Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The market is expanding due to the strong demand for drone analytics in industries such as agriculture and forestry, construction, insurance, mining and quarrying, utility, telecommunication, and oil and gas, as well as transportation and scientific research. Drone analytics can map inaccessible areas and save time and money on surveys and data collection.

Increasing demand for complete drone packages has witnessed drastic growth. The amount of data produced by drones have greatly expanded due to high-resolution cameras used for image mapping, video recording, and equipment tracking. However, drone-generated data is frequently unstructured. Drone analytics is crucial in structuring unstructured data to be analyzed.

Improving risk management through better data collection, analysis, and actionable insights, lower operational costs through improved efficiency and effectiveness in claims adjudication claims processing, and customer experience, insurance is one of the industries already deploying and expanding the potential of commercial drones.

Aerial site inspections can identify property characteristics that give the owner the option of pursuing a reduced risk profile or engaging in appropriate actions to reduce overall risk and support premium savings which is anticipated to drive the market.

Several governments have authorized BVLOS operations for drones in the commercial sector. They have given drone analytics companies permission for some commercial operations witnessing the industry’s growth in the coming years.

Agriculture industry is expected to grow fastest in 2021

The agriculture industry is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period as drone analytics is prominently used for crop spraying, seed planting, soil analysis, crop monitoring, and livestock inspection.

According to studies on the benefits of precision agriculture and drone platforms, farmers can boost their crop production by up to 5% while lowering their input expenses by 5%. By enabling closer, more frequent, and more timely inspections of their crops, drone analytics may help farmers better understand their crops.

Low-cost drone platforms enable farmers to regularly monitor and economically care for crops while lowering the expense of chemical and inspection treatments. These factors are attributed to the segment’s growth.

Aerial monitoring accounted for the largest market share

The aerial monitoring segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021. It is also estimated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period.

The increased utilization of drone analytics for real-time aerial monitoring allows for measuring construction sites and correcting errors quickly. By using the drone construction site, it is made possible to reduce dangerous accidents significantly. Furthermore, 3D Robotics (3DR) uses Autodesk's Forge platform to provide a UAV-to-cloud solution. Developments like these are expected to impact the growth of this segment positively. These factors are expected to aid the growth of this market.

Thermal detection is expected for the second largest market share due to the rising need for high-resolution photos and the widespread use of thermal cameras integrated into drones for body temperature detection and emergency supplies delivery.

Software as a service witnessed fastest growth over the forecast period

Based on type, the market is segmented into service and software as a service. Software as a service is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing focus on drone-based mapping and inspection services, growing emphasis on leveraging advanced software tools and platforms technologies, increasing demand for on-site data collection, and a strong focus on sharing the results with stakeholders.

End-to-end solution is expected for significant growth in 2021

Based on the solution, the market is categorized as end-to-end and point solutions. The end-to-end solution is expected to grow considerably during the forecast due to the split of end-to-end solutions.

These all-inclusive packaged solutions satisfy all operational needs, from data gathering to visualization and analysis. Due to their growing demand, market players offer processing, analysis, and management capabilities in a single solution.

North America is projected to grow at the highest during the forecast period

Due to the presence of numerous companies and the increasing demand for drones in the region, North America is identified as the region with the largest market revenue share, and this trend is anticipated to continue.
