Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

High Adoption of Smart solutions for filed Monitoring

Since smart solutions are currently being adopted more frequently, drones’ technology is flourishing worldwide. Numerous technological developments have significant effect on farming productivity during the past several years in the agriculture industry. One of these major advances is the employment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which are now often utilized in agricultural operations thanks to cutting-edge hardware and software. The successful development of small, autonomous, and unmanned rotorcraft is due to technological advancements in parts, sensors, and sizes. This is one of the key elements that will fuel market expansion.

Rising demand for automated and ongoing monitoring systems

With greater awareness and the ability to undertake essential activities that people find challenging under the demanding work conditions, the automation sector is constantly evolving. Continuous improvements and a rise in the number of sensor applications across a wide range of industrial verticals have accelerated the development of automation and monitoring systems, allowing company executives to make data-based decisions. In addition, rising awareness regarding the predictive maintenance of heavy industrial machineries and other crucial setups has benefitted end-user industry verticals which also boost the demand of advanced drones in the market. Because there would be fewer battery-operated sensors and lower maintenance costs, this is anticipated to increase demand for agricultural drones.


Data Breach and Policy Restriction

Rise in data privacy issues globally is expected to hinder the market growth. In addition, various exemptions by the United States federal government have ruled out policies in Small Unmanned Aircraft Rule such as unmanned aircraft weight, and flying distance above ground level and many others. Further, the market growth is hampered due to the lack of knowledge for utilizing the tool that analyze and enhance the productivity and hence, find it unattractive to buy agriculture drones. Another key factor such as cybersecurity concerns is hampering the market growth, hence if worked out to eliminate can expand the market in near future.
