The drone industry investments in 2022 infographic highlights the top countries for drone investments in terms of overall value. The infographic shows that in 2021, North America represented 64% of the total investment value going into drones, while in 2022 this figure was a much lower 51%. Meanwhile, the number two and three regions swapped places from the previous year: Asia rose from 14% of investments in 2021 to 27% in 2022 and overtook Europe, who fell from 20% to 17% in 2022.

Other regions are also shown on the infographic as well as their development from 2021 to 2022. South America’s share grew from 0% to 0.2% while the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region remained the same at 2% of total drone investments. Oceania, on the other hand, managed an increase from 0% in 2021 to 2% in 2022.

The lower part of the drone industry investments in 2022 infographic shows the total drone industry investments over the past decade. As the infographic shows, these grew exponentially from 2013 until 2021 and then decreased from 2021 to 2021. However, it is worth emphasizing that the 2022 total amount is still higher than the combined totals of 2018-2020, meaning the drone industry continues to perform well in terms of overall investment value.

If you’re looking for more information on the latest drone investments, read our blog post. Here is an excerpt from the blog:

“The overall value in global drone industry investments was still a whopping US$4.8 billion (higher than 2018-2020 combined). So the year-to-year decrease is far from a reason to worry or sound the alarm about the attractiveness of investing in drone technology. The record-breaking path may be over, yet the healthy growth of the drone industry through investments continues, and will likely remain that way in the coming years.
