Summary

“Drone delivery” involves using drones (autonomous flying vehicles) to bring customers food or other objects. Among the first industries to recognize the delivery potential of drones (autonomous flying vehicles) were the retail and the consumer industry. However, regulatory issues, questions regarding its necessity, and the need for further technological developments keep drone delivery from a full take-off.

This report is part of GlobalData’s ForeSights series, which identifies weak signals and considers how the subtle trends of today might impact innovation tomorrow.


Scope
