FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Revenues in the military drone market have been significantly rising in recent years and are expected to continue their rise in the coming years.
PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Military drones are guided autonomously, by remote control, or by both means, and carry some combination of sensors, electronic receivers and transmitters, and offensive ordnance. Utilized for strategic and combat zone reconnaissance, they can also intervene on the front lines — either by designating targets for precision-guided munitions dropped or fired from manned systems, or directly, by dropping or firing these munitions themselves. The earliest UAVs were known as remotely piloted vehicles (RPVs) or drones. They were small radio-controlled aircraft first used during World War II for target training for fighters and antiaircraft guns. Today, all major military powers and even some militia groups employ battlefield surveillance UAVs to extend the view of the ground and naval forces and to enhance the reach and accuracy of their supporting fire. The government funding for military drones is increasing to enhance the efficiency of military operations. This will boost demand and increase the production of military drones… Most of the global defense spending is attributed to the development and procurement of drones. A report from MarketsAndMarkets projected that the military drone market is projected to grow from USD 12.0 billion in 2022 to USD 17.0 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2022 to 2027. Active companies in the markets this week include: Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO), AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (NYSE: UAVS), Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX), Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON).
The report said: “Various new military applications are being uncovered wherein UAVs can be used. One of these applications involves the use of UAVs for the delivery of military cargo. Drones can be used to resupply soldiers on the battlefield. The idea of using UAVs for cargo delivery in the military sector came from the commercial sector, where drones are being used to deliver products to customers by companies such as Amazon. Currently, a major portion of military supplies is transported through road convoys, making the convoys vulnerable to enemy attacks. UAVs, on the other hand, take aerial routes, which can be changed so that the risks of enemy attacks on convoys can be reduced. The use of UAVs for military cargo delivery also eliminates high-risk situations for soldiers in convoys. Deliveries using UAVs will be faster and safer as compared to traditional road convoys. Fixed-wing drones make use of wings to move upward from the ground during take-off, just like airplanes. They require engines to offer them a forward thrust, while wings offer them the required vertical lift to fly. Fixed-wing UAVs can fly longer than rotary-wing drones. They are most distinct in terms of their payloads, endurance ranges, and applications… The fixed-wing segment is projected to grow from USD 11,310 million in 2021 to USD 15,940 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period.”
