Summary –

Even if only 1% to 2% of the packages sold online are delivered by UAS, the operations will dwarf the volume of flights handled by the existing Air Traffic Management system (ATM). We forecast 100 million packages per day will eventually be delivered via UAS, 10 times today's aircraft operations.
The economics of last-mile delivery are so compelling that existing companies will have no choice but to adopt this technology to survive and that new markets will be opened. Pizzas, milk, clothing, and just about any item that consumers want quickly will be delivered via UAS.

Where we are today - almost 1 million small UAS were registered in the United States in the first 18 months of the FAA registration requirement; roughly 100,000 are registered for commercial use, according the FAA - four times the current fleet of manned aircraft, including commercial and general aviation. The FAA forecasts that the commercial UAS fleet will grow to more than 500,000 by 2021.
