Canada: Opportunities in Canada's Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Market

The emergence of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, is a game-changing technology impacting almost every industry imaginable worldwide. The United States, Canada, and a handful of other countries are forging ahead in developing cutting edge products and solutions to meet the growing UAV demand for real-time mapping, crop monitoring, environmental research, and a myriad of other military, commercial, and civil tasks. Canada’s rank as the fifth largest aerospace industry in the world puts it in an advantageous position to become an important player in the global UAV industry, which is growing at an exponential rate. In fact, Canada is already proving itself to be in the leading pack of UAV development, testing and usage mainly due to the following factors: Canada’s well established aerospace industry is investing in growing its UAV market, prominent UAV research and development centers exist across the country, and Canada has a regulatory advantage over the U.S. and most countries by allowing the use of UAVs for commercial and civil purposes. The Canadian UAV market offers numerous business opportunities for U.S. suppliers and manufacturers of drone products, services, solutions, parts and components.
