New York, Sept. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global inspection drones market size is slated to expand at ~ 24 % CAGR between 2023 and 2035. The market is poised to garner a revenue of USD 35 billion by the end of 2035, up from a revenue of ~USD 4 billion in the year 2022.  The major factor influencing the growth of the market is growing mining activities. For instance, an estimated 21 million metric tons of copper were produced from mines globally in 2022. From about 15 million metric tons in 2010, the output of copper has increased steadily throughout the world during the past ten years. Hence, the need for inspection drones is also on rise.

In underground mining operations, drone technology replaces the role of humans to track the security of the site, the state of the ground, the walls of the tunnels, the blasting zones, and other locations, allowing any concerns to be identified without putting personnel at risk. Moreover, mines that are making some sort of investment in drones have grown from about 43% in 2018 to approximately 64% in 2022, while about 31% of mines responding to the research study carried out in 2022 globally indicate they have either entirely invested in drones or have made a sizeable investment. As a result, this is going to influence the market revenue in the coming years.

Inspection Drones Market: Key Takeaways  

  • Market in the North America region to garner the highest share.
  • The Oil & gas segment to garner the highest revenue.
  • Market in Asia Pacific region to grow at a notable rate.

Surge in Demand for Wind Energy to Boost the Growth of Global Inspection Drones Market

In 2022, about 76 GW of additional wind generating capacity was added to the world’s power systems, bringing the total installed wind capacity to approximately 905 GW1, an increase of about 8% from 2021. However, to avoid damage from use, that can lower the effectiveness and longevity of a turbine’s structural components, wind turbines need regular maintenance and inspections. A drone inspection of a wind turbine may detect important issues including blade delamination, core flaws, internal component failure, and others as part of the regular upkeep process. Additionally, compared to conventional inspection techniques, a drone wind turbine inspection delivers more thorough data and may expeditiously complete the inspection.

Inspection Drones Market: Regional Overview 

The global inspection drones market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region. 

Growing Reconstruction Activities to Drive the Growth of the Market in North America

North America inspection drones market is anticipated to garner share of about 31% over the forecast period. The growth of the sector in this region could be owing to growing reconstruction activities in North America. In the United States, there are more than 616,000 bridges. In 2021, about 46,153, or approximately 6% of all bridges in the country, were deemed technically deficient, which means they are in “poor” condition and account for about 41% of all bridges that were not less than 50 years old. Unfortunately, close to 177 million journeys per day happen across these bridges, which are structurally unsound. However, these trips could lead to further loss of human life. Therefore, the use of drones for inspection of this structure is growing in North America, further boosting the market revenue.

Rise in Use of Drones in Agricultural Sector to Influence the Growth of the Market in Asia Pacific Region

The Asia Pacific inspection drones market is set to grow at a share of 24% over the forecast period. This growth could be a result of the rising use of drones in inspecting agriculture farms. Moreover, the government of different countries in this region is taking active initiative to promote the use of drones in farming. For instance, a total of USD 1 billion has been made available for the advertising of kisan drones in India, of which USD 0.63 billion has been allocated to the ICAR for the acquisition of 300 kisan drones and the planning to conduct their trials on the farms of 75000 hectares through the use of 100 KVKs, 75 ICAR institutions, and 25 SAUs. Additionally, funding has been provided to various State Governments for the deployment of more than 1500 Kisan Drone CHCs and the distribution of more than 240 Kisan Drones on an affordable basis to farmers.

Inspection Drones, Segmentation by Application

  • Construction & Infrastructure
  • Agriculture
  • Utilities
  • Oil & Gas
  • Mining

The oil & gas segment is anticipated to garner the highest share of 37% over the projected period. The major element to boost the segment growth is the growing demand for oil & gas. Global oil consumption is projected to reach about 98 million barrels per day in 2022. Compared to a rise of approximately 5% in 2021. Drones are utilized to monitor difficult-to-access places, such as cranes and derricks. Inspection of installation jackets and risers prevents risky rope access, and thermographic imaging inspection of splash areas may identify corrosion that would otherwise be difficult to find.

Inspection Drones, Segmentation by Type

  • Hybrid
  • Multirotor
  • Fixed Wing

The multirotor segment is set to have significant growth in the market for the coming years. The growth of the segment is estimated to be encouraged by growing construction activities. According to projections, there were a total of 794,431 built-up areas (BUAs) globally in 2016. This number is anticipated to climb to roughly 849,406 residents by 2022. Furthermore, an additional 2 million new buildings are anticipated to be built by 2050.
