Discover the 2025 size forecast of the Middle East UAV market

Event Overview

With continued advancement of UAV technologies, their applications across every industry as a critical tool is on the rise. UAVs greatly improve efficiency in applications such as inspection, monitoring and surveillance, reduce response time and risk in emergency situations, and offer amazing opportunities in delivery and transport of materials, good and even people. UAVs have therefore become an integral part of almost all industries with new and innovative applications tested and rolled out almost on daily basis. On the other hand, UAVs can be used illegally and wrongfully, and nations are continually evaluating their strategies and preparedness to negate the use of UAVs and drones in attacks against national interests and critical infrastructure or misuse that could lead to threats.

The Unmanned Aerial Systems Forum serves as the region’s only event to highlight the latest in regulations, applications and counter strategies pertaining to this rapidly developing industry. The program focuses on brining a mix of best regional and international updates from across various sectors.
