15 May 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Despite being in its nascent stage, the civilian drone market is booming, with the trend especially noticeable in France. A vast number of trials are presently being performed with professional drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), with the first major contracts not lagging behind. A variety of novel UAE applications are constantly being developed. The use of drones in all industry sectors is opening up a host of new opportunities; meantime, the industry stakeholders began facing a range of major challenges.

Moving forward, in 2016, the market for drones is expected to gather speed. Civilian drone technology is on the verge of maturity, offering great potential to create jobs and growth alike. If the market kicked off with the development of hobby drones for consumers, its growth potential now lies to a large degree in the rise of commercial applications. Upon condition that a suitable regulatory framework is introduced, and no significant disruption takes place, like a number of accidents сaused by UAVs, nearly 170, 000 commercial drones are forecast to be operating across the globe by end-2020, alongside about 12 million hobby drones.

The report examines the regulations in Europe and the USA which hinder or stimulate the market development, and concludes with 5-year forecasts for the civilian drone market including civilian drone sales through to 2020.
