The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) were earlier used for the military and defense operations. Later with the technological advancements, its potential for commercial applications was identified. Before 2014, the use of UAV drones for commercial applications was highly regulated in major countries such as the United States. Post 2014, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has relaxed the norms for the use of UAV drones for commercial applications, and also FAA has started giving exemptions to companies to make commercial use of drones under Section 333 with some restrictions. As of September 2, 2015, FAA has granted 1,439 exemptions for the commercial use of drones. The global UAV drones market is expected to reach USD 5.59 Billion by 2020, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 32.22% between 2015 and 2020.

The scope of the report comprises the study of small unmanned aerial vehicles which weigh less than 55 pounds (under 25 kgs), including payload used for the various commercial and consumer applications. The report study is best suited for product manufacturers, technology solution providers, forums, alliances, and associations, technology investors among others.

The scope of the report comprises the study of small unmanned aerial vehicles which weigh less than 55 pounds (under 25 kgs), including payload used for the various commercial and consumer applications. The report study is best suited for product manufacturers, technology solution providers, forums, alliances, and associations, technology investors among others.

The report focuses on the study of small UAV drones which are used for the commercial applications such as law enforcement/public safety, precision agriculture, media and entertainment, retail, inspection/monitoring, surveying/mapping, hobbyist and do-it-yourself (DIY), and education. Among all the commercial applications, precision agriculture application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 42.25% during the forecast period.

The report also segments the global UAV drones market by type and by geography. By type segmentation, drones comprises rotary blade, fixed wing, nano, and hybrid drones. Among such types, the rotary blade drones market held the largest market share in 2014, and it is expected to reach USD 4.93 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 31.42% between 2015 and 2020. Rotary blade drones are widely preferred by the professionals from the media and entertainment industry for video shooting and photography.

The growth of this market is propelled by increase in demand from the media and entertainment industry, adoption of drones for precision agriculture, and continuous technology additions are some of the significant growth drivers for the UAV drones market. However, the scarcity of trained pilots, security and safety concerns, and air traffic management are the key factors that are restraining the growth of the UAV market. In addition to this, the development of low cost, reliable, and highly automated commercial drones pose a key challenge for the industry players.

The UAV drones market is dominated by the key players such as DJI (China), Parrot S.A. (France), 3D Robotics Inc. (U.S.), PrecisionHawk (U.S.) among others.
