While drones have yet to revolutionize delivery services, they are making a bigger impact than you might think.

Drones

Jeff Bezos tantalized the world almost 10 years ago with the idea of door-to-door drone delivery services. The commercial drone industry has grown rapidly since—a $27.4 billion drone market today is expected to more than double by 2026.

In fact, they’ve been hard at work in many sectors, including the warehouse logistics industry.

Figure 1:The $27.4 billion drone market today is expected to more than double to approximately $60 billion by 2026 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.3%.

Figure 2: One industry that has lagged others, yet is forecasted to grow the fastest in the near term: the delivery and logistics segment. It’s expected to experience a CAGR of 60% from 2021 to 2028.

Figure 3:In a recent Cushman & Wakefield survey of tenant preferences, it’s clear that big-box tenants—500,000+ square feet— prefer larger clear heights (36’ or higher).

Figure 4:Material Handling Exchange estimates that it would take approximately 80 people with handheld scanners and forklifts three days to complete a typical stock count for an average size uniform warehouse. One drone can complete the same job in two days, on its own and without forklifts.
