Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones are quickly gaining traction across several industries. Primarily used in military operations, commercial drones are growing in demand across many industries including entertainment, supply chain and e-commerce, construction, and security. The most common types of commercial drones available today include remote-operated, semi-autonomous, and fully autonomous. Remote-operated commercial drones are most common but their autonomous variants are also being tested through robust research and development activities. The UAVs have also proven to be useful in relief and rescue missions during natural disasters as a tool to assess the situation from a safe and remote location. Government bodies are readily approving usage for e-commerce market players. All these factors are expected to drive the global commercial drones market to promising business outcomes in the forecast period.
