Global Aerial Drones and UAV in Industry and Defense Market Research Report Bundle 2018: Expansive Use Cases and Innovative Applications across Many Industry Verticals

The “Aerial Drones and UAV in Industry and Defense: Supporting Technologies, Solutions, Market Outlook and Forecasts 2018 – 2025” report has been added to’s offering.

This report evaluates commercial and military drones market including enabling technologies, solutions, applications and services. The report assesses the market outlook and provides detailed forecasts for revenue and deployment globally, regionally, and within major countries through 2025. The report also provides coverage of 5G and Edge Networks.

An aerial drone (unmanned aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicle or UAV) is any aircraft that operates without direct human intervention from within or on the aircraft. The global drone market is comprised largely of commercial and military applications. Some of the major non-military verticals and use cases served by UAV/Drone include: Civil Infrastructure, Construction, Mining and Extraction (Oil & Gas, Timber, etc.), Precision Agriculture, Public Safety (Law Enforcement, Emergency Response & Search and Rescue), Surveying and Mapping, Utilities (Electricity, Gas, etc.). Military applications include various offensive and defensive applications as well as homeland security solutions.

The commercial drone market segment comprises hardware, software and services. By way of example, drone hardware includes fixed wing drones, rotary bland drones, nano-drones, and hybrid drones. Commercial drone market segments assessed include Energy and Propulsion, Automation Systems, Collision Avoidance Systems, Cyber Security, On-board (distributed) Data Processing, and Distributed Communications (communication data links and radio).

The introduction of 5G and expansion of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) infrastructure is anticipated to be a major catalyst for expanded and richer UAV/Drone use cases. Greater capacity and significantly lower latency afforded by 5G and MEC enable improved control and more sustainable flight as well as a wealth of new applications and services.
