Technavio’s latest research report announces the top five leading vendors for the global drone market for the period 2015-2019.

“A shift towards solar-powered UAVs is likely to emerge as a key trend for the global multirotor UAV market during the course of the forecast period. UAV capabilities are continuously getting enhanced due to advances in technology. Innovations in solar technology, in particular, have led to the creation of UAVs that are powered by solar energy. These UAVs provide high endurance of about 300 hours and are capable of reaching double the height in comparison to traditional UAVs. Some solar-powered UAVs can stay in the air for months or years and can withstand temperatures up to 140°F,” said Abhay Singh, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for defense technology research.

“Leveraging the market potential with these enhanced capabilities, UAV vendors are competing in terms of cost, technology, product efficiency, and life cycle. Thanks to these trends, market competition is increasing making technology cost-effective for end-customers,” added Abhay.
