Drone Economy Strategy ETF

DRONE ECONOMY STRATEGY ETF

The first ETF focused on the emerging commercial drone market, The ETFMG Drone Economy Strategy ETF, provides an instrument for investing in this omnipresent technology segment. News coverage of this new technology has been largely dominated by articles and features on the growth in the recreational use of drones by consumers and enthusiasts. However, in parallel with this there have been a number of innovative developments from hardware and software companies ranging from well-funded start-ups to established Fortune 500 firms that together are forming an exciting enterprise ecosystem of drone solutions that address the needs of a substantial list of clients in the agriculture, construction, real estate, energy, media, and government markets.

Commercial drones are quickly finding applications across these industries and others with solutions that were unimaginable ten years ago. Sample applications in these industries include:

Agriculture

Real-time analysis of soils, crops, nutrients, and moisture levels will allow for a giant step forward in the precision of crop maintenance and resources allocation.

Utilities

Inspection, surveying, and surveillance will enhance the management of pipelines and power stations and systems.

Construction

Inspection and general maintenance and surveillance will provide cost efficiencies previously unavailable and can dramatically improve safety to personnel.

Discussion and announcements in the drone delivery space have been spearheaded by major retail and e-commerce companies. Such deployment is predicted to be a game changer in solving the “last mile” of the supply chain.

Not unlike the introduction of the automobile over one hundred years ago, the introduction of the commercial drone industry will bring many changes in the way that businesses and government agencies operate. The growth of the drone market will likely be determined by a combination of technological and regulatory issues. Regardless, the benefits of drone technology are expected to touch a majority of industries in the coming years.

The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Reality Shares Drone Index.
