Autonomous Last Mile Delivery Market, By Platform (Aerial Delivery Drones, Ground Delivery Vehicles), By Payload Weight ( >5 kilograms, 5-10 kilograms, > 10 kilograms), By Range (Long, Short), By Region (North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Rest of the World) – Market Size & Forecasting(2016-2025)

COVID-19 Impact : Our team has been closely monitoring the current developments to identify the potential impact of COVID-19 on stakeholders and business processes across the value chain of industries. A special section about COVID-19 will be covered with the report to help companies in defining sustainable strategies.

Enhancement of the range and payload capacities of aerial as well as ground delivery drones is expected to drive the growth of Autonomous Last Mile Delivery Market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

Autonomous last mile delivery can be defined as the movement of goods from a transportation hub to the final delivery destination. The final delivery destination is most typically a personal residence. The focus of autonomous last mile delivery is to deliver items to the end-user as fast as possible.

The global autonomous last mile delivery market is segmented based on platform, weight, and range.

Based on the platform, it is segmented into aerial delivery drones and ground delivery vehicles. The aerial delivery drones are most widely used and preferred, owing to their ease of use and high maneuverability. These aerial delivery drones can travel long distances in a short period of time and are capable of delivering packages in geographically challenging locations.

By payload weight, the market is segregated into >5 kilograms, 5-10 kilograms, and < 10 kilograms.  The 5–10 kilograms payload weight is most widely used in aerial delivery drones and ground delivery vehicles. They are mainly used to deliver groceries and heavy parcels ordered by online shoppers. The increasing demand for highly efficient aerial delivery drones and ground delivery vehicles to carry out the cost-effective autonomous last-mile delivery of packages is contributing to the growth of this segment of the market.

Based on range, the market is classified into long-range and short-range. The long-range is usually >20 kilometers whereas the short-range consists of <20 kilometers. The distance traveled or range limit of aerial delivery drones and ground delivery vehicles is an important parameter considered for their use in different applications and hence the long-range is majorly used than the short-range.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • It enhances the range and payload capacities of aerial as well as ground delivery drones
  • The increasing demand for aerial delivery drones and ground delivery vehicles in logistics & transportation and retail & food delivery applications across the globe 

Key Developments:

  • In January 2019, Starship Technologies launched its first batch of robots at George Mason University (US) to deliver food to 40,000 students, faculty, and staff in the campus, in partnership with Sodexo
  • In November 2018, TigerBot, a Savioke-brand room service robot, launched all of its indoor deliveries, from food items and beverages to linens and toothpaste to guest rooms directly. This delivery service robot essentially serves as a butler; ensuring guests have a comfortable stay.
  • Kroger, the largest American supermarket chain, entered into a partnership agreement with Nuro to test the concept of driverless home deliveries by distributing grocery to customers at a very affordable and reasonable price of USD 5.95. The pilot project was conducted on August 16, 2019, at the Fry’s Food and Drug Store in Scottsdale, Arizona 

Regional Outlook: 

The global autonomous last-mile delivery market by region has been segmented by North America, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Eastern Europe, and the Rest of the World. The rest of the World includes South America and Africa. North America and the European region have been traditional regions for the aerospace & defense sector with the presence of major manufacturers and high market demand. In addition to this, these regions have been aggressive in terms of technological developments and research.
