The drone inspection and monitoring market in Asia Pacific is projected to witness a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for drones for various applications in the region. As the geopolitical situation in this region is unstable, several Asia Pacific countries are focusing on increasing their industrial prowess. The prevailing trend of drone procurement for civilian applications by emerging economies, such as India, China, and Malaysia, is expected to drive the growth of the drone inspection and monitoring market in Asia Pacific in the coming years. In May 2020, the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) of India launched a new online portal, GARUD, to provide conditional exemptions to drone companies. Such initiatives are expected to lead to the growth of drone service providers.

Based on solution, the service segment registered the largest market share in the base year

Based on solution, the drone inspection and monitoring market has been segmented into platform, software, infrastructure, and services. Among these, the services segment is projected to lead the market during the forecast period. The service segment of the drone inspection and monitoring market includes drone platform services, which have been further sub-segmented into flights (piloting & operations), data analysis, and data processing (deliverables).

Based on Mode of Operation, optionally piloted segment projected to hold leading share during forecast period

Based on the mode of operation, the drone inspection and monitoring market has been subdivided into remotely piloted, optionally piloted, and fully autonomous. Remotely piloted drones are widely used in the construction industry and for remote sensing-based ecology and conservation research. Optionally piloted drones find application in the agricultural sector, and autonomous drones are currently used for military, mining, oil & gas, and various other applications. Optionally piloted drones are anticipated to be soon substituted by autonomous drones as they have greater payload capacity, enhanced propulsion power, long endurance, and can operate without any human involvement. Also, optionally piloted drones would have the highest market share during the forecast period, whereas fully autonomous drones would have the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
