$4.96 Billion Global Last Mile Autonomous Delivery Markets

Dublin, March 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “global last mile autonomous delivery market by platform (aerial delivery drones, ground delivery vehicles (delivery robots, autonomous vans and trucks)), solution , application, type, payload “Weight, Interval, Duration and Region – Forecast to 2030 report” has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The Last Mile Autonomous Delivery Market is valued at USD 860 Million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 4,964 Million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 21.5%.

The incorporation of advanced sense-and-avoidance systems into aerial delivery drones, the expansion of e-commerce, and the increased use of low-cost, light-payload drones by startups for product delivery have driven to the growth of autonomous last-mile aerial deliveries worldwide.

Additionally, the growing use of autonomous ground delivery vehicles is seen in the food and retail sector. It is mainly due to congestion in urban areas. Due to congestion, delivery of products to remote and remote locations, invalid or incorrect addresses, hard-to-locate destinations, coupled with the problem of severe labor shortage, often lead to increased costs delivery of products.

Automated delivery could be transformational for the retail industry, reducing delivery costs by 80% to 90% compared to a human doing it. Additionally, advancements in autonomous ground delivery vehicle technology and an increase in venture capital funding for the development of next-level ground delivery vehicles have bolstered the growth of the market.

The market for delivery drones in the air segment and autonomous vans and trucks in the ground segment is expected to grow with a higher CAGR owing to the growing need for autonomous delivery solutions in the food and retail industries. and the growing need for contactless solutions. deliveries of healthcare supplies using autonomous ground vehicles/air drones due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last mile autonomous delivery market winners include Starship Technologies (US), JD.com (China), Nuro (US), Amazon (US), Kiwi Campus (US), Zipline (USA), United Parcel Service (USA), Wing (USA), Flirtey (SkyDrop) and Aerodyne Group (Malaysia).

These key players offer drones applicable to various industries and have well-equipped and strong distribution networks in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Latin America and Africa.
