Anti-drone Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a positive impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increasing contracts for anti-drone systems is notably driving the market growth, although factors such as technological and regulatory challenges may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the anti-drone industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Anti-drone Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the market growth is the increasing number of contracts for anti-drone systems. The increasing drone contacts open doors for more sales in the anti-drones in the global market. For instance, in December 2018, DroneShield entered into a Teaming Agreement with Thales Programas De Electronica Y Comunicaciones SAU (a subsidiary of Thales), wherein Thales would use and promote DroneShield products in its defence and security contract bids in Spain, involving counter-drone aspects. In September 2018, Thales, Department 13 International Ltd., and EPE signed an MOU for the integration of MESMER software into the Thales Bushmaster vehicle to produce the first robust mobile MESMER unit, a counter-drone system that provides a safe and effective method of protecting personnel and infrastructure from drones.

Key Anti-drone Market Trend

Increasing investments in R&D is the major trend influencing the market growth. Anti-drone technology is a new trend in the aerospace and defence industry. The technologies used in the manufacturing of anti-drone systems are witnessing several R&D activities. Also, several vendors are introducing new technologies and are planning to patent them. Boeing invested $11 million in developing a laser-based anti-drone system in the US. The system uses a 10-kilowatt laser that can hunt a drone using an array of hi-tech drone sensors. In March 2018, the US Navy awarded Lockheed Martin a $150 million contract for the development, manufacturing, and delivery of two high-power laser weapon systems, including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (CUAS) capabilities by FY2020. The US Department of Defense s budget request for funding counter-drone systems was increased to $1.05 billion in FY2019 as compared with $528.8 million in FY2018; out of the $1.05 billion, $468.8 million is for procurement, and $583.9 is for R&D. Thus, the increasing investments in the R&D of these systems contribute to the growth of the market.

Key Anti-drone Market Challenge

Technological and regulatory challenges is one of the key challenges hindering market growth. Anti-drone technology involves detecting, monitoring, and countering drones. However, there are certain drawbacks associated with these technologies. The detection sensors, such as optical/thermal cameras, radars, acoustic, and radio, have limited range capabilities. They have unreliable connectivity and are expensive. The identification of drones is another challenge. This is because, even if the radar detects a drone successfully, they fail to establish whether it is an enemy drone flying in a restricted area or a recreational drone. Various approaches to counter drones include shooting them down using a laser gun or missile or using jammers to jam the communication linking to drones. However, these approaches do not abide by any regulations formulated by regulatory bodies. It is illegal to intervene in the operations of drones or shoot them down (for commercial and private operations). The stringent federal regulations are hampering the adoption of anti-drone systems. This can hamper the adoption of anti-drone systems for commercial and individual uses.

This market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

39% of the market's growth will originate from North America during the forecast period. The US is the key market for anti-drone in North America. Market growth in this region will be slower than the growth of the market in APAC, Europe and MEA regions.

Several industries, like defence, commercial infrastructure, homeland security, and households, are expected to witness increased demand for anti-drone systems. This will facilitate market growth in North America over the forecast period. This market research report entails detailed information on the competitive intelligence, marketing gaps, and regional opportunities in store for vendors, which will assist in creating efficient business plans.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic spread widely across North America, especially the US, which is expected to hinder the growth of the market. This is because of the shift in focus to healthcare. Owing to the diversion of government and private funding away from infrastructure, agriculture, and other sectors, this factor hampers the target market growth. This has been done to ensure the well-being of COVID-19 patients in North American countries such as the US, Canada, and Mexico. As a result, the demand for anti-drone systems declined in the region in 2020. This negatively impacted the market in 2020. However, the market is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period owing to the recovery in demand from the military and other sectors.
