Future Projections Look Brighter than Historical Trends

Extensive penetration of drones for defense and public safety has strengthened the demand for batteries meant to operate them.

Over the past half-decade, the use of drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for resource management and data collection has picked up major pace on a global level, heightening the need for drone batteries.

In the year 2020, COVID-19 hit the commercial industry, causing a domino effect to the drone and battery space in the 2nd quarter of the year; however, the industry started to pace up from the 3rd quarter after deploying drones to aid in breaking the chain of transmission.

After all things considered, analyzing the aggregate market for the same period has portrayed a modest growth in demand, except witnessing a dip in the year 2020.

In FY 2021, post COVID-19 peak; all industries have started to pick pace and close the gaps that resulted with the declaration of an emergency across most countries.

drone battery market region

Demand for drone batteries is set to rumble proportionately with commercial and construction industries. Rise in investments in recreational use of drones has been observed over the period of Q1 of 2021, which is set to have a harmonious effect on the drone battery market over the coming years.

Forecast period assessment can be done by breaking down the period into three assessment periods i.e. Short-run, medium-run, and long-run.

Short-run: COVID-19 has affected the overall commercial industry, excluding daily essential products. The effect brought on by COVID-19 would be overcome by lifting bans, which is set to drive the sector back to the track by Q3 of 2021.

Medium-run: Due to rise in investments in construction industries and other commercial industries where drone implementation has a good fortune, the drone battery market will see greater heights by the mid-term forecast period.

Long-run: Comprehensive impact of product alternatives, up-gradation of regulations in a pool of countries, and other factors on the overall market have been discussed in detail in the report by Fact.MR.

Through 2021, the market is projected to expand at an impressive CAGR of over 8%.

Category-Wise Insights

Why are LiPo batteries more sought-after over NiCad and NiMH?

LiPo attracts most drone manufacturers and customized drone makers. The appealing factors of LiPo batteries are their high energy density, high power to weight ratio, being pliable, and characteristics of high capacity, thus offering high power holding. Unlike Li-Ion batteries, LiPo batteries also offer safety from explosion.

In addition, LiPo batteries can be manufactured in customized shapes and sizes. All these factors have led to this segment holding over 70% market share, which will rise to close to 80% by 2031.

Why are commercial drone batteries expected to witness notable demand in the future?

Commercial drones are expected to behold a prodigious append in industrial applications. Ongoing experimental runs, innovative advancements, and discussions among regulatory bodies to countenance the ply of drones for commercial usage are set to pump up the threshold of drones, compelling the same with drone batteries.

Recreational use is also in the race to push drone batteries to encounter greater opulence. With defense being the eternal segment for drones, the market for drone batteries will flourish over the years to come.

What are the notable barriers for drone battery manufacturers?

One of the predominant barriers that has a notable effect on the drone battery landscape is drones themselves. Regulations set by regulatory bodies on drones have a great influence on the demand for drone batteries.

Increased concerns of governments regarding the privacy of citizens is set to hinder the drone fleet, emanating the effect on the demand for drone batteries across regions.
