Our drone investment database shows investment trends from the past decade, which include 1,600+ investments around the world and describing all regions and countries involved.

The drone investment database is also complemented by a partnership database. This database is comprised of 1,200+ partnership deals since 2015, including partners’ region and country as well as a distribution by segment (hardware, software, services). For a macro-economic perspective, the database also includes an analysis of who partnered with who in terms of segments and industries. That means inter-segment partnerships (hardware-hardware, hardware-software, software-service, etc) as well as cross-industry partnerships between specialized drone company and non-drone companies.

And in addition to drone investments, our report now features drone stocks and their performance throughout 2022. Find all the top drone stocks, including ticker symbol, IPO date, market cap, and 52-week range.

      FAQs about Drone Investment Database

      How does the Drone Investment Database differ from other products?

      Unlike other in-depth written reports, our database is comprised of an .xlsx file with listings of over 1,100 drone investments as well as 750+ partnerships in the drone industry. This is all the raw data that can be subsequently used to study particular trends, patterns or developments from specific companies or investors. However, the data only includes numbers, charts and graphs rather than paragraphs.

      In short: less text, more data.

      Do you also offer a Drone Investment Report?

      The report comes with a brief summary presentation which helps our customers organize, visualize and present the information in the database. In other years we have offered a report along with the database (click here for the 2020 version of the report). If your company requires a report-version of the database, please get in touch with us to discuss potential solutions: sales@droneii.com

      How was the data from drone investments and partnerships acquired?

      The information was collected by the Droneii team from all available public sources including press releases, company announcements, financial websites, online investment platforms, etc. When necessary, the information was corroborated with several sources in order to ensure quality and accuracy.

      Does the database include stock market data?

      YES!  The new drone investment database is focused on investments by companies or individuals into drone companies, but it also includes data from top drone stocks. The information is focused on 2022 and how the market capitalization evolved throughout the year.

      Note: There are technically a few other drone stocks out there but they have been excluded due to extremely low price and/or inactivity.

      Do you also offer any report with stock market investment data?

      Because of the activity, volatility, and sheer reach of financial markets, we currently do not offer information on drone stock investments. We occasionally publish blog posts on this topic, but this is not something that we are preparing yearly reports on.

      However, we do follow such information within the company, so if this is a topic that you are highly interested in, you can get in touch with us about a carrying out a commissioned study: sales@droneii.com.
