Unmanned Systems Soar at CES 2016

Marketplace triples in size and conference sessions drive skyrocketing enthusiasm for drones

ARLINGTON, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 16, 2015 — Reflecting the popularity and accelerated growth of commercial and consumer drones, a record number of manufacturers, service companies and other industry supporters are participating in the Unmanned Systems Marketplace at CES® 2016 January 6-9, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV. A record 27 exhibitors, up from 16 companies in 2015, will showcase the latest technologies that are revolutionizing the way we view, monitor and assist our world. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM – formerly the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® – CES 2016 is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology.

The Unmanned Systems Marketplace, presented by AUVSI and located in the LVCC, South Hall 2, covers more than 25,000 net square feet of exhibit space, a 200 percent increase over the 2015 CES. Exhibitors including DJI, Yuneec, Hobbico Inc. and Squadrone System will showcase drone and unmanned technologies and initiatives that deliver innovations related to sports, travel, real estate, search and rescue, law enforcement and disaster relief.

“Drones have taken off in the marketplace and now represent one of the fastest growing tech categories – globally and on the CES show floor,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association. “This is truly life-changing technology that will create new jobs, improve lives and transform the way we do business.”

CTA market research expects this to be a defining year for drones, with 400,000 units sold this holiday season and U.S. market revenue reaching nearly $105 million in 2015 – a 52 percent increase over 2014. And given the right regulatory environment, CTA sees the United States reaching one million unmanned aircraft systems flights per day within the next 20 years.

In addition to exhibits on the show floor, CES 2016 will feature four conference sessions focused on the accomplishments, trends and challenges of UAV technology, including:
