Drone Industry Insights has released its 2019 list of the world’s leading drone service providers, and Zipline has come out on top for the second time in a row.
Zipline is one of only a few delivery companies that have made the list, with the vast majority being mapping, survey and inspection providing companies.
The report showed that the drone market is well dispersed geographically, with companies from 18 different companies making the top 40 ranking.
Rapid growth and international expansion helped Terra Drone move up to second place, while Aerodyne moved to third place.
Verity Studios and Skylark were the latest additions to the top 20 rankings.
Verity became the first drone show providers to make it onto the top 20, something DII described as a reflection of the growth of the entertainment segment of the drone industry.

And, in comparison to last year when there were 3 delivery DSPs in the top 20 ranking, this year there are 5 drone delivery companies in the top 20, reflecting a notable growth in drone deliveries, and the increased public attention this method of using drones is getting.
