Drones: high-profile and niche

TMT Predictions 2015

Deloitte predicts that in 2015, the active base of non-military drones costing $200 or more should exceed one million units for the first time.

Executive summary

Deloitte predicts that in 2015, the active base of non-military drones costing $200 or more should exceed one million units for the first time. We expect sales of non-military drones (also known as unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs), to be about 300,000 units in 2015, with the majority being bought by consumers or prosumers. We expect total industry revenues to be $200-$400 million dollars in 2015 (equivalent to the list price of a single, mid-sized passenger jet). In short, while we believe that UAVs have a tremendous range of applications, particularly for enterprise and government, we are not foreseeing a breakthrough year for drones in 2015.
