Drones are aircraft/flying devices without a human pilot aboard. UAVs are a component of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) which include a UAV, a system of communications between the two and a ground-based controller. The flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy either autonomously by onboard computers or under remote control by a human operator. Commercial Drones Market is expected to grow at an exponentially high CAGR for the forecasted period of 2018-2023.

Drones also known as unmanned aerial vehicles are mainly used for military purposes. The factors that augment the growth of the market are increasing demand in varied applications, reduction in size and technical advancement. The drones are being used for varied purposes for surveying forest and oil fields to agricultural purposes. Drones are used in entertainment industry for using varied camera angles; especially in sports and live events. Drones are also being used for e commerce and cargo deliveries. Drones are also being used by law enforcement agencies. Though, high prices, strict government regulations, limited commercialization, and air traffic security and safety issues are some of the few restraining factors that act as a barrier in the growth of the global commercial drone’s market in the forecasted year.
