"Operators with ambitions in the cellular drones market will need to invest in order to develop their networks and build new competencies if they are to monetise the opportunity."


Cellular connectivity will be a key enabler of beyond visual line of sight drone deployments, but the cellular drones market is immature and subject to regulatory and technical hurdles. Operators with ambitions in the drone sector must work with players in the aviation industry to ensure that their cellular networks can support air-based connectivity, and should consider which roles they will play in the value chain.

This report provides:

  • an overview of the roles that operators can play in the cellular drones market
  • an analysis of the technical, regulatory and commercial challenges that operators face in the cellular drones market
  • recommendations for operators on the investments and partnerships required to meet these challenges.
