Research and Markets Logo

The drone sensor market is expected to grow from USD 345.6 million in 2018 to USD 1,007.6 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 23.86% between 2018 and 2023.

Key factors driving the growth of the market include the rising demand for higher resolution imaging for mapping & surveying and accurate positioning for accurate navigation, increased crop vigor analysis for precision farming, and growing demand for drones from the commercial and logistic sectors for payload delivery.

Among all applications, the drone sensor market for the defense industry is expected to be grow at the highest rate between 2018 and 2023. Drones are being employed by militaries for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), electronic warfare, and strike missions. Resupply, combat search and rescue, aerial refueling, and air combat are some of the upcoming applications of drones in the military sector. The availability of advanced navigation and satellite communication technologies has made the option of remotely operating drones more viable. Drones can reduce collateral damage while hovering, searching, identifying, and striking targets; this makes them an invaluable asset for the military sector.

Hybrid platforms are expected to be a fast-growing platform for drone sensors during the forecast period. Hybrid drones comprises the advantages of better payload capacity and extended flight time and are, therefore, finding increased application in military surveillance and agriculture segments.

North America is expected to hold the largest share of the drone sensors market throughout the forecast period. Increasing use of drones to cover numerous sporting events by leading media houses is contributing to the growth of the drone sensor market for the media industry in this region. Military & defense is one of the largest application areas for drone sensors in North America. Rising adoption of drones in precision agriculture is also fueling the growth of the market for drone sensors during the forecast period. In addition, the oil & gas industry will also be a major contributor to the growth of the market as the use of drones to inspect oil & gas pipelines is increasing.

Tampering/hacking of drones is one of the major factors restraining the growth of the drone sensor market. Trimble (US), Bosch Sensortec (Germany), TDK InvenSense (Japan), Sparton NavEx (US), Raytheon (US), ams AG (Austria), and Systron Donner Inertial (US) are the leading players in the drone sensor market.
