Global Counter Drone Market to Witness Revolutionary Growth

Newark, NJ, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per the report published by, the global counter-drone market is expected to grow from USD 1.99 billion in 2021 to USD 7.62 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 16.09% during the forecast period 2022-2030.

The rising instances of illegal migration, human trafficking, animal trafficking, and smuggling of contraband and other illicit substances have heightened the need and urgency to have real-time surveillance of porous borders and different sea routes. Real-time monitoring of the proxy militants and other extremists and their movements must be performed to avoid any disturbances they plan to carry out to maintain peace and tranquillity in the domestic territory. Insurgencies and anti-social gatherings disrupt communal harmony and make surveillance a vital aspect of law and order. Surveillance can be used as a preventive as well as a curative measure. Surveillance for gathering information and monitoring are preventive functions of the surveillance systems. Precision strikes and alert systems are some corrective functions. The number of instances involving cross-border terrorism, illegal immigration, human trafficking, and smuggling has increased the urgency to have 24/7 real-time surveillance systems to prevent them. The rapid imaging advancement in the counter-drone technologies, which allow better visuals, audio quality, improved, precision targeting, and enhanced durability, will drive the growth of the counter-drone market. Research and development of better, more reliable, and durable security systems with enhanced battery life will also contribute to the rising adoption of counter drones for surveillance purposes. Since counter-drones reduce the engagement of humans, thereby reducing the risk of loss of life, they are gaining popularity amongst the military establishments across the globe. However, the sophisticated nature of counter drones and the high-tech components used for their production make them expensive. The operation of such sophisticated technologies requires experts. The costly installation and maintenance can hamper the growth of the market. With new product innovations, production costs will come down in the future, opening up lucrative market opportunities for the players in the global counter-drone market.

Market Growth & Trends

The war on Ukraine declared by Russia has changed the security equation in the European continent. Europe is facing its biggest security crisis since the cold war. Similarly, regular skirmishes in the Israel Palestine conflict, which led to a 13-day war in 2021, have heightened the concerns about national security. Similarly, the ongoing wars in West Asia and the African continent have led to an increase in illegal immigration into Europe via land and sea routes. The monitoring of these porous borders to reduce the illegal immigration and protect the territorial integrity of the countries becomes critical. Unmanned surveillance systems are an ideal solution for real time, 24/7 monitoring of borders and coasts. Similarly, contraband, and illicit drug trafficking in the Americas is also a cause of concern for many sovereign nations. With rising internal and external national security concerns, the military spending of countries across the globe has increased exponentially to secure national security interests. New technology, including the niche segment of unmanned devices, vehicles, and systems, is gaining popularity. The rising adoption of drones is attributed to their reliability, durability, and ability to reach any terrain for many hours, given their long battery life. Easy maneuverability and precision targeting with high-quality imaging enable proper monitoring, evaluation, and assessments of foreign or other threats. The inaccessible nature of certain terrains and other associated risks that make it difficult to monitor these vulnerable border openings can be mitigated by using counter drones. Remote deterrence against insurgents or extremists can be carried out without the direct involvement of any military personnel. Targets can be hit remotely with precision using the advanced technologies of counter drones without the direct involvement of military personnel. The instances of loss of lives are drastically reduced while, at the same time, a better security system is put in place.
