DUBLIN, July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Global High-Altitude Aeronautics Platform Station (HAAPS) Market: Focus on Platform (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Airships, Balloons, Tethered Aerostats and Tethered Drones), Payload, and End-Users - Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2028" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The HAAPS market generated a revenue of $3,756.8 million in 2017, with military end-user holding the highest share.

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) market accounts for a large share in overall revenue generated. The high share of UAVs is mainly attributed to the growing need of UAVs for surveillance across defense agencies. Additionally, several manufacturers are conducting research on the development of solar-powered UAV for its use in providing internet connectivity to remote areas.

North America, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest-of-the-world, is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period (2018-2028). The United States is the leading country in the HAAPS market, globally and the country is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR with China dominating the market in this region. This region is growing at a much faster rate as compared to North America and Europe due to continuous efforts by both the government and HAAPS manufacturers.

Some of the key players in the HAAPS market include: Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Airbus, TCOM L.P., Thales Alenia Space, Bye Aerospace, Raven Aerostar, Google, Facebook, and Augur RosAeroSystems.

Lighter Than Air technology (LTA) has been with significant improvements over the last decade. Military and civilian organizations have been researching on the LTA technology to investigate its use in diverse applications (airships and balloons). Initially balloons were used by the military to monitor the troops movement during the American Civil War. Modern LTA vehicles are advanced and military forces are continuing to use it for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission. With the growing number of terrorist activities across the globe, military forces are increasingly using LTA technology to keep an eye over the illegal crossings at the borders.

With the growing uses of LTA technology in commercial and military applications, the research on high-altitude platforms has begun for the ends-users. High-Altitude Aeronautics Platform Station (HAAPS) is an object in a space at an altitude of 20 km to 50 km. These platforms can be manned or unmanned based on the requirement of various applications.

However, unmanned platforms are increasingly preferred in comparison to that of the manned platforms, owing to the long endurance of unmanned platforms.

The demand for HAAPS is majorly attributed to the increased advantages of HAAPS over conventional satellite and terrestrial-based systems. Additionally, growing terrorism and increased tensions across the borders are some of the factors that are propelling the adoption of the high-altitude platforms. Moreover, the military modernization programs of the different armed forces are strengthening the homeland security of the forces, pushing the sales of HAAPS market.
