How will the Networking and Communications Sector incorporate Drones?

Drone technology has the potential to increase UK GDP by £42 billion by 2030, according to new research from PwC.

The research estimates there will be more than 76,000 drones in use across UK skies by 2030. More than a third of these could be utilised by the public sector (including in areas such as defence, health and education).

There are significant opportunities for economic gains across all sectors, but the GDP uplift generated by drones is forecast to have a considerable impact on the public sector with an increase of 2.3%, amounting to around £11.4bn.

During last year's Autumn Statement, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced an extra £1.7 billion NHS funding to support and modernise the delivery of frontline care, plus an extra £1 billion over four years for new primary care infrastructure to make healthcare services more accessible. However, to access this funding, hospitals must provide assured plans showing how they will be more efficient and sustainable in the year ahead and deliver their commitment to a paperless NHS by 2018.

The perception of the data network has changed. With the advent of mobility, the increasing emphasis on analytics, and the explosion of the application economy, the network is at last beginning to be valued as a strategic business asset within the enterprise.
