LONDON. Interest in the use of military unmanned aerial systems (UASs) or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as a cost-effective platform alternative for military operations has led to a global surge in use by armed forces around the globe and will lead to the military UAS market reaching $12 billion in 2032, according to a new report from GlobalData, "Global Military UAV Market 2022-2032." 

The study authors assert that the key trends driving the demand for these systems over the next decade will be increased interest in the utilization of manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) systems to redefine combat operations, along with large strides made in mission endurance and payload capabilities. 

In terms of region, Asia-Pacific will lead growth in the global military UAS market, with key market segments being MALE [medium-altitude long-endurance], HALE [high-altitude long-endurance], TUAV [tactical unmanned air vehicle], loitering munition, and target drones.
