1 Smartphone Controlled Drone Market Research Report By Forecast To 2023 Industry Survey, Growth, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2023 PREPARED BY Market Research Future (Part of Wantstats Research & Media Pvt. Ltd.)

2 2 Smartphone Controlled Drone Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023 Global Smartphone Controlled Drone Market Component (Airframe, Controller &Navigation System, Propulsion System, Others), Application (Commercial, Personal), Range (Less than 150 meters, More than 150 meters), & Region-Forecast Till 2023 Drone technology is evolving continuously, manufacturers are bringing in more advanced drones to the market every few months. Earlier drones were majorly used for military purposes, whereas now a days, these are controlled with the help of a smartphone and are used for commercial and personal purposes. To fly drones using a smartphone, the process is to download the android mobile phone app for operating drone and sync it with the drone. These apps are easily available for both Android phones as well as ios users, which make this drone popular. Each application for these drones could demand an operating system that provides users with the necessary controls. The recent technologies can be broadly divided into three main components, a program that decides the instructions for the drone, added sensors and their communication with the program, and the communication between the program and the drone. The advantage of smart phone controlled drones over other drones is that these are extremely easy to use. They feature an HD camera that streams video to the user s phone and are less expensive as compared to other drones. The restraints to this market are short per-battery flight time and difficulty operating during poor weather conditions. Key Players The key players in the smartphone controlled drone market are DJI (China), Parrot Drones SAS (France), CONTIXO (U.S.), 3DR (U.S.), Kidcia (China), Guangdong Cheerson Hobby Technology Company Limited (China), GoPro, Inc. (U.S.), DBPOWER (China), and Draganfly Innovations Inc. (Canada). Report

3 3 Smartphone Controlled Drone Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023 Segments and Regional Overview By components, the market has been segmented into airframe, controller & navigation system, propulsion system, and others. The airframe refers to the physical structure of the drone that aids in achieving controlled flight. The design and configuration of drone airframes mainly depend on the task to be performed and the payload to be carried. Aerial aluminum alloy, plastic, and carbon fiber are used for the construction of drone airframe. Nowadays, companies are focusing on developing drone airframe structures with reduced size, high durability, and other improved features. Drone technology is constantly evolving as innovations and big investments are bringing more advanced drones, which can be used with the help of a smartphone. By application, the market has been segmented into commercial and personal. Commercial smart phone controlled drones are becoming powerful business tools, and huge demand is being observed in construction, agriculture, and infrastructure inspection segments. Factors including upcoming startups and subsequent decline in drone costs and fierce competition are further boosting the market demand. North America dominated the smart phone controlled drones market in 2017, due to the increased application of drones in military, homeland security, and commercial operations. The region leads the global market in terms of expenditure and technological advancements and has many smart phone controlled drones. The U.S. generates a very high demand for drones used for surveillance purposes. Although, Canada made some considerable investments in the development of drones, the market is primarily dominated by the U.S., which is also the largest manufacturer of unmanned systems, globally. Europe is one of the dominating players in the market of smartphone controlled drones. Countries, such as the UK, France, and Germany are the major contributors to the market growth due to the presence of key manufacturers in the industry. The Asia-Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Developments related to drones in Asian countries and relatively demand for consumer electronic products are encouraging manufacturers to adopt a cost-effective technology in the smartphone controlled drones manufacturing process. Therefore, the smartphone controlled drones market is estimated to witness a CAGR of more than 18% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.
