Top 6 Companies Leading the Global Unmanned Helicopter Market

top unmanned helicopter companies


Laflamme Aero Inc., Velos Rotors Inc., Schiebel Corporation, CybAero AB, Alpha Unmanned Systems SL, and UAVOS Inc., among others, are key players in the global unmanned helicopter market. SwissDrones Operating AG, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd., Steadicopter Ltd., and Flint Hills Solutions LLC, are other significant players. 


The global unmanned helicopter market would likely grow at a CAGR of 15.1% during 2022-2027. Helicopter drones refer to unmanned aircraft that run on the same principles of flight that govern manned helicopters, employing spinning rotors to produce thrust and lift.


Helicopter drones are capable of carrying a variety of payloads, such as environmental sensors, missiles and offensive capabilities, daytime and IR cameras, LiDAR scanning systems and radio relay equipment. Applications include ISR, military and defence, search and rescue, battlefield fire support, mapping and surveying, security and law enforcement, industrial inspection, precision agriculture, and others. Such applications are expected to drive the global unmanned helicopter market. UAS helicopters have VTOL capability, thus are capable of operating in a broader variety of ground conditions as compared to fixed-wing aircraft (which need a specific amount of space to land and take off). VTOL rotary wing UAVs are therefore preferred for maritime operations, surveillance and inspection. 


Asia, Pacific, North America and Europe are likely to be key markets.
