Two years ago Mike Blades, an aerospace and defense-industry analyst for the market-research firm Frost & Sullivan, estimated that Americans would purchase 200,000 drones a month in 2015. That's not bad for an industry that in 2010 did not exist. But even then Blades may have underestimated demand; recently Rich Swayze, a top FAA official, estimated that Americans gave up to 1 million drones as gifts last Christmas.
...
Blades has upped his predictions accordingly. In 2014 he thought the commercial market for drones would reach $4.5 billion by 2020; now he thinks a more accurate guess is $6.5 billion.
"Just in the last year or two, really good drones have become really affordable," Blades said. "This market is only going to keep getting bigger."
As demand grows, so do calls for more regulation. The FAA's rules were the first step nationally, but Blades and Ari Rosmarin, the public policy director of the ACLU of New Jersey, agree it won't be the last.

"Some people didn't want to have to deal with the consequences if something goes wrong," Blades said.

Michael Blades, a senior analyst at the market research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan, said the train- ing and simulation market is attractive because while other programs in the defense budget are experiencing cuts, funding for training remains stable. Blades projected that the combined annual growth rate from fiscal year 2015 to fiscal year 2020 for total spending on training and simulation would increase about 1.7 percent per year. That number is close to the rate of inflation, which means training and simulation is a steady market, he said. Another reason companies like Lock- heed would be interested in investing in such systems is because militaries in general want to do more with less, he said. "They want to be able to do more training for readiness with the same amount of dollars. One solution to that problem is using immersive virtual training as opposed to expensive live training, Blades said.
