Global Commercial Drones Market 2018: Numerous Industries to be Transformed by Unmanned Flight - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 24, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 24, 2018--The “Commercial Drones: Numerous industries to be transformed by unmanned flight” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Once the preserve of massive military budgets, drones are now making significant strides in commercial industry, initiating substantial efficiency gains. Now drone technology has reached commercial relevance, and much more is predicted to follow.

A future as a vital part of infrastructure beckons, not just in maintenance but also in mobile infrastructure in isolated areas of the world. Regulations allowing, drones are entering a period of development during which many industries - most notably construction and agriculture - will very quickly look very different.

Key Highlights

Major computer companies are getting involved, realizing the lucrative opportunities about to become commonplace. Dubbed Mission Control Software’, an Intel designed system claims the capacity to handle flight planning and management, beaming back data. Now future infrastructure is beginning to be influenced by drones. Many industry insiders have theorized over the potential use of drones in modern society, especially those in advanced economies. Yet the ideas to have been imagined have so often been predicated upon a view of the world which includes full support from the authorities. Despite being worth trillions of dollars, the global construction industry is beset by problems staying on budget and completing work on time. Modern drones offer the prospect of collecting information that would have taken a human team a prolonged period to gather, but also in much greater detail than is often possible using alternative means.

Scope
