Rounding off another fiscal year, we bring you the key drone investments figures from 2019. Should you want to know more, please check out our publication:

“2019 was a record-breaking year in many ways. The total yearly investment value not only broke last year’s record but also surpassed the billion mark, as $1.2 billion was invested into the drone industry in 2019. As our graphic shows, venture capital (VC) investments once again made up a large portion of this sum. And indeed VC deals also broke the record in 2019, with $830 million invested, up from $679 million in 2018. Finally, eleven years since our first recorded drone industry investment, we can now say that a whopping $4.443 billion has been invested into the drone market.

2020 Outlook: As the market continues to grow, we expect 2020 to be yet another record-breaking year, with both overall and VC deals reaching new highs. We also expect to see the continued trend not the number of investment deals growing drastically but the value of each investment instead.”
