Global Autopilot Systems Market to Grow at 5.9% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Expanding Applications

Published on Jun 01, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Autopilot Systems Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global autopilot systems market reached a value of US$ 4.1 Billion in 2021. Autopilot systems are flight control systems that automate the process of guiding the trajectory of an aircraft or aerial vehicle across the automotive, military and aerospace industries. They consist of a computer system, actuator, avionic system and GPS technology to assist human operators in controlling the vehicle. It also comprises sensors around the vehicle that are used to detect and monitor external data pertaining to speed, turbulence and altitude, which is forwarded to the computer system for smooth operation. Consequently, these systems are employed to assist manual control and maintain an assigned heading. Apart from this, they are also used for detecting emergency circumstances and accordingly intercepting the course of the trajectory. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Autopilot Systems Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the commercial aviation sector. Autopilot systems are widely utilized for improving the navigational accuracy and handling emergency situations efficiently to avoid risks of accidents while minimizing human intervention, which is providing a thrust to the market growth. The market is further driven by the extensive integration of GPS autopilot systems with drones and tractors as an essential component in crop management. These systems are used for surveillance and performing redundant activities, such as rowing, plowing, fertilizing, and tilling, in a highly effective manner, which improves the overall efficiency of the farming process. Various established players, including Tesla, Inc., have launched robocars in the market that are equipped with autopilot systems. Since these cars can detect the drivable area and can be smoothly driven on highways and areas with less traffic, they are widely gaining prominence among the masses. Some of the other factors driving the market growth include the growing demand for automation in the aerospace and defense industries and extensive research and development (R&D) activities. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during 2022-2027.
