As commercial cannabis cultivators try to keep up with intense market demand, efficient business solutions are being sought out in the form of drone technology. In fact, the cannabis industry and the drone market are melding into a collaboration made in heaven. Last year, U.S. sales of consumer drones surpassed $1.25 billion. With U.S. drone statistics revealing that approximately 15% of Americans have flown a drone, it’s not surprising that the number of certified U.S. drone pilots is expected to top $422,000 this year. Analysts at Statista predict that the market size for drones in smart agriculture will soar from $1.2 billion in 2019 to $4.8 billion by 2024. These innovative solutions are capturing the attention of cannabis cultivators that manage both indoor and outdoor farms. The results? More efficient business operations, reduced carbon footprints, and healthier yields. When drones are adopted in agriculture, cannabis farmers can discover more efficient ways to collect data and conduct specific tasks. According to Grand View Research, the global cannabis cultivation market size was valued at USD $123.9 billion in 2019. Between the years 2020 and 2027, this segment of the cannabis market is anticipated to inflate at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.3%.
