Palm Beach, FL – May 18, 2021 – Companies operating in the logistics & transportation, retail, agriculture, and healthcare sectors are making efforts to integrate drone delivery into their business models for the smooth and successful execution of same-day delivery of packages. In addition, technological advancements in drone technologies help in carrying out drone package delivery operations autonomously and safely, thereby contributing to their increased adoption in the drone delivery ecosystem. Growing demand for fast delivery, rising amendments in regulatory frameworks to encourage drone package delivery, and increasing demand for lowering carbon emission are some of the factors fueling the growth of the market. A recent report from MarketsAndMarkets said that the drone package delivery market is projected to grow from USD 528 million in 2020 to USD 39,013 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 53.8% from 2020 to 2030. The report said: “The demand for faster delivery of packages is increasing, with customers willing to pay extra for same-day delivery. With innovation in cargo transportation and increasing investments from logistics & transportation companies, the use of delivery drones in e-commerce, quick service restaurants, convenience stores, and the healthcare sector, among others, is increasing. According to Invesp (US), as of 2018, approximately 51% of the global online retail shoppers preferred fast delivery/same-day delivery over long duration deliveries. Invesp also forecasts that, by 2021, the total number of online shoppers preferring faster delivery over long duration deliveries would be more than 65% globally. These factors have led to the increased adoption of aerial delivery drones in the global e-commerce industry. Retailers are trying to lower their delivery lead times and enhance the flexibility and speed of deliveries by maintaining stock-keeping units (SKUs) assisted by drones. Aerial delivery drones are expected to help increase the delivery speed of products in crowded megacities.” Active stocks in the markets this week include Bantec, Inc. (OTCPK: BANT), Draganfly Inc.

MarketsAndMarkets continued: “The use of drones for the delivery of packages is expected to offer growth opportunities for various stakeholders of the drone package delivery ecosystem, such as drone manufacturers, drone service providers, drone infrastructure providers, and drone as a software service provider, among others… These companies are expected to witness significant growth in the coming years owing to the significant investments in drone technologies across the globe.”
