Posted in Market on December 2, 2019

Civilian drones for professional uses had a recent but encouraging success. A Statista study estimates their value in 2020 at $5.6 billion.
Jean-Marc Crépin, CEO of Azur Drones, presents the main trends in this market.

Professional drones market

 

The drone market has been considerably shaken up over the last few years. After a development phase essentially driven by general public drones, the professional drone market has quickly developed. Its development has finally been more driven by the concept of the drone and the fascination around drones as object than by applied uses with real business models.

Today, we can say that we have seen this market calm down as a certain number of operators have stopped trading. Investors are today more wary of the professional drone market. The remaining operators are focused on value creation and determining a real business model that can provide customers with a genuine service.

For Azur Drones it is important to focus on what value means for our customers, what will give them real added value. And that is why for the last 3 years we have chosen a market focus, concentrating on an application that to us represents a great deal of added value and an important return on investment for our customers, meaning: autonomous drones to secure industrial sites, sensitive sites mainly.

Azur Drones is today a company of over 50 people based in Mérignac, near Bordeaux in Gironde. For 3 years, we have focused all our efforts on becoming a world leader in autonomous drones for security and safety applications. The first question we ask ourselves is: what value are we bringing our customers. At Azur Drones, our guiding line can be summed up in a few words: we reduce our customer risks.
