The Market is Expected to Steadily Increase its Total Revenue, Even as the Number of Competitors Shrinks Over the Next Few Years
As the value of commercial drones in a wide variety of industries increases, so will the importance of drone service providers (DSPs). This research focuses on 23 companies considered the top firms providing third-party drone-based data collection and analysis globally. DSPs aim to offer clients solutions to business problems using a combination of drones, certified commercial drone pilots and data capture, processing, and display software. Common commercial uses for DSPs include mapping, surveying, construction monitoring, infrastructure inspections, energy asset inspections, insurance inspections, precision agriculture, and aerial photography/video. Some DSPs offer a wide range of services while others prefer to concentrate on specific vertical markets.
The DSPs covered in this study do not include companies that only conduct aerial photography and video, or those that also utilize manned aviation for data collection. Each competitor is profiled separately and each profile contains information about where the company is located, when it was established, important partnerships it has established, its services, and other relevant business details. From the information gathered for developing profiles, each company is evaluated under the following categories:
Once evaluated, the companies are ranked in a heat map to identify the ones most likely to grow and survive in a market that is crowded with motivated and innovative competitors. In addition, growth opportunities within the DSP market are discussed, and several useful recommendations are presented. Explanations of market challenges and trends are also included. The study concludes with strategic insights for participants.
