Palm Beach, FL – August 23, 2023 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The Firefighting Drone Market has been growing consistently since after the pandemic, and is projected to have substantial growth in the coming years. Firefighting drones can be remotely controlled and can carry firefighting equipment such as foam dispensers or water cannons. The major purpose of designing firefighting drones was to control fires in areas that are inaccessible to firefighters or fire trucks like dense forests and high-rise buildings. These drones are capable to monitor and capture scenes in instances where firefighters and fire trucks cannot reach them. Several benefits associated with firefighting drones to prevent fire damages is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Growing instances of fire-related accidents in the oil and gas industry are majorly driving the demand for firefighters drones. In this industry, drones are being deployed for several applications such as inspection of offshore platforms, leak detection in pipelines, refining equipment, emergency response, and material handling. As per Cognitive Market Research’s latest published report, the Global Firefighting Drone market size was $1.31 Billion in 2022 and it is forecasted to reach $2.76 Billion by 2030. Firefighting Drone Industry’s Compound Annual Growth Rate will be 9.8% from 2023 to 2030. The report said: “In recent years, firefighting drones are used to fight forest fires. These drones can fly immediately to the location and map the affected area. During a forest fire, a firefighter drone gathers information about hitting hot spots with the help of thermal sensors and provides the information to firefighters. Footage or scenes captured by a firefighter drone is converted into a 3D map that allows civil authorities to determine the extent of the damage after the incident and verify damage claims by insurance companies.” Active companies in the markets this week include: Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: KTOS), Boeing (NYSE: BA), NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA).

Thus, several benefits of these drones are flourishing the market growth during the assessment period. In 2022, North America dominated the firefighting drone market and gained the largest market share of 40.5%. This growth is due to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) supporting initiatives and high government spending on the development of drones in the region. In the U.S., 43 states have active drone programs, and the highest number of drones found in Texas at 28, in 2022 which is expected to further propel the market growth in coming years.”
