Global Unmanned Ground Vehicles Market to Grow at 5.6% during 2024-2032, Propelled by Arrival of Autonomous Variants

June 02, 2020 | Automotive Industry

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Unmanned Ground Vehicles Market Report by Mobility (Wheeled, Tracked, Legged, Hybrid), Size (Small (10-200 lbs), Medium (200 - 500 lbs), Large (500 – 1,000 lbs), Very Large (1,000 – 2,000 lbs), Extremely Large (>2,000 lbs)), Mode of Operation (Tethered, Teleoperated, Autonomous), System (Payloads, Control System, Navigation System, Power System, and Others), Application (Military, Law Enforcement, Federal Law Enforcement, Commercial), and Region 2024-2032," the global unmanned ground vehicles market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during 2024-2032. Unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) are land robots that operate without the presence of onboard human operators. They are equipped with a set of sensors to monitor and observe the terrain, gather crucial information and then report the findings to the operators who remotely control the vehicle through teleoperation. UGVs can either act and navigate autonomously or according to the instructions passed on by their operators. They are widely used in environments where it is inconvenient and dangerous to accommodate the presence of human operators. For instance, they are utilized for carrying out rescue duties during disasters, and for examining the ground, supplying ammunition to soldiers during combat, and detecting and detonating explosives.

Global Unmanned Ground Vehicles Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the rising incidences of terrorist activities and cross-border disputes. Consequently, governments of various countries are investing in the utilization of efficient military modules to manage combat operations and counterinsurgencies with minimum human loss. This, in confluence with the increasing defense spending by governments for upgrading their security capabilities, is propelling the demand for UGVs. The growing preference for autonomous UGVs is also expected to provide a boost to the market growth. Continual technological advancements in sensors and remote-control technologies have led to the advent of autonomous UGVs with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and operational capabilities. Apart from this, these vehicles are increasingly being employed by the marine sector for patrolling established command posts and bases in hostile environments. The expanding applications of UGVs across other industry verticals for logistics, firefighting, coal mining, highway transit, planetary exploration and disaster management operations are further catalyzing the market growth.
