The Drone Simulator market size is projected to grow from USD 799 million in 2022 to USD 1,501 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 13.4% from 2022 to 2027. Simulators can create different environments and situations that a drone pilot may face in the real world. The drone simulator market is expected to increase as the defense forces shift their training to simulation based on real-world training. This saves them much money, and the pilots can be trained in different situations. The demand for drone simulators is expected to increase in commercial applications because of the growing demand for drones in photography, inspection, monitoring, and others. Using simulators for drone racing and gaming is also expected to drive the drone simulator market.

The military segment is projected to lead the application segment during the forecast period
The market based on applications is segmented into military and commercial. The military market is expected to stay dominant, owing to the low cost of drone simulators for training military pilots and operators, as opposed to live training with real drones.

The augmented reality segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Based on the device type, the market is divided into two categories: augmented reality and virtual reality.The augmented reality category is expected to increase faster throughout the projection period.

The rising implementation of augmented reality drone simulators in military applications, which gives a better training experience to pilots by utilizing the real-world environment, is driving the growth of this market.
