Research efforts by educational institutions boost semi-autonomous drone development

The semi-autonomous commercial drone market shipments are expected to surpass 13 million units by 2032. This is a result of rapid product development efforts from educational institutions and private technology enterprises. However, semi-autonomous drone inspections are associated with high costs as compared to fully autonomous counterparts, which may hinder business progress to some extent.

Efficiency in long-range flights to proliferate fixed-wing commercial drone use in ISR service delivery

The fixed-wing drone segment is primed to progress at nearly 10.5% growth rate between 2023 and 2032, due to its simple structure and ability to offer more efficiency in long flight durations at high speeds. The demand for commercial drone systems from diverse industry verticals including the Airforce has also increased.

Commercial drone technology to emerge as prominent tool for agricultural research

The agriculture segment captured above 21% share of the commercial drone market in 2022, on account of the technology’s capability to deliver decision-making insights to farmers through big data analytics. The capitalization of multispectral, hyperspectral, and thermal sensors has also allowed farmers to understand crop conditions and take appropriate and timely measures to nurture them. Additionally, the significant increase in grants for agricultural research will support the growth of commercial drone manufacturers.

Strong presence of UAV manufacturers to stimulate adoption of commercial drone in the APAC region

The Asia Pacific commercial drone market size will witness 17.5% CAGR through 2032, given the strong presence of established enterprises including Autel Robotics and SZ DJI Technology Co., Ltd., among others The use of UAVs has also surged in China, Japan, and other APAC countries, owing to the awareness of civilian drone applications among organizations. Construction engineering companies have also been securing orders in countries such as India, which may amplify the production of commercial drones to capture data on building sites.

Product launch initiatives from industry players to define competitive landscape

3D Robotics, Airobotics Ltd., Prime Air (, Inc.), BAE Systems, Cyberhawk, Delair, DJI, Guangzhou Jifei Technology Co., Ltd., Hoverfly Technologies, Inc., Intel Corporation, Kespry, and Parrot SA are some of the key players operating in the commercial drone market.
