Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Drones are used in construction industry for surveying and inspection purposes. They are equipped with downward-facing sensors, such as red, green, blue (RGB), multispectral, thermal or Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR).  These drones are also getting used in many industries to save money, improve safety, and enhance the efficiency of their operations. These drones are also used to monitor long stretch of areas such as vegetation rows, roads, and railroads. Companies building and managing large infrastructure projects such as dams, water reservoirs, airports, industrial complexes, bridges are nowadays taking the help of drones to optimize their operations.

The global construction drone market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2021–2028). The increasing population growth and urbanization has also played an important role in the growing demand of commercial drones across the globe for residential and non-residential activities. For instance, the population of China had increased from 1.4 million in 2020 to 1.3 million in 2019. The increasing demand for commercial drones in applications such as land survey and infrastructure inspection is driving the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in August 2018, STRABAG, an Austria-based construction company deployed DJI Phantom 4 RTK drone for the survey of roads and pipelines. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of commercial drones by real estate companies are fueling the market growth during the forecast period. Real estate companies are using construction drones for filming and taking photos of construction sites, resorts, and vacant lands for the purpose of creating aerial maps & 3D models as well as for marketing. For instance, in June 2017, RE/MAX, a U.S.-based real estate company announced a strategic partnership with DroneBase, a U.S.-based drone service provider company, in order to provide construction drones to real estate professionals working for RE/MAX LLC for aerial imagery of project sites. These factors are expected to drive growth of construction drone market during the forecast period.

Global Construction Drone Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

COVID-19 has significantly disrupted almost all the industries including infrastructure, transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing, and others. To combat COVID-19 pandemic, most of the countries had implemented lockdown restrictions, which are now being eased slowly on phase-wise and industry-wise basis. This has significantly impacted the manufacturing sectors, as the facilities across the globe were temporarily shut down. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an increase in demand for construction drones owing to the increasing demand for remote-site monitoring, which is further driving the market growth. Thus, due to a variety of operational and financial benefits, construction professionals all over the world are adopting constructions drones/UAVs in various construction projects to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

North America is expected to dominant position in the global construction drone market during the forecast period.

Statistics:
