Global Airborne Surveillance Market

Market Overview

Global airborne surveillance aims to provide early warning information relating to ground and marine surveillance such as border security, accidents, oil spills, land mapping and many more. Various aircrafts and other manned platforms are manufactured to provide with customizable equipment as per the mission of surveillance or they are pre-equipped for the specific missions. Airborne surveillance requires high capital investment, high maintenance and ground support to the personnel during surveillance, competitive operational, maintenance and logistics services. Thus global airborne surveillance market has high entry barriers for the new players. The national security being the prime motive of surveillance, aircrafts and drones shipment is growing at a rate of 4.1% annually. North America in order to keep checks on North Korea, it has deployed drones and surveillance aircrafts all around the North Korea Peninsula. In 2016, of the total production of aircrafts, 43.6% surveillance aircrafts were manufactured.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the global biopolymer packaging market size is set to reach USD 6.1billion by 2024 growing at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast years. The technological advancement in airborne surveillance system, real time information requirement for security and other purposes to take controlled step with the help of support services, mitigating rising accidents, are some of the factors that will push the market to grow as per the forecast.
