What about drones?
The use of drones has increased over the last ten years among many players in the B2B market. As is the case for autonomous warehouse robots – known as automated guided vehicles (AGVs) – the B2B market for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, is growing exponentially and has great potential. It is still far from reaching full maturity, involving deliveries of groceries and prepared meals, building inspections, rescue services, etc. Application and development opportunities are almost infinite for the use of these flying robots. An increasing number of start-ups, major corporations, and professional drone pilots are taking advantage of these technologies to offer their services to all kinds of private individuals and businesses.
Innovation is key
While the market matured about five years ago on the B2C side, the B2B market remains
more open, with almost as many potential possibilities as there are industrial sectors. Drone
manufacturers are thus able to develop specific technologies that differentiate their products
and address the specific issues that their target markets encounter. When it comes to UAVs,
innovation is crucial: an innovative product tailored to a specific need is far more likely to
succeed than a generic drone. There is another essential element at the international level that could play a major role in the development of this market: UAV regulations are currently being defined. The conditions for certification of drones to fly over cities should be ready by 2025. This would speed up the development of a new area of application for drones which could one day help save lives, such as: transporting organs quickly and safely.
