COVID-19 Impact Analysis

As drone directly witnesses the demand from end-user industries, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted the growth of the drone analytics market. In addition, the current economic slowdown would lead to a reduction in the demand for drones from end-user sectors like mining, construction, and among others. However, as drones have potential application across different industries, the demand for drones is expected to fuel in the future.

Law enforcement bodies across the globe have adopted drones in order to enforce and maintain the lockdown restrictions and performing situation monitoring missions without risky exposure. The current norms and controls have lowered down the intensity of the broader supply chain disturbances created by the pandemic on the key companies based in the US.

Market Growth Factors:

Surge in the investments to create highly advanced drone software

As drone analytics is a new concept with a range of potential applications, chip companies, industrial conglomerates, and IT consulting companies have put hefty investments to inculcate and create the desired potential in the present generation of drones with the help of hardware and software updates. It is expected that in the last couple of years, drone startups including OEMs and associated companies in the supply chain have witnessed a huge number of investments.

Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) drones are witnessing a high adoption rate

In the last couple of years, the Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) feature-integrated UAVs drones have witnessed massive traction across the globe. This is due to the fact that these drones enable users to carry out complicated operations without the help of humans, as they are capable to operate beyond the domain of the human eye.

Market Restraining Factor:

Uncertain regulatory scenario

In the last couple of years, there has been an upsurge in the adoption of drone analytics; though, there is a lack of regulations and norms pertaining to this field in many emerging and underdeveloped countries. In addition, there are various disputes between governmental norms and any state or city norms to regulate airspace property rights, due to which drone operators could breach the regulations.

Application Outlook

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Thermal Detection, Aerial Monitoring, Ground Exploration, 3D Modeling and Others. The 3D segment would showcase the maximum growth rate during the forecast period. 3D modeling enables effective visualization and reconstruction assets. For example, 3D modeling technology can be used by a wind turbine engineer in order to visualize the development of a windmill. The images recorded by drones would be processed by the analytics software, further transforming into a 3D point cloud, and after into a robust 3D model.

Deployment Type Outlook

Based on Deployment Type, the market is segmented into On-Premise and Cloud. In 2020, the on-premise dominated the drone analytics market in terms of revenue. The segment would display the same trend throughout the forecasting period. On-premise deployment allows the customers to store data and create 2D/3D models quickly.

End User Outlook

Based on End User, the market is segmented into Power & Utility, Construction & Infrastructure, Oil & Gas, Agriculture, Transportation & Logistics, and Others. The power and utility segment obtained the maximum revenue share of the drone analytics market in 2020 and would showcase a similar kind of trend even during the forecast period. The power and utility sector requires integration of quick response and timely scrutiny to facilitate preventive and proactive measures.
