One of the most challenging aspects of sizing the agricultural drones market was objectively encompass the regulatory scenario across several countries. The data engineering itself comes with the backing of multi-tiered scenario based analysis. Three levels of adoption were considered and the most balanced and neutral perspective has been employed as the base for the data model. This enables the research to be a straight-up non-biased evaluation. The standard top-down and bottom-up methodologies were followed to build more robustness to the market estimates. With STP analysis being the base for the top down approach, the addressable and available market estimates were identified from top-level data points.

The bottom up approach was used to qualitatively assess large volumes of customer groups (farmers, farm managers, agronomists and crop consultants) that represent the target market segment, across different geographies. These customer groups act like the sample of the overall market and were employed to identify buying behavior and initial customers. A custom data layer was designed and embedded along with the bottom-up approach towards verifying and authenticating buyer decisions and preferences from a number perspective as well. These quantitative validations form the backbone of customer intelligence, by supporting our derived intelligence on the buyer market and customer preferences.

Data gathering for both the approaches was achieved through a rigorous period of information gathering from both secondary and primary sources over the last year. Information collected through several interviews with key industry participants, channel players, regulators, farmers and agronomists were analyzed and engineered to understand buying, spending, demand and supply patterns. These data sets were further interpreted to see how it is applicable across the value chain through market-data associations. Post this, the market engineered data was applied with multiple check points to validate consistencies, manage error samples and reduce variances. The report on the agricultural drones market is built on a strong and dependable data foundation, passing multiple levels of data validations and checkpoints.
