Market Synopsis


The global drone sensor market was valued at USD 252.6 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 934.4 million by the end of forecast period with a CAGR of 25.86%.


The increasing demand of drones in civil and commercial applications is the major factor driving the growth of the market. Drones are disrupting businesses in several segments such as agriculture, traffic management and homeland security. Drones help in capturing real-time data along with high accuracy. Some of the major applications of drones include real-time surveillance, traffic monitoring, crop health monitoring, and goods delivery. These drones consist of various type of sensors such as inertial sensors, pressure sensors and position sensors among others, to help the drone to provide real-time data. Accelerometers help in determining position and orientation of the drone. One of the technologies used in accelerometer is thermal sensing, wherein the accelerometer senses the changes in the movement of gas molecules. These sensors play an important role in stabilizing on-board cameras which are vital for various drones’ applications. Tilt sensors are used for providing stability to the drones while flow sensors are used for monitoring air flow into small gas engines which are used to power some drone types. Also, other important sensors include current sensors, distance sensors, and light sensors among others.


Some of the drones make use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to better analyze the data with sophisticated image processing. Machine learning and artificial intelligence helps the drones to better identify objects and take required action. Furthermore, the reduction in price of advanced sensor technologies have let the drone companies to offer a wide range of mapping solutions such as multispectral and hyperspectral imaging which drastically improves drone imagery.


Segmentation


By sensor type, the market is segmented into inertial sensor, image sensor, speed and distance sensor, position sensor, pressure sensor, light sensor, current sensor, and others. Inertial sensor is further segmented into accelerometers, gyroscope, magnetometers and tilt sensor. Image sensor is further bifurcated into infrared, thermal, multispectral, and 3D image sensor. Speed and distance sensors are further divided into radar, lidar, and proximity sensor; and position sensors into GPS and GNSS.


By platform type, the market is segmented into VTOL, fixed-wing, and hybrid. By application, the market is divided into navigation, collision detection & avoidance, data acquisition, motion detection, air pressure measurement, power monitoring, and others.


By end-user, the market is segmented into construction, media & entertainment, agriculture, personal, security & surveillance, defense, law enforcement, transportation, and others. The defense and security & surveillance segments are expected to contribute a significant revenue share to the market.
