Drone Regulation Report 2020
ABOUT THE REPORT
This DRONEII Report provides the most comprehensive outline, breakdown and analysis of global drone regulations. It is based on months of research and analysis by our team and our Drone Readiness Index (DRI), a proprietary analytical framework for comparing national drone regulations which was built based on years of experience in the commercial drone industry and an intimate understanding of the regulatory environment.
The 107-page Drone Regulation Report introduces the bureaucratic infrastructure behind drone regulations, first in Chapter 1 outlining how drone regulations are made what sorts of challenges drone regulators face. It then delves deeper into European and international drone regulations in Chapter 2 by explaining how EASA and other EU regulatory bodies work in conjunction with national regulations. Further, the report discusses international drone standards and the various organisations in this space as well as their progress. The flagship component of the report is the Drone Readiness Index (DRI) outlined in Chapter 3 which ranks countries according to the six key indicators: applicability, operational scope, human resources, administrative infrastructure, social acceptance and airspace integration. In addition to this, each of the thirty countries’ national drone regulations are analysed individually in detail in Chapter 4.
Next, in Chapter 5 government drone programs, and specifically national UTM programs from across the globe are discussed and analyzed. In Chapter 6, this report once again gives a view from the industry by providing the insights DRONEII has gathered through the Global Drone Industry Barometer Survey 2020. Finally, Chapter 7 providers readers with the outlook by laying out what key regulatory changes lay ahead and how they will affect different parts of the industry. Ultimately, this report helps companies make strategic business development decisions based on regulatory developments and forecasts, for example, for or against market entry or product expansion. Further, it is a great tool for current and potential investors in the drone industry.
