Skylogic Research, LLC, which operates under the brand Drone Analyst, just announced the start of its 2017 Drone Market Sector Research, which promises to be its most comprehensive study of drone market trends and usage to date. The online portion of this research seeks to get opinions about who is buying and using small unmanned aircraft systems—otherwise known as drones This independent research is being underwritten by Airware and DroneDeploy and is designed to uncover fresh insights on which drone industry sectors are thriving (and which aren’t) and how businesses are using drone-acquired data in their day-to-day operations.
The survey will explore:
- Who’s buying what types of drones from which makers at which prices and for what use?
- How large are drone-based service providers and how and where are they positioning themselves to whom and which target industries?
- What concerns business buyers of drone-based projects most and why?
- How much are service providers and business buyers using flight management and data analytic software for image-based projects?

Why this study?
Colin Snow, CEO and Founder of Skylogic Research, believes the consumer and commercial drone market needs this study. He observes: “There is a lack of objective information on the drone industry. We find an absence of credible market-based research and little understanding of the difference between large industry forecasts and actual buyer adoption rates. This study should clarify much of that.”
When complete, the research study will provide a complete view of topics like:
- Critical industry drivers
- Vendor and service provider market share
- Business adoption trends and issues
- Market size for all drones and growth projections by segment
The survey will be in market for four weeks, and results will be available in September.
