Deployment of Weather Monitoring Drones to Provide Growth Opportunities for Tethered Drone Market During 2022–2028

According to our latest market study on "Tethered Drone Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis – by Component, Application, and Forecast Type," the market is expected to grow from US$ 78.66 million in 2022 to US$ 730.17 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 45.0% from 2022 to 2028.

Tethered drone system provides power and communications to a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) via a permanent physical link in the form of a flexible wire or cable. As fixed-wing drones cannot hover, UAV tethered systems rely on quadcopters or other multirotor drones and aerostats. They are utilized in a small working area and when the required flight duration is larger than that of a free-flying drone. Drone tethers typically provide up to a few hundred meters of operational height, with the ability of the drone to handle the weight of the tether being the limiting factor. Drone tethers can be made of aramid or other lightweight synthetic materials for strength, copper or plated copper for power transmission, and optical fiber for data and communications. The system might be built on the ground or on a vehicle.

The growing focus of armed forces on communications, security, and ISR operations, where drones can be rapidly deployed to establish robust channels and cover broad areas, is one of the key factors propelling the uptake of tethered drone systems across the world. Battery-operated UAV systems deployed across the military forces provide a limited-time service for respective operations, one of the major challenges the military forces face. Tethered drones provide an almost unlimited power supply, allow the drone to operate for a longer time, and support military operations for the desired period.

Several military forces are collaborating with different tethered drone vendors to develop and deploy advanced tethered drones for their critical mission needs. For instance, in May 2022, Elistair announced that it was awarded a framework agreement by the French Armament General Directorate (DGA) for supplying ORION 2 tethered Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In 2019, Hoverfly Technologies announced that it won a contract worth US$ 10 million to deliver its LiveSky Dismounted and LiveSky SkyBox variants of tethered drone systems to the US government. Such developments are catalyzing the tethered drone market growth globally.

In 2022, North America is expected to dominate the market in terms of tethered drone market share. The US is expected to dominate the market in North America region in 2022in terms of tethered drone market share. Due to their wide application in the military and commercial sectors, various companies are developing tethered drones in such a way that they can be used in any critical situation. Many tethered drone manufacturers across the region are collaborating with different vendors for the development of new and innovative products. The manufacturers are developing tethered drones for various applications, including surveillance, monitoring, law enforcement, and traffic management.

The tethered drone market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a large scale during the forecast period. China is expected to dominate the market in 2022, in terms of market share, according to the market analysis. The tethered drone market growth in the region is attributed to the presence of large number of tethered drone manufacturers across countries, such as China, and huge demand for the deployment of tethered drones deployment in India for specific military applications. Moreover, the market players in China are majorly focusing on the development of new products. For instance, in January 2021, NBND, a Chinese drone motor technology company, announced that they have developed tethered drone motors with high-speed and high-voltage noninductive FOC technology. The motor is of the size of a coin with a weight of about 50g but has an output power of 1000w and a speed of up to 30,000 revolutions per minute. It has innovative sensor-less HS FOC technology, which provides higher control frequency and accuracy. Therefore, the motor runs smoothly and has a high-speed dynamic response. Such initiatives are catalyzing the tethered drone market growth in Asia Pacific.

The tethered drone market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, and application. Based on type, the market is bifurcated into quadcopter and multicopter. By end user, the market is segmented into military and commercial. Based on commercial end user the tethered drone market is further segmented into energy & power, media & entertainment, telecom, and others. Based on application, the market is segmented into inspection/surveying/mapping, law enforcement, search & rescue, and others.
