Posted by Nita on February 25th, 2022

Prominent Players:

The dominant players operating in the market of global drones for energy industry are AeroVironment Inc. (US), ING Robotic Aviation (Canada), Drone America (US), DJI (China), Ascending Technologies Inc. (Canada), Draganfly Innovations Inc. (US), Aeryon Labs Plc. (UK), Aibotix GmbH Limited (UK), UAVision. (Canada), and Microdrones (Germany) and others.

Market Synopsis:

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), or drone is an aircraft devoid of human pilot and which is flown and controlled by a ground-based controller using wireless communications or may be autonomous by onboard computers. The global drones for energy industry market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 25.53% during the review period of 2017 to 2023.

Market Dynamics:


A surge in application expansion such as line-of-sight applications such as aerial photography, offshore oil and wind energy platforms inspection, logistics, security, disaster control etc. is the prime driver of the market. Technological advanacements such as growing autonomy made possible by advances in computational power, three-dimensional thrust vectoring flight control and machine learning are expected to trump the large challenges the industry faces. Advancements in materials such as development of carbon fiber, miniaturization has resulted in cost effectiveness due to low powerful propulsion technologies such as small electric motors and batteries.

However it is computing capabilities and advances in sensor and software’s which is expected to provide the necessary impetus to propel the market from the realms of science fiction to real application. Thus advances such as system-on-a-chip (SOC) and single-board computers (SBC) are expected to cruise the market. The growing degrees of freedom (DOF) afforded by advances in sensor technology and real time data is further expected to add to the growth of the market.


High cost of installation and maintenance coupled with the nascent stage of the technology are the greatest barriers which need to be overcome. The scarcity of trained manpower coupled with the steep learning curve are other bottle necks which are grounding the market. Stringent regulations and licensing are regulatory restraints limiting the usage of drones.

The global drones for energy industry market has been segmented by drone type, industry type, application, and region so as to provide the reader with an unbiased view of the market potentialities.
