Market Synopsis

Increased weight-carrying capacity and better control are driving demand for rotary blade consumer drones.

In 2017, the rotary blade drones segment led the overall consumer drones market worldwide, contributing to nearly 85% of the overall market value 2017. The segment is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to factors such as high durability and robustness coupled with its wide application for photography and drone racing. Rotary-blade drones are extensively used and preferred for aerial photography as they facilitate better control. Moreover, another prominent factor aiding the rotary blade drone segment’s growth is the fact that these kinds of drones are capable of carrying more weight and are easier to control as compared to the fixed-wing variants. As a result, these factors are expected to drive the growth of the rotary blade drone segment during the forecast period.

On the other hand, growth in the Hybrid Consumer Drones segment is expected to be substantial during the forecast period. These types of drones have both fixed wings and rotary blades. One of the factors contributing to this high growth can be attributed to its high adoption for photogrammetry purposes. With increasing consumer drone demand and ease of operation, it is finding increased applications for mapping work. Moreover, these drones are capable of taking off vertically and starting a flight from any spot similar to that of a helicopter, a factor further aiding the segment’s growth. Other benefits of hybrid consumer drones include higher payloads, long endurance flights, and durability.

Favorable Government Initiatives Supporting the Growth of the Consumer Drones Market in North America

In 2017, North America dominated the global consumer drone market, accounting for roughly 40% of the total market value. Factors such as the increasing adoption of drones for aerial imaging and the covering of events through filming and video have contributed to the consumer drone market’s growth. Moreover, favorable government initiatives have further supported market growth in the region. For example, the FAA’s (Federal Aviation Administration) relaxation of restrictions on the use of drones for recreational and non-recreational purposes in the United States has been a welcome development for the market’s growth. Furthermore, the fact that a large number of consumer drone manufacturers, such as Horizon Hobby, 3D Robotics, and UDI RC, among others, have their headquarters in the region has supported the market growth.

R&D activities will continue to take center stage in the coming years.

One of the most common strategies adopted by players in the consumer drone market is research and development, which is directed toward improving existing products and developing new drones with better functionalities. For instance, recently, DJI launched a new drone called the Spark, which is a palm-sized and very lightweight drone. One of the features of the new drone is that users can launch it right from their palms due to its small size. Similarly, in 2018, Skydio launched the R1 drone, which features a self-positioning action camera. The drone was designed with the purpose of recording the person it is following.
