UAV Battery Market 2018-2023: Global Size, Share, Trends, Leading Players and Regional Analysis By UAV and Battery Type

UAV Battery Market Estimated to Witness CAGR of 16%. Report Information by UAV Type (Medium-Altitude Long Endurance (MALE), High-Altitude Long Endurance (HALE), Tactical, Small), Battery Type (Fuel Cell, Lithium-ion, Nickle Cadmium, Lithium Polymer) & Region – Global Forecast till 2023

UAV Battery Market Scenario

A battery is an integral part of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) that consists of stored energy used to provide power during flight. The evolution of battery bus architecture in UAVs has simultaneously evolved their propulsion system. Different parameters are present to measure the performance of the drone battery such as specific energy, charge rate, cycle life, and cost per kilowatt-hour. Significant investment has been made on the development of battery with higher specific energy, which should lead to rapid growth during the forecast period. However, major restraints of the market are high discharge rate, high cost, and low payload capacity of UAVs. The size of battery has made a significant impact on the vehicle weight and flight range by helping achieve high operating efficiency.

Moreover, government agencies, such as Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Air Transport Agency (FATA), are working on policies to improve the efficacy of battery performance. In addition to that, Tesla is working on battery technology to improve flight longevity and efficiency. Earlier, the drone flight duration did not last for even 30 minutes, whereas continuous development in drone architecture has improved the flight duration to one hour. With the development of disruptive technology, the practical application of unmanned aerial vehicles gets diversified.

Global UAV Battery Market, By Segmentation and Geogrpahic Overview

The global UAV battery market is segmented into UAV type, battery type, and regions. Among the UAV type, the Medium-Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAV is most widely used and has the largest market share due to long duration flights at an altitude of 10,000-30,000 feet. In terms of segmentation based on battery type, the fuel cell is estimated to have the largest demand in the UAV battery market during the forecast period, due to increase in R&D spending in fuel cells. The main advantages offered by fuel cell powered UAVs include low maintenance, no lubricants, and higher flight duration, which can last to 8 hours. Cella Energy signed a contract with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to develop and evaluate a fuel cell power system for IAI’s BirdEye Mini UAV.

On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. The North America region is expected to dominate the market in future, due to increased investment in drones. Asia Pacific region is presently second to North America in the global UAV battery market, and is estimated to trail North America during the forecast period due to extensive use of civilian UAVs and increased defense spending in regions such as Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Indonesia.

Thus, the global UAV battery market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 16% from 2018 to 2023.
