Skylogic Research and BZ Media Release First In-depth Research of Drone Sales

Study forecasts U.S. drone market to reach $2.9B by 2018; pinpoints market share of major UAV brands

REDWOOD CITY, CA, May 2, 2016 Skylogic Research, LLC together with BZ Media LLC, today released “Drones in the Channel: 2016 Market Report,” a research report examining drone sales and distribution channels in North America.  The report offers fresh insights on the major brands and the growing role that distribution and reseller businesses play in the sale of consumer and commercial drones. The report is available for purchase here.

It provides a comprehensive view of topics like:

  • U. S. market size for all drones and growth projections by segment
  • the major drone distributors (who they are, what they carry, how many, major customers, customers by industry segment)

The study also reports data collected from the survey of drone buyers and provides insight on:

  • where they purchase their drones (e.g., online or in a store)?
  • the intended drone use—for hobby or racing or photography purposes, or for their employer?
  • the most popular drone brands by price point?

“We are excited to offer insights on the varied and growing reseller distribution channels in the drone industry,” said Colin Snow, CEO and Founder of Skylogic Research. “As the drone industry grows and evolves, it’s important for all to identify and understand who the major brands are and what opportunities and relationships are in the supply chain,” he added.

“Drone distribution is in the heady ‘Wild West’ phase with many channel players donning multiple hats as the market settles into stratified price points and uses for drones. We were excited to work with Skylogic Research on this first extensive study of the drone dealer channel and have Colin Snow present the results earlier this month at the first Drone Dealer Expo in Orlando,” said Ted Bahr, President & CEO of BZ Media.
