The drone market has experienced dynamic technological advancements over the last few decades. These advancements have led to the improvement in the autonomy of drones, operating ranges, capabilities, and payload sizes and have also paved the way for various growth opportunities. The increasing adoption of drones for aerial surveillance, patrolling, disinfection, fertilizer spraying, and delivery, among other applications, has increased the need for accuracy in control and navigation systems as well as in tracking systems as compared to the results from radiofrequency operations and satellite communication operations of drones. However, communication and navigation remain among the major areas restraining the growth of the drone market.
Cellular networks could be a key enabler to rolling out beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations at scale while keeping operating costs low, as cellular-connected drones can operate with the existing network infrastructure. The capabilities of cellular networks are expected to enhance drone safety for consumers, along with increasing commercial and government applications. The introduction of cellular network connectivity in the cellular-connected drone market has rapidly transformed the communication process between the operator and the drone. However, participation from other stakeholders is also needed to establish cost-effective and viable drone communication.
