The global drone data services market size reached US$ 1.7 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 10.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 34.7% during 2023-2028.

Drone data services include the use of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for collecting digital data via aerial surveys. They rely on drones embedded with downward-facing sensors, such as red, green, and blue (RGB) cameras and light detection and ranging (LiDAR) payloads, for gathering images of ground from different angles and creating geo-referenced orthomosaics and 3D models of the area. As they offer high-quality, accurate, and cost-effective data, drone data services are finding applications in agriculture, oil and gas, mining, media and entertainment (M&E), insurance, aviation, marine, healthcare, and transportation industries worldwide.

Drone Data Services Market Trends:
At present, there is a rise in the utilization of drone data services in the construction industry to perform cadastral and corridor surveying, volumetric calculations of land, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), and automated mapping. This, along with the growing demand for artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled optical sensors in security and law enforcement to enhance public safety and risk mitigation, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, the increasing usage of drone data services in agriculture for obtaining information on hydrography, topography, soil type, and land development is positively influencing the market. In addition, there are various technological advancements in the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud-based storage to upload, share, store, and process aerial images, which is bolstering the market growth. Furthermore, rapid urbanization is leading to high traffic congestion and air pollution across the globe. As a result, key market players are extensively investing in research and developments (R&D) activities to develop autonomous drones for intracity transportation, which is projected to propel the growth of the market.
