NEW YORK, Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the UAV industry looks positive with opportunities in civil and military applications. Global UAV industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2015 to 2020. The major growth drivers of this market are increasing demand of Unmanned Ariel Vehicle (UAV) for intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, and perform mission without risking human life.

In this market, UAVs are used in civil and military applications. Lucintel predicts that the demand for UAV in civil applications are likely to experience the highest growth due to automation of work in applications, such as agriculture, consumer product delivery and wild life security and initiatives, to provide airspace access to UAVs for civil applications. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the civil application of UAV is expected to show above average growth during the forecast period.

Within the UAV industry, military application of UAV is expected to remain the largest due to increasing usage of UAV in ISR missions, homeland security, and border security. UAVs have been in service for several decades, but got high exposure in the last decade due to its high-profile use by US military in Iraq and Afghanistan. In terms of UAV type, Small, MALE, and HALE are the three types of UAV. MALE UAV is expected to remain the largest segment by value due to acceptability of MALE UAVs in most of the operations. It can fulfill the need of long endurance operations at lower cost.

North America is expected to remain the largest market due to the high procurement by US government. APAC and ROW are expected to witness highest CAGR with 11.6% and 12.4% respectively, over the forecast period due to increasing defense budget of developing economies and indigenous development of UAV.
