The global UAV market is forecast to grow through to 2025. The rate of growth will differ from region to region but Europe will see the strongest growth.

A perceived increase in both internal and external security threats is forcing countries across all regions to invest in protection and UAVs are a key feature as they look for solutions that offer both combat and information gathering benefits. Demand has been increased by a growing number of territorial disputes.
UCAVs (unmanned combat air vehicles) are becoming an increasing area of focus for R&D efforts and solar-powered UAVs are also a key developing trend with recent successes demonstrating that they are a very realistic and efficient alternative to fuel-powered aircraft. There is a noticeable shift towards mini, micro and nano UAVs.
The market faces a number of challenges. High accident rates continue to impede the industry and the presence of international associations often hinders export efforts. The growing popularity of UAVs puts pressure on the miniaturization of subsystems such as radars, EO/IR systems and Electronic Warfare systems.
