Global commercial drone market size is estimated to reach USD 2,069.6 million by 2022, as per a new research report by Radiant Insights, Inc. Increasing application of these machines in various industry sectors such as military, agriculture and energy among others is expected to drive industry demand. Growing investments in industrialized markets for technology innovation and commercialization is likely to provide opportunities for future applications in the commercial drones market.

Drones are being increasingly used for commercial purposes such as delivering products to customers without hiring a driver. For instance, Dominos adopted these machines in order to deliver food items. In addition, solar powered drones with five years airborne capacity are increasingly used as mobile access points to provide internet access in remote areas. Media and entertainment industries are expected to fuel the demand considerably owing to its small size and flying capability. These machines are also used in real estate industry to capture aerial shots of the infrastructure.

Rotary blade accounted for over 75% of the overall industry share in 2014. It is expected to dominate the industry due to its fixed position hovering and multi-directional flying capability. Nano drone was valued at USD 38.7 million in 2014 and is projected to witness highest growth rate over the forecast period. This spur can be addressed to its portability and efficient application in security and photography activities.

Event organizers are increasingly using drones for safety and proper crowd management. Growing usage in law enforcement activities is projected to fuel the demand. It is mainly used to gather evidence and also investigate crime scenes by capturing high definition videos as well as photos.  

Strict government norms regarding safety and privacy concerns are anticipated to hinder the industry growth. Scarcity of trained pilots in the industry owing to lack of training and career opportunities pose as a key challenge to the industry demand. Commercial drones are anticipated to witness significant growth opportunities due to increasing demand from agriculture industry for crop management to augment yields.
