This first ever made unique and independent, 160+ page report of Drone Market Watch™ analyzes North America market for drones (UAVs) and robotics application in utility grid inspection regarding market dynamics, technology characteristics, industry structure, innovations and key industry vendors. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, Drone Market Watch™ has identified a series of market trends that will impact this market over the coming decade.

Since power outages cause substantial financial losses to the producers, distributors and also to the consumers of electric power, it is in the common interest to minimize failures on power lines. Therefore the inspection of electric transmission networks is of great importance for the power industry. It is an expensive and difficult task not only because power lines cover a vast territory, but also because a significant portion of them are located in remote and hazardous environments. Furthermore, for safety reasons, human intervention should be reduced as much as possible. UAVs and robotics offer an attractive cost and time saving option compared to conventional approaches to management of utility gird infrastructure.
