HD wireless video provider AMIMON and China's DJI are currently the leading providers of digital connections for wireless video technologies for sUAVs in commercial applications. While prosumer products comprise the largest market segment, holding nearly 70% revenue share today and expected to maintain close to 50% share into 2021, commercial products serve a critical role for more advanced operations that have higher performance demands. Commercial wireless video applications extend beyond the industrial and energy markets and include a wide breadth of target markets like search and rescue, reconnaissance, crime scene documentation, aerial photography, and real estate, among others.
"The primary limiting factors for the commercial sUAV market right now are regulations and society's comfort level with the technology," concludes Inouye. "The new FAA UAS regulations that went into effect in August are an example of steps taken in the right direction toward creating more a favorable operating environment and as sUAVs become more common, other concerns will start to fall to the wayside. In addition, new technologies like 5G and advanced machine vision/learning will also expand use cases and create ways to increase sUAVs' value to the commercial markets."
