Research and Markets has introduced Wintergreen Research's new report, ‘Drones: Market Strategies and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2016-2022’ to their offering.

The complete report provides a comprehensive analysis of drones in nine different categories, illustrating the diversity of uses for remote flying devices. The use scenarios cover drone aerial systems forecasts by sectors such as oil and gas, disaster response, etc.

Drones are versatile. They are flying cameras and weapons and are being used elevate a camera above the ground to allow users to look down from above. Thus, users can choose thousands of vantage points in order to extend visualisation.

Drones’ feature of better and more flexible visualisation means that they are set to make various industries far more productive. Drones connect seamlessly and securely to the internet and to each other. Their use provides the prospect of trillions of dollars in economic growth.

Drone aerial vehicle (UAV) technology has reached a level of maturity that has permitted DJI to garner US$1 billion in revenue in 2015, doubling their revenue in one year. Several industries around the world, including the pipeline industry, have found vendors adapting to drone availability. Use cases are evolving rapidly. Video, photos, specialised video, targeted video and package delivery systems are offered.

Next generation commercial drones are used for utility pipeline and construction inspection, 3D mapping, commercial pipeline observation, border patrol, package delivery, photography and agriculture are more energy efficient, last longer and have a significantly lower cost of operation than manned aircraft.

Drones markets promise to grow significantly because of the more economical visualisation and navigation provided by systems. Visualisation includes mapping from the air, inspection from the air, surveillance from the air, and package delivery from the air. The unmanned aircraft equipped with cameras are able to do things that cannot be done in any other way, which bodes well for market development for the pipeline industry and beyond.
