Drone Power Source Market To Reach $ 5.33 Billion By

Pune, India, July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The global market size for drone power sources was $ 2.45 billion in 2020. The market is expected to grow from $ 2.57 billion in 2021 to 5, 33 billion USD in 2028 at a CAGR of 11.0% over the period 2021-2028. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights ™, in its report entitled, “Drone Power Source Market Size, Share and COVID-19 Impact Analysis, by Drone Type (MALE, HALE, Special Mission Drone, Medium and Small Drone, Nano Drone, and Passenger Drone), by power source (fuel cells, battery, solar energy) Cells) by flight time (less than one hour, 1 hour to 25 hours, 25 hours to 50 hours and more than 50 hours), by point of sale ( OEM & Aftermarket), By End User (Commercial & Military) and Regional Forecast, 2021 – 2028.

According to our researchers, the increasing adoption of drones in established and emerging economies has led to an increase in demand for modern drone power sources. The increasing requirements for surveillance drones by military and military forces are ensuring increased sales of their energy sources.

For example, in April 2021, the United States Naval Research Laboratory examined solar foils and hydrogen fuel powered by a Tiger cell fusion unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). This strategic drone has documented a flight time of 24 hours. This is expected to amplify the demand and promote the growth of the Drone Power Sources market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19: positive commercial sales observed in the midst of a pandemic

The overall impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the market has been recorded as positive. The industry is seeing an increase in demand for medical industry transport drones to deliver drugs and vaccines to remote areas.

For example, according to the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), amid the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 18 countries have organized drones to transport laboratory testers and drugs, the aerial spraying of disinfectants and supervision and regulation of communal areas.

Additionally, in May 2021, Blue Dart, one of the leading logistics companies, said it had performed an experimental drone test to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to remote areas below the “Medicine from the Sky” mission. . This plan was administered in association with the Telangana State Government, Niti Aayog, the World Economic Forum and Healthnet Global.
