  2. 2. Lea Bienaime, spokesperson for French drone manufacturer Dronevolt, indicated in 2018 that there could be huge potential for the commercial drone market in African nations. The continent’s vast, open spaces offer exciting opportunities, not only in terms of commercial drone technologies, but in using digitisation to help grow the African economy. Drone technologies are already being implemented on African construction sites. In South Africa, The Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development has implemented drone technology to monitor progress on the Phillip Moyo Community Health Centre construction project.

  3. 3. Growing Demand for UAVs in African Construction Marius Hough, Dronezone’s Director of Operations in South Africa, has indicated that Africa can benefit from Western technology in a big way. Drone technology helps construction companies rise to the top, particularly in developing economies, where the construction market holds vast opportunities. From carrying out security patrols and monitoring progress to delivering small, key items on site, drones help construction companies minimise the time and cost involved in a project, while at the same time protecting the safety of its contractors and employees. There remains a lack of infrastructure in some African countries. By leveraging digital technologies, African construction companies can gain huge competitive advantages over their rivals, enabling nations to start developing ‘smart’ buildings and infrastructure.
