The global medical drone market size is expected to gain momentum by reaching USD 1,410.9 million by 2028 from USD 254.7 million in 2021, while exhibiting a CAGR of 27.70% between 2021 to 2028. In its report titled “Medical Drone Market, 2021-2028,” Fortune Business Insights™ mentions that it stood at USD 194.7 million in 2020.
In this pandemic situation, demand for drone technology has increased and is expected to remain persistent during the forecast period. However, in the pre-pandemic scenario, the technology was not much prevalent in all the sectors. A report by Geospatial World, and Co-founder of Auterion, suggests that industries and their experts had been dismissive and hesitant about the utility of drone technology in their respective industries. But now, they have found it as an immediate and effective solution for ensuring workforce safety. Thus this has led to the adoption of drone technology. The standardization of drone technology for varying utilities, the growing Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) drone flight, and accommodative new regulations worldwide are the factors that are anticipated to propel the growth of the market.
COVID-19 Impact
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for drones increased. For instance, a report by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) mentions that drones are used in aerial disinfectant spraying worldwide to curb the spread of viruses in outdoor places. Many countries such as the U.S., the UAE, China, South Korea, Spain, and others are known to attempt aerial spraying in public places quite frequently. The manufacturers of these drones have claimed that they have the capability to disinfect 3 square kilometer areas. Apart from its use in spraying, these are used in monitoring and surveillance of public places.

Driving Factor
Higher Demand for BVLOS to Fuel Market Growth
The growing demand for BVLOS during the pandemic has accelerated the medical drone market growth as these are more cost-effective and efficient and have fewer takeoff and landing phases. Moreover, they are fully automated and can easily access remote or hazardous areas. Therefore, many countries jumped into experimentation and started testing the efficiency of drones. As a result, in 2021, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) registered around 900,000 drones which may be deployed for varying applications. Furthermore, in May 2021, the Australian Government invested USD 28 million to kick start the Emerging Aviation Technology Partnerships Program under the National Emerging Aviation Technologies (NEAT) Policy Statement. This policy regulates the medical drones sector.
Regional Insights
North America to Dominate Backed by Presence of Prominent Key Players
North America is expected to remain at the forefront and hold the highest position in the market for medical drones during the forecast period owing to higher demand for drones in medical applications. Furthermore, the presence of key drone manufacturers in the U.S. such as Zipline, UPS Flight Forward, Amazon Prime Air, Flirtey, and others are also fueling the regional market. The region's market stood at USD 79.88 million in 2020.
Europe is expected to exhibit a significant medical drone market share in upcoming years owing to the accommodative regulations and high investment rate in drone technology by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the region.
Competitive Landscape
Key Players to Focus on Partnerships to Strengthen the Market Growth
The market is consolidated by major companies striving to maintain their position by focusing on new launches and partnerships. For instance, in May 2021, Avy BV, a Dutch UAV manufacturer, partnered with Robotic Skies Inc. It is a global drone maintenance service provider in terms of an in-field fleet support program for Avy's emerging fleet of autonomous long-range life-saving UAVs to maintain the large operational fleet for extreme medical and humanitarian flight operations worldwide.
