A drone is an unmanned aircraft operated remotely by a human operator or autonomously based on preprogrammed plans. For modern logistics, drones can bring change in the supply chain and deliver products in a matter of hours. In transport and logistics, drones are helpful as they reduce human workload, CO2 emissions, and can provide access in the difficult to reach areas. Drones are one of the fastest ways for postal delivery as it uses air medium and avoids surface congestion and are more convenient as it minimizes labor cost.

Drone Logistics And Transportation Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Rise in Demand for Faster Deliveries

The demand for faster deliveries across the globe is rising. With this higher demand, it is difficult to reach remote areas with traditional methods of logistics and urban areas are most of the time congested. Drones possess the ability to resolve this issue as it uses air route which is not congested and it can deliver the products at a faster pace, which is driving the growth of drone logistics and transportation market.

  • Rise in Adoption of Drones to Boost Transportation in Challenging Areas

Drones have become a lifesaving technology that helps in supplying various products such as medicines, food packages, parcel to remote areas without using the road. Instead of roadways, it uses air route as a medium which avoids traffic congestion, which is an advantage for transporting goods in the hard to access areas. The use of a drone for transporting lifesaving products in challenging and critical to access areas is anticipated to push the market growth. For instance, in 2018, DHL launched the world’s 1st drone delivery service to deliver life-saving medicine to a rural island in Tanzania.

Market Restraints:

  • Issue with Battery life

The drone is being adopted at a faster pace owing to its advantages. However, the short battery life of drones which can easily drain within a few minutes’ acts as a roadblock for the growth of this market. Due to this, there exist a high possibility that the drones can run their battery while delivering the product. This situation would give rise to customer complaints and hamper the market growth. To drag this further, Amazon, an online retailer committed to delivering the product through drones in less than 30 minutes owing to the short battery life of drones.
