DRONE SERVICES

The enterprise appeal for drone services tackles multiple billion-dollar sectors. Within construction, precision agriculture, oil & gas, and more, drones pose massive increases in efficiency as well as decreases in costs. There will be a new wave of private and public players entering the drone services segment over the next 2–4 years, and we are already seeing that ramp up, speaking with an average of 1 new drone services company per week over the past few months.

Analysts are predicting that demand will skyrocket. The commercial drone market could increase from around $5.2 billion last year to $27.1 billion by 2021, according to Wintergreen Research, a U.S.-based firm that studies different technology sectors.

That rapid growth has attracted the likes of digital camera maker GoPro, which says it plans to release a drone with undisclosed "revolutionary features"
