Commercial Drones market to become a $43B opportunity by 2024


Commercial Drones Market Report 2019 - 2024 - Press release

PRESS RELEASE: Hamburg, Germany – 12 June 2019 //

IoT Analytics, a leading provider of market insights & competitive intelligence for the Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and Industry 4.0, today published an inaugural market report on drones titled “Commercial Drones Market 2019-2024”.

The research, undertaken in collaboration with the boutique research and consulting firm Drone Industry Insights, shows that the Commercial Drones market is accelerating in 2019 as ongoing investment and market consolidation continues. Spending on Drone-related hardware, software and services for both commercial and private markets is forecast to grow at a rate of 20.5% per year until 2024.

Over the past 20 years, drones have evolved from basic hobbyist toys to complex IoT devices. As more and more advanced IoT technology is being integrated into drones it is possible to have drones constantly connected and streaming data in real-time for instant analysis and decision making. Furthermore, 5G technology is expected to be a key driver for the drone market in the coming years with the main benefits being able to react to commands in real-time and enabling instant insights from the drones’ measurements in real-time due to the technology’s high data rate and low latency.

Report Insight:

Drones have become more connected and more intelligent over time


Commercial Drones Market Report 2019 - 2024 - Drone evolution

Drone capabilities have rapidly expanded beyond consumer products, adding on-board intelligence for real-time remote control, video streaming, environment sensing capabilities and automatic self-landing. While in the 1990s, drones had no specific intelligence and uplink connectivity only, drones have nowadays become intelligent “IoT devices” that are constantly connected (via RF or 4G). Today’s drones cover a large number of IoT applications such as mapping, surveying, inspection, monitoring, photography & filming, and delivery of goods.multi-rotor drones equipped with sensors are being deployed in mines and quarries for underground gas detection. The drones are used to sense gas composition and density for improved work safety and shortening waiting times after blasts.

Report Content Overview:

The Commercial Drones market report forecasts a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.5% over the time frame of 2019-2024, with annual spending surpassing US$43.1 Billion by 2024. These numbers are based on the drone related revenue of the leading companies in the field, across 15 industry segments (including Agriculture; Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation; Construction; Educational Services; Energy (Utilities); Health Care and Social Assistance; Information; Insurance; Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction; Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services; Public Administration; Real Estate, Rental & Leasing, and Industrial Plants; Safety & Security; Transportation and Warehousing; Waste Management and Remediation Services).

The market is broken down into three distinct categories of hardware, software, and services and presented across 6 regions (Asia, Europe, North America, MEA, South America, Oceania) including 62 countries. In addition, the report details regulations for 20 countries, provides analysis on 731 application examples and presents 5 trends. In developing the 322-page report, the analyst teams at IoT Analytics & Drone II studied over 1,000 technology companies that offer commercial drone solutions.

Commenting on the report findings, IoT Analytics Managing Director Knud Lasse Lueth said:

“Drones are a really hot technology area right now which is often underestimated and not widely covered. Many people only take notice of drones as a hobbyist toy or they hear about Amazon planning to use drones for order fulfilment. What they don’t realize is that commercial drones has become a billion dollar market in recent years in industries like energy, construction, and agriculture. Operators of windfarms, for example, are seeing a step-change improvement in costs and service level when using drones for remote inspection. We expect to see a myriad of drone success stories the coming years, driven by new drone intelligence and more favourable regulation.”
