      The Drone Utilization Report is the only report that provides specific data and forecasts on the number of commercial drone units sold, estimation and forecast of “drones in the air” (operational units in the market), number of drone flights, total flight hours, and sub-vertical forecasts for drone use in all 17 industry verticals.

      In other words: it is the only report that provides an in-depth look at the use of commercial drones from 2023-2030.

      What is a prosumer drone?

      Commercial prosumer drones are drones that cost less than US$10,000.

      What is a professional drone?

      Commercial professional drones are drones that cost more than US$10,000.

      How do you calculate the number of drones in the air?

      The number of commercial prosumer and professional drones in the air is calculated based on two main factors: the unit sales of drones and the percentage of drones that are (still) in service each year.

      Who is the Drone Utilization Report intended for?

      This Drone Utilization Report is an ideal resource for anyone trying to understand how drones are actually being used in terms of flights, flight hours, VLOS, BVLOS and how many drones are and will be operating on the commercial market until 2030.
