The commercial UAV market has become a new "blue ocean"

[the commercial UAV market has become a new "blue ocean"] the 20 should be adjusted in time. 18 the global UAV conference will be held in Chengdu from September 10 to 14. The global UAV conference brought together well-known entrepreneurs, experts and scholars from 49 countries in the field of UAV Flight Standards and management to jointly discuss the latest technological achievements applied in the UAV industry and the infinite possibility of building a UAV ecosystem. At present, many fields in China show the vigorous development momentum of "UAV + industry application". Correspondingly, the application standards of commercial UAV related industries also need to be formed. (communication information daily)

the 2018 global UAV conference, which has attracted much attention, was held in Chengdu from September 10 to 14. The global UAV conference brought together well-known entrepreneurs, experts and scholars from 49 countries in the field of UAV Flight Standards and management to jointly discuss the latest technological achievements applied in the UAV industry and the infinite possibility of building a UAV ecosystem. At present, many fields in China show the vigorous development momentum of "UAV + industry application". Correspondingly, the application standards of commercial UAV related industries also need to be formed

01

China's commercial UAV market is being optimistic

in recent years, with the continuous popularization of UAV technology, in the fields of energy, agriculture, construction, infrastructure and other industries, China has become an important market for the application of UAV industry, and at the same time, many domestic and foreign enterprises have entered this market. In the past five years, a large number of enterprises of different sizes began to set foot in the field of civil UAVs. In addition to professional companies such as Dajiang, Yihang and Jifei, there are also large enterprises such as, Google, Cainiao, Suning and SF

at present, consumer UAVs occupy more market share, but commercial UAVs are also being favored. The 2018 World UAV conference, which ended in June this year, predicts that the global commercial UAV industry will maintain rapid development in the next five years, and the total market value will reach $15billion by 2022, nearly 12 times that of 2016; Its shipment volume will exceed 620000, six times that of 2016

at present, the imagination space of commercial UAV application scenarios includes agricultural and forestry plant protection, power line patrol, oil pipeline patrol, land surveying and mapping, artificial rainfall, aerial remote sensing, rescue and disaster relief, geological survey, security patrol, logistics express, medical aid, marine remote sensing, etc

at present, many industries in China are strengthening the industrial application of UAVs. On September 8, the UAV application and control working committee of China Geographic Information Industry Association was established to carry out UAV standardization research and further expand the application scope of UAV industry. Recently, the Civil Aviation Administration of China also said that it encourages the promotion and application of new technologies such as big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, and supports the development of new business models such as drone cargo

02

China is still in the second tier of unmanned aerial vehicles

although China has successively developed many types of cutting-edge unmanned aerial vehicles in recent years, it is still in the second tier of unmanned aerial vehicle manufacturing from the perspective of the market share of unmanned aerial vehicle manufacturers in various countries around the world. At present, the major manufacturers of commercial UAVs in the world are concentrated in the United States, Israel and Europe, of which the United States accounts for 69%. Due to its cost-effective advantages, China's unmanned aerial vehicles account for about 10% of the world's share

the civil UAV industry is generally divided into two categories: one is the consumer UAV for the people, focusing on entertainment and appreciation. Such products have a large market, low manufacturing cost and low technical threshold, and almost become the "Red Sea" of the industry. Dajiang, a well-known UAV manufacturer in China, is a typical representative in this field, accounting for more than 70% of the global market share

the second category is industrial UAVs, which are mainly aimed at users in specific industries, such as surveying and mapping, forestry, water conservancy and other market segments. Products stress practicality, reliability and safety. Due to the emphasis on the need to have high technology, quality and reliability threshold requirements, industrial UAV has a long R & D investment cycle and high investment. The difficulty and investment in research and development determine that professional UAVs cannot be rapidly formed through capital operation, and it is also difficult to be "monopolized" by one or several enterprises, belonging to the "blue ocean" region

experts believe that in the field of industrial UAVs, UAV companies with advanced technology, high reliability and good professional services will have higher and higher added value. Drone companies that master the core technologies such as avionics system design, aircraft design and advanced production technology will become the "hot pastry" of the market

03

commercial UAV standards urgently need to be formed.

the application of commercial UAVs in mastertop 1300 series is inseparable from the industry. Domestically, many fields in China have shown the vigorous development momentum of "UAV + industrial application", and the logistics industry is an example

according to the statistics of the State Post Office of China, in 2017, China's express delivery business volume exceeded the 40 billion mark for the first time, reaching 40.06 billion, an increase of 28.07% year-on-year. However, the transportation underdeveloped areas in some provinces and cities still have the problems of delivery difficulties and high distribution costs. Therefore, choosing drone distribution can further expand network coverage, reduce costs and improve service timeliness

Liu Yanguang, general manager of the UAV industry center of JD x business unit, pointed out that at present, logistics UAVs are in a pattern led by the United States, actively deployed in Europe, and led by China. In 2017, jd.com took the lead in realizing the normalized operation of UAV distribution in the world. In the same year, SF large logistics UAV, Suning logistics UAV and UAV completed their first test flight or live delivery

in the process of enterprises promoting the growth of the industry, the application of industry standards is also accelerating. At present, 27 industry standards, 20 group standards and more than 40 standards are being promoted in the industry, and experts estimate that they can be supplied to the industry in the next oneortwo years. While the application of standards in the domestic industry is speeding up, the competition for international standards for unmanned aerial vehicles is also in full swing, and some countries have already begun to lay out international standardization

shuzhenjie, deputy chief engineer of the China Institute of Aeronautical Technology, pointed out that at present, countries have begun to compete for standards. In June this year, Japan, South Korea and Britain put forward relatively many standard proposals. Among them, Japan involves air control standards, South Korea puts forward identity recognition standards, and Britain puts forward relevant training standards. "In the standard competition of international UAVs, the domestic voice is relatively weak and needs to be strengthened."
