Compared to 36 cases in 2016, 75 cases of illegal drone or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) use were reported in Japan in 2017, according to the National Police Agency. In recent years, there has been a sudden surge in the usage of UAVs for personal and commercial purposes, which often ends up creating security risks, either intentionally or unintentionally. This has prompted governments across the world to regulate such devices as well as adopt countermeasures, in case the UAV is hostile. Thus, with an increase in the usage of drones, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) anti-drone market is predicted to grow to $2,105.0 million by 2025.
Among the various kinds of security risks created by unauthorized UAVs is that they often come in close contact with aircraft, which can lead to disasters. For instance, a Chinese national, on tour, led a UAV into the area manned by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), after breaching the security at the Taj Mahal, in October 2018. Such incidents are leading to the installation of counter-active systems to thwart any possible threat. For instance, China deployed its first anti-drone system at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in November 2017.
Commercial, military & defense, and government are the major end uses of such products. Among these, anti-UAVs were the most widely procured for military & defense purposes in 2017, as a result of the increasing defense budget of regional nations. Across APAC, drones are rapidly being used for illegal and terrorist activities, which has fueled the need for effective countermeasures. For instance, 26 people were arrested in China, in March 2018, on suspicions of illegally airlifting two 660-foot cables to Shenzhen from Hong Kong, on UAVs, in order to smuggle iPhones.

The APAC anti-drone market has historically been the largest in China, as it has the highest defense budget in the world, after the U.S., which it uses to better arm its security forces. Additionally, numerous established defense and aerospace companies are headquartered in China, which is another reason for its dominance on the industry. In the coming years, the procurement for such platforms would increase at the highest pace in India, as the country is focusing on the modernization of its troops and offering its citizens and other assets an enhanced level of security.
Hence, as UAVs become more popular among criminals and terrorists, governments of APAC nations would also adopt effective measures to counter them.
