The security drones report 2017

The prevalence, growth prospects, applications and regulatory challenges of drones and anti-drone tech in the global security market.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers has forecast that the global security drones market will be worth $10.5bn (£8bn) by 2020, surpassed only by infrastructure, agriculture and transport.

Watch some of the highlights below:

Drone-service providers Aviat Drones commissioned this report to gauge how widely both drone and anti-drone technology is already used in the security industry and the level of demand among those yet to deploy it. The security drones report 2017 also sets out to ascertain levels of demand for various applications – from aerial surveillance to licence plate identification and thermal imaging. We explore the potentially transformative effect of what remains a relatively novel technology in this industry.

However, this very novelty also means best practices and regulatory frameworks are still works in progress. Therefore the report examines the state of play in terms of UK and international regulations as well as technological challenges around battery life and inclement weather and how they might be surmounted.

The survey was completed by hundreds of security professionals, facility managers and senior executives from around the world (although the UK accounted for the largest portion).
