Hobbyists and enthusiasts are helping the drones market to expand.

Many individuals are acquiring drones as a recreational hobby. Number of these drones are increasing day by day, as the number of smart features are introduced, making drones more versatile and the basic models are getting cheaper, making them affordable for everybody wanting one. Manufacturers are focused on consumer drone automation through the application of artificial intelligence, which allows for the programming of flying instructions into the drone itself. Furthermore, the integration of deep-learning algorithms and other machine learning approaches is one of the most important factors driving the growth of the consumer drones’ industry.

Drones have wide range of uses in different sectors, mainly in agriculture, construction and logistics. These drones are designed with some unique features that they will help in particular situations. In agriculture, these drones are used for spraying fertilisers and pesticides within minutes, in construction sector, drones are used to carry heavy loads on high levels and supervise construction sites. Drones are used by some logistics companies to carry out deliveries. The smart AI is installed in these drones, which pin point the address and deliver goods.

Such versatility of these drones is projected to have positive impact on consumer drones market.

Government regulations on the drones along with battery life problems of consumer drones are restraining the market.

The consumer drone market has certain challenges. The battery life of drones is the most pressing concern for manufacturers and buyers. Because these drones are modest in size, they cannot carry much weight and their utility is limited. If the motors are lowered in size, they will compensate for battery life but lose speed. If batteries are enhanced, the overall cost of the end product will decrease. Drones are prohibited in several countries. The regulatory authorities impose various conditions that must be met in order to possess and fly drones. Many regulatory agencies have conflicting feelings about drones since they are often used as toys, yet many individuals use them professionally for video filming and filmmaking. There have been multiple drone mishaps, making them deadly if not used properly.
