Commercial drone market research and analytics company Drone Industry Insights (DRONEII) has released its 2020 rankings of the world’s top drone service providers, and Terra Drone Corporation has moved up to the top on the list.

In Europe, Terra Drone has expanded by making a large-scale investment in Skytools, a Dutch drone service company, thereby collaborating with other European group companies to provide higher-quality drone services to European private companies and government agencies.

In South East Asia, Terra Drone Malaysia opened in June 2020, and Terra Drone Indonesia has grown significantly and completed many projects including pipeline monitoring and flare stack inspection for major energy companies including Chevron. The expansion in Indonesia has also seen new capabilities being launched including drone based Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and drone based LiDAR surveying within the Terra Drone developed Terra Lidar system.

Globally, Terra Drone services a large range of markets including Mining, Oil and Gas, Energy generation, Agriculture, Maritime, Security and Defence. In 2021, Terra Drone Group expects to further accelerate digital transformation with drones and will further expand its service area throughout the world.
