Drone Market Size To Reach $6 Billion in 2017
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV drones) are becoming increasingly talented and cheaper with the development of technology. The new report from international research firm Gartner also reveals this change; This vertical global market share is expected to reach $6 billion in 2017.
Unmanned aerial vehicle market volume, which will reach $6 billion with an increase of 34 percent according to Gartner’s report, will reach $11.2 billion by 2020. The number of vehicles to be produced in 2017 will increase by 39 percent compared to 2016.
It is known that UAVs are used for personal and commercial purposes. Gartner also segregates these two verticals and predicts that both categories will see significant growth. Gartner, who shared $1.7 billion in personal R&D sales, estimates that this figure will reach $2.3 billion in 2017. The same sales figure for commercial UAVs expected to rise to $3.68 billion from $ 2.8 billion.
Gartner also underlines that these categories have different dynamics. They describe the UAVs for personal use as vehicles that can not travel more than 5,000 meters, can not stay in the air more than one hour, and can not fly more than 500 meters. For these vehicles that are categorized under two kilograms, a price limit of five thousand dollars is drawn.
