There is a lot of talk about drones and their prominence in our future. We keep hearing about how they are used now and how they could be used in the future. You’ve even heard it here on this drone blog. But what does all this talk really mean? What is the impact on our economy. Get this, the above linked article predicts the use and advances in drones will be worth $127 billion to the world economy. While the article talks about the specific industries that will benefit, my big take away is that the total value is $127 billion. That is huge! This just goes to show how important it is for all of us, all the associated industries and all of the governments to work out of the logistical and regulatory challenges. It is worth the effort, to the tune of billions. Failure to do so will cause us to leave a lot of benefits “on the table”. I’m hopeful we can see this predicted benefit come true … and more.
What about your business or industry? Have you thought about what drones can do for you? Would their use provide you a strategic or competitive advantage? Their true use and benefit is left up to our imaginations.
