The autonomous aircraft market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period 2019-2028.
Autonomous aircraft can be defined as an unmanned aircraft which does not require pilot intervention in the management of the flight. Beyond the line of sight, unmanned autonomous UAV are also included in the study.
Cargo planes can be the first to adopt this autonomous aircraft technology. In passenger flights, safety and the lives of people are given the paramount importance and thus the adoption of the autonomous aircraft should start after continuous and rigorous testing is done. This is not the case with the cargo aircraft, as the level of life risk is zero with the use of autonomous aircraft in cargo planes. Also, the growth in the E-Commerce industry is driving the air cargo demand, which may increase the demand for air cargo pilots in the near future. Hence most of the developments in the autonomous aircraft market are aimed at bringing the autonomous cargo aircraft into commercial use, to fill in the gap due to the pilot shortage. Boeing's futuristic NeXt division oversees its heavy-duty drone prototype that's capable of lifting a 500-pound payload. The so-called "cargo air vehicle" conducted its first indoor flight test last year, and will move to outdoor testing in 2019. Many such developments are currently underway, and these are expected to help the autonomous cargo aircraft to be introduced into the market within the next decade.
North America currently has the highest market share in the autonomous aircraft market due to the high number of procurements of tactical autonomous UAVs in the region. Also, various developments in the North America region in terms of autonomous aircraft shall lead to the region being the fastest growing one. Currently, the United States is increasingly focused on the development of autonomous aircraft. The United States has hit a roadblock in the usage of such aircraft for commercial applications due to governmental regulations, but the growing scale of autonomous aircraft development shall lead to its growth in the coming years. Technological advancement, which is high in countries like the US, has led to the development of advanced autonomous aircraft which can adapt to changing conditions as well as handle flying situations without any human intervention. Likewise, in the near future, autonomous aircraft can also increasingly be used for the transportation of cargo, and North America is expected to be the pioneer to all these Thus, various ongoing developments shall lead to the growth of the industry in North America in the near future.
The Boeing Company, Airbus SE, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Textron Inc. (Bell Helicopters), BAE Systems Plc. etc., are some of the prominent players in the market. Most of the development in the autonomous aircraft technology is done in the UAV industry, and the market still trails development in passenger and cargo carrying aircraft. Companies like Airbus SE and The Boeing Company have presented their autonomous air taxi concepts recently, and many companies are yet to follow. Bell, a unit of Textron, is also working on its autonomous pod transport. Thus the market is expanding to the commercial transportation sector, and the relatively new concepts are opening many opportunities for players to venture into the market.
