Predicting the Success of Commercial Drone Applications

April 02, 2018 | State of the Market Report

The commercial drone industry has progressed quite a bit in the last few years, and technology, regulations, and applications have had time to grow. Despite positive early predictions and a continued rhetoric around agriculture, it hasn't been able to gain the traction necessary to call it a success, and instead other applications have surged past. To determine success within the commercial drone industry, we need to consider the relationship of three key points: application-specific requirements, current technical capabilities, and existing regulatory restrictions. In this report we look at the alignment of these three factors to predict an application's success.
