Delivery Drones Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

A delivery drone is a type of unmanned aerial vehicle that is used to deliver packages to customers at any location. This drone comes in three different types, including fixed-wing drones, rotor drones, and hybrid drones. These types of drones are mainly designed with 4-8 propellers as well as rechargeable batteries and can fly at high speed while carrying a pack.

The delivery drone market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period due to the increasing Application of drones in the commercial sector. With innovation in cargo transportation, there has been increased use of delivery drones in e-commerce, quick-service restaurants, convenience stores, and healthcare industries, among others. As a result, it is estimated that by the end of the forecast period, the use of delivery drones will increase significantly.

Recent Developments:

  • DHL-Sinotrans and EHang jointly launch the first fully automated and intelligent urban drone delivery solution in China.
  • Receiving an Amazon package from heaven is about to become a reality. The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday that it had authorized Amazon to deliver packages using drones.

Drivers and Restraints of Delivery Drones Market:


The growing demand for delivery drones around the world is driving the growth of the global delivery drone market. For example, in April 2019, Zipline, a United States-based UAV manufacturer and logistics service provider, collaborated with the Ghana Ministry of Health to launch a delivery drone service for medical providers in Ghana. In 2017, Zipline received a contract from the Tanzanian government to start up permanent medical facilities in the country. According to statistics from the Global Opportunity Explorer, maternal mortality rates fell from 1,300 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1990 to 290 in 2015 due to the timely delivery of necessary blood to patients using drone delivery in Rwanda. These factors are expected to drive the delivery drones market growth.


However, strict Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and logistical challenges limit the use of delivery drones. Poor infrastructure and complex terrain are also expected to be one of the main logistical problems for delivery drones. Therefore, a great deal of experience and the proper knowledge is required to maneuver with delivery drones. In addition, the limited range of delivery drones (less than ten km) is a major drag on the growth of the delivery drones market.

Delivery Drones Market Segmentation:

By Type:

  • Fixed-wing
  • Rotary wing

Based on the Type, the delivery drones market is segmented into fixed-wing and rotary-wing. The rotary-wing segment is expected to own the majority of the delivery drone market during the forecast period. Rotary wing drones, especially quadcopters, have gained popularity in recent times. Its vertical take-off and landing capabilities, along with its hovering capabilities, have enhanced its suitability for various delivery applications. Rotary-wing drones have been envisioned by many companies as a potential platform for logistics, and they are investing in them. As developments in applications for rotor wing drones are more numerous, their increased use is expected to help the segment record the largest market share during the forecast period.

By Capacity:

  • Less than10 kg
  • More than 10 kg

The <10 kg segment accounted for the largest delivery drones market share in 2018 and is expected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2019 to 2025. Strict regulations implemented by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regarding cargo capacity limits of drones delivering less than 10kg, the segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR over the forecast period.

By Application:

  • E-commerce
  • Quick service restaurant
  • Convenience stores
  • Healthcare
  • Others 

The eCommerce segment dominated the market in 2018 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of drones or product delivery in the e-commerce industry is driving the growth of the segment. For example, in June 2019, Amazon released the latest version of the Prime Air Delivery Drone.

By End User:

  • Food and beverage
  • Healthcare
  • Retail and logistics
  • Others

Food and beverages accounted for the largest market share in 2018. However, the healthcare segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of delivery drones for the provision of emergency medical equipment and services is expected to drive growth in the segment. For example, at Mach 2019, UPS launched a new service to transport blood and other medical samples.

By Component:

  • Airframe
  • Controller system
  • Propulsion system
  • Camera
  • Navigation
  • Battery 
  • Others

The cell had the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increased R&D activities are undertaken by companies to develop smaller, high-durability and other improved drone cell structures that are driving the growth of the segment.
