UAV Battery Market Report Information by UAV Type (Medium-Altitude Long Endurance (MALE), High-

Altitude Long Endurance (HALE), Tactical, Small), Battery Type (Fuel Cell, Lithium-ion, Nickle Cadmium,

Lithium Polymer), & Region Forecast till 2023

A battery is an integral part of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) that consists of stored energy used to provide power during

flight. The evolution of battery bus architecture in UAVs has simultaneously evolved their propulsion system. Different

parameters are present to measure the performance of the drone battery such as specific energy, charge rate, cycle life, and

cost per kilowatt-hour. Significant investment has been made on the development of battery with higher specific energy,

which should lead to rapid growth during the forecast period. However, major restraints of the market are high discharge

rate, high cost, and low payload capacity of UAVs. The size of battery has made a significant impact on the vehicle weight

and flight range by helping achieve high operating efficiency.

Moreover, government agencies, such as Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Air Transport Agency (FATA), are

working on policies to improve the efficacy of battery performance. In addition to that, Tesla is working on battery

technology to improve flight longevity and efficiency. Earlier, the drone flight duration did not last for even 30 minutes,

whereas continuous development in drone architecture has improved the flight duration to one hour. With the

development of disruptive technology, the practical application of unmanned aerial vehicles gets diversified.

The increased need for improved endurance and longer flight duration in drones will offer new growth opportunities for the

market players. The factors responsible for the growth of the global UAV battery market are the growing demand for

unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). . Fuel cell technology can be a better option to improve the operating performance of

UAVs. In general, fuel cells are favored more than conventional batteries in long missions and low average power demands.

Meanwhile, Ballard Power Systems signed a contract with Insitu, a Boeing subsidiary, to develop a next-generation highperformance

fuel cell propulsion system to power unmanned aerial vehicles.

Segmentation and Regional Analysis

The global UAV battery market is segmented into UAV type, battery type, and regions. Among the UAV type, the Medium-

Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) UAV is most widely used and has the largest market share due to long duration flights at an

altitude of 10,000-30,000 feet. In terms of segmentation based on battery type, the fuel cell is estimated to have the largest

demand in the UAV battery market during the forecast period, due to increase in R&D spending in fuel cells. The main

advantages offered by fuel cell powered UAVs include low maintenance, no lubricants, and higher flight duration, which can

last to 8 hours. Cella Energy signed a contract with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to develop and evaluate a fuel cell

power system for IAI’s BirdEye Mini UAV.

On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and

South America. The North America region is expected to dominate the market in future, due to increased investment in

drones. Asia Pacific region is presently second to North America in the global UAV battery market, and is estimated to trail

North America during the forecast period due to extensive use of civilian UAVs and increased defense spending in regions

such as Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Indonesia. Thus, the global UAV battery market is estimated

to witness a CAGR of 16% from 2018 to 2023.
