Drone Airspace Security Systems are used to restrict the drones or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle) from entering the defined premises. The increasing adoption of drone identification systems by armed forces to identify and detect malicious drones is expected to impact the market growth during the forecast period 2020-27.
The global drone airspace security System market accounted for US$ 522.2 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28.5% for the forecast period 2020-2027.
Market Dynamics- Drivers
Key companies are entering into strategic partnerships to develop advanced Anti drone systems. For instance, in December 2020, Dedrone, a U.S.-based company, announced a partnership with Vodafone, a U.K.-based telecommunication company, and Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon.com Inc., a U.S.-based multinational technology company. Through this partnership, Dedrone used Vodafone Business’s Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) solution to speed up the Dedrone Counter drone solution. This MEC solution provides real-time updates on drone incursion and prevents drone threats in the airspace.
Most of the companies and airport authorities across the globe are using airport security systems in order to protect flights from drone collision in the airspace. Many airports are also expected to adopt counter-drone technology as an extension of the existing airspace security system. For instance, in December 2018, Gatwick, the major international airport in London, canceled hundreds of flights due to disruption caused by drones in the airspace

Global Drone airspace security System Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
COVID-19 has significantly disrupted almost all the industries including counter infrastructure, transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing, and counter drone system manufacturing industry. Several governments across the globe such as Italy, Spain, and India have imposed nationwide lockdown to restrict the spread of COVID-19 disease. For instance, Government of India have imposed lockdown from March 25, 2020 to June 1, 2020. Due to the lockdown, there is a shortage of workers at the manufacturing facilities. However, factories and shops are gradually opening step by step, as countries such as India started unlock process. COVID 19 pandemic is expected to restrain the drone airspace security system market during the forecast period.
North America held dominant position in the global drone airspace security system market in 2019, accounting for 32.2% share in terms of value, followed by Europe, and Asia Pacific respectively

The global drone airspace security System market was valued at US$ 522.2 Mn in 2019 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 3,633.9 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 28.5% between 2020 and 2027.
Integration of machine learning and artificial intelligence in drones is driving the market growth. The recent developments in electronic components such as camera, processor, micro-controller, mobile hardware, and modern computing is enhancing drone capabilities. New development of hardware and components help drones to generate real-time maps of the route due to the faster microprocessor, advanced camera, and modern computing. Modern computing is capable of creating real-time drone maps with the help of aerial imaging technology.
Key companies in the market are focused on research and development activities, in order to gain a competitive edge in the market. For instance, in January 2017, Future Fibre Technologies, an Australia-based company, launched Aura Ai, a product that uses latest advanced optical signal processing algorithms, combined with artificial intelligence, to discriminate between intrusions, nuisance alarms, and other causes of fence disturbance.
Major companies operating in the global drone airspace security System market are NTT DATA Corporation, Air Space Drone, Dedrone, DroniTech, Fortem Technologies, Inc., Unifly nv, WhiteFox, Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd, DroneShield Limited, Hensoldt AG, Raytheon Company, Lockheed Martin Corporation, and Thales Group
Drone airspace security systems are majorly used in the government and defense industry. Among component type, hardware segment is expected to hold dominant position during the forecast period. The four main hardware components used in drones are cameras, sensors, radars, and jammers, anti-drone guns and laser. They are designed to provide timely information about approaching drones. The anti-drone system requires these hardware components in order to eliminate threats caused by drone’s collision. There are various types of jammers used for deactivating drones by blocking control signals.
The drone jammers are used to control drone signals and force it to land in controlled way away from the configured destination location and make the operator lose control over the drone in case it carries hazardous substances. The jamming system provides radio frequency signals to block the drones. Increasing demand for drones from commercial and military applications is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Most of the companies are providing jammers and other components in order to detect unwanted drones and protect the area by deactivating them safely by using anti drone technology.
Drone jammers are used to shoot down drones by using Radio Frequency and GPS (Global Positioning System) signal. For instance, SRC, Inc., a U.S.-based research corporation, signed a contract with the U.S. army worth US$ 426 million in order to supply a counter drone systems including radar, cameras, and jammers to track the drones. Among solution type, drone identification and disruption system is expected to hold dominant position during the forecast period. This system is used to detect unauthorized drones in the airspace. Identification and disruption system has become a critical factor for safeguarding security. With increasing concerns related to the unauthorized drones entering public and private premises, the demand for identification and disruption system in the market is increasing
