DUBLIN--()--The "Drone Package Delivery Market by Solution (Platform, Infrastructure, Software, Service), Duration (<30 Minutes, >30 Minutes), Range (Short <25 Kilometers, Long >25 Kilometers), Package Size (<2KG, 2-5 KG, >5 KG), Region Global Forecast to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The drone package delivery market is projected to grow from USD 2.1 billion in 2023 to USD 27.4 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 44.7% during the forecast period.

An increase in demand for faster delivery, amendments in the regulatory framework to encourage drone package delivery, and increased use of low-cost and light payload drones for product delivery by start-ups are some of the major factors driving the market for drone package delivery. However, the lack of required infrastructure to support drone delivery operations in emerging economies is limiting the overall growth of the market.

Short duration (<30 minutes) segment is estimated to account for a larger market in 2023

Based on duration, the market has been segmented into short duration (<30 minutes) and long duration (>30 minutes). The short duration segment is estimated to account for a larger share of the overall market in 2023. However, the long duration segment is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period owing to the demand for instant package delivery at a lower cost.

Short range (<25 kilometers) segment is estimated to account for a market larger share in 2023

Based on range, the market has been segmented into short range (<25 kilometers) and long range (>25 kilometers). Short-range delivery drones are generally used for a short-range local delivery of packages. These drones, capable of traveling up to a distance of 25 kilometers in a single charging, enable instantaneous delivery of products after their online purchase. There is a rising demand for instant delivery of products and packages, such as medicines and food.

Asia Pacific is estimated to lead the drone package delivery market in 2023 China and Japan are the major countries in the Asia Pacific drone package delivery market and are leaders in the manufacturing of advanced delivery drones for commercial usage. Australia is among the most lucrative markets in the Asia Pacific Region. Alphabet's Wing has started the delivery of packages using drones in Australian suburbs in April 2019. Amazon Prime is also conducting trials in the country for the delivery of parcels through drones.
