The concept of unmanned vehicle was first introduced in 1839 by Austrian soldiers. The development and usage of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) originated during the World War I. Due to considerable reduction in the weight, size, and cost, along with enhanced battery life, and increased degree of autonomy in its operation, UAVs have undergone several technological advancements. These developments have led to a wide-scale adoption of vehicles for diverse range of applications across commercial and non-commercial end users.

Moreover, the increase in the demand for UAVs across sectors such as military and defense, homeland security, and commercial segments is another major factor behind the growth of the global UAV market. The increased adoption rate can be attributed to the rapid technological advancements taking place in the field of UAVs and communication technology. UAVs used in commercial applications such as oil and gas and inspection sector are expected to be major end users to adopt SATCOM capabilities as since they primarily carry out BVLOS operations.

BIS Research Report –

Despite of having the high growth rate in future for UAV with SATCOM capabilities, there are certain challenges which are hampering the growth of market specially in commercial applications.  Stringent government regulations for UAVs and vulnerability of protection of satellite communication links from cyber-attacks contribute as the major challenges for the market. The emergence of new application in commercial sector is expected to create lucrative opportunity for the UAV market.

According to Shubhranshu Agarwal, Industry Analyst at BIS Research, “Operating UAVs in BVLOS range and communicating and controlling them with satellite for commercial application put additional cost on operations, due to which commercial operators avoid using satellite communication. They prefer to use radiofrequency or cellular networks such as 4G. Also, there are stringent government regulations for commercial UAVs operating in BVLOS range. The regulatory restrictions are expected to get relax in future. Due to which, the market for commercial UAVs with satellite communication capabilities are expected to start by 2021, hence making it one of the fastest growing markets among all other end users”.
