Global remote sensing UAV market: Importance of 3D printing technology

The use of 3D printing in production refers to the process of combining consecutive layers of materials using computerized control technology to create an object or component. This technology enables manufacturers to design and manufacture small and micro-components of various shapes and sizes thereby allowing producers to reduce the overall weight of the components. Additionally, the method also provides cost-efficient and just-in-time production of parts.

“Defense and commercial agencies are leveraging the use of 3D printing technologies to design and develop small UAVs that can be used for surveillance and reconnaissance operations. In 2016, the US DoD initiated the development and testing of micro-UAVs produced using 3D printing technology,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.

Global remote sensing UAV market: Segmentation analysis

This market research report segments the global remote sensing UAV market by application (defense, and commercial and civil) and by geographical regions (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).

In terms of revenue, the defense segment contributed more than the commercial and civil segment in 2017. However, the commercial and civil segment is expected to experience a faster growth rate during the forecast period owing to the growing need to monitor geographical areas.

The Americas led the market with the largest share in 2017, accounting for more than 52% of the market followed by EMEA and APAC. Although APAC held the smallest share of the market it is expected to witness the maximum increase in its market share over the forecast period.
