Dublin, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Drone Logistics and Transportation Market by Solution (Warehousing, Shipping, Infrastructure, Software), Sector (Commercial, Military), Drone (Freight Drones, Passenger Drones, Ambulance Drones), and Region - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The drone logistics and transportation market is projected to grow from USD 11.20 billion in 2022 to USD 29.06 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 21.01% during the forecast period.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are remotely piloted aerial vehicles that have significant roles in the defense and commercial sectors. UAVs, also known as drones, are increasingly used for border surveillance. They are also used in various commercial applications, such as monitoring, surveying & mapping, precision agriculture, aerial remote sensing, and product delivery.

Thus, the increasing use of drones in commercial and military applications is one of the most significant factors projected to drive the growth of the drone logistics and drone transportation market. The European and Asia Pacific regions are expected to be the new revenue-generating markets for unmanned aerial vehicles. Exemptions made by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to allow the use of drones in several industries are also contributing to the growth of the drone logistics and drone transportation market.

Based on sector, the commercial segment is estimated to lead the drone logistics and drone transportation market in 2022. The increasing use of drones for various types of applications, such as inventory management, inventory tracking, parcel delivery, delivery of medical supplies, and food delivery has resulted in the growth of the commercial segment.

Based on drone, the <10kg (delivery drones) sub segment of freight drone segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR than the >10KG (cargo drones) sub segment, during the forecast period. Increased investments by major companies, such as Amazon, Google, Wal-Mart, FedEx, and UPS are expected to push the growth of the <10kg (delivery drones) segment.

The Asia Pacific region is estimated to lead the drone logistics and drone transportation market in 2022. China, Japan, India, and Australia are key countries considered for market analysis in this region. Increasing defense expenditures of China and Japan and the presence of major UAV manufacturers in Asia Pacific are key factors contributing to the growth of the drone logistics and drone transportation market in this region.
