A drone is an automated, unmanned, and mechanized vehicle that is mobile in nature and can be used to perform varied tasks, as opposed to a robot that performs the same task repeatedly like a manufacturing robot. Drone types include unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned surface vehicles (USVs), and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).

North America accounts for the largest market share of the global drone market, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. Key market participants include General Atomics, Insitu Inc., AeroVironment, SZ DJI Technology, Autonomous Surface Vehicles, Oceaneering International, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman.

Reasons for Doing the Study:

Since the previous edition of this report, the drone market has continued to evolve. In particular, the overall market growth rates forecast in the previous edition now appears to have been too high, extending the time-line for the market’s development. In order to give its readers, the most up-to-date and accurate assessment of future market opportunities, the publisher decided to issue this revised report.
