Drones in supply chain & human mobility – will the pandemic start a new era?

Developments in air mobility are closely followed by a large and global community of professionals. Most of the public buzz is about the potential for manned air mobility such as air taxis adding to human micro-mobility, with far less discussion of unmanned air mobility solutions and drones. However, it is clear that there is enormous scope for such unmanned vehicles, with many use cases to be explored.

Anecdotal evidence points to CEOs worldwide coming to terms with the reality that business will be anything but normal over the coming months. Most are bracing for a protracted, long drawn U-shaped recession seeing the virus outbreak as a growing risk and a real threat to their business survival – Editor

Insights into the influence of Covid-19 on the current and post-pandemic Life Sciences & Healthcare market

The word “quarantine” is derived from the Italian word quarantena, the 40-day isolation period demanded during the Middle Ages before a ship was permitted to enter port, in order  to protect the port city from disease. Humans are social animals, and as we endure our 40 days of self-isolation and lockdown across the globe, we are starting to feel stressed and to long for some short to mid-term perspectives.

Accordingly, the rise of phenomena such as mobile banking services, online insurance sales and microlending represents not so much a market shift as the emergence of an entirely new market.  This new market is very large – potentially consisting of over 400 million new customers.
