Demand for military unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, also known as military drones) will expand at a CAGR of 27.6% during the 2022~2025 period, from US$16.5 billion to US$34.3 billion, according to TrendForce.

This growth is the result of countries worldwide engaging in the R&D, procurement, and deployment of this kind of military equipment.

“The Russia-Ukraine conflict has demonstrated the effectiveness of military UAVs in combat. Besides providing immense capability for asymmetrical warfare, UAVs are shown to have a significant advantage over conventional weapons such as fighter planes and tanks in terms of the amount of time needed for outfitting, loading armaments, and initiating attacks, says TrendForce in their release.

“Moreover, military UAVs are able to stay in the sky many times longer than conventional military aircrafts, as observed in their performances in missions related to long-range reconnaissance and airstrike. On top of all these, the most important reason for using UAVs is the reduction of casualties on one’s own side while substantially improving the combat capabilities of small military units. In modern warfare, where precision in attacking targets and minimal casualty rate are emphasized, military UAVs have now emerged as the general trend.”
