The global drone inspection and monitoring market revenue was US$ 7.47 billion in 2021. The global drone inspection and monitoring market revenue is forecast to reach US$ 35.15 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16% during the forecast period from 2022-2030.
The drone inspection and monitoring concept apply to inspection, monitoring, and mapping operations. Companies can use this platform to plan and conduct operations, monitor drones in real-time, and create reports and analyses directly from their offices.
Factors Influencing Market Growth
An increase in the demand for safe, accurate inspection and monitoring devices and technological advancements in drones are forecast to drive growth in the global drone inspection and monitoring market.
The increase in the use of drones for remote visual inspections of critical infrastructure is boosting the overall drone inspection and monitoring market growth.
The lack of trained personnel to operate drones for inspection and monitoring applications has a negative impact on the global drone inspection and monitoring industry.
As lidar technology advances for commercial drones, lucrative opportunities are forecast for the global drone inspection and monitoring market.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19
COVID-19 outbreak spread increased the demand and use of drones, as their benefits outweighed the risks and difficulties of using them. Many countries use them for delivering vaccines for COVID-19 as well as inspecting and monitoring outbreaks in remote areas. Throughout the world, police officers and government officials use drones to accomplish remote policing and impose social distancing.
Lockdowns have been imposed worldwide, along with social distancing protocols. Consequently, drone production was interrupted due to a shortage of raw materials and personnel in 2020. Similarly, in 2021, due to the reemergence of the second wave of infections, drone production suffered, and it may take more than six months for the drone supply chain to resume normal functioning.
During the forecast period, Asia Pacific is forecast to register the highest CAGR for drone inspection and monitoring market. Growing economies like China and India use drones for inspection and monitoring tasks in agriculture and utilities, thus contributing to the growth of this regional market.
North America is forecast to be the largest market during the forecast period. Drones can perform a number of functions without human assistance due to the incorporation of artificial intelligence, such as takeoff, navigation, data collection, transmission, and data analysis. Thus, growing advances in artificial intelligence, sense and avoid systems, and cloud computing technologies contribute to the regional market growth.
