Fixed-Wing VTOL UAV Market to Surpass US$ 4490.55 Million by 2030, Says The Brainy Insights.
NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 26, 2022 – As per the report published by The Brainy Insights, the global fixed-wing VTOL UAV market is expected to grow from USD 750 million in 2021 to USD 4490.55 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 22% during the forecast period 2022-2030.
Fixed-wing VTOL UAVs are used in various industries, including real estate, mining, oil & gas, agriculture, and environmental protection. They are employed for land mapping, crop monitoring, and land surveying in agriculture. UAVs are now engaged in the business sector to deliver products. They are used to keep an eye on protected wildlife areas to preserve them from anthropogenic deterioration and devastation. Additionally, the military employs them for border control strategies in defense. The global capital investment in UAV research, development, and production has expanded due to the expanding number of applications.
The fixed-wing VTOL UAV market will be driven by a rise in research & development due to the expanding number of applications. There has been a growth in research and development of better UAVs with greater quality, and safety, as a result of the growing concerns about the rising accidents of fixed-wing VTOL UAVs globally. With more R&D being done globally, the integration of AI into fixed-wing VTOL UAVs is also gaining ground. With superior vision and navigation, AI enables fixed-wing VTOL UAVs to broaden their surveillance capabilities and enhance target recognition. The market will experience excellent growth possibilities during the projection period, given the rising technological developments and product breakthroughs. However, the lack of skilled operators to carry out UAV flights will hamper the market’s growth. Also, due to the lack of skilled operators, there is a rise in the number of UAV-related accidents resulting in a ban of UAVs from civil airspace. The prohibition of UAVs in civil airspace will challenge the market’s growth. Developing fully autonomous UAVs to reduce the need for skilled operators and decrease drone accidents will help market players overcome these restraints and challenges.
To enhance their market position in the global fixed-wing VTOL UAV market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships.
UMSSKELDAR, a joint venture between UMS AERO GROUP and defense firm Saab AB, was launched in February 2020. The business introduced the Skeldar V-150, a new unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). It is intended to support tactical operations for military, homeland security, emergency response, and surveillance. The vehicle has two payload bays and can run for more than four hours. These features allow for tremendous versatility in accommodating different sensor combinations.
Market Growth & Trends
The fixed-wing VTOL UAV industry will grow and develop as the demand for remotely controlled runaway-less unmanned aerial vehicles increases. The cost-effective fixed-wing VTOL UAVs are faster, more efficient, and environmentally sustainable, given they need less fuel compared to conventional aircraft carriers. These benefits contribute to its rising demand across industries ranging from agriculture to defense for surveys, imaging, mapping, monitoring, surveillance, and other critical operations. Governments and private market participants collaborating to develop the fixed-wing VTOL UAV market will also provide profitable opportunities for the market during 2022-30. The fixed-wing VTOL UAV market will increase due to the growing trend of deploying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for sensitive remote missions in the defense sector. UAVs save money, time, and the lives of personnel. Integrating advanced avionics to improve fixed-wing VTOL UAVs’ safety and quality standards will also boost the market during the forecast period.
