High maneuverability and vertical flight features is likely to augment the hybrid drone market growth

The hybrid drone segment is expected to see exponential growth of above 15% CAGR through 2027 owing to the drone’s ability to take off vertically and start-flight from any spot akin to a helicopter. The wings of the hybrid drone support the traversing of long distances without high energy utilization. This makes the drone very proficient and durable, highlighting the technological improvements made in the market.

Increasing demand of commercial drones with minimum human assistance supporting the growth of autonomous drones

The adoption of autonomous commercial drone is anticipated to register over 3 million shipments by 2027. Autonomous drones are expected to be deployed in various use cases as the need for the implementation of drone technology increases exponentially where humans cannot reach conveniently and independence in machine use is required. Additionally, the growing emphasis on drones to deliver goods between locations is positively impacting the overall commercial drone market statistics.

Extensive need of drone-based video capture will surge the growth across aerial photography sector

The aerial photography industry accounted for around 30% of the market revenue share in 2020. Aerial photography leads the application segment on account of the convenience and ease with which the technology can be operated for filming, videography, and photography in media & entertainment. The application is widely used in real estate and retail for marketing and business strategies. The companies specializing in imagery technologies are also focusing on the development of aerial photography tools including drones.
