Based on the system type, the drone simulator market has been segmented into fixed and portable. Drones are becoming technologically advanced and equipped with different types of payloads, such as cameras, sensors, and weapons. Thus, drone pilots not only have to fly drones but also have to operate these payloads. Drone simulators are designed to simulate the environment and features to impart proper training to pilots. The fixed system segment of the drone simulator market is expected to grow during the forecast period as militaries across the globe are resorting to fixed systems, owing to their affordability.
The drone simulator market, based on the device type, has been segmented into augmented and virtual reality. The augmented reality technology uses computer-generated sensory inputs for superimposing virtual objects in the real world. These inputs are a part of the hardware components used in augmented reality. Virtual reality devices, such as Head-Mounted Displays (HMDs), gesture-tracking devices, projectors, and display walls, require various hardware and software components. Hardware components include electronic and semiconductor components, sensors, and displays, whereas software components, include various software solutions, Software Development Kits (SDKs), and cloud services. The increasing use of augmented reality drone simulators in military applications is expected to drive the growth of the augmented reality drone simulator market.
The regions considered for the drone simulator market are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and the Rest of the World. Asiapacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period. The growth of the Asia Pacific market can be attributed to technological innovation and the aim to manufacture commercial drones at a low cost. The drone is predominantly used in infrastructure and agriculture sectors, followed by the media & entertainment system. China is a major player in this region and a leader in manufacturing advanced drones for commercial usage. With the growth in the volume of drones for commercial applications, the requirement for drone operators is increasing, which would help in the growth of the drone market in the region.
