Market Dynamics

Driver: Growth of Advanced UAVs

The advancements in UAV technology have transformed and revolutionized efficient airborne surveillance and monitoring. This has enabled more efficient and accurate operations. The end-user industry verticals are increasingly using drone technology for forestry, infrastructure inspection, animal conservation, and search & rescue operations. Their increased capabilities and accuracy distinguish advanced UAVs compared to ordinary drones. High-precision GPS, multi-sensor imaging systems, obstacle avoidance sensors, and advanced computer processing systems are among the features of advanced UAVs. It enables them to measure, identify, and track things precisely. Furthermore, advanced UAVs include software programs allowing users to customize the drone’s functioning and setup to meet their specific demands.

Restraint: High Cost Associated

The main issue in the market for commercial drones is the high price associated with the commercial drons. The high cost of commercial drones is a restraining factor for organizations seeking to capitalize on the technology’s potential to boost efficiency, improve cost effectivity, and create new job opportunities. The commercial drones exist in various sizes and capacities and can be utilized for various applications across end-user industries. While the utilization of drones has a wide range of possible applications, the expensive cost of the technology itself makes the investment challenging for the organizations. The cost of a commercial drone is determined by its size, characteristics, and intended usage/application. The organizations must also consider the cost of sensors, cameras, batteries, chargers, and other accessories. Additional charges incur depending on the application of the drone. This factor is restraining the market growth and development.

Opportunity: Increasing Use of Drones for Security and Surveillance

In recent years, the demand for commercial drones has risen substantially for security and surveillance purposes. The UAVs can be operated with the help of remote access or can fly autonomously and are outfitted with cameras, sensors, and communication systems. Commercial drones provide end-user industries with an economical approach to monitoring vast areas/regions and can be employed in various surveillance and security applications. Commercial drones are also utilized in patrolling procedures. Commercial drones are being used to patrol the perimeters of significant infrastructure installations such as dams, airports and power plants. Drones can be deployed to identify intrusions, patrol the perimeter, and report to the specific control centre. Drones can also be used for thermal imaging, detecting heat signatures that may reveal the presence of animals or humans.
