The global micro UAV market for military applications is projected to register a CAGR of 5.7% over 2020-2030. Nano UAVs will register a growth of 34.04% during this decade, according to a report by ResearchAndMarkets.com.

According to the analysis of the global micro and nano UAV market for defense and security, by 2030, the worldwide need for military-grade micro and nano UAVs will reach about 100,000 systems. The major growth of the market is anticipated from 2025 to 2030 when the majority of demand for micro and nano drones will generate in Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East and Africa.

Most nations are yet to test and take trials of micro and nano drones and approve the products. The U.S. and European nations are currently ordering micro and nano UAVs as a part of their futuristic robotic army programs. It will be an integration of ground robots with aerial robots.

Nano UAVs are especially considered as flying sensors to help personal surveillance and reconnaissance. The need was established during Afghanistan and Gulf wars. After coming back from wars in Afghanistan the US and NATO countries will show a reduction in ground-based situational awareness needs and it will depend on more on-air surveillance using nano UAVs, according to the report. The future will be to fight wars with electronic countermeasures using space warcraft and UAVs, according to the report.
