Skylogic Research has announced its 2018 Drone Market Sector Report, examining global drone sales, service providers and users.
The research, carried out by a leading research and advisory services firm for the commercial drone industry and owner of Drone Analyst, is supported by DJI, DroneDeploy, DroneInsurance.com and Trimble.
Primarily, Skylogic found a growing demand for businesses to use drone-acquired data in their day-to-day operations.
Colin Snow, CEO and founder of Skylogic Research, outlined what he thought were the more interesting findings, he said: “If you believe the hyperbole, there are hundreds of thousands of drones in the airspace at the same time, but the survey finds that the average commercial user has just two drones that are only flying two projects a month and most of those flights consume less than three hours.”
Describing the survey itself, Snow said: “Our online market survey garnered over 2,500 respondents representing over 60 industries worldwide. Our analysis yields 10 key insights that summarise the current state of the industry, plus detailed analysis of drone adoption by businesses and enterprises.”
