Global Consumer Drone Market – Introduction

  • Consumer drones are aerial vehicles which guide the consumers about the airspace system and remote areas of the environment above the area of land and water where consumers have limited reach. A drone is a flying aircraft controlled by a software and a wireless remote, and gives access to ground control systems, where all the sensors, GPS, and navigational systems are present. Drones have a camera attached to be able to see distantly. The camera ensures that consumers obtain steady aerial capturing, photography, and videography, and helps in detecting flight levels. Pilots are able to identify possible atmospheric hazards with the sensor based flying robots in the air. 

Extensive applications in various industries (agriculture, constructions & mining, and military services) driving demand

  • In the agriculture sector, consumer drones are used extensively over the field to monitor crops & livestock, in irrigation management, and fertilization, i.e., impact of pesticides and nutrients on the seedlings. The safety of workers in construction & mining industries require the use of drone technology where drones fly around the construction sites and detect possible hazards. In addition, drones have been widely used by the military and by soldiers to detect high bomb prone areas, and to identify locations which can be attacked by enemies where it is practically difficult to reach. Furthermore, application of drones for the purpose of photography has been widely practiced as a hobby.

Technologically upgraded, providing advanced speed, navigation, and control systems

  • New innovations in the manufacturing of consumer drones have increased the demand for the product. New drone model specifications offer better speed, high range, and navigation systems which can be linked to the user’s phone, and control systems which are safe, reliable, and efficient. Motor drivers, angle, position sensors, chargers, and regulators offer all the necessary elements for best control systems and power efficiency to consumer drones. These features of consumer drone parts excel in performance and have low power consumption, thereby having a positive impact on consumer buying choices.

North America considered the dominant region in the global consumer drone market

  • In terms of geography, the global consumer drone market can be divided into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • North America accounted for major share of the global consumer drone market in 2019. The market in North America is expected to rise at a significant pace during the forecast period due to increased government spending on drones, large-scale military operations, growing demand for drones from the commercial and government sectors, and United Nations projects driving potential demand for drones in countries such as the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In Europe, considerable increase in usage of drones in the civil aviation sector is seen, which is projected to fuel the demand for consumer drones in the U.K., Germany, France, and Rest of Europe.
  • The market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a substantial rate during the forecast period due to significant consumer interest in various activities such as photography, aerial imaging, videography, introduction of drones at lower prices, and their inclusion in a wide array of activities covering rescue operations, surveillance, weather monitoring, traffic monitoring, geographical mapping, firefighting, etc., which is projected to surge the sales of consumer drones in Asia Pacific.
