Drone delivery is still in the trial program stage but are American consumers ready for drone delivery? Auterion recently surveyed more than 1,000 American consumers in their “Consumer Attitudes on Drone Delivery” survey to measure consumer viewpoints on drones and found 94% view drones as having a potential positive purpose in the world. One quarter of those surveyed ,24%, say the pandemic impacted their view of drones and robotics, with 50% citing they have seen more automation via robotics and drones and 49% have seen more conversations around the possible adoption of robotics and drones. A majority, 58%, favor the idea of drone deliveries and even more, 64%, think drones are becoming an option for home delivery now or will be soon. As prices for traditional means of delivery increase due to rising fuel prices and labor shortages, 47% of consumers surveyed say they would choose a retailer based upon the choice for drone delivery. “Americans are ready for action from the corporate world to reduce emissions and streamline city congestion, and cargo drones will soon become that everyday option to provide direct package delivery during the busy holiday season, or any other time of year” said Lorenz Meier, co-founder and CEO of Auterion.
