Target Drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle that is generally remote controlled and is used in the training of ant-aircraft crews. Target drones often resemble radio controlled model aircraft and are used not only for training pilots with live weapons but are also utilized by military for surveillance. Target drones have high revenues in Americas and Europe currently and are forecasted to show high growth in APAC. The key drivers for such growth can be attributed to insufficient inventory among the military of developed nations that has forced them to increase their defense budget spending on aerial targets specifically.

Target drones use different types of engines such as piston, wankel, turboprop and turbojet. Piston Engine is a reciprocating engine also known as internal combustion engines. In this type of engines the fuel mixture is burned along within the engine. Aircraft piston engines are typically designed to run on aviation gasoline which has a high octane rating compared to other automotive gasoline. These high octane ratings allows for the use of higher compression ratios, increasing power output and improves efficiencies at higher altitudes. Components of piston engine include cylinders, pistons, connecting rods, crank shafts, valves and others. The demand for piston engines is due to their use in the most advanced rotary technology and premium materials which can result in creating industry leading target drones which are best in performance, light weight, reliable and efficient.

The target drones market has better opportunities currently as 3D Printing and Solar Energy proliferate the UAV market across the globe. Also, the developing nations such as China, India and few others are keen on developing indigenous air based defense equipment to reduce their import spending on defense. Although, Target Drones have also been developed locally but changing warfare tactics along with development in advanced military technology, a certain demand either for product or required support will prove to be a notable factor for boosting the demand for Target Drones in these countries.
