According to the new market research report, now available on ASDReports, "Agriculture Drones Market by Type (Fixed Wing, Rotary Blade, Hybrid, Data Analytics Software, Imaging Software), Application (Field Mapping, VRA, Crop Scouting, Livestock, Crop Spraying), Component and Geography - Global Forecast to 2022", the market is expected to grow from USD 864.4 Million in 2016 to USD 4,209.2 Million in 2022, at a CAGR of 30.19% during the forecast period. Agriculture drones have the capability of collecting high-quality data and are easy to use compared to other smart agriculture techniques such as satellite imagery. In addition, drone data processing tools are becoming less expensive and easier to use. These advantages, along with the increasing awareness, propel the growth of the market.
Hybrid drones expected to lead the agriculture drones market during the forecast period
Hybrid drones are expected to capture the largest share of the market by 2022. Hybrid drones can hover, fly at fast speed, and remain steady; the advantages of these drones are boosting the growth of the market for hybrid drones. The agriculture drones market for software is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Imaging software plays a key role in the market since this software is used for processing the images captured by the cameras or the sensors mounted as a payload on the agriculture drones; thus, imaging sensors are expected to capture the largest share of the agriculture drones market for software by 2022.
The agriculture drones market for crop spraying application expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022
The market for crop spraying application is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022.
