Industries and business segments have changed, and with them, so have their jobs. The drone industry has followed this evolution closely. In recent years, these unmanned aerial vehicles have been of great benefit to multiple sectors, such as public safety, structures and infrastructure, energy, agriculture and media.
Still, new opportunities continue to emerge, from business forms around the world. The drone services market is estimated to be worth €3.7 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach €53.8 billion by 2025.
For this period, this corresponds to a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 55.9%. The factors expected to drive this growth are related to the successive use of drone services for industry-specific solutions, the improvisation of the regulatory structure and the increased need for qualitative data in other areas. A report by consultancy Oliver Wyman states that by 2050 the drone market will account for €15 billion a year in the European Union alone. It also indicates that by then it could account for 10% of the EU aviation market. The report also indicates a potential creation of 150,000 jobs.
In short, more than enough reasons for aspiring pilots to have the tools they need to succeed by making a difference.
