The global multirotor drone market was valued at $1.86 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $6.30 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 13.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Multirotor drone is a type of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that has more than one motor that powers the propellers to take flight and maneuver the aircraft. Multirotor drones work on the principle of the traditional helicopter and are the most common type of drones for creating maps and models. These drones are of several types such as tricopters (3 rotors), quadcopters (4 rotors), hexacopters (6 rotors), and octocopters (8 rotors). In addition, these drones can navigate small spaces with ease, and a GPS receiver equipped in drones enables them to hover and maintain a defined path using waypoints. Moreover, these drones are a suitable option for long-time aerial operations and hold enhanced capacity to carry lightweight payload such as camera.

Surge in non-military applications

In recent years, there has been an increase in the demand for multirotor drones for commercial and business applications. The ability of the multirotor drone to carry heavier and higher capacity of payload make it suitable for different end-uses. Therefore, multirotor drones are used in aerial photography, surveillance and delivery applications, as well as in asset protection, disaster response, and search & rescue operations.

In addition, in agriculture sector, multirotor drones are utilized for proper monitoring of irrigation systems and performance analysis. In construction sector, multirotor drones are utilized for structure and job site inspection, employee monitoring, security, surveying, and 2D & 3D data creation. Similarly, in several others sectors multirotor drones are used to perform different tasks. Thus, such extensive use of multirotor drones in non-military applications is expected to drive the growth of the multirotor drone industry during the forecast period.

Multirotor Drone Market by End-Use

Demand for drone operability in extreme conditions

Multirotor drone can perform a variety of tasks in distant or hazardous location. However, multirotor drones are not able to fly in all types of weather. The weather conditions such as precipitation, strong winds, and cold temperatures can affect the performance of multirotor drones. For instance, precipitation can damage the electronics of the multirotor drone. There has been an increase in demand for drones which can operate in extreme conditions owing to such factors. Moreover, few drone manufacturers have already started to develop & introduce new drones which can operate in extreme conditions.

For instance, in 2020, AeroVironment launched a multirotor vertical take-off landing hybrid drone named as Quintex Recon. The drone take advantage of range & speed of multirotor drone with efficiency of a fixed-wing UAV. Quintex Recon has the capacity to withstand wind speeds of 32 kmph and can operate in temperatures ranging between -17 degree Celsius and 49 degree Celsius, with a maximum range of 20 km for 45 minutes over a single battery flight.
