“One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the Rise in Application of Drones,” says a senior analyst for the Industrials industry at Technavio.

The use of drones is highly preferred as they effectively deliver goods in a shorter time than road transport. Moreover, the use of drones for delivery helps in overcoming the limitations caused by the increasing traffic congestion. Furthermore, drones are also intensively being deployed in disaster management applications and are used to deliver food, medical kits, and other packages to people stuck in disasters. Additionally, drones are witnessing increased applications in the field of agriculture, weather forecasting, town planning, mining, surveying, and several commercial uses. Therefore, the high growth potential of the market has spurred venture capital investments in companies developing drones and their software. This has also led various governing bodies to legalize commercial drone operations. Thus, technological advances and its use in diversified applications will significantly influence the growth of the global commercial drones market during the forecast period.

As the markets recover Technavio expects the commercial drones market size to grow by USD 20.39 billion during the period 2020-2024.
