$4.48 Billion Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) Market by Mobility, Application, Size, Mode of Operation, System – Global Forecast to 2030 – ResearchAndMarkets.com


DUBLIN–()–The “Global Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) Market by Mobility (Wheeled, Tracked, Hybrid, Legged), Application (Commercial, Military, Law Enforcement, Federal Law Enforcement), Size, Mode of Operation, System, and Region – Forecast to 2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global unmanned ground vehicles market is estimated to grow from USD 2,273 million in 2020 to USD 4,484 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period.

Unmanned ground vehicles or UGVs were earlier used mainly in the defense sector but are now finding applications in the civil and commercial sectors as well. Ranging from micro to large, UGVs are used for various functions, such as demining, surveillance, data acquisition, warfare, agriculture, logistics, and firefighting, among others. Extensive research & development in the field of virtualization and robotics is being undertaken to make advanced versions of UGVs available for these applications.

The increasing demand for UGVs in the commercial and defense sectors and technological innovations that have created a demand for UGVs for the performance of complex operations with minimal human intervention and greater safety are the major factors driving the unmanned ground vehicles market. The success of UGVs in combat operations has proven their reliability in emergency situations, which is also expected to drive the adoption of UGVs in the Asia Pacific region.

On the other hand, reducing defense budgets in the North American and European countries are expected to hamper the growth of this market. Other major restraints in the unmanned ground vehicles market include the limited endurance of batteries and incapability in performing missions for long durations.
