Global Commercial Drones Market to Reach US$ 71.99 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Escalating Safety and Surveillance Concerns

Published on Jul 26, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Commercial Drones Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global commercial drones market size reached US$ 16.06 Billion in 2021. A commercial drone is an autonomous, semi-autonomous or remote-operated unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that is designed for industrial purposes, such as aerial photography, cargo management, weather monitoring, traffic control, and green mapping. This device generates programmed movements using flight control computers, receivers, GPS, thermal cameras, LiDAR sensors, and ultrasonic and collision avoidance sensors. As a part of surveying and performing high-quality aerial photography and filming, commercial drones can also map areas in real-time. As a result, these devices are used in a variety of industries, including agriculture, media and entertainment, energy, and government.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
