In APAC, the adoption of agriculture drones is driven by factors such as the rising food demand, the need to improve yields despite limited resources, and the growing necessity to protect crops from unpredictable weather conditions.
According to a research report “Agriculture Drone Market by Offering (Hardware, Software and Services), Components, Payload Capacity, Medium-weight drones, Heavy-weight drones, Farming Environment, Application, Farm Produce, Range, Farm Size and Region – Global Forecast to 2028” published by MarketsandMarkets, the agriculture drone market is estimated at USD 4.5 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 17.9 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 31.5% from 2023 to 2028. The agriculture drone market is rapidly expanding, shaping modern-day agriculture practices. With the ability to gather real-time data and provide actionable insights, drones revolutionize crop management. They capture high-resolution images and collect data on crop health, soil conditions, and other crucial parameters, empowering farmers to make informed decisions. Precision spraying and targeted interventions minimize resource wastage, reduce environmental impact, and optimize yields. The integration of drones with smart farming systems further enhances their utility. The market’s growth is driven by increasing demand for efficiency, sustainability, and profitability in agriculture.

The component segment, by Controller Systems, is expected to account for the largest share in 2023.
Controller systems are expected to lead the agriculture drone market due to their crucial role in drone operation and control. They serve as the interface between the operator and the drone, enabling remote control, navigation, and data collection. Controller systems are evolving to support autonomous capabilities, reducing the need for manual control, and enhancing operational efficiency. They integrate and control various payloads and sensors, ensuring seamless communication and synchronization. User-friendly interfaces simplify drone operation, while safety features enable compliance with regulations. As the demand for precision agriculture grows, controller systems with advanced functionality, improved autonomy, and seamless payload integration are driving the agriculture drone market forward.
The application segment, by Livestock Monitoring, is expected to dominate the market with the largest share in 2023.
Livestock monitoring is expected to lead the agriculture drone market due to its efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and ability to provide real-time data. Drones enable farmers to efficiently track animal movement, behavior, and health over large areas, reducing labor and costs. They can access remote locations and gather valuable data for analysis, optimizing grazing management and improving animal welfare. Livestock monitoring with drones enhances animal safety, aiding in the detection of distress or potential threats. These benefits, combined with the growing adoption of precision agriculture, contribute to the increasing prominence of livestock monitoring in the agriculture drone market.
