New Market Report on Civil Drone Operations

An international survey on the drone market sector has just been published. Thank you to Members for contributing to this world-wide survey, conducted by UVS International. The survey had inputs from 1004 drone operators from 66 countries.  The market report identifies & classifies 31 drone market sectors and 25 drone flight mission purposes, and organizes them in order of importance [today & in the short term (1-2 years)].

Back in July 2017, ARPAS-UK encouraged its Members to take part in the survey; thank you for doing so, thereby helping to create this realistic vision and near-future of the UAV market.
