Defence robotics market driven by the imminent benefits provided on the warfront

Industry Sector

Type of News


The defence robotics market has been forecast to increase from a valuation of $5.8 billion in 2010, to hit a market value of $7.5 billion by the year 2018.

Key factors influencing growth within the defence robotics market include rapid technological developments, imminent benefits on the warfront, increased Government spending, technological maturity, and enhanced cost-benefit ratio.

Robots are playing a major role in automating the modern battleground, reducing human deployment and thereby lowering casualties.

Advanced sensor technologies enable robots to spot threats more easily than humans, enhancing the capabilities of combatants and surveillance operatives in land, aerial and marine environments.

Between 50 and 80 countries either already utilise defence robotic systems, or are in the process of building or acquiring the technology to incorporate them into their military programs. These robots may take the form of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), and even unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), but they all have in common the purpose of taking the place of, or supplementing, humans in battlefield situations.Defence Robotics

The US is the pioneer, and the most technologically advanced region within the defence robotics sector. The region represents the unchallenged market leader, capturing the largest slice of the world market. The Asia-Pacific market, buoyed by strong appetite for the technology from Japan, South Korea, China, and India, represents a strong contender and is anticipated to expand at a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 8% through 2018.
