Africa, the promised land for commercial drones

Africa will never have enough means to develop traditional mobility infrastructures

It starts with the conviction that Africa will never have enough means to develop traditional mobility infrastructures as we know in the Western world, indeed, the annual deficit in terms of public spending on infrastructure amounts to $93 billion (African Development Bank, 2015) and continues to grow. The wide geographic space transforms a mere trip into a long-distance journey, some routes are simply non-existent and the weather condition often traps the vehicle's wheels in dense and dim mud.

To conclude,

An economic paradox is taking hold in Africa. A real need at the operation level has been identified, but financing does not seem to be there yet. Companies in the sector are financing themselves through commercial sales, demonstrating the interest of the UAV on the continent. Nevertheless, a development on a larger scale could place Africa as a leader in the UAV market.
