Sta­tis­tics on types and uses

Australian Geographic - - Geo Buzz -

Be­cause drone sales and im­ports are un­reg­u­lated in Aus­tralia, it is dif­fi­cult to es­ti­mate the size of the lo­cal mar­ket for the de­vices.

Mil­i­tary drones still ac­count for the vast ma­jor­ity of all drones, but this is chang­ing, with the com­mer­cial drone mar­ket grow­ing four times faster.

US con­sul­tancy firm Gart­ner re­ported that al­most 3 mil­lion drones were pro­duced in 2017 – an in­crease of nearly 40 PER CENT on the pre­vi­ous year.
