The Number of Delivery Drones in the Global eCommerce Industry Alone is Expected to be at least 2.2 Million Units by 2025 Growing at a CAGR of 87.5% from 2018
This study provides a comprehensive insight into the drone delivery landscape.It discusses the evolution of delivery drones and the need for them today, as well as the macroeconomic trends favouring them.

The technological challenges and supporting technologies to overcome them are included, and the various types of delivery drones and profiles of key participants are provided.The study offers an analysis of the current competitive landscape.

The research segments the different delivery drones and analyses their capabilities.The different types of drones discussed include multicopters such as tricopter, quadcopter, hexacopter and octocopter, as well as fixed wing and transitional drones.

The various futuristic application avenues for drones in the future and potential business models and revenue streams for the future are also discussed. The study also looks at the evolving commercial drone delivery regulations across the globe and identifies countries that have embarked on friendly regulations for commercial drone operations.

The increase in the number of vehicles on urban roads and the associated traffic congestion makes it difficult for logistics, postal, courier, and eCommerce companies to deliver the goods at their intended destinations on time.This becomes a serious challenge when it involves scenarios like emergency response during hours of peak traffic.

While the urban landscape poses such challenges for last-mile delivery, rural areas also pose unique challenges for delivery businesses.Most rural areas across the globe are plagued with poor road connectivity and infrastructure to facilitate last-mile delivery.

In case of a natural disaster or a health emergency, it takes days and sometimes even weeks for first responders to reach such areas. Delivery drones can help in combatting such challenges prevalent in the last-mile delivery.

The advent of the delivery drones poses a number of pertinent questions related to safety, regulations, privacy, traffic management, and key application areas.

These questions gave rise to the key objectives of this study listed below:
• To capture the key milestones in drone delivery over the years
• To identify the key participants in the drone delivery market as of 2018
• To comprehend the major challenges for commercialisation of delivery drones
• To identify the main technology enablers for delivery drones
• To identify the infrastructure required to support drone delivery operations
• To identify future application avenues for delivery drones
• Key conclusions and actionable recommendations
