The Drone Market In Europe In 2018.

The drone market in Europe in 2018.

Drone News

An interesting article we came across today in commercial UAV news about the drone market in Europe in 2018.

The article states that Media & entertainment will remain the biggest market for the next few years, but it will be far outpaced in growth by other sectors. Here at we see particularly interest  for construction, building inspection, public safety and oil & gas related uses of drone technology.

The article also says  that Demand is dominated by three EU countries: France, Germany and the UK. This is not surprising given that they are also the largest three economies in the EU. The UK has been an early adopter of drones in public safety, and the article predicts wider rollout in 2018. France has been more diverse in its usage of drones, but particularly for inspection and construction. Germany is a similar picture as France, but with its high penetration of renewable energy, inspection of solar and wind farms is expected to present an attractive segment also.
