Growing Use in Energy Infrastructural Projects Underpins Growth

A large impetus has come from the growing adoption of drone surveillance for monitoring progress of various energy infrastructural projects, most notably solar energy. The trend is evident in developing regions. In particular, Asia Pacific, has emerged as rapidly rising market. The region will likely emerge out as a key generator of revenue to the global drone surveillance market for energy industry. Strides being made by energy infrastructure developments will be a key factor propelling growth.

On the other hand, North America will display a lackluster growth. However, it will still account for the leading region in the global drone surveillance market for energy industry. The vast prospect aside, lack of standard regulations on drone usage is likely to stilt growth both in emerging as well as developed markets for some time to come. 

As players in the energy industry will understand the vast potential of this incipient technology especially for inspecting new renewable energy projects, business propositions for the uptake of drone surveillance technology and solution will surely grow. Moreover, the use of drone inspection for reducing outages is expected to sustain the lucrativeness of the market.
