“Shift toward solar-powered UAVs is likely to emerge as a key trend for

the global multirotor UAV market during the course of the forecast

period. UAV capabilities are continuously getting enhanced due to

advances in technology. Innovations in solar technology, in particular,

have led to the creation of UAVs that are powered by solar energy. These

UAVs provide high endurance of about 300 hours and are capable of

reaching double the height in comparison to traditional UAVs. Some

solar-powered UAVs can stay in the air for months or years and can

withstand temperatures up to 140°F,” said Abhay Singh, one of

Technavio’s lead analysts for defense

technology research.

“Leveraging the market potential with these enhanced capabilities, UAV

vendors are competing in terms of cost, technology, product efficiency,

and life cycle. Thanks to these trends, market competition is increasing

making technology cost-effective for end-customers,” added Abhay.
