The new “Global Electric Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Market 2014-2018” research report from ReportsnReports.com precicts that a “rise in commercial use will drive growth in the electric unmanned aerial vehicles market by 2019.” According to this electric unmanned aerial vehicles market (UAV) report, the industry will grow at 18.20% CAGR for 2013-2018.

The cost-effectiveness of electric UAVs is a major draw for buyers in this market. In addition, increased interest in the usage of UAVs for commercial applications and the demand for small electric UAVs will also drive market growth through the projected period. Currently, the U.S. leads the market in terms of UAV production and use. However, there has also been a rise in demand from emerging markets, primarily in the Middle East and Asia to include Israel, Russia, the U.K., France, Italy, and China.

While the Middle East has emerged as the one of the regions with the highest demand for commercial UAVs, there are many emerging countries who are engaging small electric UAVs in various military and civilian operations. With improvements in technology and the availability of cost-effective systems, developing countries are looking to utilize such UAVs for tactical and surveillance purposes.

UAVs, also referred to as drones, are aerial vehicles without a human pilot aboard. The vehicle is controlled either autonomously by an on-board computer or by a remote control from the ground or on another vehicle. UAVs range in sizes. Large UAVs are used for tactical missions that are powered by internal combustion engines. Small electric-powered UAVs are primarily used for military and defense applications, and are driven by electric motors. Without combustion, these electric-powered UAVs are quiet and found more suitable for spy missions. Also, there has been an increase in interest for commercial applications of UAVs like aerial photography, agriculture, 3D mapping, wildlife protection, etc.
