The “Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market Value and Volume: Focus on Class (small and large), Component, and End-User Analysis and Forecast (2017-2021)” report has been added to’s offering.

Global UAV Market Anticipated to Reach $21.47 Billion by 2021
The demand for UAVs is swiftly increasing among different end-users across the globe. The market is driven by number of factors such as rise in their demand across commercial and non-commercial end-users, various consumer-centric technological developments and declining prices, among others.

The UAV market accounted for a market value of $8.02 billion in 2016 with small UAVs holding the highest share.

Small UAVs hold a large share of revenue in the UAV market. The high share of small UAVs is mainly attributed to their wide range of applications across commercial and non-commercial end-users, low cost and rise in their demand across different geographies. The large UAVs are only used across non-commercial end-users.

North America is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period which is followed by Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the world. The U.S. is the leading country in the UAVs market and it is one of the prominent exporters of UAVs after Israel. The country is home to several UAV manufacturers for both commercial as well as non-commercial end-users. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR with China dominating the market in this region.
