Factors such as use of advanced drone packs to extinguish wildfire and increase in fire-related incidents in the oil & gas industry supplements the growth of the firefighting drone market by increasing demand for efficient firefighting drones. Moreover, delayed delivery of aircraft and high capital requirement creates barrier for growth for firefighting aircrafts, enabling drones to quickly supplement firefighting aircrafts as these drones have low acquisition cost, low maintenance cost and are easy to operate. However, entering into contract & agreements for long-term business opportunities and incorporation of new technologies to put out fire is expected to create ample opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The firefighting drone market is segmented on the basis of type, size, propulsion, application and region. By type, the market is divided into fixed wing and multi-rotor. By size, the market is fragmented by micro drones and macro drones. By propulsion, the market can be categorized by electric motor, piston engine, and solar powered. By application, the market is categorized into scene monitoring, search and rescue, post fire or disaster assessment, and firefighting. Region-wise, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Macro Drones is projected as the most lucrative segment.

Increase in usage of drones to extinguish wildfire

Numerous companies have come up with aerial vehicles to fight with forest fires or building or industrial fires unlike all methods used to extinguish fire such as usage of fire trucks or human involved fire extinguishers. These drones carry chemical or fire retardants that at the press of a button are dropped at locations to extinguish wildfire. Moreover, these firefighting drones are designed in such a way that they can carry a huge amount of fire extinguishing components that can be spread over a huge area to stop fire from moving further. This increased maximum takeoff weight of drones creates wider scope for growth of the firefighting drone market across the globe.

Rising fire-related instances in the oil & gas industry

Significant increase in fire related accidents, especially in the oil & gas industry increases demand for efficient safety measures along with the need for available firefighting drones to be present at nearby locations, which drives the firefighting drone market growth. Furthermore, stringent rules & regulations by governments along with technological advancements in firefighting technology also acts as driving factor for the market growth. In addition, numerous companies as well as industry owners deploy active firefighting systems such as drones, which proves to be efficient in firefighting scenarios and at the same time are easy to operate. Such developments & technological advancements create a positive impact on the growth of the market across the globe.

Electric Motr is projected as the most lucrative segment.

Limited operational range and MTOW capacity

Majority of firefighting drones are small to medium in size and are battery operated. Navigation through extreme environment and conduction operations in such environment needs notable power source. Limited battery backup, followed by limited maximum takeoff weigh capacity as compared to firefighting aircrafts is serving as the biggest challenge in the firefighting drone market.

Scene Monitoring is projected as the most lucrative segment.

Delayed deliveries of aircraft

Manufacturing companies such as Boeing and Airbus receive bulk orders for different types of aircraft, which need to be completed within a shorter time span, owing to increase in demand for advanced aircraft. However, owing to dearth of skilled labor, deliveries take longer time. This delay causes a negative impact on operations of these companies, which eventually affects other related business. For instance, in December 2019, GoAir cancelled more than 40 flights in a week stating delayed delivery of new aircraft by Airbus. Similar delayed delivery of aircraft is expected to hamper the industry financially, owing to late payments, which, in turn, is expected to hamper the global firefighting aircraft market in the long run.
