The unmanned aircraft and systems market can be generally segmented into those that are remotely piloted and those that have at least some degree of autonomous operation. While the consumer market is becoming increasingly interested in small unmanned aircraft and systems (a subset of UAS market, typically flown for hobby and recreational purposes), the type and number of applications for UAS for business applications is rapidly expanding across a diverse array of industry verticals.
The global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market is comprised of commercial and military applications. Commercial drone technology includes energy and propulsion systems, automation system, collision avoidance system, cyber security and jamming, on-board data processing, and communication data links and radio frequency spectrum capacity. Military unmanned aircraft and systems market solutions include defense and various homeland security solutions.
The commercial drone market segment comprises hardware, software and services. By way of example, drone hardware includes fixed wing drones, rotary bland drones, nano-drones, and hybrid drones. Commercial drone market segments assessed include Energy and Propulsion, Automation Systems, Collision Avoidance Systems, Cyber Security, On-board (distributed) Data Processing, and Distributed Communications (communication data links and radio).
Unmanned Aircraft and Systems Market Dynamics
Leading companies such as Amazon are planning to widespread use of UAVs for retail delivery and related logistics. Drones are also anticipated to be used extensively in public safety including law enforcement, search and rescue operations. In addition, commercial drone services companies are anticipated to make a big impact on enterprise and industrial business operations. Accordingly, market players within the unmanned aircraft and systems market ecosystem are aggressively positioning themselves within the UAS value chain.
Unmanned aircraft and systems market services include mapping, survey, and inspection services of critical assets such as wind turbines, utility assets, and commercial properties. Accordingly, Mind Commerce sees the UAS market consisting of both stand-alone services companies as well as those integrated with communications service providers. By way of example, Verizon Communications purchased Skyward, which provides drone solutions to a variety of companies.
