AsiaIndustrial NetNews: Speaking of drones, many people will think of emerging high-tech. In fact, in the first two years, drones have really been in the limelight, and the industry is booming, attracting a lot of capital and start-ups. However, with the loss of consumer freshness and the lack of market growth stars, drone companies are facing a major test, and Skye is one of them.
Recently, it is reported that Skye Intelligent owes more than 30 employees the salary, involving an amount of more than 2 million yuan. It is suspected that it has stopped operating, but it has not been confirmed whether it has closed down.
Founded in February 2015, Skye Intelligence is a drone start-up company targeting the consumer market. The fall of Skye is not surprising. Before it, domestic and foreign companies such as Guoyihang and GoPro failed in the field of drones.
Even if it is as strong as DJI and takes the lead in the field of drones, it is still in danger. The reason for this is that the growth of the consumer-level market is weak, while the enterprise-level market has not yet been cultivated, resulting in a dilemma.
After many well-known drone companies broke out various problems one after another, the drone industry was questioned for a while. Many believed that there was a large number of pseudo-demands in the drone market, and the industry prospect was not as good as imagined.
More worryingly, the issue of safe flying is pushing the drone industry into the abyss. If we continue to allow development without strengthening supervision, the drone industry will surely fall into policy risks. How to control drones flying in the air will be the key to future development.
Various signs show that the future prospects of the drone industry are not optimistic, and it is urgent to shift from the C-end market to the B-end market. Only with the rapid growth of the enterprise market can the drone industry experience growth again. Compared with the consumer market, the enterprise market is the future of the drone industry.
In recent years, the application scope of UAVs has been continuously expanded, from agriculture, forestry and plant protection to environmental monitoring, from disaster relief to emergency command, from electric cruise to earthquake investigation, the role of UAVs has become more and more obvious.
With the continuous improvement of drone technology and battery life, the needs of the enterprise market will also continue to be released. According to the “China UAV Industry Market Demand Forecast and Investment Strategic Planning Analysis Report”, in 2013, the total market demand for civil UAVs in my country was 50 million US dollars, and it is expected that by 2022, the total market demand will increase to 280 million US dollars. , the potential is huge.

In general, with the gradual cooling of consumer drones, civilian drones will continue to rise and enter a high-speed development channel. The enterprise-level UAV market still has great potential to be tapped. In the future, it can expand more markets with miniaturization and low energy consumption to meet the needs of more scenarios.
