Market Dynamics:


A surge in application expansion such as line-of-sight applications such as aerial photography, offshore oil and wind energy platforms inspection, logistics, security, disaster control etc. is the prime driver of the market. Technological advancements such as growing autonomy made possible by advances in computational power, three-dimensional thrust vectoring flight control and machine learning are expected to trump the large challenges the industry faces. Advancements in materials such as development of carbon fiber, miniaturization has resulted in cost effectiveness due to low powerful propulsion technologies such as small electric motors and batteries.

However, it is computing capabilities and advances in sensor and software’s which is expected to provide the necessary impetus to propel the market from the realms of science fiction to real application. Thus advances such as system-on-a-chip (SOC) and single-board computers (SBC) are expected to cruise the market. The growing degrees of freedom (DOF) afforded by advances in sensor technology and real time data is further expected to add to the growth of the market.


High cost of installation and maintenance coupled with the nascent stage of the technology are the greatest barriers which need to be overcome. The scarcity of trained manpower coupled with the steep learning curve are other bottle necks which are grounding the market. Stringent regulations and licensing are regulatory restraints limiting the usage of drones.

Regional Analysis:

North America and Europe dominate the global landscape owing to the presence of large players, large purchasing power, development of shale oil, rapid adoption of technology and others. The development of offshore oil platforms especially in the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico is charging the market.

The Asia Pacific region accounts for the second largest market led by nations such as Russia, China, Japan and others. The Middle East and Africa region is skewed in favor of the Gulf economies of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and UAE.
