Visiongain Report: Top UAV Makers Eye Specialties to Diffuse Competition

droneBusiness information provider Visiongain has unveiled its list of top 20 unmanned aerial vehicles and systems manufacturers in the world.

The report predicts the specialties companies will choose in the field and how new players will try to stake a claim on a market that could undergo key structural changes amid an emergent commercial UAVs segment, Visiongain said Monday.

“Although increasingly competitive, the global UAV market is currently highly consolidated with a few leading companies dominating global sales,” the London-based analysis firm said.

“However, incumbent positions are increasingly under threat from new and existing competitors offering a range of cost-effective UAV capabilities and innovative technologies,” it added.

The “Top 20 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles/Systems Companies 2014: Growth Prospects in Military, Commercial and Law Enforcement Markets” report also assesses and analyzes technological trends of the market for 2014 and includes interviews of AeroVironment, Kaman Aerospace/Lockheed Martin and Textron executives.
