UCAV- Market Outlook, Demand Drivers and Advanced Weapon Technologies

Summary

Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAV) will acquire greater market share and receive higher funding than manned fighter jets over the next five years. Supported by the ability to operate in high risk and complex target environments, and their intelligence gathering and reconnaissance capabilities, demand for UCAVs will increase over the next five years in spite of anticipated defense budget cuts. Demand for next-generation precision-guided weapons and low cost autonomous attack systems, along with advanced weapons technologies such as low power jamming systems and micro-munitions, will be high over the next five years. Geographically, investment on UCAVs will be higher in North America and Asia-Pacific, resulting in significant demand opportunities in the US and China during the next five years.

According to survey results, 60% of defense industry executives expect unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) to attain greater share within the defense industry as compared to manned fighter jets over the next five years. In addition, 37% of survey respondents do not anticipate UCAVs to occupy a major share in comparison to manned fighter jets during the next five years. The expectations of a greater share are attributed to growing use of UCAVs in countering internal and external threats such as terrorism, insurgency and drug trafficking, and the need for network centric warfare capabilities, higher precision and less causality.

In total, 64%, 59%, and 52% of survey respondents from small, large, and medium-sized companies, respectively, anticipate UCAVs to reach major share within the defense industry as compared to manned fighter jets during the next five years.
