Drones are unmanned aerial vehicle, primarily used to do tasks which involve high risk of human life. Commercial drones are extensively used in law enforcement search, surveillance and rescue, high altitude imaging, emergency response, forest fire monitoring, humanitarian aid, flood mapping, product delivery, photography and film industry, petroleum spill monitoring and internet connectivity. In addition, drones are also being used for environmental monitoring and mapping, hyper spectral imaging, soil moisture imaging, plume dispersion and tracking, in-situ atmospheric monitoring and aerosol source determination among others.
The major factors driving the growth of commercial drones market is the increasing demand of drones for commercial applications. In addition, increasing adoption of drones for enforcement of law is further fueling the growth of the commercial drones market. This is primarily due to the ability of drones for transferring high resolution images and video and other surveillance data in real time to base stations. Moreover, significant technological advancements including improved design and better data processing capabilities in the last few years is aiding the growth of this market.
However, stringent government regulations for security and safety issues are posing as a major restraint for the growth of commercial drones market. Moreover, scarcity of trained pilots and lack of air traffic management systems is further retraining the growth of this market. Nevertheless, the market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period primarily due to the increasing application of commercial drones for law enforcements.
