Middle East and Africa Drones Market Analysis

The Middle-East and Africa Drones Market size is estimated at USD 3.61 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 5.34 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 8.14% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The demand for drones has continued to increase even during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are more than 70 thousand active major construction projects in the Middle-East countries, such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, and Egypt. The demand for drones in the construction sector for applications, such as 2D and 3D modeling and mapping, land surveying, progress monitoring, waste reduction, and job site surveillance, is increasing and is, thus, propelling the market growth in the Middle Eastern region.

In Africa, the demand and implementation of drones are increasing in various regions for applications, such as postal delivery and agriculture. The agriculture sector in Africa is witnessing the highest demand for drones for soil scanning (nitrogen content monitoring, electrical conductivity monitoring), crop monitoring, pesticide spraying, pest, weed, and disease detection, fish population monitoring, etc.

Technological advancements, such as hybrid propulsion in Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) drones which increases the loitering time, Augmented Reality (AR) technology for 2D and 3D Mapping, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in crowd controlling, are also propelling the growth of the drones market in countries, such as Israel and South Africa.
