Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/16/2018 -- Market Insights
The last decade or so has seen a surge in popularity in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Initially popularized by hobbyists, UAVs are currently being used in military activities and conducting research. Drones have also been used successfully by businesses for delivery of products to the end user. In the last few years, a niche market for passenger drones has been established and is seeing exponential growth for the forecast period.

Market Research Future's report on the Passenger Drones Market sheds light on the trends and insights for various segments of this market. The report indicates that an increase in multirotor passenger drones in non-military applications for flight stability and cost benefit is a key factor in the growth of the passenger drone market.

The ubiquity of smartphones has given rise to demand for smartphone controlled passenger drones. Moreover, rapidly increasing demand for efficient transport, has encouraged key players globally, to experiment with relevant technologies. The future of mobility is expected to be revolutionary with flying cars soon becoming a strongly possible reality that changes the way we perceive terrestrial mobility

New and existing guidelines and regulations for aviation and aerospace in this competitive, budding market could prove to be a restricting factor on growth. The passenger drone market is presently in its infancy stage, however, the potential for this market is reflected in the projection of CAGR, which is an exponential 30% during the forecast period.
