Global UAS Traffic Management (UTM) System Market: Introduction

  • An unmanned aircraft system (UAS) traffic management system is a traffic management ecosystem for uncontrolled operations. Increasing operational activities of drones is one of the major factors fueling the demand for UAS traffic management systems. Currently, UAS traffic management system is undergoing the developing stage. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is researching on a prototype technology for UAS traffic management, which would help manage low-altitude operations.

Global UAS Traffic Management (UTM) System Market: Dynamics

Increasing UAV/drone activities fuel demand for UAS traffic management systems

  • Several beneficial applications of UAVs or drones, such as delivery of goods, infrastructure surveillance, search, and rescue, and agriculture monitoring, have driven the demand for UAV or drones in various applications. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, in 2017, there were 1.1 million drones in the U.S. and the number is expected to reach 2 million by the end of 2019. This increasing adoption of UAVs/drones has raised air traffic, which is boosting the demand for UAS traffic management systems. 

North America to hold a major share of global UAS traffic management (UTM) system market

  • Based on region, the global UAS traffic management (UTM) system market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America held a dominant share of the global UAS traffic management (UTM) system market in 2018, followed by Europe, and the trend is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. The U.S. and Canada are major countries of the market in the region. Increasing use of drones and presence of leading players, such as AirMap Inc., Harris Corporation, and Lockheed Martin, are responsible for leading position of North America in the global UAS traffic management (UTM) system market.
  • The UAS traffic management (UTM) system market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. India, China, Japan, and Australia are some of the key countries of the market in the region.

Logistics & transportation segment to hold a major market share

  • Based on application, the global UAS traffic management (UTM) system market has been divided into logistics & transportation, military & security agencies, agriculture & forestry, and others (including firefighting and weather forecasting). The logistics & transportation segment held a major market share in 2018 and it is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. Growing adoption of small unmanned aerial systems (UASs) by companies operating in the retail & e-commerce sector has fueled the logistics & transportation segment of the global UAS traffic management (UTM) system market.
