India’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is emerging as a key market in Asia-Pacific region. India first introduced its long range line of UAVs in early 1990s for surveillance and reconnaissance missions. India’s UAV market is buoyed by several factors such as increasing terrorist activities, border security, rising defense budget, FDI, favorable government policies on import and increased domestic production campaigning for defense aircrafts and military equipment. India is one of the largest importers for defense equipment worldwide. Conversely, in the coming years, India is planning to rely comprehensively on its domestic production on military equipment.

In India’s UAV market, long range UAV with medium altitude & long endurance segment dominates the overall market in revenue terms. According to 6Wresearch, India UAV Market is projected to record $421 Million by 2021. Expected introduction of regulation by DGCA in 2016 would promote its penetration in civil application sector, retail and hospitality application sectors.

Amongst all applications, military application accounts for majority of the revenue share in India’s UAV market. Over the last three years, law enforcement application is witnessing higher deployment of mini-UAVs in Tier-I cities, on account of increasing crime rate. Furthermore, before the ban on the use of UAVs for civil application by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), mini-UAVs were used in events and photography.

Since 2008, India is witnessing steep incline towards acquisition of next generation military aircrafts and equipment on account of increasing terrorist activities and northern border tensions. India is amongst the emerging markets for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology, globally. India has placed itself amongst top & leading importers for defense equipment, worldwide. India was among few Asian countries which introduced long range UAVs in early 1990s for surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Owing to low government funding, India is slowly inducting UAVs in its military sector. However, with growing border tensions, terrorist activities and initiatives are taken by the government to promote domestic manufacturing demand for UAVs is expected to increase over the forecast period.

In India’s UAV market, Israel witnessed to have acquired majority of the market, with Israel being the largest importer. India owns over 45 Israel’s Heron UAV (Long Range UAVs- Medium Altitude & Long Endurance) and further expected to acquire 15-20 Heron UAVs over the next six years. Apart from Heron UAV, India also owns “Israel’s Searcher I, II & Heron UAVs, Defence Research & Development Organization’s (DRDO) Rustom-1 & Rustom-H and Nishant” long range UAVs. Additionally, demand for mini-UAVs would increase from 2016 onwards after the expected release on the ban imposed by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for civil application. In medium range UAVs, India and U.S. would jointly manufacture AeroVironment’s “Raven UAV” ranging from 5mi and above from 2015 onwards in Bengaluru based production facility.
