Semi & Fully Autonomous Technology to Grow Rapidly Owing to Advancements

In terms of technology, the UAV market is categorized into semi-autonomous, remotely operated, and fully-autonomous. Amongst these, the remotely operated technology holds the highest UAV market share at present. It is because remotely operated drones are used beyond the visual line of sight to perform numerous operations. Additionally, those drones are capable of emergency handover between control channels as well as emergency landing.

The semi-autonomous and fully-autonomous technologies are anticipated to exhibit astonishingly high CAGRs during the forthcoming years. The demand for semi-autonomous technology will rise due to the emergence of new application areas. Fully-autonomous technology, on the other hand, will showcase high demand due to its innovative features, namely, waypoint flight and stability enhancement.

Requirement of UAVs for Marine & Border Surveillance Activities to Favor Growth in North America

The UAV market is geographically divided into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. Out of these regions, North America is projected to lead the market during the forecast period. It is likely to occur due to a rise in the adoption of UAVs for border and marine surveillance activities.
