Strategy Analitics, a consulting firm of American origin, in its most recent report spoke about the great global growth that was taking place in business and consumer drones for the period between 2015 and 2022. Such are the figures that this consultancy shuffles that, according to the estimates, apparently and specifically by the sector of the market that has to do with the use of this technology for the delivery of goods, it is expected that grow during this 2016 by 248%.
To make this forecast, as they have from Strategy Analitics, both consumer drones and those that are and will be used by companies in the tasks of shipping packages and goods have been taken into account. On the other hand, they indicate that, despite how striking this figure is, the truth is that, despite the fact that 2016 has represented a turning point in the use of these technologies, the market will continue to grow progressively until 2022, thanks mainly to the arrival of new technologies, legislative reforms and increasing cost savings in operations carried out with drones.
Strategy Analitics estimates that the use of drones will grow progressively until 2022.
Personally, I have to admit that these figures that are being considered and have just been put on the table have caught my attention. Even so, it is also true that more and more companies are opting for the use of drones to carry out certain tasks. Focusing for just a moment on the delivery of parcels, we also find that, as in other market segments, there are more and more companies both nationally and internationally who invest capital and effort trying to be pioneers in the use of this technology.
