Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Drone Logistics and Transportation Market By Solution (Shipping, Warehousing, Software, and Infrastructure), By Drone (Passenger, Freight, and Ambulance), and By Sector (Commercial and Military): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2018–2025”. According to the report, the global drone logistics and transportation market was USD 4.56 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach around USD 18.05 billion by 2025, at a CAGR approximately 21.9% between 2019 and 2025.


Unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones, are small aircrafts that don’t have a human pilot onboard that can either operated remotely or automated and travel with the help of GPS coordinates. They are made of light material to reduce weight, which enables them to fly at high altitudes. Drones are controlled by a ground cockpit and can easily return to their marked starting position in case of low battery or when the drone loses contact with the controller. Initially, these were used for photography and videography; however, these are used for applications in the supply chain of the modern world. Drones are considered to revolutionize the supply chain.

In this constantly evolving world, entrepreneurs and visionary leaders are focusing on integrating drone delivery in the supply chain. This is the primary growth factor of the drone logistics and transportation market, as including drones in the supply chain is believed to revolutionize the way shipments reach the customers. It will be the fastest way to transport and has the potential to deliver orders within minutes. Drones will have a diverse range of impact on the supply chain. Drones can track inventory and act as a significant system for inventory management, which will reduce the inventory carrying the cost of companies. Around 90% of the inventory of a warehouse is stationary and companies end up with extra inventory due to improper management. However, it is often difficult even for planes to fly in extreme weather conditions like snow, rain, and strong winds. Drones are smaller versions of these flying machines and could pose a major challenge for delivery during extreme climatic conditions, which might imply that drones can deliver only in certain climatic conditions. This is a major restraint for the drone logistics and transportation market.

By solution, the shipping sector is expected to hold the highest market share. Drone shipping has been targeted by various companies like Amazon, Google, UPS, DHL, etc. By drone, the ambulance drone segment will hold a major market share, owing to the increasing casualties and growing traffic congestion in major cities across the globe. The first few moments are the most crucial during an accident to prevent any further escalations. Lifesaving technologies like CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), medication, and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) can be made compact enough to be performed by a drone. Moreover, drones can also transfer other crucial medical supplies during disasters and across tough terrains.
