Global Drone Technology Market in Education Sector 2017-2021
About Drone Technology in Education Sector
Drone, more commonly also known as unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) refers to devices that are miniature versions of aircraft systems. These devices can be operated without human intervention within the aircraft system. Drones with fixed wings are similar to aircraft. They are simple in structure and are more efficient than the drones with rotary wings. The former proves benefits such as higher speed and long flight duration.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global drone technology market in education sector to grow at a CAGR of 14.61% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global drone technology market in education sector for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Drone Technology Market in Education Sector 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global drone technology market in education sector: DJI, Draganfly, Extreme Fliers, and Parrot.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3DR, Action Drone, Pix4D, Skycatch, Skyward - A Verizon Company, and Syma.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is surge in volume from emerging countries. The most prominent vendor in the global drone market is DJI, which is a Chinese company. China is already a technologically advanced economy. In this economy, consumers show a keen interest in procuring new gadgets. With key players such as DJI and Parrot emphasizing on increasing their presence in the consumer drones market, there will be a significant traction in China.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is incorporation of thermal imaging in drones to improve learning in dark. Thermal imaging is a technique where thermographic cameras detect the extent of radiation which is present within the range of infrared rays. They are usually beneficial at night. Radiation with a wavelength between 9 and 14 micrometers is identified by thermographic cameras. Combining thermal imaging or thermography with drones is helpful to students studying courses related to photography, and media and entertainment. With these thermal imaging drones, students can capture images at night.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is challenges in terms of safety aspects. Unlike manned aircraft, drones are not built to strict safety standards. The primary issue faced by consumer drones is their failure during operations at midnight, thereby, leading to their destruction. The step taken to prevent drones from causing harm to manned aircraft and infrastructure is to restrict them from flying near airports and sensitive areas such as military spaces. Prosumer drones usually need to abide by regulatory rules, for instance, embedding geo-fencing in remote control software of drones.
