Google Plans to Launch Drone Delivery Service

United States: Alphabet Inc., parent company of Google plans to launch Drones that can be used to carry out deliveries across the United States. The new online project which is termed as “Wing Marketplace” will be soon used commercially for delivering foods.   

The company is already in talks with Domino’s Pizza, Whole Foods, and numerous other food joints for carrying out delivery of food products through Drone. The new delivery venture is carried out by Project Wing which is a part of Alphabet’s moon-shot lab termed “X”. The Project Wing is currently supported by a staff of about 85 people who are currently involved in carrying out designing of drone capable of delivering packages.

Prior to this project the company has successfully carried out a test project and delivered food to Virginia Tech students in September through a drone. Although, to prevent any mis-happening human pilots were made available to take control. The company also had to deploy human pilots to abide by the rules issued by Federation Aviation Administration (FAA). Alphabet Inc. was granted by permission by FAA to test delivery drones as a part of their research project. The company is planning to implement the project over a span of next three years.

As per TechSci Research, the company’s move of launching Drone Delivery System is one of its own kind in the Global market. As of now, Alphabet is one of the early initiators to foray into the food delivery business through drones. However, once implemented the service has a high potential to be popular in the market. Additionally, the move is also expected to increase the demand for commercial drones in the coming years.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “Global Commercial Drone Market By Drone Type, By Application, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2015-2021”, the global market for commercial drone is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 27% during 2016-2021. In 2015, North America and Europe cumulatively accounted for a market share of more than 60% in the global commercial drone market. With US being the largest market for commercial drones, the civil aviation body of the US, Federal Aviation Administration, has constantly been making amendments in policies and regulations for use of commercial drones in the country. Moreover, frequent modifications in the regulatory policies by European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) over the last few years has also been positively influencing the drone industry.
