Commercial Drone Sensors Market Overview:

Commercial Drone Sensors Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 28.2% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.

The world has witnessed a sudden hike in the popularity of UAVs in the recent past, owing to continuous technological developments and rising demands for dealing with complicated and hazardous tasks in an easy and safe manner. Earlier, drones were merely used for military operations and strategic surveillances, but today, these versatile machines have found their way in numerous other application areas.

Factors impacting the market:

A rapid growth of industrialization is also a major propelling force which is catalyzing the demand for infrared and thermal imaging sensors. Increasing government initiatives for promoting precision agriculture and rising level of awareness among the farmers regarding the usage of agriculture drones for crop health analysis are acting as the major factors which are eventually boosting the market growth. However, current UAVs technologies are quite immature, as compared to manned aerial vehicles, in terms of automatic sensing, detecting and avoiding hindrance such as power lines, bushes, trees, towers and even birds. Moreover, challenges regarding power consumption of IR sensors, charging issues, collision avoidance and network security might hinder the growth of the very market segment. 

Key players operating in the market:

First Sensor, Raytheon, Trimble, Teledyne Technologies Inc., FLIR Systems, Triple-IN GmbH, ON Semiconductor, SICK AG, Olympus, Velodyne LiDAR, BOSCH, Leica Geosystems, Sony, TE Connectivity, Toshiba, Sparton Navex, Systron Donner Inertial, AMS AG, Leddartech, Sensirion, Questuav, UTC Aerospace Systems and Swift Navigationamong others.
