The drone package delivery market is projected to grow from USD 228 million in 2022 to USD 5,556 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 49.0% from 2022 to 2030. Development of aerial delivery drones for use in geographically challenging areas, and Incorporation of IoT in ecosystem of delivery drones are some of the factors fueling the growth of the market.
The commercial applications of drones have grown in the past couple of years due to the development of vision and collision avoidance systems that have made drones safe for use in public places. In the coming years, these collision avoidance systems are expected to further improve with the development of sensors that could guide drones in case of failure of vision systems. These sensors are expected to work effectively in fog and other extreme weather conditions, where normal cameras become ineffective. AI is the next focus of the drone industry. This new technology is expected to enable drones to perform all tasks, right from their launch and navigation to data acquisition, data transmission, and data analysis. The incorporation of AI in drones will also reduce the amount of skills required by UAV pilots.
