Market Scenario:

The drone payload is the additional weight that drone can carry. Most drones are equipped with cameras, sensors, and other components by its manufacturer. Cameras can be useful payloads for the prevention, criminal investigation, and camera surveillance. Drones with sensors can be useful to supervise and enforce permits. However, there are some shortcomings, such as the privacy issue and national security regulations, which will restrain the growth of this market. 

Other useful payloads include, fire extinguishing materials, speakers and light signals for crowd control purposes. The miniaturization of payload component is the most incremental development. For instance, new materials and lighter and more efficient cameras create better trade-offs between the drone and its surveillance technology.

The drone payload system is the weight a drone can carry and includes cameras, sensors, and other components. It varies for different applications. For instance, the payload of drones used in the military sector is larger than the commercial drones and include weapon systems and missiles. Similarly, the payload of drones used for commercial applications is larger than the ones used for personal purposes. The payload of UAVs used in commercial sector includes letters, meals, medicines, and other packages for delivery. However, major restraints of the drone payload market include privacy issues and national security regulations.
