Global Agriculture Drone Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Type (Fixed-Wing, Multi Rotor, and Hybrid UAVs), By Application (Spraying, Field Mapping, Crop Scouting and Others), Forecast 2022-2028
The global agriculture drone market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 15.8% during the forecast period. An agriculture drone is a generally unmanned aerial vehicle that is used to optimize operations, monitor crop growth and increases crop productions. The factors attributing to the growth of global agriculture drone markets include growing various drone service providers, increasing funding, real-time farm management, and technological advancement. Other factors such as the increase in precision farming as it has many advantages such as various positing systems and guided vehicles are being developed to create precision farming. Moreover, the rapid growth of the agricultural sector due to more usage of technologically innovative equipment into agricultural practices will be driving the market growth. On the contrary, high initial installation cost, fluctuations in weather conditions and range issues will be hampering the growth of the market. However, with the increasing demand for food, there is constant pressure in increasing agricultural productivity and maintaining good crop health will be creating a significant opportunity for market growth.
Impact of COVID-19 on Global Agriculture Drone Market
It is estimated that the agriculture drone market may witness a decline during 2019-2020 due to the COVID-19 impact. Government policies have disrupted manufacturing and global supply chains, which has had and will continue to have a significant direct and indirect impact on the agriculture drone’s market. Until the COVID-19 outbreak continues it will be resulting in an extended duration of commercial as well as government restrictions. Therefore, this will make agriculture drone manufacturing companies unable to receive raw materials and components for the production of their products. However, according to professionals of the agriculture drone ecosystem, the market will speed up and grow beginning in 2021 as the pandemic has generated the need for various types of machinery required for farming operations. Lack of labor due to pandemic disrupted the easy flow of supply chains and lower productivity and this has increased the need for agricultural robots, drones, machines. This factor will further support the market growth after the pandemic.
The global agriculture drone market is segmented based on type, and application. Based on type, the market is segmented into fixed-wing, multi rotor, and hybrid UAVs. Moreover, based on application, the market is classified into spraying, field mapping, crop scouting and others.

Field Mapping is estimated to have a significant share in Agriculture Drone Market
Among application, field mapping is estimated to have a significant share in the market as its importance is increasing enabling one to monitor land and manage future activities at the same time. Moreover, the development of field mapping farming is attributed to the escalating spread of the IoT and the widespread adoption of remote sensing technology, VRT, and guidance technology by farmers across the globe. The mapping field has various advantages including yield data analysis that enables crop visualizing, crop variability, and also get data on which chemicals are affecting the yield. Further, gives moisture content and once the moisture level is known it enables to decide which area to add or to lessen water input. Further, rising food demand, changing climate, widespread adoption of smart technologies in the global agriculture sector, and increased government initiatives to improve farmer efficiency through new technologies are some of the major factors driving the growth of field mapping farming. However, the high cost of modern agricultural equipment, and lack of technical knowledge and skills, act as segment restraints.
The global agriculture drone market is further segmented based on geography including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America is projected to have the largest market share during the forecast period, attributing to factors such as increasing automation in the agricultural field, increasing adoption of the UAVs from mowing to ploughing enhanced productivity, growing number of service providers in the region. Moreover, growing awareness for precision agriculture for field mapping and crop scouting is influencing farmers to implement UAVs in farming that further driving the growth of the market in the region.
