Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), can be remotely operated from a stationary position manually or by pre-programming the path of its flight which operate on energy source like battery. Dronesmainly find application in many end-user industries that includeagriculture, media & entertainment, government, construction, and energy. For instance, in media & entertainment industry it is used to shoot aerial shots for films and photographs, which are nearly impossible to achieve in terms of height and clarity. Similarly, government has started using drones for security and surveillance in busy places like temples, processions, and other social gatherings for the safety of the people and to prevent chaos. Drones have already started impacting the construction industry and these impacts will be long-lasting and positive in future. Nowadays, construction processes are being digitalized by 3D-modeling and progress monitoring by capturing high resolution images of the site by drone. The customer can have a detailed view of the constructed places right form the time of site survey till the completion of the project.


In the construction industry, a vast area and several aspects like uneven ground or rocky obstacles are to be covered in the surveillance of pre-construction process. Also, at the time of actual construction process the development in construction site as well as movements of the workers need to be observed. It becomes easy using a drone to keep an eye on these movements. Drones also facilitate better site monitoring, allowing calculation of inventory, measuring dimensions of roads and structures, interpreting images and maps for better communication. Apart from producing high definition images, drones can be used to capture infrared images, night vision images, thermal censored images, and geological locations. The footage captured is used to develop 3D models of the construction site allowing for better iteration, more accurate bids, and high feasibility during pre-construction process. Fixed wing type are the drones resembling aircrafts, whereas, rotary blade drones have rotating blades on their wings. Both these types of drones have their own advantages and drawbacks. Hence, a specific type of drone is preferred for a certain specified application. 

The reduction in surveillance time of the land or site is the most significant characteristic of the drones in the construction industry. On-site management, improved security of the construction site, accuracy in surveillance, and filming & photography are some of the applications of the drone. Also, inspection of the site by using different characteristics of the drone like ability to capture thermal images, infrared images, and geological locations are the driving factors of the construction drone market. But all the countries have implemented certain laws regarding the size of the drone, maximum height allowed to fly the drone, restriction to fly the drone over and around various sensitive areas, and certification to fly the drone. This can restrict the growth of the drone market. However, different governments have started being lenient on implying rules and regulations on flying of drone owing to the increase in applications of drones in the construction industry. This boosts the presence of construction companies in countries like U.S., UK, UAE, China, India, and Japan to invest in drones working for construction and real estate industries. Thus, leading to rapid   increase in dependency on the drones in the construction  industry. Manufacturers are focusing on introducing long lasting batteries and extended range of connectivity in the construction drones. In addition, newly developed cost effective drones carrying highly advanced technology is expected to drive the construction drone market 

The global construction drone market is segmented into blade type, application, and region. By blade type, it is bifurcatedas fixed wings drones and rotary blade drones. By application, it is differentiated by surveying land, infrastructure inspection, security & surveillance, transportation, and filming & photography. By end user, it is categorized into residential, commercial and industrial. By region, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
