Did you know the global market for drone batteries reached $6.3 billion in 2022? 

It ain't stopping there, either. A recent report by Fact.MR predicts the battery market will achieve a compound annual growth rate of 8.3 percent in the next ten years. 

No secret here that the continuing escalation of drone deployment in almost every sector—from military to infrastructure to farming, entertainment, and beyond—is simultaneously driving growth in the battery market.

What does that mean from a business standpoint?

• North America appears to be the drone-battery mega-force, logging a 35.1-percent market share in 2021.

• Commercial and industrial batteries should reach a 50.4-percent market share this year.

• The leading drone-battery manufacturers employ sustainable technologies, and are focusing on product designs that address operational problems in harsh environments.
