Buy commercial drones in russia now become a challenge as demands increase amid russian aggression against Ukraine.
Also, the situation was heated up by DJI, which decided to leave both Ukrainian and russian markets and held up to 90% of the russian consumer drones market share before the invasion.
While the average market price rose up to 30% since February, the prices in the segment of drones used in the oil and gas industry, inspections and search and rescue operations skyrocketed up to 200%.
Some local russian market experts predict also a shortage of high-capacity batteries for drones in nearest future as supply chains are also broken.
Citing russian industry sources Kommersant reports that currently available commercial drones are only suitable for surveillance due to their limited payload, battery, and flight range.
