A significant milestone for the drone industry
Drones are increasingly being used in a broad range of activities. As they become smaller, faster, and more numerous, questions have started to emerge over the increasing proliferation of commercial drones and the issues this generates to civilian safety.
A report published in April 2018 by PWC, estimated that the aerial drone industry alone (excluding surface, underwater and space) would contribute £42 billion to UK GDP and create 628,000 jobs by 2030. In addition, a 2018 market report estimates that the anti-drone market will grow to almost $1.85bn by 2024.
Indeed, drone legislation has been scarce and generally differs from country to country. General laws relating to privacy, aviation, data protection and are applicable to drones, but it could be questioned whether they provide sufficient safeguards.
Fortunately, the long-awaited first-ever world drone Standards are being released by the International Standards Organisation (ISO). They will also create a catalyst for the expansion of one of the key industries that will determine the future global performance of UK plc.
