The rise in government funding for military drones and the growing demand for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance assets among armed forces are expected to drive the demand for the global military drone market in the forecast period, 2023-2027.
According to TechSci Research report, “Military Drone Market – Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2017-2027”, the global military drone market is anticipated to witness robust growth in the forecast period, 2023-2027. Several countries witness border disputes due to disagreement and possession about the control of land between two states. In some past years, countries have faced territorial issues in countries like China, Nepal, Bangladesh, Syria, Russia, and Israel, amongst others. These countries spend exorbitant amounts to purchase surveillance drones to enhance situational awareness and modernize the patrolling techniques. The growing focus on lower operational costs and the number of causalities in hard-to-reach locations is expected to fuel the sales of military drones across the globe.
However, the high cost associated with modern systems and advanced electronics may restrain the global military drone market growth in the forecast period.

The global military drone market is segmented into product type, technology, altitude, range, weight, regional distribution, and competitive landscape.
Based on product, the market is divided into fixed wing, rotary wing, and hybrid. Fixed wing aircraft are expected to hold the largest market share in the forecast period, 2023-2027. The military and defense sector has a high demand for fixed wing aircraft. The main advantage of fixed-wing aircraft is their capacity to cover large distances on a single battery and, therefore, can be used for surveillance and monitoring processes. In case of complete failure, fixed wing military drones can still continue flying and land safely without power. The most advanced and powerful unmanned aerial vehicles are constructed in fixed-wing structures as the fixed wing aircraft have excellent aerodynamics. The advantages offered by fixed wing aircraft are expected to accelerate the segment demand over the next five years.
Based on technology, the market is divided into remotely operated drones, semi-autonomous drone, and autonomous drone. Remotely operated drones are expected to capture the highest market share in the forecast period. Majority of the unmanned aerial vehicles are remotely operated due to stringent government regulations for long-range autonomous flight. Remote controlling technology is used in telemetry systems and in command-and-control systems to maneuver the drones based on their requirements remotely.
Based on range, the market is divided into the visual line of sight (VLOS), extended visual line of sight (EVLOS), and beyond line of sight (BLOS). The extended visual line of sight (EVLOS) segment is expected to capture the highest market share in the forecast period. The rise in the use of extended visual line of sight unmanned aerial vehicle applications for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance applications is driving the segment demand.
