Top Companies in the Drone Industry

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the global drones market size reached US$ 22.1 Billion in 2021. The top drone companies are focusing on customized and technologically advanced drone variants that can be modified to create minimal noise and pass through narrow and confined spaces for commercial applications. They are also using composite-based materials to construct critical components and parts of drones that would increase the capabilities of the drone platforms and escalate its rapid adoption across different industries. Moreover, several companies are developing advanced technology-integrated drone hardware and software solutions that reduce human effort in applications, such as construction, mining, and aerial mapping. For instance, in October 2019, Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) partnered with Air Canada and the Edmonton International Airport (EIA) to launch the world’s first airport-based drone delivery hub.  Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 43.4 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.56% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
