Drone Motor Market DynamicDevelopment in electric, hybrid and renewable power drone motors to increase the scope of applications The manufacturers are investing more in research and development activities for developing new technology in drone motors. The drone performance depends on the right motor, the advancement in UAV technology and adoption through industries to boost the market growth. The versatility that UAVs or drones offer makes them extremely valuable to four industries: military, consumer goods, transportation, and agriculture. The increase of solar technologies in LiDar drones is a key influencing factor for the Drone Motor Market growth over the forecast period. 1. BLDC Motors in LiDar Drones: BLDC motors are ideal for LiDar drones that are expected to propel Drone Motor demand. Brushless DC motors in drones use permanent magnets and three Hall Effect magnetic sensors so that commutations are accomplished electronically. These BLDC motors produce a higher thrust to facilitate the best rotation speeds and controlled power for drones in a manner that’s highly efficient. In LiDar drones, brushless DC motors also control the laser’s positional drive. BLDC motor manufacturers create brushless motors to be more powerful for their weight than brushed motors. The drones have lifespans of up to 1,000 hours or more without a lot of maintenance. In some drone designs, the custom BLDC motors used are simple to replace if they become damaged in a crash. 2. Hybrid Drone Motor: The hybrid architecture of the system allows for bidirectional power flow between the electrical system and the engine. The from the battery system to the engine for self-starting, power boost during flight and in-air engine restart. For example, the Cortex HF50 Series Hybrid is a newly developed two-stroke hybrid heavy-fuel UAV drone motor system from Currawong Engineering. Government Approves PLI Scheme for Making Drones and Drone Components to Boost the Drone Motor Market The PLI scheme comes as a follow-through of the liberalized Drone Rules, 2021 released by the Central Government on 25 August 2021. The PLI scheme and new drone rules are intended to catalyze super-normal growth in the upcoming drone sector. Drones offer tremendous benefits to all sectors of the economy. These include– agriculture, mining, infrastructure, surveillance, emergency response, transportation, geo-spatial mapping, defense, and law enforcement. R & D activities in drone motor innovation, technology development, and its huge domestic demand, have the potential for becoming a global drone hub by 2029. Thanks to the new rules and the incentive scheme, the drones and drone components manufacturing industry have an investment of over INR 5,000 crore over the next three years. The annual sales turnover of the drone manufacturing industry may grow from INR 60 crore in 2020-21 fold to over INR 900 crore in FY 2023-24. The drone motor manufacturing industry is expected to generate over 10,000 direct jobs over the next three years. For Example, the Indian drone industry flies high with 3x growth in investments over 3-years With investments totaling about $50 million, the current fiscal is all set to emerge as the best year for the country’s drone ecosystem. In FY2022-23, drone start-ups attracted $49.7 million in investments across 20 rounds, compared to $25 million received in FY2021-22 across 23 rounds. The figure for FY2020-21 was $11.2 million across 20 rounds, according to data from the research firm Tracxn Technologies. Thus, investments in the segment have registered 300 percent growth in the last three fiscals. Drone Motor Market Key Restrain Factors 1. Widespread restrictions on the use of drones to impact the global sales The growing adoption of military and commercial drones across the world. The industry is facing substantial tasks for Drone Motor Market growth due to limitations on the use of drones and severe government regulations and the lack of air traffic management for drones. For instance, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) declared a new rule for the official registration of drones except for recreational drones which are weighing under 250 grams or 0.55 pounds. Without remote ID (remote identification), drones are not allowed to fly. The FAA has received more than 4,000 applications for night waivers till 2021 from 2017. Out of all applications, only 1,200 applications were granted, while the remaining 2300 were denied. 1. The lack of adequately trained drone operators is a key factor hindering Drone Motor Market growth. The lack of experienced drone pilots had enhanced the concerns related to the safety of costly drones and other indemnity damages. This factor is expected to hamper the demand for drones, which directly limits the sales of drone motors. Drone Motor Fundamentals Trends to Drive the Market 1. Drone Motor Design Trends: Drone motor design development and challenges that are most impacting engineers’ next moves. There are interesting, developing trends that indicate a huge opportunity to advance the industry growth such as Battery range, Frequency & core loss, Torque & efficiency, Motor setups & types and Expanding applications 2. Naked bottom OR Closed bottom motors: The latest trend in quad motors is naked bottom motors. They save a lot of weight (2g in general), it may not seem much but that’s a lot in terms of drone racing. It may be the difference between winning a race and losing one. The increasing adoption of brushless DC motors is expected to create a lucrative opportunity for the drone motor industry. 3. Weight of drone motor: The weight of a motor is governed by the size and materials of the motor and is influencing the market growth. The bigger-size motors are heavy in weight hence motor used on a 5” quad usually weighs with wires around 30-40 grams. For example, light motors such as the Emax RSII, weigh around 25 grams for a 2306 motor with a couple of grams for the wires. There are some very heavy motors such as the cobra 2204 motors, which weigh around 34 grams. The increasing demand for these drone motors from the security surveillance sector boosts the Drone Motor Market.
Drone Motor Market SegmentationThe global drone motor market is segmented based on motor type, drone type, power capacity, application, and region. By region, the market analysis is based on North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and Middle East Africa. Based on Motor Type, the Drone Motor Market is segmented into brushed, and brushless DC motors. The Brushless motor segment held the largest market share in 2022. The report also indicates that the brushless motor segment is expected to grow at a higher rate than the brushed motor segment due to its higher efficiency and lower maintenance requirements.
