What are the Drivers of the Firefighting Drone Industry?

Increasing incidences of fire accidents in the oil and gas industry drive the need for firefighters' drones. In this industry, drones play an important role in performing several operations, such as inspection of offshore platforms, refining equipment, leak detection in pipelines, emergency response, and material handling. Therefore, several oil and gas agencies are deploying firefighting drones for safety.  For instance, Schlumberger and Baker Hughes offer drone-based mitigation services and emission detection. In addition, Total Energies and Shell have deployed drones, followed by other industries. These companies have also started offering drone-based services in their product portfolio to cater to the increasing demand for drones, which is anticipated to augment the firefighting drone market growth over the forecast period.

What are the Restrains of the Firefighting Drone Industry?

Stringent regulation by the government and limited operational bandwidth are major factors restraining the firefighting market growth. Multirotor drones cannot fly in all types of weather. The climate conditions like strong winds, precipitation, and cold temperatures may affect the performance of drones. For example, precipitation can damage the electronics of the multirotor drone. However, few market players are focusing on developing and introducing new drones that can operate in extreme conditions and it is expected to surge market growth in the near future.

What are the Opportunities in the Firefighting Drone Industry?

The emergence of new technologies such as Artificial intelligence (AI), Head-up Display (HUD), and Augmented Reality (AR) is gaining traction in the firefighting drone market. In the past few years, Australia, Europe, and UK have experienced wildfires due to dry climate conditions. The UK faces the most frequent and intense wildfires where new technologies like AI, drones, and sensors play a vital role in reducing damage. UK company FireAngel developed AI to predict incidents for at-risk people, like dementia sufferers, and US government agency NIST developed AI to predict flashovers. Therefore, new technology development by market players, followed by government support, is expected to further drive the market growth over the forecasted period from 2023 to 2030.

How did COVID-19 Impact Firefighting Drone Market?

COVID-19 spread worldwide in early 2020, and governments have imposed lockdowns to prevent infections. As a result, the production of firefighting drones stopped, and the supply chain of the raw material was disturbed. This has led to a decline in the firefighting drone market growth in the early phase of the pandemic.

However, market players got opportunities to develop their products with advanced technology, which is expected to augment firefighting drones' demand post-pandemic. For instance, in April 2022, local firefighters used drones to deliver food and other necessities in China.
