A Regional Discussion of Companies Well-positioned to Exploit the Commercial UAS Market

This market insight provides a competitive assessment of global companies that are well-positioned to take advantage of the commercial UAS market and discusses the following topics: competitive advantages for top companies in each region, developmental achievements and/or innovations that signal a company’s advanced technological capabilities, and discuss significant company news that adds to the company’s viability as a commercial competitor.

Key Points

•Frost & Sullivan forecasts that small unmanned aerial systems (UASs)—under X pounds—will comprise X to X% of the commercial market platforms sold over the next decade.
•Many companies that market UASs for commercial applications have partnered with other manufacturers as well as sensor developers to offer UAS services as an alternative to purchasing platforms only.
•The global market for commercial UASs will be crowded with manufacturers and/or service providers. A company’s survival will be dependent on them having the following qualities:
oInexpensive but effective airframes and services
oLow cost of operation/ownership
oPlatforms that are safe, easy to fly, and durable
oA global network of distributors
oTechnologically advanced platform capabilities that include modular payloads, autonomous operation, operation in inclement or extreme weather conditions, collision avoidance, beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) operation, and the simultaneous operation of multiple platforms from one ground control station (GCS)
oAdvanced software for efficient, precise, and timely data exploitation
oAbility to properly assess customer requirements
•As UASs transition from military to civilian use, more venture capitalists are investing in the trend. According to The Washington Post, $X million was invested in US SUAS start-ups in the first nine months of 2013.

Purpose
