The development of advanced counter-drone technologies has become critical, owing to the exponential rise in the illegal entry of drones in security-critical places such as military bases. The need for drone defense systems is rising with the advancements in drones for checking the illegal entry of drones and countering potential drone attacks. Several nations around the world have launched and implemented policies related to countering unmanned aerial systems. A drone defense system involves drone monitoring equipment, radio frequency (RF) analyzers, acoustic sensors, optical sensors, radars, RF jammers, and high-energy lasers to detect and/or destroy unauthorized drones.

Dramatic rise has been witnessed in the adoption of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for surveillance, recreational, and commercial applications across the world. The absence of security protocols and standards has resulted in a tremendous rise in the instances related to a security breach at military bases, government establishments, and public places. Furthermore, surge in demand for detection and identification of illegal drones has become a key factor to ensure overall national security, thus fueling the growth of the global drone defense system market. 

The global drone defense system market segmentation into end user, technology, application, and region. On the basis of end user, the is segregated into military, homeland security, and commercial. Depending on technology, it is categorized into identification & detection systems and countermeasure systems. By application, it is fragmented into drone mounting and ground station. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Furthermore, falling prices of drones and their easy availability to public acts as the key driving forces of the market. In addition, increase in adoption of advanced drones to carry out aerial surveillance at restricted areas and public gatherings such as political rallies, sporting events, smuggling, terror missions, and other illegal activities boosts the market growth. In the last couple of years, the world has witnessed an increasing number of drones-related incidents globally. For instance, countries such as the UK, Saudi Arabia, France, the U.S., India, Spain, and Germany have witnessed aerial surveillance done by unverified drones, attacks on oil reserves, and arms & ammunitions dropping. Such incidents have experienced an exponential growth over the last five years, which notably augment the drone defense system market growth. 

With upsurge in manufacturing of drones throughout the world, adverse events are likely to increase exponentially, and it is of paramount importance for governments to safeguard their borders, people, and assets from the evolving nature of threats. If gone unchecked, drone-related threats may result in immense financial implications and loss of many lives throughout the world. Thus, rise in in malicious drone-related incidents has led to increase in use of drone defense technologies, which can spot and destroy the drones or make them nonfunctional. This acts as a major factor that fuels the growth of the global drone defense system market. Moreover, various companies have a wide range of counter-drone technologies that can detect, classify, alert, and destroy any foreign drones, which is anticipated to propel the market growth during the forecast period. 

Counter-drone technologies have been introduced to help nations to offer protection against the rise in instances of drones being used for unlawful activities. However, certain limitations are associated with the use of these technologies in detecting and destroying drones. For instance, radar is a suitable instrument used for the detection of aircraft. However, multiple challenges with the usage of radars for detecting drones limit their adoption across the globe. For instance, the nature of the drone’s low altitude and speed of flying as well as small radar cross-section (RCS) make it hard to differentiate noise or clutter from the actual target. Currently, the challenges being encountered regarding counter-drone technology are multiple as drone technology is itself evolving at a rapid rate. Reconnaissance, intelligence, surveillance & target acquisition (RISTA) as well as drone defense system systems will have to function as a single unit to handle the risks associated with both standalone and drone swarms. Furthermore, technical challenges get intensified when authorities try to spot and restrict drone swarms in which it will not be necessary that all drones have a detectable radio frequency (RF) signature. These issues related to the counter-drone technologies are anticipated to hamper the growth of the global drone defense system market.
