Drones: changing market dynamics and emerging new opportunities

Drones: changing market dynamics and emerging new opportunities

The drone market is changing. In this premium article, we will analyse the investment trends into drone start-ups, showing that the investment peaked in 2015. We will then consider changing market dynamics driven largely by the commoditization of the drone platform hardware. Next, we will consider the emerging application pipeline of drones before showing how the market is forecasted to change in the coming decade. We will then examine the use of drones in agriculture as a case study before identifying emerging new opportunities in drone software, services, and specialized hardware such as sensors.
