Military Robots refers to the autonomous robots that are specifically designed for different military applications, such as transport, search & rescue and attack. These robots are acts as an alternative to human soldiers and are capable of managing a broader range of combat operations, such as picking off snipers, and carrying out target acquisitions with greater efficiency as compared to human soldiers. Military robots are deployed in dangerous area to analyse the situation in real-time accident scene where troops can be killed. These robots come in different sizes and shapes, depending on the requirement and application.
The major factors that are driving the growth of the Global Military Robots market include the increasing requirement for assistance by military robots in combat tasks, increasing benefits offered by military robots in hazardous and extreme conditions, and the growing enhancement in ISR and target acquisition using robots. The increasing adoption of UAVs and USVs in the ISR will have a positive impact of the growing demand of the market. The increasing demand for military robots among numerous defence forces driven by its exceptional advantages such as situational awareness, aid to soldiers on the battleground, disarm bombs, as well as help in search and rescue operations, will drastically boost the market growth. Moreover, the rising advancement in robotics technologies, and growing development and innovation in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are also expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. However, strict regulation for technology sharing, growing scepticism associated with the usage of automated weaponized robots coupled with the high cost of military robots are restraining the growth of the market.
Based on Platform, the land robots segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increasing penetration of land robots for security of border, and battlefield engagement along with the growing terrorist attack across the globe, especially in the U.S.
Based on the Application, the mine clearance segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR in the market during the forecast period owing to the rising threat from IED across the globe and increase adoption of military robots in mine clearance to reduce the risk of unexploded ordnance and other dangerous objects. Remotely Operated vehicles (ROVs) and land robots are being widely adopted for mine clearance operation.
Based on the region, Europe is projected to grow at a higher CAGR in the global Military Robots market during the forecast period owing to the growing demand for the military robots due to rising advancement in military technologies and increase adoption of these technologies by military of European countries such as Germany, France, U.K. among others. Moreover, the rising investment and development of advanced ground robots for various application such as transportation, surveillance, and combat applications will further fuel the growth of the market.
The major key players in the market include Northrop Grumman Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Endeavor Robotics, Qinetiq, Cobham plc, Elbit Systems Ltd., Aerovironment, Inc., General Dynamics Corporation, Israel Aerospace Industries LTD., Thales Group, Aerovironment, Inc., Bae Systems among others.
- In 2017, Northrop Grumman entered into USD 304 Million US Contract For Three Maritime Surveillance Drones.
