UN Experiments with Drones for Humanitarian Crises to Spur Opportunities

The United Nations (UN) conducted an experiment with drones in order to leverage the technology during humanitarian crises. For instance, in 2017, the World Food Programme (WFP), a food-assistance branch of the UN, partnered with the Belgian government in order to utilize drones during humanitarian emergencies. This would aid the organizations and governments in quick data collection, better accuracy, and provide an advanced monitoring system to analyze the emergency.

Remote Monitoring Amid COVID-19 to Aid Market Growth

Businesses worldwide have shown mixed emotions on the impact of COVID-19. While most markets have experienced a downward slope in their growth column, some have enjoyed unprecedented demand amid the nationwide lockdowns. Governments and bodies alike are constantly monitoring the situation through remote mediums and drones have been a popular choice for the same. The unexpected adoption of drones has propelled the demand for drone sensors during the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market has experienced higher growth of 20.25% in 2020 compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2020.


Driving factors

Extensive Utilization from the Agricultural Industry to Drive Growth

A study published by the Food and Agriculture Organization and the International Telecommunication Union states that over 815 million people faced chronic hunger in 2018. The same study suggests that the volume of food production is expected to increase by 50% by 2050. The increasing demand for food and global hunger are both backed by the rapidly growing population worldwide. Growers across regions are embarking on technologically advanced equipment including drones for the effective production of crops. Agriculture drones are used frequently for various purposes including early warning systems, disaster risk reduction, forestry, fisheries, as well as in wildlife conservation.

The surging applications in the agriculture industry are projected to drive the global drone sensors market growth. In addition, the increasing adoption in various other sectors including, infrastructure, transport, and security is estimated to boost the demand for drone sensors. However, the high risk of damage due to pressure from extreme conditions hinders adoption from some industries, hindering the market growth.

Regional Insights

High Demand from Military & Defense to Propel Demand in North America

North America is estimated to dominate the global drone sensors market share owing to the rapidly growing adoption of drones in the military & defense sector. Military drones are used for various operations in the industry including surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting. In addition, the booming ICT industry in the U.S. is leveraging the equipment for numerous applications. For instance, In June 2019, Amazon revealed that the company is interested in delivering parcels with the help of drones. The company has even got approval from the Federal Aviation Administration for its “prime air delivery” fleet. The market value of the region stood at USD 143.2 million in 2020.


Competitive Landscape

Collaboration with Defense to Help Key Players Enhance their Product Line

Key players operating in the global market are focusing on collaboration with government bodies in order to adopt latest technologies for their operations. This will help them expand their product line. For instance, in November 2020, General Atomic received a USD 93.3 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to develop sensors for the MQ-9 Reaper. Both the parties had come together to implement artificial intelligence in order to control the aircraft sensor.
