Drone technology could increase UK GDP by two per cent, or £42bn, by 2030, with more than a third of new drones to be utilised by the public sector, says new research from PwC.

The report estimates that there will be more than 76,000 drones in use across the UK by that time, with public sector areas like defence, health and education to be the most interested in incorporating drones into their activities.

PwC believes there are significant opportunities for economic gain across all sectors, but that the £42bn uplift would have the largest impact on British wholesale and retail trade, accounting for around £7.7bn of that number.
