Introduction

A drone is either functioned by an onboard computer, controlled autonomously, or remotely by a human pilot. The size of a drone varies from small sized ones driven by electric motors to the large sized ones powered by internal combustion engines. Recent drone technologies have transformed modern warfare. The potential usage of drones is already influencing many companies and industries to looking forward to increasing their investments in designing and development of drones. The possible applications of drones are numerous, such as passenger carriage, cargo transportation, agricultural, and industrial. Currently, there are a number of investments by companies, such as Airbus, Boeing, AeroVironment, Inc., and DJI, on the drone front, which would significantly propel the market growth. The growing demand for the development of electric drones, increasing use of UAVs in the commercial sector, no fuel emissions, and rising usage of drones for industrial applications are the key factors driving the global drones market.
Moreover, with the rapid developments in autonomous flight systems, batteries, and electric power, there has been a steep rise in the sale of drones.
Similarly, the opportunities in this market are the emergence of 3D-printed drones, the introduction of solar-powered drones, increasing need for border monitoring, and usage of drones in the energy sector. However, the growth of this market will be hampered due to the possibility of cyber-attacks, regulatory norms, and safety issues.
Furthermore, cargo drones and passenger drones have significant implications for transportation companies that are planning next-generation products. As drone adoption accelerates, the value will quickly shift from drone makers to the providers of drone-related services. This would significantly boost the global drones market growth.
