The commercial drones market has witnessed significant technological developments, partnerships across the value chain, and new product launch announcements in the past few years. Commercial drones are extremely energy-efficient and have considerably lower operating costs as compared to the manned aircraft vehicles. They have been used in various applications, especially in the field of agriculture since the 1980s.
UAVs available on the market have evolved due to technical advancements in drone units, their smooth and simple operating techniques, and low maintenance and operation costs. Commercial drones are available in different sizes and can be controlled either by a remote control from a vehicle or from the ground or autonomously by an onboard computer.
UAVs are becoming more prevalent across multi-role airframe platforms. However, they mainly fall into one of the following six categories: Combat, civil and commercial UAVs, target and decoy, logistics, research and development, and reconnaissance. The commercial drone units also feature a broad range of internal loads such as an all-weather GA-ASI Lynx® synthetic aperture radar/ground moving target indicator (SAR/GMTI), 2,000 lb payload, maximizing long loiter capabilities, and an Electro-optical/Infrared (EO/IR) sensor.
All these characteristics in drone units are designed for multi-mission intelligence, high-speed, endurance, precision-strike missions over sea or land, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR).
The demand for commercial drones is high in fields such as law enforcement, manufacturing, military, sports, media and entertainment, scientific research, energy and power, and infrastructure. The oil and gas industry, border patrol, utilities, police departments, and defense industry are a few major fields using commercial drones for various purposes.
Geographically, several countries in Europe are growing well in terms of adopting and integrating commercial drones into their own airspace policies. However, not all countries are embracing the adoption of commercial drones due to their regional rules and regulations.
