New build segment is estimated to lead the target drones market across the forecast period
Based on build, the new build segment is projected to lead with the highest growth rate across the forecast period. Unmanned vehicles that are manufactured for the purpose of being used as targets fall under the category of new build drones. Owing to the limited defense budget allocation in emerging economies, full-scale customization of fighter aircraft is not feasible. As most emerging economies procure fighter aircraft from the US and Russia, they cannot afford to convert them into aerial targets.
Subscale segment is estimated to surge with prominent growth rate in target drones market across the forecast period
Based on target type, the subscale segment is estimated to surge with the highest growth rate across the forecast period. Subscale target drones range from low subsonic speed drones to supersonic speed drones and are used by military forces worldwide for weapons testing and training requirements.
