Growing market for US drones

Hundreds of companies in Washington show off their wares in world’s fastest growing aerospace market.

    It is the fastest growing segment of the global aerospace industry, forecast to reach $90bn over the next decade.

    They are unmanned aerial vehicles, better known as drones.

    Though drones usually make news headlines for being used as weapons, many of these aircraft are not designed for military use.
