The changing nature of advanced warfare is likely to drive the growth prospects for the global unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) market from 2017 to 2021.Currently a total of 28 countries use unmanned combat aerial vehicles in active service, a number, which will go only higher as the years go by. Large number of territorial disputes existing between the nations that specifically include the Asia Pacific and the MEA region are expected to fuel the overall demands for development and manufacture. Some of the chief countries involved in territorial disputes that utilize these drones for various operations include China, India, Iran, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, Taiwan, and Turkey. Some of the major economies that utilize these operational armed drones include Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, UK and the U.S. These countries are increasingly focusing on the development of these UAVs for domestic warfare and counter-insurgency, which are extensively used to monitor disputed areas and enhance the country security at a lower cost. The changing nature of next generation warfare will propel the global unmanned combat aerial vehicle market in the coming years.
Currently there are only a handful of countries, which possess this technology namely US of America, Israel, China, United Kingdom etc. The Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle Market has been growing at a tremendous pace, as is evidence by the large number of deals taking place in this sector.
