Dublin - April 4, 2018 ( Newswire) The "Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market Research Report, Insights, Opportunity Analysis, Market Shares and Forecast, 2017 - 2023" report has been added to's offering.

Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.51 % during the forecast period 2016-2023

Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) market is mainly driven by increasing demand for UAVs in commercial applications and enhanced capabilities of UAVs to fight terrorism. However, regulatory policies & procedural issues acts as a major restraint for the global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) market.

Geographically, North America holds the largest market share in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market due to increased application in military, home-security and commercial areas. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is expected to grow with the highest growth rate owing to the growing trend of globalization & automation and instability due to internal political tensions.

Furthermore, the ongoing tensions among the countries over the Doklam and South China Sea along with the growing concerns of security and terrorism are projected to boost the demand of drones(UAVs) especially in military applications in this region.

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) market is also led by the presence of major players such as Northrop Grumman (U.S), Textron Inc (U.S), IAI Ltd (Israel), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S), The Boeing Company (U.S), AeroVironment Inc (U.S), Parrot S.A (France), SZ DJI Technology Co Ltd (China) and others. Product launches, mergers & acquisitions etc. are some crucial strategies adopted by the major players to gain competitive advantage.

For Instance: On September 2017, Northrop Grumman has acquired Orbital ATK for approx. $ 9.2 billion which helps the company to expand its global presence so as to capture the market share. This acquisition would help the company to expand capabilities and greater competition in critical global security domains.
