With various forms of innovations in the field of drone technology, advanced systems are being developed that are highly autonomous, light weight and are easy to operate. The market of multi-rotor drones is expected to show robust growth due the increasing use of UAVs in the law enforcement and other non-military applications. DJI, 3D Robotics, AeroVironment, Aeryon Labs, Microdrones GmbH, Draganfly Innovations, MicroMultiCopter Aero Technology (MMC), Multirotor service-drone, Parrot and Yuneec are some of the major players of the multi-rotor drone market.

The global multi-rotor drone market reported a revenue of $1,254.82 million in 2016 with aerial shooting segment accommodating for the highest revenue by 2022. Survey and mapping segment is likely to grow at a highest rate owing to its increasing use in the construction, Geographic Information System (GIS) and others.

Growth in the aerial photography development of advanced sensors, improvement in the computing speeds and enhanced data processing capabilities has driven multi-rotor drone technologies. The drones in the consumer sector is expected to have the highest demand during the forecast period and hence, will prove as the potential market for the utilization of multi-rotor drone. The growth in the aerial photography has also provided opportunities for many players. Many countries across the world are actively implementing their laws and regulations governing the commercial drone industry. Moreover, the growing prominence of drone as-a-service has enabled various commercial sectors with increased advantages. The application of the multi-rotor drones has been actively adopted in precision farming to monitor the quality of the soil and the crops produced for better productivity.

North America is expected to have the highest market during the forecast period (2016-2022), followed by Europe, Asia and the Rest of the World (RoW). The increase in the demand for multi-rotor drones in the North America is mainly attributed to the moderate regulations by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The market players are thus, able to provide services across various applications. The commercial market for multi-rotor drones in the U.S. is increasing for applications such as inspection, precision agriculture and search and rescue operations, among others.

The United States is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period (2016-2022). The U.K. is one of the prominent countries in Europe, which is currently focusing on the development of drones for public safety and security. Asia-Pacific region majorly consists of China, Japan, and India in the multi-rotor drone market. The countries in the region are experiencing a trend of extensive investment in all forms of drone technologies. Indian market, currently being the largest importer of UAVs, is expected to grow at a highest rate. Moreover, there are ample opportunities for new entrants in this region, as the demand for UAVs in increasing for both commercial as well as defense applications.
