The market report details the growth prospects with a total of 177 market data tables and 50 figures spread across 201 pages, along with an in-depth Table of Content available on the official website.

By payload capacity, the medium segment (20 kg to 40 kg) is anticipated to lead the market during the forecast period. The growing applications of target drones, equipped with various payloads such as identification friend or foe, passive & active radar augmentation, infrared augmentation, and electronic payloads, among others, are driving the demand for these medium-capacity drones.

The report also highlights the mode of operation, indicating that the remotely piloted segment is expected to have the highest share during the forecast period.

The US navy's focus on the development of UAVs, along with the growth of the commercial drone fleet, is anticipated to contribute significantly to market growth in the region.
