Global drone market is expected to grow from presently RM 122 billion (USD 30.6 b) to RM 223 billion (USD 55.8 b) in 2030 (Drone Industry Insights, 2023). Logistic and cost benefits in present drone usage compared to traditional practices include 99+% result accuracy, the ability to safely complete the task by up to 85% faster and costs 5 times cheaper for project implementation. Strategic applications of 5G and Industry 5.0 in smart drone technology management aims to further optimise economic benefits and project outputs using existing operating budget without incurring any additional financial inputs. Cost-effective state-of-the-art 5G Powered Drones which can assist to improve the efficiency, optimise the production costs and also enhance the occupational safety and environmental management practices for any organisation or company would be most beneficial to any government or industrial sector worldwide. Accuracy of the assorted market drone designs in effectively carrying out various specialised tasks depends on internet speed and coverage; quality of drone software, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and on-board sensor systems. Implementation of 5G and eventually Industry 5.0 globally and in Malaysia will definitely greatly enhance drone efficiency and productivity. Highlights of this TAM technical presentation includes discussions on improved operations and economic benefits of 5G Powered Drones, Malaysia’s legislation for safe drone usage, numerous unique drone applications for the enterprising industry and aspiring entrepreneurs; and finally concluding with the upcoming exciting era of Industry Revolution 5.0.
