UAV's - Drones 2030
UAV's - Drones, civil and military applications world markets 2014 to 2030

Technologies, Applications, Research, Markets, Developments, Companies, Countries, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in Civil and Military Applications
 Worldwide to 2030

I. Initial Situation

This is a new and fast developing business over 70 billion US $ by 2020 
worldwide in the whole value chain and not too many competitions today, 
from evironmental protection, fire protection to weapons. 

The Markets for drones increase fast with high growth rates in civil and 
military applications worldwide. Drones are relatively cheap civil instruments 
and military weapons and highly effective tools in both areas. 

​In 2015 over 20 countries develop and produce drones. Some in joint
venture like Germany, France, China. Some just buy drones from others,
like UK is the biggest importer in the world,
but will produce in the future. Military application lead but applications for
security, fire fighter, fire protection, pipeline control and inspection are on
th markets. 

The total markets in 2010 are 7.2 billion US $ with 85% in military 
applications and 15% in civil. The total markets by 2020 will be 18.0 billion 
with 35% in civil applications. Including engineering, service and operation 
the markets are 4 times higher. USA will hold 39% on the total markets, 
Europe 28% and Asian mainly China 20%, others the rest. The increase will be over 10 percent through 2020. This is a new market and industry. From small companies and start ups soon multinationals will enter the markets specially in civil applications. The markets are highly profitable, there is a pre-business and a after sales business. The after sales business is extremly profitable. The wide range of civil applications will lead to a large number of companies and competitions in the future and a limited number of research and development companies. China and India will play a leading consumer role, USA and Isreal in military and Germany in research and developments. All bigger electric/electronic companies, aircraft, security and mixed companies will be in this markets.

The main application are military, inspections, assessments and surveying, monitoring, search and surveillance, research activities such as aerial imaging, geological surveys, mapping and exploration, wildlife monitoring and spectroscopic measurements. Today there is no clear role and law and regulation in the most countries for the civil applications and they increase without control. New materials, new technologies and nano technologies make this market grow. Helmut Kaiser Consultancy is the only consultancy worldwide in this business since 1980 and more ...please see  

II. Goal of the Study and Benefits

Aim of the study is the analysis of the global markets and developments, research and development, the companies, organizations, branches and products. The years 2010 and 2011 are the basis, as well as the futher development to 2020 by year and prospects for 2030.

The study shows turnover, volume, potentials, product fields and products, applications, competitions, companies, countries, regions worldwide, profit potentials, value chains, reseach expenditures, investments, factors of success, stratagies and opportunities and risks. Including an evaluation of companies and prognosis for the markets in the US, Japan, Russia, China, India , Germany and 40 more Countries worldwide. 

The strategies of countries are evaluated with expenditures, markets and potential of employment and their opportunities and risks for the next years and decades. 

The study is suitable to check the state of research and development, drive innovations, check and compare the state of competitors and adjust and define the own strategies. This applies to companies, institutes, organizations, investors and countries or states, respectively.
