Global Drone Delivery Market Forecast, 2023-2030
The introduction of drones in the delivery service market has rapidly transformed the process of deliveries, further leading to a change in consumer behavior. Drones or autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are a popular option for last-mile deliveries, essentially parcels for remote or rural areas with less population density. Since it is expected that instant or same-day delivery will grow in the next ten years, door-to-door delivery has been a major area of research by several firms such as Google, DHL, UPS, and Amazon. Some of these companies have been testing drone delivery services since 2005 and are expected to launch their services by 2023. The global drone delivery market is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period 2023-2030. The drone delivery service market is majorly growing due to the increasing demand for instant deliveries, especially in the case of medical supplies and food essentials. Drone regulations and rapid advancements in technologies related to UAVs are also playing an important role in market growth. The growing need for healthcare deliveries such as blood samples and medicines, especially in remote areas or during any global epidemic, is also one of the major reasons behind the expected drift from traditional package delivery system to drone delivery services.
