  • This unique independent, 160+ page report of Renewable Market Watch™ analyzes global market for drones (UAVs) application in wind power industry regarding market dynamics, technology characteristics, industry structure, innovations and key industry vendors. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, Renewable Market Watch™ has identified a series of market trends that will impact this market over the coming decade.

    Wind power industry is developing with fast paces in the past decade and at the end of 2015 almost 307,000 wind turbines are operational at global level. This means more than 900,000 wind turbine blades are subject to physical wear out and need regular inspections throughout their lifespan. Drones (UAVs) could perform inspection work of wind turbines and wind blades quicker, safer and more cost effectively than traditional methods.
