regulation until 2015, civilian UAV’s market will grow at a slower rate when compared to military and security applications. USA and EU are looking at policies by which they can allow the usage of UAV’s in the national airspaces. The global UAV Market (2013-2018) revenue is expected to grow from $7,098.6m in 2013 to $8,351.1m by 2018. Global UAV Market (2013-2018) is majorly driven by the growth of demand for Homeland Security. Maritime patrolling and counter privacy is also one of the drivers for this market.

27 Jun 13. Analysis indicates that the military radar systems market is set to be worth $8.57bn in 2013. The author of the military radar systems report comments that: ‘The military radar systems is currently in a state of flux, with core markets now the preserve of a dominant few players, while smaller and newer vendors seek to compete in the margins and in emerging areas. While defence cutbacks in many developed markets are ongoing, the combined effects of spending in developing markets and the increased proliferation of advanced weapons systems is expected to drive the market in the years to come. There will be restrictions on spending in certain areas, while others will avoid projected budget cuts entirely; the trick for investors and businesses will be in foreknowledge of these areas and active efforts to seize the opportunities which are present, both now and in the future.’ The report has 208 pages and contains 153 tables, charts and graphs that illustrate the trends and market projections within the military radar systems market.
