Delivery drones are a recent idea that has grabbed eyeballs of several e-commerce sectors owing to possibilities of quick, efficient delivery services that can also curb the delivery cost significantly. Several industries such as e-commerce, quick service restaurants, convenience stores, and healthcare sectors are finding it quite easy to deliver service on time which is giving the delivery drones market substantial scope for operation. The global delivery drones industry is expected to gain from these interests shown by market titans like Google and Amazon, and achieve 20% ACGR during the forecast period (2018-2023).

Rapidly enhancing technology and evolving industry are sure to provide the delivery drones market much traction in the coming years. However, the delivery drones industry is facing some serious issues in terms of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approvals. At the same time, it has to be delivered within a range of 10 km which can be a market restraint. Proper manoeuvring knowledge is also required to operate such devices which is a skill lacking in the market.

MRFR in their latest analysis of the delivery drones industry segmented it by type, component, application, and capacity. The segmentation reveals prospects in better lights for future references.

By type, the delivery drones market can be segmented into rotary-wing drones and fixed-wing drones. Rotary wings are suitable for deliveries owing to their ability to vertical take-off and landing. Hence, the rotary-wing segment is getting better opportunities in the market and its expansion is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.  

Based on the component, the delivery drones industry comprises airframe, controller system, navigation system, propulsion system, battery, and others. Reduced size, durability, and improved features are qualities that manufacturers and service providers are looking for owing to which the airframe segment can now gain the fastest growth rate during the forecast period.

Based on the application, the delivery drones market consists e-commerce, Quick Service Restaurants (QSR), convenience stores, healthcare, and others. With several e-commerce brands eyeing for substantial profit, this segment is bound to register the fastest growth rate over the review period.

Based on the capacity, the delivery drones market can be segmented into less than 10kg and more than 10kg. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)  regulations only provide permission for objects weighing less than 10kg. Hence, the growth woul be for less than 10 kg segment much higher than the rest.
