Global Drone Package Delivery Market to Grow at 26.42% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Expanding E-Commerce Sector

November 12, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Drone Package Delivery Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global drone package delivery market reached a value of US$ 904 Million in 2021. Drone package delivery refers to the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to transport food, packages, medical supplies, and goods. It is utilized for distributing packages to consumers during the last mile delivery process. The drone contains 4 to 8 propellers, rechargeable batteries, and can carry lightweight containers. It can also be operated autonomously with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) technology or remotely through distribution centers and operators that oversee the flight. Nowadays, drone package delivery solutions are gaining traction as they offer lower cost, higher operational efficiency, new revenue streams, instant fulfillment, reduced congestion in roadways, and lower emissions.

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.

Global Drone Package Delivery Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the increasing utilization of drone package delivery across diverse sectors such as e-commerce, food service, retail, logistics, and healthcare. Besides this, the rise in the usage of the internet of things (IoT) in drone delivery systems and the growing demand for faster delivery is fueling the growth of the market. Furthermore, with the rising consciousness regarding air pollution from vehicle emissions, there has been an increasing need for carbon emission-free transport solutions. This has resulted in the escalating demand for drone package delivery systems. Apart from this, various companies operating in the logistics and transportation, retail, and agriculture sectors are integrating drone delivery in their business models, which facilitates the smooth and successful execution of the delivery. For instance, Amazon and Dominos make use of drone packaging delivery services to deliver products hassle-free to their consumers. In addition, the rapid spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has increased the deployment of drones for transportation of a wide range of medical equipment, cargo, and parcels as a way of emphasizing contactless delivery and adhering to social distancing norms. Moreover, several technological innovations, such as cloud computing, are positively influencing the market growth. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26.42% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
