Research and Markets has announced the addition of Wintergreen Research, Inc's new report "Smart Commercial Drones: Market Shares, Market Strategies, and Market Forecasts, 2015 to 2021" to their offering.
This forecast number is arrived at by close examination of all the segment growth trajectories. Segments are, Agriculture, Oil and Gas, Border Patrol, Law Enforcement, Homeland Security, Disaster Response, Package Delivery, Photography, Videography. Each of these will grow at a different pace, depending on the use case effectiveness of the smart commercial drones. Commercial grade consumer video drones represent the largest revenue segment in 2015 and remain the biggest throughout the forecast period.
Next generation Smart Commercial drones leverage better technology, they support high quality video camera work in every industry. The drone technology is evolving: better stability, better reliability, better navigation, softer landings, longer flights, better ability to carry different payloads.
Affordable, useful camera drones are available.
Drones are smart when they have sensors and software that permits automated response to camera or sensor input. Smart drones are evolving the ability to interconnect to smart phones, but drones are smart even without smart phone guidance systems. Smart commercial drones connect seamlessly and securely to the Internet and to each other.
Smart commercial drones have a computer inside. They are easy to fly, maneuverable remotely, contain sensor logic. Soon all smart drones will have computer driven collision avoidance technology. Remote operation occurs in the context of a workflow and sensors. Cameras are improving dramatically to permit management of video and picture taking that is realistic and detailed.
In this study, we illustrate how drones achieve doing work even though they are remotely controlled. Drones are expected to provide billions of dollars in economic growth. The economic benefits are significant. Developing countries are more receptive to drones than the U.S. is. In the US the FAA early on granted one exception, then granted 8 commercial UAS exemptions, then 10 more. It has by now granted 1,000 exceptions, but this does not a market make.
