The global drone data services market was worth $XX million in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $XX million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period 2019-2026.
Global Drone Data Services Market - Market Dynamics
The evolution of data analytics throughout major industry verticals is one of the significant factors positively influencing the market growth of drone data services, as it increases the adoption of drones and its associated services in the field of data collection and analytics. The drone service providers are hence focusing on creating tailor-made software solutions for specific industries, coupled with the technological innovation of drones. For instance, in October 2018, Kespry Inc. announced the availability of enterprise-grade inventory management for mining and aggregates companies, with customers able to reconcile data from SAP BW®, Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne®, and ViewPoint®. The improvement in the regulatory framework, such as the update in flight regulations by FAA concerning drone flights, helps in boosting the demand for data services. The need for accurate and standardized data points is also growing, with consumers preferring the use of drones for the benefits of high scalability satellite imagery.
The risk of data breach is a top concerning factor of customers, as the collected data is highly confidential and should remain free from external modification. The threat from cyber-attacks remains at large, as foreign individuals can attempt to access the collected digital data stored on cloud-based technologies through illegal means. The safety of such public data is of paramount importance, thus hindering the widespread adoption of drone data services on a global scale. The absence of a skilled workforce and operators also act as market deterrents, coupled with constraint in endurance affecting the performance of drones.
The rising technological innovation in artificial intelligence and machine learning languages and successful integration of blockchain technology in commercial drones is expected to present new opportunities for business expansion to key market players.
Global Drone Data Services Market - Segment Analysis
Global Drone Data Services Market, By End-User, 2017 (%)
