The global anti-drone market size is expected to reach USD 4.5 billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 29.9% from 2019 to 2026, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The industry is rapidly growing due to rising concerns over the potential security threats from unauthorized aircrafts systems among both the civilian and military sectors. Increasing number of security violation incidents by such unauthorized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), coupled with the rise in terrorism and illegal activities, has majorly driven the market over the last few years.
There has been a sharp rise in the adoption of UAVs for professional and leisure applications, which has resulted in the increasing concerns regarding aerial attacks among public and government. Such threats have contributed significantly towards the evolution of counter-drone measures. Several public safety departments as well as commercial establishments across the globe are increasingly deploying anti-drone systems in order to address the growing need for security.
UAVs are increasingly used for various illicit and undercover activities, such as smuggling contraband and spying. Although several prototypes have been developed to counter one UAV at a time, prominent manufacturers in the market are focusing on developing advanced solutions to counter simultaneous threats from multiple aircraft systems.
