Global Target Drones Market is segmented by end user, engine type, platform type, and target type.

By end user, the global market can be segmented into defense, homeland security, and commercial. The defense segment is expected to dominate the global target drones market. This can be attributed to the use of drones for anti-aircraft, anti-missile, and anti-submarine military training in the defense sector. Its need for testing new weapons can drive the segment growth.

By platform type, it is segmented into ground targets, sea surface targets, underwater targets, and aerial targets.

Based on engine type, the Global Target Drones Market can be segmented into jet engines, IC engines, and others. The jet engine segment is expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period due to its high adoption in the military.

By target type, it is segmented into towing, sporting, full-scaled, semi-scaled, and free flying.

Regional Analysis

North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA) are regions considered for the target drones’ market.

North America is expected to hold the largest share of the target drones market during the forecast period, owing to the rising investment in training programs in the defense and the increased budget allocated for target drones in the U.S. Customization of drones for military purposes is predicted to drive regional market growth. Furthermore, in the US, old fighter planes are converted into aerial targets for missile training and testing training and also mimic real-time threat scenarios for military anti-aircraft. The use of drones for smuggling and trespassing over the border can bode well for the global target drones market growth.

APAC is expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period from developing countries such as India and China. In growing nations, target drones can lack modification as they are sourced from countries such as Russia and the US. Integration of radar and acoustic based technologies for sensing aircraft can work in training of aircraft crews. Rise of indigenous missile production and testing of new weapons can fuel the demand for target drones.
