Global Commercial UAS Agricultural Services Market

Global Commercial UAS Agricultural Services Market

Over the next several decades, the global population is expected to grow rapidly. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations expects the global population by 2050 to require a 70% increase in food production while arable land is expected to increase by less than 5%. One of the ways to offset this disparity will be to increase per-acre crop yields. Technological innovations have led to many advances in the farming industry, creating a growing acceptance of precision agriculture, which has developed over the past several years as inexpensive, time-saving technologies have come to market. Instead of having to inspect crops by walking through them, farmers and crop scouts have turned to satellite imaging to evaluate crop health. Farmers are also adopting technologies such as automated farm equipment and ground-based sensors into their operations. Another tool useful is the unmanned aerial system (UAS), or drone, which can be fitted with many types of sensors to collect various data sets for agricultural analysis. This research service provides an assessment of the market for UAS agricultural services globally.
