UAS Traffic Management (UTM) System Market Outlook 2030 -

The UAS Traffic Management (UTM) system is an upcoming phenomenon that is envisioned for managing drones (mainly small drones) traffic in the lower level of airspace. The UAS traffic management system or UTM system is envisaged to be a system of several subsystems which will work together to provide an end-to-end service. The UTM system will be connected to different data providers to accumulate real-time information of weather, airspace traffic, drone registration and credentials of drone operators, among others. Although, UTM system uses different technologies than air traffic management (ATM) system, the basic key functionalities and the operations in the UAS traffic management systems are inspired from current manned aviation traffic management system. The demand for UTM services has been increasing in the past five years and this is due to the growing drone operations. North America and Europe and the two major regions in the UAS traffic management (UTM) system market, wherein these regions have carried out trials and demonstrations of UTM capabilities.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

The COVID-19 crisis is creating uncertainty in the market by slowing down the supply chains, hampering business growth, and increasing panic among the customer segments. Governments of different regions have already announced total lockdown and temporarily shutdown of industries, which adversely affected the overall production and sales. The second wave of COVID-19 is hitting hard more than the earlier strain of COVID-19 in February 2021, and is expected to impact the overall economic outlook negatively.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Increase in number of drones in airspace, government regulatory framework, and technological development are driving the growth of the market.
  • Vulnerable to cyber-attacks is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
  • Security & safety concerns for public, and alternative system to air traffic management system (ATM) can be seen as an opportunity for the market investments.

The UAS traffic management (UTM) system market trends are as follows:

Increase in number of drones in airspace

The commercial drone sector has witnessed a high growth rate with numerous technological innovations. Miniaturization and COTS technologies are providing low-cost products for even the smallest UAVs in the market, leading to a procurement spree of mini- and micro UAVs by commercial operators. The vendors are primarily offering small UAVs for agricultural, aerial photography, and data collection applications. Full-sized UAVs such as the Chinese CH-4 are also being deployed for geological surveying, ocean monitoring, meteorological observation, and forest fire prevention missions. Home deliveries via drones have become a reality due to the efforts of logistics and retail companies such as Amazon and UPS toward rolling out the technology. As commercial drones can travel at up to 100 mph and deliver goods under 5 lbs (2.3 kg), the delivery mechanism is expected to decrease the delivery time and associated costs. Technology giants such as Google and Facebook have acquired firms such as Titan Aerospace and Ascenta, respectively, to facilitate the development of UAV technologies and create a worldwide network that can offer internet access in rural areas. Such developments are anticipated to drive the adoption of UAVs by the civil and commercial end users and thereby, propelling the market of UAS traffic management (UTM) system.

Government regulatory framework

Unmanned aircraft operators need to pass certain aviation regulatory frameworks of the country they operate in. The increase in usage of drones internationally has led the regulatory bodies to incorporate drones in their framework for supporting drone service development owing to benefits offered by drones such as low energy consumption, less air, and noise pollution, and reduced road congestion. With the increase in demand for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology is utilized for navigation by drone operators. The use of regional Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, and others are regulated by the governments. The aviation administrations around the world are developing new regulations for promoting the growth in the adoption of drones. For instance, in August 2019, the Kansas Department of Transportation was authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration(FAA) for conducting Beyond Visual Line of Sight operations (BVLOS) operations in the country. The BVLOS operation was conducted by using the onboard detect-and-avoid systems. Governments across the world are developing and implementing a new regulatory system for encouraging drone usage. For instance, the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority issued European Light UAS Operator Certificate (LUC) to Nordic Unmanned in April 2021. The certificate will enable Nordic Unmanned in deploying its entire Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) fleet for beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights throughout EASA member countries. The governing bodies have eased the regulations for drone operation namely authorization, certification, and spatial limitations worldwide to facilitate the adoption of drones by various industries. Thus, the emerging regulations for unmanned aircraft is driving the market growth.
