RCRT Investing in the future

According to Business Insider Intelligence, the commercial use of drones will reach 2.4 million by 2023, growing at a 66% CAGR, driven by increased adoption by agriculture, construction, mining, insurance, media, and telecommunications industries. The drone services market is expected to grow to over $60 billion by 2025, up from $4.4 billion in 2018, and consumer drone shipments could reach 29 million in 2021 while the market for small drones is projected to increase to $40 billion by 2025. Through its 2020 acquisitions of Rotor Riot and Fat Shark, Red Cat has positioned itself for rapid growth across the drone industry ecosystem. In November, Fat Shark’s new digital drone goggles drove more than $1 million in new orders, a 53% year-over-year increase, while the Company’s Rotor Riot ecommerce store reported record sales. Set to drive further growth, Red Cat’s Dronebox solution, a blockchain technology that records, stores and analyzes flight data and information from a drone, much like the “black box” utilized by the airline industry, could be a game-changer in the larger commercial markets.
