The global consumer drones market size was $3,522.60 million in 2021, and the market size will advance at a CAGR of 14.2% during 2021–2030, to reach $11,662.60 million by 2030. This is attributed to the growing usage of drones in aerial photography, sports, and delivery services across the globe.
Consumer drones are airborne devices that can access regions where humans and other vehicles have limited mobility. They can be piloted using software and a wireless remote control and equipped with all the necessary sensors, GPS, product loading and offloading mechanism, and even cameras.
Drones allow people to see in the distance, since they are equipped with cameras. The camera aids in flying level detection and guarantees that users receive steady aerial photography and videography. With the sensor-based flying robots in the air, pilots can see potential threats in the air.
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR, of around 15%, during the forecast period. This is majorly due to the established foothold of major consumer electronics players in China, Japan, and India. Drones are already popular among regional militaries, and with governments lifting the restrictions on their usage by civilians, their adoption in the retail, agriculture, entertainment, and real estate sectors is growing as well.
China is a leading revenue contributor since hundreds of new competitors are entering the Chinese drone market, which could dramatically lower the average selling price of UAVs in the next few years. Moreover, investors and businesspersons looking for opportunities in the Chinese drone market should be aware of the strong competition here.
The market for consumer drones is booming as a result of manufacturing breakthroughs. New drone model specifications include a longer range, higher speeds, navigation systems that can be connected to the user's phone, and easy-to-use control systems. Consumer drones come with a range of components, including motor drivers and angle and position sensors.
Some of the major players in the consumer drones’ market are Eachine, 3D Robotics Inc., Parrot Drone SAS, Horizon Hobby LLC, Yuneec Holding Ltd., and Jianjian Technology Co. Ltd.
