Global Electric Drone Market Overview

Electric Drone Market Size Valued at USD 28546 Million, market Grow at a CAGR Of 11.50% by 2020 -2030

Electric drones are unmanned aerial vehicles that are designed to complete tasks autonomously or with the help of human assistance. Advancements in technology have enabled unmanned aerial vehicles to function efficiently with more compact size and lightweight. The flight of drones may operate with various degrees of autonomy either under remote control by a human operator or fully or intermittently autonomously, by an on-board computer. Electric drones are fitted with GPS, high-resolution cameras, and other sensors. The primary use of drones originated in military applications, in addition to this, it is expanding its use in scientific, commercial, recreational, and other applications, namely, drone racing and photography.

The growing demand for surveillance drones and the rapidly increasing application of electric drones in spy missions are the primary factors that drive the electric drone market. These unmanned vehicles aid in providing modernized, digital communication formats that are high on security and reliability. Also, these vehicles are equipped with payloads such as electro-optical/infrared sensors, a camera, a global positioning system (GPS), and electronic intelligence, which help in rapidly modernizing their communications equipment. 

Increasing military applications, growing toy industry, usage in commercial applications fuels the demand for electric drone market during the forecast period. Drones can quickly survey construction sites and deliver data to project managers in real time and used in monitoring and maintenance of all types of power & utilities production facilities, which increased the demand for the electric drones market. Rise in demand for electric drones in videography projects, photography, and wildlife protection programs will enhance the growth of the electric drone market. However, the high cost of the device, increasing complexities in design and the need for regular maintenance acts as a barrier for the growth of electric drone market.

Segmentation of the Global Electric Drone Market

The increasing use of electric drones for spy missions and surveillance by the defense and military sector is fueling the growth of the global electric drone market. Another factor responsible for the increase in electric drone market is the technological advancements of batteries. Owing to increase in research and development and growing investment by drone manufacturers in the development of small, lightweight, and efficient electric drones, the global market is expected to witness significant growth, during the forecast period.

North America is dominating the market of electric drone due to extensive investments by the government and defense authorities in the region, which results in the development of small, lightweight, and efficient electric drones. The market in North America is primarily driven by the growing usage of electric drones in military operations and rising surveillance applications. Also, drones are mostly used for scientific, recreational, commercial and agricultural purposes in the region. Increase in use of electronic drone in the photography projects, wildlife protection programs, and increasing focus on the development of consumer-friendly electric drones is driving the electric drone market in Asia-Pacific.
