The global cargo drones market size is expected to reach USD 14,592.47 million by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Cargo Drones Market by Industry (Retail, Healthcare, Agriculture, Defense and Maritime), Range (Close-Range, Short-Range, Mid-Range, Long-Range) - Global Forecast 2023 to 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.
The primary prerequisites for the use of cargo drones in the airspace of different countries are the approval of the relevant governments and the regulations they establish to ensure proper air traffic management, adequate data support, effective controller training, and social adaptability by the population in those countries. By developing new drone technologies or enhancing existing ones, governments from many different countries are trying to increase their defence capabilities.
The cost of building the drone infrastructure and political obstacles to obtaining the required approval for the development of drone ecosystems raise uncertainty about the growth of this market.
The future of drone use in logistics operations presents a significant chance for the middle-mile delivery sector. While some businesses focus on last-mile delivery from retailers to consumers, middle-mile logistics are frequently ignored. Due to the larger payloads of cargo drones, businesses are now focusing on middle-mile logistics, or those that take place between one company and another, such as from a port to a distribution centre or from a distribution centre to a store.
Middle-mile drone transportation goals using semi-trucks and intermodal freight networks. Drones used for middle-mile operations have greater payload capacities and longer ranges than those used for last-mile delivery. For instance, Elroy Air's Chaparral has a 300-mile range and can transport up to 500 lb of goods.
In March 2022, FedEx (US) partnered with Elroy Air (US), an eVTOL freight drone provider, in California to investigate autonomous transport alternatives for its middle-mile delivery operations. According to the conditions of this agreement, FedEx Express, a FedEx subsidiary, will start testing Elroy Air's Chaparral cargo drones in 2023.

The growth of COVID-19 has been advantageous for the drone industry. The most important part of controlling this outbreak is to promote social distance, and drones were helpful in many duties that limited physical contact between people, like checking the temperature at available facilities and delivering medical supplies, among other things. One of the key characteristics that has aided the market's expansion is the adaptability with which drones carry out their operational procedures.
The weather conditions most likely to prevent drone use are precipitation, which can damage electronics, strong winds, which can drain batteries more quickly or even cause drones to lose control, and low temperatures, which greatly reduce battery performance.
