This report analyzes North America market for drones (UAVs) application in oil and gas industry regarding market dynamics, technology characteristics, industry structure, innovations and key industry vendors. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, we have identified a series of market trends that will impact this market over the coming decade.

Falling oil prices in the beginning 2016 to their lowest level since 2003 led to high pressure to the global oil and gas industry for emergent cost reduction wherever possible. Oil and gas pipelines with more than 3.9 million km total length worldwide are subject to physical wear out and need regular inspections throughout their lifespan. Maintenance, structural inspections and surveillance activities of oil and gas rigs are costly to plan and execute, and must be done routinely to avoid leaks, production outages and unplanned shutdowns. UAVs offer an attractive cost and time saving option compared to conventional approaches to facility management in oil and gas industry. Several global oil and gas corporations have deployed drones (UAVs), and found that they demonstrated significant, measurable value, including improving industry operator safety. Drones (UAVs) can transmit live, high-definition video, left, and infrared video to inspectors on the ground, who can identify metallic components showing signs of thermal fatigue and locate sources of gas leaks at oil and gas rigs.
