Drone Sensors Market to Reach USD 2,391.5 million by 2032, driven by the growth in investment in healthcare infrastructure across the globe: Global Insight Services

New York, July 2023: According to a new research study by Global Insight Services (GIS), the global Drone Sensors market is expected to grow rapidly over the next 10 years to reach a value of more than USD 2,391.5 million by 2032.

The drone is a flying robot or aircraft with onboard sensors, a global positioning system, and software that allows it to be remotely controlled or fly on its own. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Aircraft Systems are other names for drones (UAS). Previously, Unnamed Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) were only employed for military-related tasks like training for air defense target engagements, information gathering, and, more controversially, as a platform for carrying weapons.

Drone Sensors Market: Key Trends and Drivers

The integration of advanced technologies is anticipated to boost the growth of the global drone sensors market. AI technology deployment in drones is becoming more common, owing to the global emphasis on the development of completely autonomous commercial drones. Newer drone models are outfitted with AI-powered flight controllers, allowing them to fly independently and make real-time decisions without human intervention. When combined with other technologies such as LiDAR and IoT, the UAV can also solve the need to supply, operate, and maintain public utilities in rural areas. For instance, in July 2022, Microsoft launched a simulator to train AI systems in drones. The simulator would help in software development and training also allowing them to track how winds may affect the battery life. AI continues to transform enterprises through automation and is emerging as a source of long-term competitive advantages. In the drone industry, AI algorithms detect flaws, leaks, and failures, reducing downtime. The reliance on commercial UAVs will increase as people become more aware of the importance of AI in complicated robot development. Similarly, investment in medical drone delivery has increased, allowing companies to widen their footprints. For instance, in February 2022, Phystech Ventures, a U.S.-based venture capital firm, stated that there had been a USD 5 billion investment in drone technology in the past two years.

Drone Sensors Market: Restraints and Challenges

The growing concern regarding to data safety associated with the commercial and civil applications of drones. Security concerns about the usage of drones may limit the commercial drone market’s expansion. Safety is a fundamental element to prioritize when operating drone technology. UAVs outfitted with high-quality sensors recognize possible collisions and safely engineer their way around them, making them a significant trait. These drone capacities must resemble those of manned aircraft navigators. It is commendable to hire professional drone service providers who can operate an aerial drone without crashing it. Drones operated in heavily-populated regions have an amplified risk of ground impact or damage, mainly due to system malfunction or hacking. Drones also pose a significant danger to aircraft as they can be sucked into the turbines of aircraft if there is a proximity between them, causing significant damage to the propulsion systems. The drones could be hijacked by tampering with the frequency-hopping sensors used in devices that use radio communications. The safety and privacy concerns related to drones are expected to hamper the growth of the market in focus during the forecast period.

Drone Sensors Market Report Findings


The inertial sensors segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period

Based on the type, it is segmented into inertial sensor, image sensor, speed & distance sensor, position sensor, pressure sensor, light sensor, current sensor, altimeter sensor, and others. The inertial sensors segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Inertial measurement units may be used to provide data for an Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), which calculates real-time attitude and heading for manned and unmanned aircraft, or an Inertial Navigation System (INS), which calculates position in addition to orientation. For instance, Quartz MEMS IMUs use an inertial sensing element that is micro-machined from a single piece of quartz and driven by an oscillator to vibrate at a precise amplitude.

The navigation segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period

Based on the application, it is segmented into navigation, collision detection & avoidance, data acquisition, motion detection, air pressure measurement, and others. The navigation segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Electronic compasses in drones give inertial navigation and guidance systems crucial directional data. Drone applications benefit from the improved accuracy and response time features of anisotropic magneto resistive (AMR) permalloy technology sensors, which use substantially less power than competing technologies. Manufacturers of drones can get high-quality data sensing from turnkey solutions in a highly durable and small design.

The fixed-wing segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period

Based on the platform type, it is segmented into VTOL, fixed-wing, and hybrid. The fixed-wing segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. A VTOL can independently and safely opt for take off and land vertically with the use of highly sensitive sensors on a smaller area, and thus, they will perform effectively in the most difficult terrains with minimal noise. It is hence, being considered as a viable option for combat operations and further, battle damage management in various military applications. VTOL drones are also, expected to become a prominent part of the most important equipment in various life-threatening military missions. The most common type of VTOL UAV is a multi-copter drone.

The construction segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period

Based on the end user, it is segmented into construction, media & entertainment, precision agriculture, personal, security & surveillance, defense, law enforcement, transportation, and others. The construction segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. The drone helps in collecting aerial footage of the construction site before, during, and after the project as per requirement and easing tasks. The advantage of using drones over the manual construction method is the fact that is saves time, and effort and reduces the risk involved. Drones are a viable tool that offers benefits ranging from on-site safety to remote monitoring. It provides construction contractors with broad, accurate, and detailed aerial information.

The North American region is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period

Region-wise, it is studied across the North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American region is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Developed economies such as the U.S., and Canada, have excellent integration of technology through smart & advanced equipment for improving production output over the past several years. Several farmers are dependent on smart agriculture equipment comprising drone technology to improve productivity. Strong growth in the United States and Canada, is responsible for the dominance of North America in the drone sensor market. Different companies are launching new products in the North American market. For instance, in November 2021, AgEagle announced the launch of MicaSense’s Altum-PT. An optimized 3-in-1 sensor integrating ultra-high resolution, panchromatic imaging and thermal imaging to provide unlimited analytical capabilities at leaf-level resolution.
