The Need for a Global Strategy to Decrease Drone Industry Fragility
Date & Time

To fulfill the global demand for autonomous tech while mitigating geopolitical and supply chain challenges, the drone and robotics industry needs to embrace a global strategy for innovation and mass production. 

All around the world,  we see an increasing need for autonomous technologies, but only a few countries are well positioned to fulfill that demand from a standpoint of both innovation and mass production. We will analyze a handful of markets and the unique forces driving or hindering drone and robotics adoption. We will also do a deep dive into the specific market conditions of Japan, which has seen a unique convergence of factors as the driving force for autonomous technology development. Japan has a tremendous wealth of manufacturing expertise, a plethora of underutilized suppliers, and a weakening currency that makes it increasingly well-positioned to be a global exporter of autonomous technology.
