A rocketing UAV market!

A booming sector

The revolution of non-military UAV has started. The fast growing use of UAV meets ever increasing needs and applications and their economic potential is immense: it is anticipated that the global market shall develop from $942 million dollars today to $2.3 in 2023 according to analysts.

An almost unlimited development potential

With the boom of non-military use, professional UAV should meet functions carried out until now by satellites, aircrafts or helicopters: supervision of industrial plants, networks and civil engineering buildings, topographical plans of mines and quarries, surveillance of crops, etc. Recreational UAV attract more and more enthusiasts and constantly benefit from technological progress in terms of maneuverability or miniaturization.

France, a European leader

Today, Europe has come at the forefront of the UAV market and France is a leader thanks to its recognized know-how in aeronautics. It also acts as a forerunner in terms of legislation in order to promote the rapid growth of a UAV market: it is, as of today, the only country which formally authorizes out of sight long distance flights.

From R&D to mass-production: the age of industrialization – How should
SMB, purchasers and players approach and anticipate this new development phase?

Digital advantage
– If UAV is considered like a means rather than an end, the added value of the industry lies in data processing: automated recognition, data sorting, output restitution, etc.

Safety: regulation issues raised by UAV : France implemented a flexible framework which allows for future evolution in the field. What about other countries?

Practical applications of professional UAV – Fight against cable theft or inspection of civil engineering structures in the case of SNCF, parcel delivery by La Poste, water stress and crop diseases supervision, etc. Three cases – three accounts.


From military to non-military: duplication of the Internet model? – Just like it was the case with the Internet network, UAV derive from a military technology that later developed in the non-military sector where start-up spirit prevails. Can the Internet model predict the future of the sector? Has the merger race started yet? Who will be the champions of tomorrow?

UAV: new emperor in the air? – Towards radical developments in the concept of helicopters or aircrafts.
Choose the right recreational UAV – Size, performance, maneuverability, etc. What criteria shall guide the user before he makes his final choice?

Obtaining a remote pilot licence – Practical and theoretical lessons, self-directed learning,
software training: what knowledge is required to pilot a non-military UAV? What training courses are proposed by the different service providers on the market?
