NEW YORK. The market for counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems, valued at $1.9 billion in 2021, is expected to grow at a CAGR [combined annual growth rate] of 14.7% over the next seven years, to be worth $5.02 billion by 2028, according to a new study from The Insight Partners, “Counter UAV Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis." 

The study authors found that counter-UAV systems are among the key components of soldier modernization, which will continue to be a major trend around the world. Militaries that invest in modernizing soldiers will equip troops with advanced combat capabilities, including modern vehicle fleets and countermeasure solutions, which will include counter-UAV systems. 

Also included in the study: Counter-UAV technology relies on various techniques for detecting or intercepting drones, whether radio frequency (RF), electro-optical, or infrared detection; subsequent destruction of UAVs may use such tactics as RF jamming, GNSS jamming, spoofing, laser, nets, projectiles, or combined interdiction elements.
