The public safety drone market is projected to grow from USD 1.1 billion in 2023 to USD 2.0 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 13.0% from 2023 to 2028.

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an airplane that operates autonomously or is remotely piloted. UAVs are also termed drones. Public safety drones can operate autonomously or remotely operated. However, most of these drones are controlled remotely by human operators. Equipped with various payloads such as sensors, these drones are connected to ground control stations. Public safety drones find applications in tasks such as inspection, surveillance, aerial photography for film and journalism, search and rescue missions, cross-border surveillance, strategic planning, mapping inaccessible areas, and weather forecasting. The global demand for drones has witnessed significant growth in recent years, with individuals, commercial entities, military organizations, and government agencies utilizing them for diverse purposes. Rising demand for public safety drones, with their use in the effective mapping of dangerous terrains and quick data gathering, is expected to fuel the growth of the market for public safety drones in the coming years.

Based on the type, the Fixed wing segment is to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on type, the public safety drone market has been classified into fixed-wing, rotary-wing, and hybrid-wing. The fixed-wing segment is to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Fixed-wing public safety drones cover larger regions and can stay in the air for longer periods of time, making them especially useful in search and rescue missions, disaster assessment, and surveillance activities. Fixed-wing drones perform better in harsh weather situations than most multi-rotor drones. Their ability to fly at greater altitudes and steadiness in severe winds make them ideal for missions in tough terrain, coastal areas, or remote locales. Fixed-wing drones have a greater cargo capacity than multi-rotor drones.

Based on the mode of operation, the fully autonomous segment is to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on the mode of operation segment, the public safety drone market has been classified into semi-autonomous and fully autonomous. The fully autonomous segment is to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to fully autonomous drones offering enhanced automation, reduced operator workload, improved reliability, scalability, and the ability to operate continuously. They can execute pre-programmed flight paths and tasks without human intervention, making them suitable for large-scale and uninterrupted operations.
