Counter-drones Market Dynamics
Counter-drone technology, also known as counter-UAS, C-UAS, anti-drone, or counter-UAV technology, refers to systems that are used to detect and/or disable unmanned aircraft. As concerns mount around the potential security threats that drones may pose to civilian and military entities, a new market for counter-drone technology is rapidly emerging.
The market faces significant challenges from interdiction hazards and privacy concerns which are expected to impact growth over the forecast period. Some interdiction techniques might be dangerous if deployed in populated areas. Drones intercepted by kinetic means can crash with considerable force. Further, net-based systems equipped with a parachute involves a risk if the parachute fails to deploy correctly or if the interdiction occurs at a low altitude. Counter-drone systems are a form of surveillance technology and pose a risk to privacy if misused or if the data they collect is mismanaged.

Counter-drones Market Report Highlights
- The global counter-drones market is projected to witness a CAGR of 19.3% from 2023 to 2026. A significant increase in demand for counter-drones is due to the commercialization of drones, increasing defense spending on procurement and R&D of counter-drones by major countries, and rising geopolitical tensions across the world.
- In 2022, the radar segment captured a significant share with a market size projected to exceed $600 million by 2026 at a CAGR of more than 17% from 2023 to 2026.
- Detection & tracking is expected to be the highest application category for the counter-drones market.
- The civilian market represents a significant opportunity for producers given the ready availability of commercial UAVs and security breaches in major countries. As such, potential customers for C-UAS systems include, but are not limited to, the defense sector, national governments, private security, stadiums/amusement parks/public arenas, airports and transportation hubs, petroleum/chemical/electric grids, and nuclear and chemical installations, among other state and private security bodies.
- North America, followed by Asia-Pacific, captured over 60% of the overall counter-drone demand in 2022. Growing geopolitical unrest along the borders of Asian countries will favor the proliferation of the counter-drones market in the Asia Pacific market.
- The key counter-drones market players analyzed in this report include Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd., Dedrone Inc, D-Fend Solutions AD Ltd, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd., Raytheon Technologies Corp., Leonardo SpA, Lockheed Martin Corp., Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd, CACI International Inc, and Northrop Grumman Corp., among others.
