DRONEII‘s State of Drones Report provides even more data and exclusive insights on the drone market, coming directly from drone industry professionals themselves.

The report dives more deeply into which drone manufacturers (brands) are the most commonly-used by drone operators throughout the industry and across the globe. It also splits their market shares for drone service providers and business-internal services as well as mentioning the reasons to adopt drones and which tasks these drones are used for. There is also more data on which brands are generally used for which tasks, what the most common payloads and software are as well as how often flights are carried out.

At a more macro-economic level, the 33-page State of Drones Report also includes data on export quotes for drone companies, and this is broken down by industry sub-segment (hardware vs software) as well as by country. For our subscribers, we have also included information on the most common target markets (countries) for drone companies as well as company revenues by sub-segment and the most-served industries for drone manufacturers.
