Target Drones Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023
Global Target Drones Market by End-user (Defense, Homeland Security, Commercial), Platform (Aerial,
Ground, Underwater, and Sea Surface), Engine Type (IC, Jet, others), Target Type (Full & Sub-scaled, Free
Fly, Tow, Sport), & Region- Forecast till 2023
Target drone is a kind of unmanned aerial vehicle. Target drones can be used for ground targets, aerial targets, underwater
targets, and sea surface targets. It is popularly used in the defense industry mostly for training in anti-aircraft warfare.
Besides, it is used to simulate manned aircraft in radar, counter-air defense, and homeland security. In addition, the
application of target drones has increased necessity in military trainings related to anti-missile and anti-submarine and in
weapon calibration testing. The rising funds in the defense industry focused on training in several emerging nations is an
eminent factor boosting the target drones market. In several developing economies, line fit based target drones is
witnessing extensive acceptance due to their cost-effectiveness and wider accessibility in emerging regions. The growing
number of innovation and patent registrations in several developed nations is expected to emphasize the market.
Advancements in simulation technologies and the massive R&D capabilities being spent on developing these technologies
are notable factors increasing the market. As target drones are unmanned aerial vehicles they can be controlled by remote
and are mainly used in the defense. They are the alternatives for aerial targets mainly used in evaluation, testing, research
and development. The current target drones are used in radar and countermeasures in order to mimic the manned aircraft.
The rise in funds for training programs in the military across the world is expected to fuel the demand for target drones as
they are progressively being accepted in the defense sector for training. Furthermore, the rise in instances of political
terrorism, and maritime piracy have amplified the investments for realistic military training. However, lack of skilled
workforces to control and operate the target drones is expected to hamper the market during the forecast period.
The target drones market is estimated to witness a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period 2018-2023.

Segmentation and Regional Analysis
Based on the end user, the market can be segmented into defense, homeland security, and commercial. Defense segment is
estimated to be the major segment of the target drones market. Since target drones are majorly used for anti-aircraft, antimissile, and anti-submarine training in the defense sector. Target drones are similarly, also used for missile and weapon
calibration testing.
The target drones market can be segmented based on engine type, the target drones market can be split into IC engines, jet
engines, and others. The jet engine segment is foreseen to dominate the market during the forecast period due to the high
adoption rate of target drones in the military due to their high speed engine technologies. The fit market can be additional
segmented into customized fit and line fit. The line fit segment is expected to establish the largest market, as customized fit
is available only in the U.K and the U.S. Due to budget limitations in the defense in emerging countries, modification of
fighter aircraft is not possible as most of the countries obtain such aircraft from Russia and the U.S. and are not able to
change them into aerial targets. Consequently, the target drones in those countries are mostly line fit drones.
In terms of region, the target drones market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East
& Africa, and South America. North America is expected to account for the largest share of the target drones market during
the forecast period, owing to the rise in investment in defense training programs and the increase in budget allocated for
target drones in the U.S. Furthermore, in the U.S., old fighter aircraft are converted into aerial targets that help in missile
training, testing trainings, and simulating real-time threat scenarios for military anti-aircraft missile systems. Asia Pacific is
expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period from developing countries, such as India and China.
In developing nations, target drones lack scope of modification, as they are sourced from countries such as Russia and the
U.S. The NATO Missile Firing Installation (NAMFI) delivers an extensive firing range for target drones. Based in Souda Bay on
the island of Crete, Greece, their services are used by Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, and the U.S.
