Presentation from 2016 Commercial UAV Expo: MARKET SECTOR FORECAST FROM UAV INSIDER: WHICH ARE GROWING AND WHICH AREN’T PANNING OUT
Forecasts from a wide variety of research firms deliver growth projections for the commercial UAV market that are nothing short of phenomenal. But how real are they? And what’s the right number for the various market sectors? Is precision agriculture really the Holy Grail everyone predicted? And what about the process & power, infrastructure inspection, construction, and mining sectors? How fast will that grow? Will they onboard or use service providers? And how significant is the inability to fly beyond visual line-of-sight for these sectors? The good news is with the advent of the FAA’s Small UAS Rule and exception process for commercial operations in U.S. airspace we now have a better framework to project growth. In this session you’ll get an industry insider’s take along with statistics from survey-based research to understand the business impact and opportunities or challenges ahead.
