Drone Adoption Drives Big Data Services

The increasing adoption of drones in commercial sectors is leading to a revolution in big data cloud services. Launching a drone to capture images is the preliminary step in the drone information acquisition process. The captured images then require correction, calibration, processing, storage, and efficient evaluation.

The global drone data service market is expected to reach $8.15 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growth can be attributed to the growing usage of information acquired by drones in operational and big data analytics. The increasing need for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery analysis is presumed to impact the global drone imagery processing software industry positively and add a new horizon in imagery storage technologies.

The increasing need to evaluate imagery is a key factor driving the adoption of drone imagery software and cloud-based applications, which possess the ability to upload, share, store, and process aerial images. Moreover, there has been a steep increase in the use of cloud-based in-memory computing platform among businesses as it accelerates analytics, processes, and predictive capabilities. By gathering information on a larger scale, service providers can now process unprecedented levels of detailed information and turn it into actionable information.

The industry requires significant improvements in various processes, such as increased fusion of data, compression, encryption, and on-board processing, as the software to perform analytics directly from imagery is still in the research phase. Big data generated by drones is of vital importance in various sectors, including monitoring construction activities. North America is presumed to emerge as the dominant region while Asia Pacific is expected to witness unprecedented growth during the forecast period.

Throughout the next several years, construction companies are expected to harness the capabilities of aerial surveillance through drones on a large scale, as these industries have not yet explored the benefits of imagery optimally.
