The Public Safety Drone Market was one of the industries that actually grew during the pandemic. Drones have been used during the pandemic for aerial spraying of disinfectant in public areas and contaminated places while a number of different public safety and law enforcement agencies or organizations across the world have deployed drones to surveil the public spaces by gaining a better situational awareness and enforce quarantine by sending messages over a loudspeaker. Experts view of the public safety drone market project that the market will continue to grow through 2027. A report from Allied Market Research said that: “Public safety drones are the combat version of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which are used by public safety officials. Public safety drones are utilized to gather data about fire, to find a missing person and to public safety. Moreover, these drones are used for number of missions such as surveillance, intelligence gathering, early warning, artillery & gunship guidance, and threat detection. One common public safety application that drones are ideally suited for is search and rescue respectively. In addition, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are typically very time consuming difficult for ground teams to efficiently cover large areas in their search for injured or distressed individuals, but drones are able to quickly cover those areas and can utilize thermal signatures by means of forward-looking infrared (FLIR) cameras to locate the missing or distressed individual and assess their status. Hence, the drone can be used to send information on location and environmental conditions back to the ground crew to make sure the right kind of help arrives as quickly as possible. Hence, low operational cost when compared with the manned surveillance aircraft and high endurance limit of these drones are expected to further grow the market in the forecast period.” Active companies in the markets this week include: Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO), AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC), Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT), Boeing [NYSE: BA].
Allied Market Research continued: “Some of the factors that boost the growth of the global market include increase in use of drones by police official for search and rescue and rise in awareness for the disaster response drones… plus defense companies are integrating artificial intelligence (AI) & deep learning to automate inspection processes by the use of small drone software’s even more precise to provide more value, which is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market in the forecast period.
