A transponder is wireless control, communications, and monitoring device that receives and automatically responds to an incoming signal. Transponders transmit a location and positioning data from the   smart unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to the air traffic control (ATC) on the ground and to traffic collision avoidance systems on other airborne platforms, which helps maintain a safe distance between aircraft and UAVs. Thus, the transponders which are mounted on a drone to detect and display certain characteristics in real -time are called drone transponders. Moreover, UAVs are not easily detectable by ATC radars owing to their small size. The integration of transponder in UAVs provides the controller with a more complete surveillance picture as compared to primary radar and assists in ensuring accurate and safe flight operations. Furthermore, drone transponders have very simple module integration and configuration via a universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) interface and control commands The drone control offers a display that provides information about pressure, altitude, air temperature, camera display, and other parameters. It is very easy to use and operate owing to the simple assembly design of the drone.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis: 
Government across the all the major countries have announced a lockdown because of the COVID 19 pandemic resulting in the halt in business. This has led to disruption in manufacturing of drone transponders. Moreover, due to decline in the economy, there is decrease in the demand for drone transponders. Furthermore, due to lockdown there was unavailability of raw materials required for manufacturing of drone transponders. Moreover, due to social distancing & travelling restriction norms, there was unavailability of skilled labor required for developing of software for drone transponders. Drones is a developing sector which had a slight setback due to the pandemic, but it is expected to recover and drive the growth of the of drone transponders market post pandemic.
Top Impacting Factors 
Rise in use of drone in commercial sectors, and decline in prices of drones and ADS-B mandates drive growth of the market.
Vulnerability of drones to cyberattacks and lack of skilled personnel to fly drone hinder the growth of the market.  
Adoption of lightweight materials, rise is use of drones in defense sector, and increase in popularity of lightweight material & advent of solar-powered drones act as an opportunity for growth of the market.

Market Trends
Rise in use of drone in defense sector

Drones are now being used in the defense industry for various tactical missions and surveillance. The military & defense of major countries are investing in drones for new & advanced technology. For instance, in 2021, San Diego-based start-up Citadel defense received a multimillion-dollar contract from the Pentagon for its AI-Based Counter-Drone System. In 2021, the Indian Army signed a contract of $20 million with drone manufacturer ideaForge for procurement of high-altitude UAVs. Moreover, in 2021 India plans to purchase 30 MQ-9 Reaper drones for $3 billion from the U.S. defense corporation General Atomics. Thus, the rise in use of drones and government investment in military & defense act as an opportunity for the growth of the drone transponders market
