As the value of commercial drones in a wide variety of industries
increases, so will the importance of drone service providers (DSPs).
This research focuses on 23 companies considered the top firms providing
third-party drone-based data collection and analysis globally.

DSPs aim to offer clients solutions to business problems using a
combination of drones, certified commercial drone pilots and data
capture, processing, and display software. Common commercial uses for

The DSPs covered in this study do not include companies that only
conduct aerial photography and video, or those that also utilize manned
aviation for data collection. Each competitor is profiled separately and
each profile contains information about where the company is located,
when it was established, important partnerships it has established, its
services, and other relevant business details.

From the information gathered for developing profiles, each
company is evaluated under the following categories:

  • Service: What drone-based services are provided and
    in what verticals? How good are the company's services and what
    feedback has been provided by customers?
  • Management: What kind of experience does the
    management team have in directing start-ups and in the technology
    areas required for providing drone services? Does the company employ
    the proper subject matter experts?
  • Business Plan: Does the business plan only revolve
    around providing drone services? Does the company also provide other
    services like drone pilot training or in-house drone program
    consulting? Are there any significant partnerships that can create
    synergies to give the company a competitive advantage?
  • Funding: How much investment capital has the company
    raised to date? Is the operation part of a larger company that can
    support its growth?

Once evaluated, the companies are ranked in a heat map to identify the
ones most likely to grow and survive in a market that is crowded with
motivated and innovative competitors. In addition, growth opportunities
within the DSP market are discussed, and several useful recommendations
are presented. Explanations of market challenges and trends are also
included. The study concludes with strategic insights for participants.
