Ground Vehicle (UGV) Market – Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 – 2024)”

report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s

The market for the unmanned ground vehicle is anticipated to register a
CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period.

There is a growing use of UGVs to carry counter-insurgency and combat
operations. This is primarily to reduce human casualties in such
situations. Increasing demand for UGVs for ISR missions. Demand for UGVs
is also increasing for commercial applications, such as in the oil and
gas sector, firefighting, and agriculture.

Several countries are significantly spending on the R&D of unmanned
ground systems to overcome the challenges that are associated with such
systems. Reliability of the systems and the need for improvement in the
power supply to UGVs are some of the prominent challenges for the
manufacturers of UGVs.

Scope of the Report

Unmanned ground vehicle is a land-based counterpart to remotely operate
underwater vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles. They are used in
various missions where it may be inconvenient, dangerous, or impossible
to have a human operator present.

Key Market Trends

Based on Application, the military segment will register the highest
growth during the forecast period

The development of UGVs started way back in the 1960-70s by research
institutions associated with the defense organizations. In recent years,
armed forces of several countries have deployed UGVs for various
missions. Recently, the Russian military revealed its combat-tested
Uran-9 robot tank in Syria. Also, in 2015, Russia’s Military Industry
Committee announced its objective of deploying 30% of Russia’s kinetic
weapons on remote-control platforms by 2025.

UGVs have been successfully deployed for missions related to clearing
mines and IEDs. Also, the role of UGVs are shifting toward addressing
chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE)
threats. For instance, in July 2018, a collaboration agreement was
signed between Croatian mine-clearing vehicle manufacturer DOK-ING and
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to produce a CBRNE UGV. Advancements
in UGV capabilities and miniaturization of these vehicles will support
the growth of UGVs in the military segment in the coming years.

North America and Europe are expected to generate huge demand for UGVs
in the coming years

Major investments in the UGV market are expected from North America
followed by Europe over the forecast period. Both Russia and the United
States have progressed rapidly in the development of advanced unmanned
ground systems. The popular UGVs in service with the US Armed Forces are
the Foster-Miller TALON remotely operated vehicle series and PackBot
military robots.

Recently, the US Army awarded a five-year contract to Endeavor Robotics
to modernize and maintain the US Army’s existing fleet of UGV platforms.
The contract is worth USD 32 million. During the Army Warfighting
Experiment 2018, the British Troops put four Milrem Robotics’ and
QinetiQ TITAN unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) through three weeks of
rigorous tests. The UGVs were used in a number of different roles with
missions conducted in urban, open, and forested terrain. Similar
developments are undergoing in Russia, India, Japan, France, and
Estonia, among others.

Competitive Landscape

The market is highly fragmented with several major players. Most of the
UGV procurement and development involves local players. However, due to
the lack of technological expertise, some smaller local companies enter
into a partnership with global players. Some of the prominent players in
the market are Qinetiq, Oshkosh Defense, Lockheed Martin Corporation,
iRobot Corporation, FLIR, Northrop Grumman Corporation, and BAE Systems,
among others. Recently, FLIR completed the acquisition of Endeavor
Robotics for USD 385 million. Product innovation will play a vital role
for the success of any UGV manufacturer.
