The agriculture industry has emerged as one of the major end-users in the commercial UAV market. They are used for a wide range of applications such as planting, soil and field analysis, crop monitoring, health assessment, crop spraying and irrigation in the complete crop cycle. Other use cases include producing a precise 3D map for soil analysis, which can guide in planning of seed planting patterns. A drone-driven method of soil analysis offers data for nitrogen level and irrigation management, which is also estimated to be a major factor driving the commercial UAV market demand.

Over the recent years, the commercial drone/UAV market has garnered immense popularity owing to the substantial increase in civil applications of unmanned aerial vehicles. It is quite a well-known fact that the commercial utilization of unmanned aerial vehicles has been steadily rising since the early 1980s. However, a significant increase in investments and the relaxation of some regulatory norms across the globe have opened up an array of practical applications of drones across numerous business domains. This has, in consequence, acted as a pivotal factor in propelling the commercial drone/UAV market share in the recent times. In fact, as per a research report by Global Market Insights, Inc., the global commercial drone/UAV industry commanded a total valuation of over USD 2 billion in the year 2016.

Asia Pacific is estimated to gain substantial growth during the forecast period owing to the rapid increase in awareness for civilian drone applications and relaxation by government for the use of UAVs for commercial purposes. Furthermore, the presence of substantial number of drone’s manufacturers in the region, especially in China, such as DJI and Xiaomi, is also estimated to be drive the growth of the commercial UAV market. The market is also aided by adoption of drones by the customers and enterprises in fields such as agriculture, retail, and construction.
