The Drone Applications Report 2019

Are you looking to expand your reach across industries? Or, alternatively, are you considering the adoption of drones into your production system? Do you want to understand how drones have been applied, for what activities, and in what industry? DRONEII is delighted to present you our Drone Applications 2019 report and database.

The product

Our inaugural Drone Applications database is DRONEII’s answer to the many questions about the nature of drone applications that we regularly receive from our clients. In essence, it is a comprehensive overview of current and past use cases of drones in all industry sectors. In the report, the DRONEII team analysed over 730 use cases, conducted in over 100 different countries and by over 80 different manufacturers.

To produce this dataset, we carried out a thorough market study together with the ZAL Centre of Applied Aeronautical Research. The research was conducted over several months and gathered use cases dated between 2004 and 2018. Our team then broke down these use cases and analysed them to show you the existing trends between different manufacturers, industrial sectors, UAV configurations, sensor types and many more parameters. The database is contextualised through the diagrams and case studies in this report, but no future trends or market shares are forecasted – instead, a comprehensive overview of the uses of drones is provided.

The first chapter provides a data overview, breaking down the use cases by date, location, UAV configuration and more. It discusses industry leaders and what they offer within the market. Chapter 2 focuses on industry break downs: in addition to showing which industries employ drones and to what extent, it delves into the application methods these industries use, the types of sensors each uses and much more. Next, Chapter 3 breaks down the data by application method: showing you how many use cases were inspections, how many were deliveries, and so on. It provides an empirical overview of what sensors and UAV configurations are most suitable to each application method. The final chapter focuses on length and parameters of flights i.e. mission definitions. Discussing VLOS vs. BVLOS flights, it gives a rundown of which industries embark on which flights and what sort of data output they seek.
