Report Details
The small UAV market is likely to become one of the major economic and technological stories of the modern age, because of the wide variety of applications and the added value related to these unmanned machines.

However, the world market for small UAVs is currently being restrained, largely by regulation of unmanned operations in civilian airspace. But impending regulatory changes are expected to unlock the huge potential of this technology. Visiongain analysis indicates that the small UAV market sector will reach $1.33bn in 2014 with significant potential for growth.

Growth will be defined by the pace of development for UAV technology in the different countries, and will be driven by demand for small UAVs from across a range of lucrative sector applications.
