India’s drone market

Vipul Singh writes for the Financial Express:

“A FICCI and EY report noted that the Indian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAS) market will touch $885.7 million by 2021, when the global market size will be $21.47 billion. This will create jobs. Drone-related careers can open up for pilots, UAV operators, engineers, and data processing and analysis experts. Potential positions range from full-time to contract-based work, even internships across many industries.

A lot of jobs will also be created as drones need to be manufactured, serviced, repaired and operated. And then there is a growing demand for skills that need to build algorithms to spot patterns in photographs, intelligent routing and collision avoidance systems. The other area is precision agriculture and pesticide spraying, using drones.
