According to a new market research report "Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Market (2013-2018)", authored by MarketsandMarkets, the total global UAV market (2013-2018) is expected to reach $8,351.1 million by 2018 with a CAGR of 3.30%.

US has by far been the superior force when it comes to deployment of UAVs in the world; European deployment is rather different than in US with extensive usage of TUAVs and fewer HALE and MALE systems. SUAVs have seen a robust growth due to their widespread applications. Apart from US, the countries which have shown major interest in UAVs are as follows: Braziland Argentina in Latin America; UK, France and Germany in Europe; South Africa in Africa; Israel and UAE in Middle East; India,Australia, Japan and South Korea in APAC. Russia too has an in-depth UAV program, but its success levels have been limited.

In addition to the Military Market, the market for civilian and commercial unmanned air vehicles is growing. Civilian UAV market refers to UAV's operated by non-military government. Civilian usage of UAVs is present in Australia, France, South Africa,Sweden and US. With FAA regulation until 2015, civilian UAV's market will grow at a slower rate when compared to military and security applications. USA and EU are looking at policies by which they can allow the usage of UAV's in the National Airspaces.

The Global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Market (2013-2018) revenue is expected to grow from $7,098.6 million in 2013 to $8,351.1 million by 2018.
