Fixed-wing VTOL UAV Market – Trends Forecast Till 2028

The Fixed-Wing VTOL UAV Market is projected to reach a CAGR of 18.4% from 2021 to 2028.

Fixed-wing VTOL UAV refers to the fixed-wing vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned air vehicle (UAV). They are commonly known as drone and are capable of being operated autonomously with any human pilot. A fixed-wing VTOL UAV can hover, take-off, and land vertically like a helicopter with help of rotors. The vehicle is primarily designed for high aerodynamic performance and low take-off weight. Aerodynamics design steps and sizing of both wing and static stability is fulfilled by evaluating the centre of gravity location with respect to the neutral point

The increasing adoption of fixed-wing VTOL UAVs in various commercial applications, such as monitoring, surveying & mapping, agriculture, aerial remote sensing, product delivery and rise in the adoption of technologically advanced runway less unmanned aerial military platforms by defence forces are some of the factors that have supported long-term expansion for Fixed-wing VTOL UAV Market.
