The advancements in the UAV technology will also foster the military drone market growth. The integration of advanced machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence in the drones will fuel their demand for traffic monitoring, surveillance, and spy applications. For instance, the U.S. Customs and Border protection is using drones for monitoring the Mexican-American Border and the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are using drones for law enforcement and protection. However, the safety and security issues associated with the use of drones and stringent government regulations across the countries are estimated to hinder the military drone market growth.

The military drone market adoption for border patrolling applications is gaining momentum due to their capability to effectively monitor borders without serious collateral damages and ensuring the safety of the border security personnel. In September 2017, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency began testing small drones for border surveillance in operational sectors in Arizona, Texas, and Vermont. The drones were evaluated for their capabilities for intelligence, reconnaissance, surveillance, tracking, and acquisition in regions that are at a high risk for ground personnel and manned aircraft. In November 2017, the Indian Army to maintain a strict vigil at the China and Pakistan border accepted tender inquiries for acquiring 600 mini UAVs. Due to consistent infiltration bids at the Pakistan border, UAVs will be procured for the infantry battalions of the Indian Army.
 

Asia Pacific military drone market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17% during the forecast period. The growth of the market is attributed to the growing demand for the drones from the developing economies including India and China. China accounts for more than 50% share in the Asia Pacific market, driven by the increasing investments by the Chinese government for the procurement of the drones.
