"Increased cost savings is one of the significant factors driving the autonomous aircraft market"
The autonomous aircraft market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 3.6 billion in 2018 to 23.7 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 17.06% from 2018 to 2030. This growth can be attributed to increased cost savings, reduction in human error due to increased autonomy, and advancements in artificial intelligence. However, the safety level of autonomous systems during emergency situations is expected to restrain the growth of this market.
Based on autonomy component, the propulsion system segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Growth of this segment can be attributed to the advancements in propulsion technology to result in minimum or zero emission, and its capability to work autonomously.
North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous aircraft market in 2018. Major aircraft manufacturers, such as Boeing (US), Lockheed Martin (US), Bell Helicopter (US), and The Raytheon Company (US), among others, are based in this region, and thus generate high demand for autonomous aircraft. North America is projected to lead the autonomous aircraft market during the forecast period, in terms of market share. Rest of the World is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Rest of the World consists of region including Middle East, Africa and Latin America, Growth is largely due to an increase in autonomous aircraft for air medical services in Africa. Along with this, the rise in urban air mobility in countries such as Dubai, where regulatory bodies are working in favor of commercialization of these technologies, is resulting in high growth of Rest of the World.
