Our infographic shows the drone market in 2021 in terms of market value. The graphic shows the current value as well as the projected CAGR for the next 5 years until 2026. Last year’s infographic projected a higher CAGR which had underestimated the length and impact of the pandemic.

After gaining US$ 6 billion from 2020 to 2021, the value of the market will be worth twice as much in 2026 as it was in 2020.

The “Drone Market in 2021-2026” infographic also shows market segmentation in terms of hardware, software and services. Not surprisingly, drone services continue to dominate the market and will continue to do so in the coming years. It is worth noting that this infographic excludes “passenger drones” from the hardware segment.
