The global agriculture drones market size is anticipated to register a considerable CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the growing venture funding for deployments of drones in agriculture sector.

Agriculture Drones Market

Agriculture drones are unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) used in agriculture for monitoring crop growth and production. The UAVs fill the gaps of human error and inefficiency of traditional farming by minimizing time and expenses.  Typically, drones includes a high-quality cameras, navigation system, multiple sensors, GPS, and programmable controllers. The data collected from drones reveal various issues, such as irrigation problems, soil variation, degree of crop damage, and infection to plants. External weather changes globally are creating new layers of complexity in the agriculture industry, which boosts the need for agriculture drones to improve crop yield and firm efficiency. Agricultural drones offer various benefits, such as enhanced production, agricultural spraying, less wastage of resources, and faster process.

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has negative impact on the market. During pandemic, manufacturing plants were not operational, supply chain disrupted, and less availability of raw material affected the demand of agriculture drones. The market is expected to recover soon as farmers are adapting advanced technology to recover from the loss they faced due to the lockdown imposed by various government bodies.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increasing acceptance of precision farming solution is one of the key factors driving the market growth.
  • Rising need for a reduction in cost associated with human error is projected to boost the market during the forecast period.
  • Escalating regulation by government regrading use of UAVs acts as a major challenge that can restrict the market growth in the coming years.
  • Lack of awareness about drones among the farmers especially in developing countries is expected to hamper the market growth during the projected timeline.
  • Growing automation in farming and agriculture industries is anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for the market.

Market Segment Insights

Fixed-wing segment to expand at robust growth rate

Based on product types, the global agriculture drones market is segmented into hybrid, fixed-wing, and rotary blade. The fixed-wing segment is estimated to expand at robust growth rate during the forecast period due to the ability to cover long distances over fields and carry heavy payloads. However, the hybrid segment is anticipated to expand at a substantial CAGR in the coming years attributed to as they are suitable fit for diverse farming process and applications.

Agriculture Drones Market

Increasing yield drives the field mapping segment

On the basis of applications, the market is segregated into crop scouting, field mapping, variable rate application, and others. The field mapping segment is projected to register at high CAGR in the projected timeline owing to benefits it offer, such as analyzing and monitoring crops for increasing yield from agriculture in less expenses. On the other hand, the crop scouting segment is anticipated to register a substantial CAGR during the forecast period attributed to its ability to precisely spray fertilizers, without causing any issues, including disturbing soil fertility and over spraying.  Additionally, the development of the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, for inspecting crops with respect to crops scouting is major driver of the segment.

Asia Pacific is to constitute a key market share

In terms of region, the global agriculture drones market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is anticipated to constitute a key share of the market during the projected period owing to economies in the region which are continuously increasing investments in R&D, to boost the adoption of agriculture drones . However, the market of North America is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the rising trend of implementing the UAVs from mowing to plowing in the region for enhanced productivity.
