Drone budgets in the UK are ‘being withheld’ until Brexit is over, COPTRZ claims


COPTRZ says that drone companies are finding themselves without budgets in the country’s current state of Brexit uncertainty.

Commenting on the state of the UK’s drone market, COPTRZ managing director, Steve Coulson, said: “The uncertainty of Brexit means budgets are being withheld or elsewhere spent until the country knows and understands what changes will occur.”

Another problem affecting budgets, COPTRZ feels, is the industry being a relatively young one.

As part of an exclusive interview with CDP, Coulson continued: “The current immaturity of the market can limit innovation. Innovation is an enormous aspect of our business.

“It’s our mission to ‘Revolutionise Organisations Using Drones’, and to do that we’ve got the most complete range of commercial drones in the world, an offering that we must continuously innovate and improve on to ensure our customers receive the best drone solutions.

“We find that constantly evolving legislation causes caution around commercial drone practices.

“Awareness and the cascade of clear information is key to ensure that we help our clients understand the full potential of the drone industry,” she concluded.
