Commercial drone market to grow by USD44.85b from 2022 to 2027 – Technavia report

The commercial drone market size is estimated to grow by USD 44.85 billion from 2022 to 2027, growing at a CAGR of 38.97% according to a report published by Technavio. In the North American region, a substantial 44% contribution is anticipated towards the global market’s growth over the forecast period. Notably, significant investments by the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in advanced electronics and sensor research for military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are poised to revolutionize avionics systems. Furthermore, governmental emphasis on bolstering national defence capabilities underscores the strategic importance of such developments. Drones, extensively utilized by the DoD for surveillance and security operations, are witnessing heightened demand. For instance, the recent USD 15.4 million contract awarded to FLIR for its FLIR Black Hornet 3 personal reconnaissance systems exemplifies this trend. The efficacy demonstrated by drones in various operations augments their indispensability, thereby propelling market growth in the region, says the press release.

Technological advancements have led to the use of drones in various fields, including agriculture, construction, mapping, logistics, and surveillance. Moreover, numerous logistics companies are conducting tests and trials for drone-based deliveries. For Instance, the partnership between Zipline International Inc. and Walmart Inc. in September 2020, where commercial drone delivery services were introduced in the US. In addition, drones offer the advantage of enabling faster delivery of goods compared to traditional road transport. Hence, these advancements are expected to drive the growth of the commercial drone market during the forecast period.

Cybersecurity threats will challenge the commercial drone market growth during the forecast period.

Market segmentation

The commercial drone market research report covers market segmentation by product (software and services and hardware), end-user (infrastructure, media and entertainment, public safety, agriculture, and others), and geography (North America, Europe, APAC, Middle East and Africa, and South America).

The software and services segment held the largest share of the market in 2022 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The increasing demand for software in drones is a key factor driving the growth of this segment. Software solutions help companies validate and analyze drone data.  The high cost associated with manufacturing commercial drones has forced many other vendors to stop manufacturing drones and shift to offering technical platforms and software solutions that are suitable for the drones available in the market. Hence all these above-mentioned factors will increase the segment growth during the forecast period.
