The global military drone market is anticipated to grow at an impressive CAGR in the forecast period, 2023-2027. The growing popularity of unmanned aerial vehicles in the defense forces owing to their massive military applications such as surveying and mapping, monitoring, and combat operations are the primary factors driving the demand for the global military drone market. Also, the rise in the defense expenditure and allocation of huge funds for research and development activities to improve the performance of military drones are expected to create new growth avenues for the global military drone market in the next five years.

Increased Demand for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Drives the Market Demand

Military forces have started to use unmanned aerial vehicles for different applications such as border security, crime control, conduct insurgency, threat detection and identification of risk-prone areas, crowd monitoring, and disaster management, amongst others. They are a cost-effective option for defense forces instead of hiring defense personnel. Military drones are becoming a necessity in modern-day warfare. Drones can be used to provide logistics support to soldiers who are either on the battlefield or inaccessible areas. Drones are capable of carrying heavy weapons, thousands of kilos of ammo, and even missiles. Military drones can provide real-time updates from remote locations or warzones that helps the authorities to make informed decisions. Military drones are highly precise and can carry lots of payloads and fly for hours. Drones can also be used to monitor and in surveillance activities, preventing soldiers from patrol in difficult situations. Many companies are developing drones, such as Paras Defense & Space Tech is heavily focused on drones. In 2021, it partnered with High Lander, which provides end-to-end solutions for the management of autonomous drone fleets. The availability of advanced drones in the market is expected to bolster the demand for the global military aircraft market over the forecast period.

Growing Military Spending Propels the Market Demand

Countries have increased their spending on the procurement of advanced technologies, weapons, and equipment to secure their borders. There is a rise in cross-border conflicts, domestic disputes, and terrorism activities, making the government authorities strengthen their armed forces. Countries increase their defense expenditure based on their financial power, political scenario, internal, external, and geostrategic situation, and economic condition. Military expenditure is crucial for operations, maintenance, research and development activities, and procurement of the latest weapons, equipment, and technologies. The changing warfare techniques are accelerating the adoption of advanced technologies in weapons and equipment. Based on the report by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the defense expenditure was $2113 billion in 2021, and the top defense spender countries were the United States, China, India, the United Kingdom, and Russia. The increased defense expenditure is expected to increase the global military drone market share in the next five years.
