The following figure illustrates the estimated and forecasted market volume of UAVs from 2014 to 2020.

Major technological as well as financial advantages of UAVs over their counterparts are driving the UAV market globally. Despite the number of regulations laid down by governmental institutions and FAA over using UAVs in commercial spaces, the UAV manufacturers were successful in launching the UAVs in various applications such as agriculture, mining, photography, filming, product delivery, wildlife research and monitoring, and oil & gas pipeline inspection among others.

The report also provides a detailed analysis of UAV market in different segments such as market by class, by application, by payload, and by geography. A summary of the complete report is briefed in this chapter, giving a detailed insight on different segments of the UAV market. 

The key drivers that will augment the demand for UAVs includes factors such as ongoing conflicts and terrorist attacks, increasing demand for actionable intelligence, need for precision farming and hyper spectral imagery, and the penetration of UAVs in various civil applications. Despite to these, the high accident rates of UAVs, and government regulations on the use of UAVs and their export has restraint the growth of the market to some extent.

An in-depth analysis of UAV applications for all regions has been covered in this report. The geographic segmentation covers major regions including North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific which are major hubs for UAV manufacturers and payload integrators.
