are more commonly known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Essentially, a drone is a flying robot which can be remotely controlled or can fly autonomously through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems working in synchronization with GPS. UAVs have most often been associated with the military but they are also used for search and rescue, surveillance, traffic monitoring, weather monitoring, agricultural practices and fire fighting, among other things. Globally demand for agricultural drone market is driven by factors such as increasing trends of innovative and automated farming practices globally.
IndustryARC report identifies the agricultural drone market
size in for the year 2014-2016, and forecast of the same for year 2021. It also highlights the potential growth opportunities in the coming years, while also reviewing the market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to agricultural uav market.
Globally North America dominated the agricultural uav market closely followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. However demand for agricultural drones is expected to witness highest growth in the Asia-Pacific in the upcoming future due to increasing technological access to the rural parts of the region and innovation in the farming practices in the region. In terms of applications field mapping dominated the global agricultural drones market, however crop spraying application is expected to witness fastest growth in the agricultural drone market due to various advantages such as time saving, uniform spraying which can be attained using agricultural drones in this application.This report on agricultural drones has been divided based on rotor type, battery life and applications as follows:
