This post analyzes the latest commercial drone forecasts and debunks some prevalent myths and hype.
Have you noticed the growing number of market forecasts for the commercial drones industry? I have. Not a week goes by that a new one doesn’t hit my radar. I’m currently tracking about 15. Each in one way or another delivers growth projections for the drone or unmanned aerial system (UAS) sector that are nothing short of phenomenal. But are they, really?
In this post, I’m going to share three secrets to help you understand forecasts better, unpack the hype and diversity of market reports, and hopefully leave you skilled enough to ‘cry foul’ when you see a new report that is, well, questionable. At the end, I’ll give you my personal take on the most popular forecast reports.
