Executive summary

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) have been used for decades. Adoption of UASs is poised to grow dramatically as technology improvements make drones more functional and affordable. While today’s UASs are widely used by militaries, growth in the future will rely more on commercial and hobbyist applications.

The overall market for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) is expected to increase largely due to higher military spending. The global UAV market is expected to strengthen in 2015 onwards and in 2016, the growth will be more intense and the market will expand to new horizons. However, the potential growth of this technology lies in its increasing adoption for commercial purposes. Commercial sector will be more rewarding to pay attention to in the next few years and this will increase the appetite of the market. Primarily in testing phase, UASs have been deployed across a number of industries for commercial applications in an effort to increase productivity in a safe and cost effective manner. The potential future applications for commercial UAS usage range from the very complex such as Amazon Inc.’s proposal to deliver packages directly to customers, to monitoring applications (pipelines, wildlife, safety and rescue) that are already feasible with existing technologies.
