Amidst Postponed U.S. Defense Budget Cuts, Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Payload Market to Reach $68.6 billion by 2022

FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The two month postponement of the "fiscal cliff's" automatic spending cuts, including cuts to America's defense budget originally proposed by last year's sequestration deal, may be welcome news for the nation's military sector. However, while many pundits still believe that defense budget cuts are likely inevitable, certain segments have little cause to worry, as they will remain mostly unaffected by any revisions to the budget, including the UAV sector.

 In fact, the global UAV payload market, valued at approximately $43.7 billion at the end of 2012, is estimated to increase to $68.6 billion by 2022, representing a compound annual growth rate of 4.6% during the forecast period. Market demand is anticipated to be driven by increased UAV procurement by several countries across the world and continuous requirement formulations in areas such as persistent surveillance, suppression/destruction of enemy air defense (SEAD/DEAD), communications relays and combat search and rescue (CSAR). Another major factor which is expected to drive the market over the forecast period is the increasing incorporation of UAVs in civilian applications such as Homeland Security, disaster management and border surveillance.
