Earth Observation Drone Market with Top of Industry Trends 2027-2028

Increasing demand for drones owing to their versatile applications and enhanced technologies in drones are the factors driving the Global Earth Observation Drone Market.

According to the TechSci Research report, Earth Observation Drone Market-Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2018-2028F”,

Global Earth Observation Drone market is anticipated to surge in the upcoming years. The rising usage of drone in commercial and industrial purpose is the major growth factor for earth observation drone market. Drone can gather a large amount of geospatial data efficiently; their operational ability is quick and is cost effective compared to satellite imagery, thus leading to increasing growth in drone market.

Owing to its growing use in industries such as the oil and gas industry, mining, search and rescue, disaster management, environmental monitoring, and agriculture, drone technology has also experienced tremendous growth. In addition to the military, commercial, and civil government end-users, the demand for drones has expanded to include drone applications in the fields of law enforcement, emergency response, and critical infrastructure monitoring, spurring further development of small payload and sensor varieties as well as sensor agnostic drones. Additionally, the use of drones for aerial photography and filmmaking has significantly influenced the drone industry.

Drone adoption is rising in a variety of civil-government and industrial applications thanks to the dynamic use of drones during the COVID-19 era. These include using drones to inspect infrastructure, such as railways, bridges, and oil and gas fields. Drones and autonomous airborne systems are currently more in demand for tasks such as monitoring construction sites and conducting inspections of solar panels. Countries all over the world have relaxed regulations pertaining to drone operation, to meet this demand and support the Earth Observation Drone Industry. As of 2021, 29,500 drones had registered in India and the government also took initiative to create database of these type of unmanned flying devices.

The Earth observation drones are outfitted with a variety of payloads, including cameras, electrical systems and subsystems, and sensors including accelerometers, LiDAR hyperspectral, multispectral, infrared, electro-optical, RGB (Red Green Blue), and ground-penetrating radars. Modern drones are also equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology, which automate drone operations and enable drones to fly safely over any environmentally demanding terrain. Aside from reducing or eliminating human intervention, automation aids in the drones’ rapid arrival at their target and swift return to the original takeoff area.
