On the basis of application, the filming & photography segment is anticipated to witness considerable growth during the forecast period. The key drivers contributing to the growth of this segment include the increasing application of drones for the production of movies, to record events and functions, and to perform aerial photography. With the emergence of drones, the media sector can now cover news in the area where human entry is restricted. Thus, the utilization of drones for efficiently shooting action sequences in films from an aerial view and photographing inaccessible places is paving the way for the growth of the segment in the market. On the other hand, the precision agriculture segment exhibits substantial growth potential and is expected to gain traction during the forecast period. The increasing awareness among the farmers regarding the exceptional advantages offered by commercial drones, such as manages vital operations of farm, provides analysis and planning of crop plantation and field monitoring to help the farmer in determining the growth and health of the crops. All these factors are likely to boost the growth of the precision agriculture segment in the market.

Based on the end-use, the delivery and logistics are projected to emerge as the maximum revenue generating segment over the next six years. One of the biggest factors that are responsible for the accelerating demand of the segment is that the UAVs offer relatively cheaper and quicker delivery of goods from warehouses or factories to the target consumers as compared to the other delivery methods. The usage of drones in this segment will experience an upsurge in the coming years driven by the increasing penetration of online shopping and the rising demand for smart devices. On the other edge, the real estate & construction segment exhibits substantial growth potential over the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing adoption of drones in different real estate and construction projected such as surveying lands, improving safety standards, proving regular updates related to project, and minimizing the possibilities of hazardous situations in the construction site.
On the basis of product type, the demand for fixed-wing drones is poised to expand from 2020 to 2027. The increasing usage of fixed-wing drones for topographic surveys, terrain modeling, and aerial mapping, driven by its ability to fly at high altitude for a longer period of time, is the key driver that is boosting the growth of the segment in the market.

On the basis of the region, the North America region is anticipated to dominate the market during the next six years. This is due to the increasing number of government initiatives related to the increasing technological advancement in drones, followed by the strong demand from businesses for drone-acquired data. In addition to this, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in U.S. has released new regulations to provide more coherent and consistent guidelines related to the legal and safe operation of UAVs in the commercial spaces. All these regulations have decreased the entry barriers and increased product adoption. On the other hand, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to witness a higher CAGR over the forecast period. Nations such as China and Japan are largely adopting automation and advancement in technologies to counter the increasing labor cost. Another factor contributing to the market growth in this region is the higher efficiency of UAVs as compare to manual labor, especially in the agriculture sector.
