Market Dynamics and Trends  


Global Drone Detection Optical System Market is majorly driven by factors such as rising incidents of security breaching and increase in use of surveillance and monitoring equipment among industry verticals. The threat of drones is growing rapidly for the purpose of law enforcement and business security officers. Drones are being used because of its low cost and easy applicability which helps in surveillance, capturing data and disrupting networks. There is continuous surge in demand of drones due to its multi- purpose applications usage across the globe. Industrial usage of drones is rapidly gaining demand as multiple industries are working with drones as part of their daily regular business functions. Drones make it easier to monitor and manage traffic within workspace and help in surveying hard-to-reach places within the industrial premises. Moreover, drones are safe to use, they provide cost-effective solutions in data collection, monitoring, management and surveillance work. 

Restraint/ Challenges 

The vulnerability of drones to hacking, hijacking, spoofing, and cloud-based attacks are expected to negatively hamper and restrain the market growth. Also, the development of building a cost-effective drone detection optical system is expected to pose a major challenge in the market growth of the drone detection optical system market. Drone threats and vulnerability such as spoofing, operational issues, WIFI Jamming, malware infection and manipulation will restrain the growth in the marketplace. 

Opportunities and Trends 

The drone traffic is approximately doubling every year and thus increasing the risks associated with them such as risk of collision as well as privacy concerns which surge the demand of drone detection and tracking method for air traffic safety. The major challenging task is to detect drone as there are many objects present in the air such as birds, clouds and commercial airplanes. Smaller size drones with the help of frequency analysis will draw a trajectory along the path of the drone in order to identify the presence of the nearby drones. Detection system has many sensors which will help in identifying different objects with identical shapes through their usual gestures.
