"Demand for increased efficiency in commercial and defense operations is the main factor influencing the increase of the unmanned ground vehicle market"

The unmanned ground vehicle market is expected to be valued at ~$1.5B in 2016 and is projected to extend ~$2.6B by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate of ~12.1 percent during the forecast period. The growing demand for enhanced efficiency, human safety, and the rise of terrorist activities are driving the unmanned ground vehicle market. Limited reliability of UGVs during missions and inability to predict the external environment are the restraints for this sector.

"The commercial segment is presumed to grow at the maximal CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) during the outlook period"

Established on application, the commercial segment of the unmanned ground vehicle market is expected to increase at the maximal compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the estimate period. The industry demand for unmanned ground vehicles in the commercial segment is growing due to the increasing number of applications of UGVs in the commercial market, including manufacturing, agriculture, and transportation, among others.

"Tracked UGV segment is expected to rise at the highest CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) during the outlook period"

Established on mobility, the tracked segment of the unmanned ground vehicle market is anticipated to rise at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the estimate period. The tracked segment is anticipated to grow as it is more versatile and can be successfully used at rough and unpredictable terrains for defense and commercial applications.

"Asia-Pac to account for the more considerable share and grow at the quickest rate during the outlook period"

The Asia-Pac region led the unmanned ground vehicle market in 2015. The growing terrorist activities and rising spending by emerging economies on defense operations in this area have led to the more significant share of this area in the unmanned ground vehicle market. This zone is expected to grow at the maximal rate during the estimate period. The Asia Pacific (APAC) area is the one of the prime centers for the growing manufacturing base and hence the unmanned ground vehicles market for commercial applications is anticipated to grow during the outlook period. Territories in this area, including India and China (CN), have increased their defense budgets and are procuring advanced equipment for their military operations, which is predicted to push the unmanned ground vehicle market for defense application in the Asia-Pacific regions.
