Military Robots Market size was reached USD 16.8 billion in 2021 and is slated to register a double digit CAGR of 9.7% over the period 2022-2029 and is projected to reach USD 35.2 billion in 2029.

Military Robots Trends and Drivers

Major factors driving Military Robots market includes the growing need for assistance by military robots in combat tasks along with the rising adoption of UAVs and USVs in the ISR. In addition, growing demand for military robots among defense forces driven by the benefits offered by these robots such as aid to soldiers on the battleground, help in search and rescue operations, disarm bombs will further propel the market growth. Rising government investment on strengthening the existing security infrastructure across the globe and rapid advancement in robotic technologies is expected to boost the military robots market. The leading players are investing on various R & D activities to innovate with the advanced technologies will create more growth opportunities for military robots. However, high cost of Military robots and strict regulations regarding technology sharing is hindering the Military Robots market growth.

Based on Platform, Land robots segment growing at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

Land robots segment is driven by the rising penetration for border security and battlefield engagement with the increasing terror attacks especially in US. For instance, Russian Defense Ministry introduced an separate unit of military robots comprises of 5 Uran-9 robotic systems in 2021.

Based on Mode of Operation, Autonomous segment is expected to increase in near future.

Rapid adoption of advance aerial robots along with the increasing demand among various application such as security, inspection, undersea surveillance, detection and anti-submarine warfare. Moreover, increasing adoption of technologies such as fiber optics tether, 3D imaging, among others. These factors are paving way for the Autonomous segment in the Military Robots market.

Based on Application, Mine Clearance segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR.

Increasing threats from IED along with the rising adoption of military robots in mine clearance to reduce the risk of unexploded ordnance and other dangerous objects. However, ISR is also gaining traction over the forecast period due to the increasing ISR activities across the North America and Asia regions.

Based on Region, Europe region is projected to grow at fastest rate in the Military Robots market.

Europe Military Robots market is driven by the increasing demand of military robots because of the advancement in the military technologies along with the rising adoption of military robots across European countries such as Germany, UK, France, among others. In addition, with the increasing investment and development of advanced ground robots among various applications like surveillance, combat and transportation applications, is expected to boost the growth of the Europe region.

Top Market Players
