Drone deliveries happening no time soon
Monday February 13 2017
Retailer plans for drone deliveries are still a way off coming to true fruition, according to analysts Gartner
The organisation expects delivery drones to make up less than 1% of the commercial drone market by 2020.
It cites reasons such as logistical issues and return on investment for drone deliveries being unproven for why the process is so slow going.
Gartner senior research analyst, Gerald Van Hoy, said: "We expect that delivery drones will begin finding a niche in business-to-business applications first, particularly for internal services within one company where logistics will not be such a big factor."
