The global UAV payload and subsystems market reached a value of US$ 7.6 Billion in 2018. The market is further expected to reach a value of US$ 11.6 Billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.3% during 2019-2024. An Unnamed Ariel Vehicle, i.e. UAV, or a drone indispensably carries extra weight which is not included in the weight of the drone itself. This weight includes extra cameras, sensors or packages for delivery. Payloads which are required for business drones mainly include GPS, additional data telemetry, LiDAR etc. With the advancement in technology, military sectors as well as commercial users are increasingly utilising drones to enhance their services and outputs. The size and weight of the payloads is decided by the weight of the drone. A heavier drone can carry big payloads. The demand of payload subsystems is increasing in parallel with the increasing popularity of drones.
Drivers of Global UAV Payload and Subsystems Market:
- Both developed as well as the developing nations are seeking the utility of drones for various tasks such as to improve the surveillance and communication systems, make rescue operations more efficient, and the collection and management of data. A wide range of payloads including sensors, communication systems and electronics, etc., are required for performing all the aforementioned tasks.
- There are numerous improvements made in persistent surveillance systems, electronic counter-measures and communications. Along with this, there has been a rise in the use of UAVs for the purpose of search and rescue operations.
