Drone Services - Category Spend Analysis

 

According to analysts at SpendEdge, a key growth driver for the drone services market is the improving regulatory framework. The regulations imposed to regulate drones have been liberalized to support businesses that utilize their services. For instance, in the US, the FAA has implemented new rules and regulations that enable service providers to carry out drone operations in Class G (uncontrolled) airspace without authorization from air traffic control, but operations in any other airspace need authorization from air traffic control. Also, the process related to pilot certification program in the US has been streamlined to reduce the time required to certify an applicant. Hence, the ease of regulations around drone operations in continents such as North America and Europe will help drive the growth of the drone services in these regions.

Drone Services - Procurement Best Practices

 

One of the best procurement practices for buyers is to opt for service providers that have advanced software solutions, which can help automate mapping and photogrammetry. The software should be able to provide accurate and correct mapping by making use of a technique called orthophotos (photos that have been stitched together to make a large photograph). Also, service providers should be certified by authorities such as ASPRS of the US to get recognized for skills to calculate measurements required for photogrammetry (a technique that overlaps pictures/images to measure the environment).

Drone Services - Procurement Challenges

 

According to this procurement market research report, one of the procurement challenges faced by buyers in this market space is the stringent regulations on the usage of drone services. Even though countries such as the US and UK have liberalized regulations related to drone operations, many others are still reluctant to support drone flying in populated areas. This can limit the scope of buyers' data gathering requirements through drone operations, thereby affecting the accuracy of insights generated.
