Drone Light Shows Market Research, 2031

The global drone light shows market size was valued at $1.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Drone light shows are produced by groups of drones that are lit, coordinated, and choreographed to produce a variety of aerial formations. Almost any image in the sky can be replicated by computer software that converts images into flight commands and sends them to the drones while maintaining the coordination and synchronization between the image and the drones. In recent years, drone shows have progressed from the academic lab to large-scale deployments at major events around the world.  Drone light shows are most commonly used as a replacement for fireworks at the end of the event or in the middle of the entertainment event. Drones can be used to provide synchronized lighting with music in music festivals which helps provide additional entertainment value to the songs being performed and also help in bringing a sense of fulfillment to the show. The popularity of drones as fireworks replacements is rapidly increasing as consumers are moving towards environmental sustainability alternatives to fireworks and drones have a significantly less impact on the environment as compared to large fireworks shows which can burn several kilos of gunpowder in one show, leading to severe pollution and harm to the environment. Moreover, such factors are likely to boost the drone light shows market demand.

 

Social media is becoming an important tool for the proliferation of the drone light shows industry. Many drone light show organizers are primarily promoting their shows through social media campaigns and social media posts in order to increase their reach and garner more attendance at their events. Many social media users across the world are also posting pictures and videos of drone light show on their social media pages with the use of tools such as hashtags, which is further helping to increase the reach of the market to newer consumers who are developing interest in such shows. There is also an increasing trend among the consumers of purchasing their own drones and creating their own drone light shows and creating social media profiles surrounding their shows, which is further boosting the demand in drone light shows market forecast period.  

 

Drones are expensive pieces of technology, owing to a fine balance between hardware, software, and technology required for creating drones. The programs used for performing drone light shows are also expensive owing to the ability of the programs to synchronize an array of several drones as well as to transmit images to the drone array while maintaining a balance between the positioning of the drones and the image with the help of technologies such as geo-positioning, proximity tracking, and drone light control in order to create an image or 3D array with the drones. This causes the arrangement of a drone light show to be quite expensive, which can deter consumers from visiting such shows due to high entrance fees or from performing such shows on their own due to lack of funds for purchasing the drones and the software.   

 

Drones are easily becoming available in developing countries across the world. There are many new emerging manufacturers of drones in developing countries across the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific region in countries such as China and India, which are making drones easily accessible to consumers in the region. Furthermore, the adoption of these drones as well as drone light shows in the region is also increasing, due to the adoption of newer technologies in the events conducted in the region as well as the increasing consumer spending on such events in the region. This increasing adoption of drones and drone light shows in the region will help provide greater growth opportunities to the market in the future.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs of various top companies, the drone light show market is expected to witness decent growth in the future. The main reason for the growth of the market can be attributed to the technological advancements taking place across the world as well as the increase in the usage of drones as a medium of entertainment across the world. Drones are being used in events such as music festivals, marriages, carnivals, and corporate events to capture footage as well as to provide entertainment in the form of drone light shows.   

 

Drone light shows are becoming easier to arrange as several new software and compatibility programs are being developed specifically for performing the shows. These types of programs provide a centralized interface for drone coordination and synchronization while also providing options to add images and graphics in an easier fashion. These programs are also enabling the use of more complicated graphics and 3D arrangements of the drones to create more complex light shows. However, the costs associated with purchasing arrays of drones and software are high, which is restricting the growth of the market to an extent. The increasing income of consumers across the world as well as rising interest in drone technology will help the market.  

 

An increase in the adoption of drones in developing countries across the world is another factor that will lead to the growth of the market in the future. The replacement of fireworks with drone light shows as a means of protecting the environment as well as the use of drone light shows in coordination with the music playing at music events is becoming increasingly attractive to consumers, which will help boost the market in the future.
