Agricultural Drones Market Size & Growth (2022 - 2027):

Agricultural Drones Market was worth USD 1.8 billion in 2021 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 29.44% to reach USD 6.7 billion by 2026.

Agricultural drones use an automated process to make farming more productive and they are about to be on the brink of becoming the new workhorses on farms. Drones provide a better, more flexible visualization. With the focus on productivity in agriculture spiraling upward in the farming sector, drones could be the answer to improved automation and precise control of farm monitoring and operations.

Robots are beginning to transform the way the agriculture sector functions and the advent of agricultural drones could take that change to a whole new level. Globally, farmers are adapting to drone availability, using aerial cameras to visualize plants. Video, specialized video, targeted video, and agricultural spraying systems are offered. Agricultural Drones use Technology for Spraying, Mapping, Pest Control, Seeding, Remote Sensing, and Precision Agriculture.

Drivers and Restraints:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing adoption of drones for crop spraying applications resulting in an increase in the yield and reducing the wastage in spraying fertilizers & pesticides. Also, farmers are increasingly implementing this technology, in farming, to gain better productivity and to increase the efficiency in usage of water, land, and fertilizers. Moreover, technological advancements, including sensors, better materials, and imaging capabilities, are also expected to drive the agricultural sector. However, lack of awareness and a limited number of skilled professionals are restraining the growth of the market.
