  • The number of units, by model, being sold by leading Chinese brands in 2019 and 2020.
  • Size of each market sector across each region.

Why This Report?

The publisher believes this report is the most accurate and detailed assessment of drone hardware sales to date.

To their knowledge, the research team is the first organization to leverage (and translate) customs data from China and use that to provide real data to industry stakeholders.

With the insights in this report, your organization will be better suited to understand what drones are selling into the market today, at what prices and how these different product categories are trending.

Whereas other reports may be able to offer general guidance, the detailed nature of the Drone Hardware Sector Report lets you quantify various opportunities and the sales of existing models.


The initial market sizings for 2019 and 2020 come from a mixed analysis of customs data, public drone company's financials and the 2020 survey data.

With the overlapping datasets, the publisher was able to both validate the assumptions and de-bias the survey data to make estimates about new, private companies.

The forecast for 2021 - 2026 assumes a diminishing growth rate, with different rates for various sectors of the market, accounting for regional variance. The varying growth rates are set by analysing current trends and discussions with industry stakeholders.
