The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced the debut of the Unmanned Systems Marketplace at the 2015 International CES. That is right, Drones go mainstream at the CES 2015. The 2015 CES is scheduled to run January 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas.
The Unmanned Systems Marketplace highlights the technology in drones, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and other unmanned systems controlled by onboard computers or remotely from the ground. In its first year at the CES, the Unmanned Systems Marketplace is expected to cover 6,500 net square feet of exhibit space with room for about 16 high-end commercial and consumer UAV technology companies.
According to CEA research, the global market for consumer drones will approach $130 million in revenue in 2015, increasing by 55% from 2014, with unit sales of consumer drones expected to reach 400,000. The revenue from drone sales is expected to easily exceed $1 billion in just five years.
