Report Summary

The global passenger drones market size was valued at USD 181.76 million in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 29.5% during the forecast period. Passenger Drones are electronic aircrafts that move people from short to medium distances. These drones can be manually piloted, remotely piloted or fully autonomous.

Designed to accommodate two to five people, they are capable of Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VLOT) and do not require a runway.  They run on battery and hence have zero emissions and high energy efficiency. Being quieter than helicopters, these have been in use in military applications but now with technological advancements these can be extended to scientific, commercial, recreational, passenger and surveillance uses. Passenger drones will make intra and inter-city transport time efficient for commuters. In special missions, passenger drones can be used for search and rescue, emergency supply delivery, air ambulance and fire rescue.
