In addition, drone defence system has a huge market share in the military sector and are widely used in most of the top defence systems for surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance, along with precisely striking the enemy targets with the help of stand-off missiles. Apart from this, the drone defence system also has mobile applications that are used as aerial armor for detection of drones. Drone detection application can be used on both Android and Apple mobile devices that can subscribe detection data network for threat detection.
Moreover, radar can also detect the drones with small rich communication services (RCS) but the radar systems are affected due to different weather conditions such as fog and rain, therefore, drone defence systems are widely adopted, which works in any weather conditions. The drone defence systems are used with different technologies such as identification & detection technology and countermeasures technology. These technologies are widely utilized in various end users that includes military, commercial and homeland security, among others. Some of the key players in the global drone defense system market are DroneShield Ltd., Dedrone Holdings, Inc., Thales Group, HENSOLDT AG, Orelia SAS, Advanced Protection Systems, Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd., Leonardo S.P.A., Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd. and Aaronia AG.
Global Drone Defense System Market, By Technology
Based on technology, drone defense system market is segmented into the following:
- Identification & Detection
In 2020, the identification & detection segment led the overall drone defense system market in terms of market value accounting for over 62% of the global market. The drone defence system is widely used for detection and identification due to rising attacks by terrorist groups, and increasing incidences of security breach in different defence systems. The drone defence systems also detects unregulated airborne commercial drones that enters the enemy territory. Moreover, rising advancements in the drones that are used for detecting illegal entries and identifying the enemy is considered as one of the major factor that is driving the market growth and enhancing the market share of the identification & detection segment. In addition, drone defence system is also used for countering probable drone attacks by the enemies which is enhancing the growth of countermeasures segment.
Global Drone Defense System Market, By End User
Based on end user, the drone defense system market is segmented into the following:
- Homeland Security
In 2020, the military segment led the overall drone defense system market in terms of market value. The drone defence systems are widely used in the military sector as most of the defence systems across the world are focusing to develop their system by investing in the advanced technologies such as drone defence, anti-drone attacks, and so on, which are capable of identifying enemy drones and further countering or destroying them. Moreover, there is a rise in illegal entries of the enemy at the country borders, where drones are widely used by the military personnel for detecting. Apart from detecting, drones also has radio frequency (RF) analyzers, optical sensors, acoustic sensors, radio frequency (RF) jammers, radars, and high energy lasers that are used for destroying unauthorized drones in the territory, which is very beneficial in the military, therefore, the adoption rate of drone defence system is more in the military sector. In addition, the drone defence systems are also used in the homeland security and shows fastest growth during forecast period.
Global Drone Defense System Market, By Geography
Based on geography, the drone defense system market is segmented into following:
- North America
- Rest of Europe
- Asia Pacific
- Rest of Asia Pacific
- Latin America
- Rest of Latin America
- Middle East and Africa (MEA)
- GCC Countries
- South Africa
- Rest of MEA
In 2020, North America held the largest share in the drone defense system market because of the high adoption of advanced technology in the defence sector and awareness about the drone defence in the military for identifying and countering the enemy. The U.S. government provides around 10% of their budget to the defence sector which is around US$ 778 Bn, therefore, North America spends huge amount for developing and implementing advanced features and weapons to their defence system. The U.S. government has deployed advanced identification and detection systems which are assisted by the drones, anti-unmanned aerial vehicles are also deployed in most of the defence sector which counters the enemy missiles or drones. Moreover, unmanned aerial vehicles are widely used by the US army for detecting the enemy at the hostile areas or in the enemy zones which reduces life risk of military personnel and increases the demand of the drone defence system market. In addition, Asia Pacific region also has advanced military which also uses drone defence system at great extent and shows fastest growth in market during the forecast period.
