Reginal Analysis:

Increasing defense budgets of various countries is one of the major driving factors for the global Targeting Pods market. For instance; according to Global Aerospace and Defense Industry Outlook 2019, the defense budget of UK is about US$ 52 billion and this could increase up to US$ 78 billion in few years. Also the defense budget of India in 2018 was US 43.8 billion and by 2025 India is expected to become "third largest" aviation market and supply about 478 million passengers. Similarly the defense budgets of countries like France, Japan is increasing in recent years. Targeting pods are used in aircrafts and defense systems for identifying targets and guiding precision guided munitions (PGM). In addition, rising demand of aircraft targeting systems is another major factor fostering the growth of global targeting pods market. For instance; according to FAA 2019, FAA forecasts the small UAS model fleet will likely more than double in size over the next five years. From the present 1.1 million units to over 2.4 million units, by 2022 the sUAS non-model fleet will likely grow from the current 110,604 registered aircraft to over 450,000. So the increasing demand of aircraft targeting systems will simultaneously increase the demand of targeting pods.
