Global Solar Powered UAV Market Research Report

Regional Analysis
The global solar powered UAV market is estimated to witness 14.38% CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2023. In 2016, the market was led by North America with 34.90% share, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific with shares of 29.24% and 25.59%, respectively. The Asia Pacific region is becoming a lucrative region for the firms that provide solar powered UAVs, due to the significant demand from both defense and commercial sectors in countries such as China and South Korea. Meanwhile, North America dominated the solar powered UAV market in 2016, due to the increasing applications of UAVs in the military, homeland security, as well as commercial areas. The region also leads the global market in terms of expenditure and technological advancements and has a large number of deployments of UAVs in vulnerable regions. The U.S. generates very high demand for UAVs used for surveillance purposes. Though Canada made some considerable investments in the development of UAVs, the market is primarily dominated by the U.S. The U.S. is also the largest manufacturer of unmanned systems globally. The necessity for continual and superior ISR capability by the armed forces has stimulated the U.S. to invest substantially in the UAVs and related technologies. Moreover, companies in this region are focusing on developing High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) for enhancing connectivity. Therefore, it is expected that the market in North America would witness a CAGR of 14.80%, during the forecast period.
