Small Drones Market – Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2017-2026)

Small Drones Market is expected to grow from USD 6.65 Billion in 2017 to USD 20.83 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 12.1% between 2017 and 2026. (Detailed analysis of the market CAGR is provided in the report)
small drone marketSmall drones are used for collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing data of different objects, structures or areas from numerous sensors. Small drones are remotely operated and collect information with least human intervention and with no need of a person on board. Further, they are useful for the collection of confidential or sensitive information about a private property or a private behavior of the object. Changes in government policies and the increase in the number of exceptions permitted to the companies for the commercial use of Small drones are some of the key factors driving market growth.


Enhanced operational efficiency provided by small drones, a growing need for miniature drones with advanced technology, the rise in the need for enhanced surveillance, and rapid technological advancements and declining prices are the major factors driving the growth of small drone market. However, lack of skilled operators and strict airspace regulations are the key restraining factors for the market growth.

Further key findings from the report:

• Small drones market for commercial applications to hold the largest market share in 2017 owing to rising demand for drones and drone-generated data in commercial applications, increasing use in retail and e-commerce sectors. Additionally, in some countries, the rules for operating drones in the airspace have been relaxed, that is further increasing the adoption rate of commercial drones
• Lithium-ion segment from the propulsion system is expected to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period followed by fuel-cell battery and hybrid propulsion system respectively.
• From payload segment, sensor segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The key factor for the growth of the sensor segment is advancements in capacity and quality features of sensors
• Among geographical regions, APAC is anticipated to hold the largest share of the overall small drones market. This growth can be attributed to innovative technology solutions for drones and aiming to manufacture them at the lowest possible cost. Countries in APAC such as China, India, South Korea, and Australia have increased focus on the production of small drones for use in commercial and defense applications
