Among the key insights of this year's survey are:

* It remains true that most drone companies around the world have under 50 employees. Yet an intriguing facet of this year’s survey is the representation of over 45 companies that boast more than 5,000 employees

* This year, Mapping & Survey claims a commanding 37% share among Business-Internal-Service (BIS) companies and a 33% share among Drone Service Providers (DSPs)

* In 2023, the optimism is back but at a much healthier and less extreme level than after 2021

* Regulation represents both the biggest challenge and the biggest growth factor
