      Hi Michael,

      Thanks, that’s very useful. The first findings of the UK challenge have also just been published.

    Burhan, the market size for commercial drone services referenced here appears to be extremely exaggerated.

    We know that DJI is the largest provider of Drones for the commercial sector (reputedly taking over 70% of the hardware sales). They are in the process of raising money and possibly going public so we are finally getting some real number of revenue and was reported at $2.8B in 2017

    While the Commercial Drone Services market will be disruptive, there has just been too much hype with the numbers. We tried to unpack what’s really happening with publicly available numbers and saw a different picture – high potential but slower adoption.

    What I am missing in the article is any mention of sound pollution. Cars/trucks are getting more silent, especially with the move to electric motors. The blades on current drones produce a loud and annoying hum, even when they only support a small payload.
