Anti-drone technology refers to specific systems used to detect or intercept unmanned aircrafts. These systems are also known as counter-UAV (counter- unmanned aerial vehicles), counter-UAS, C-UAS. Anti drone technology is deployed for protecting areas for instance critical infrastructure, airports, and large public spaces like stadiums, military installations and battlefield sites.
Modern anti drone radar systems may use various radar technologies, including staring radar, ESA (electronically scanned array) and micro-Doppler that depend on requirements for range, number of simultaneous targets to track, size of protection zone, and ability to deal with environmental clutter. They provide three-dimensional (3D) airspace tracking and utilize sophisticated signal processing techniques to perfectly detect and identify drones.
According to study, “Asia-Pacific Anti-Drone Market by Platform Type, Application, Technology, Vertical, and Country 2019-2026: Trend Forecast and Growth Opportunity” the key companies operating in the Asia-Pacific anti-drone market are Thales Group, Saab AB, Raytheon Co., Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd., Lockheed Martin Corp., Theiss UAV Solutions, LLC, Security and Counterintelligence Group, BSS Holland BV, Prime Consulting & Technologies, Dedrone, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd, DroneShield Ltd., Liteye Systems, Inc., and among others. Key players are focusing on increasing their customer base across the foreign countries. These players are leveraging on considered mutual initiatives to boost their market shares & profitability.
By type, Asia-Pacific anti-drone market is segmented as neutralizing system and detection system. Neutralizing system segment includes jamming, drone rifles, interception, drone capture nets, laser, and others. Detection system segment includes radar-based, acoustics, passive optics, active optics, RF emissions and others. Neutralizing segment holds major share in global market as it used for identification, detection, and classification of UAVs, and to undergo the neutralization steps to counter the unauthorized drones. In addition, by application, market is segmented as military & defense, commercial (critical infrastructure, public venues, and others), and homeland security. Military & defense sector is expected to exhibit substantial growth rate due to increase in research & development (R&D) activities by defense prime contractors and rise in the use of UAVs for smuggling & border trespassing during the forecast period.
The Asia-Pacific anti-drone market is driven by increase in usage of anti-drone technology to neutralize the drones, followed by rise in concerns about the potential security threats of drones and tremendous growth in military & defense spending. However, organizational challenges to regulatory enforcement & compliance may impact the market.
Based on geography, the Asia-Pacific region is bifurcated as Japan, China, Australia, South Korea, India and rest of region. Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit the fastest growth owing to increase in government spending on the development of aerospace & defense infrastructure across various countries, such as China and India over the forecast period. In addition, numerous institutions & companies across the region are forming collaborative partnerships to focus on the Research & Development (R&D) of counter-UAS technologies, instigating the immense potential to the regional market size. It is estimated that Asia-Pacific anti-drone market will be reached at US $727.2 million, by 2026, at a CAGR of 26.8% yearly.
