Based on type, multi rotor drones are expected to grow at a faster pace as compared to their fixed wing counterparts. Multi rotor drones have various benefits such as the ease of control and use, among others, they have short flight times and lesser payload capacity when compared to the fixed-wing drones. However, its ability to hover makes it apt for operating in confined areas. Moreover, camera control is also comparatively easier. In addition, several new startups and established companies are keen on developing multi-rotor drones.

On the basis of platform, the millitary segment accounted for a highr share than commercial segment in 2017. Countries such as the U.S., the U.K, Germany, China, and France are engaging in high R&D investments on VTOL UAVs, primarily for the provision of security services and surveillance. Market players are focusing on making these unmanned systems smaller and lighter, so that they are more feasible, approachable, and effective.

Based on region, North America accounted for the largest share in the global market in year 2017 as the U. S. Navy is engaged in the development of VTOL UAVs, which can be integrated with the naval fleet for sea-based surveillance. In addition, the region is engaged in the development of multipurpose VTOL UAVs for various land-based military operations, to provide strong support to the armed forces. It leads the global market in terms of expenditure and technological advancements and has deployed several drones. The U.S. generates a very high demand for drones used for surveillance purposes.
