Remember how in childhood, many of us loved to fly a kite into the sky? A lot of time has passed, technologies do not stand still, and now a quadcopter can already be launched into the sky. Not only is it capable of climbing to unrealistic heights, but it is also equipped with a camera for shooting ultra-high-definition videos! Check five of the most successful drone manufacturing companies in the article below.
Production and the Main Segments of Drone Manufacturing
In the last decade, drones have firmly become part of the weapons of most armies in the world. At the moment, the army of air combat robots is not only being strengthened but also constantly being upgraded. Currently, China produces more than 80% of the world’s civilian drones, with most of them produced by one company – DJI. Implementation of drone technologies in marketing activities allows enterprises to increase conversion, the number of visitors to the website, increase the image of both the enterprise itself and its products, and increase sales. This is facilitated by animated or video clips, sharing photos (images), and using social networks and bloggers.
There are different segments in the drone market with different sets of requirements from buyers. Segments include the following:
- Toy drones or quadcopters for beginners.
- Quadcopters for different types of filming.
The main task of manufacturing drones today is data collection in the broadest sense of the word. The data, in the simplest case, are ordinary photographs taken from angles inaccessible from the ground, photographs with exact coordinates for geographical reference or calculations, pictures taken by a thermal imager to obtain a temperature distribution map, as well as point clouds with plan and elevation coordinates for building digital models terrain or objects.
