Agricultural Drones Market By Application (Variable Rate Application (VRA), Crop Scouting, Field Mapping) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 -2026

The global market for agricultural drones has been witnessing incremental growth over the last few years. The trend is expected to continue as the market evolves, providing significant growth and investment opportunities for manufacturers during the forecast period of 2018-2026. The growth in demand can be largely credited to rising agricultural income and the availability of flexible credit facilities for purchasing mechanized agricultural equipment for improving productivity. Steady growth in demand for organic food has increased worldwide agricultural production. Farmers across the globe are looking for advanced solutions to improve farm productivity and profit margins. Using sensors and digital imaging capabilities, agricultural drones allow farmers to collect high-resolution pictures of their fields, thereby enabling them to monitor crop growth and yield and improve farm efficiency. Improving farm income, rising demand for organic food products and a shift towards mechanized farming are expected to spur the demand for agricultural drones in the coming years. All these factors are collectively expected to contribute towards a double-digit CAGR during the forecast period (2018–2026).

The high upfront cost of drones, combined with the technical complexities involved in their installation and operation, has been identified as the major impediment to the widespread adoption of agricultural drones, particularly among farmers in price-sensitive emerging economies. The high cost involved makes it difficult for small-scale farmers to invest in these systems and gain reasonable profits.
