Global Drone Sensor market is anticipated to reach over USD 1 Billion, growing at a CAGR of over 20% during the forecast period, due to rising demand for drones from various end user industries, increasing demand for mapping and surveying and elevating need for accurate positioning for precise navigation. Numerous sensors are put into use for enhancing the technological capabilities of the drones including Inertial Sensors, Image Sensors, Speed and Distance Sensors, Position Sensors, Pressure Sensors, Current Sensors, Ultrasonic Sensors, Light Sensors, Altimeter Sensors, Flow Sensors and Others.  One of the major factors restraining the growth of the global drone sensor market is hacking and tampering of the drones.

Based on the platform, the market has been bifurcated into VTOL, Fixed Wing and Hybrid. Owing to the features, such as high payload capacity and extended flight time, the hybrid platform is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Defense end user industry anticipated to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period

Based on the end user industry, the market has been segmented into Energy & Utilities, Precision Agriculture, Media & Entertainment, Defense, Personal, Law Enforcement, Security & Surveillance and Others. The others end user industry segment covers retail and education. Defense industry is expected to possess the highest growth during the forecast period due to the its application in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) by the military and reduced collateral damage while hovering, identifying and striking targets.

Geographically, the market has been segmented into Asia Pacific, North America, South America and Middle East & Africa and Europe. North America is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for drones to cover several sporting events.
