The Wild World of Urban Air Mobility and Investment Opportunities
The elevated future of mobility is far from assured, but major aircraft manufacturers, investors, and technology startups are taking the prospect of urban air transit seriously. Investors have already put hundreds of millions of dollars to develop over 100 eVTOL aircraft globally, and expect them to be operational within a decade. Some studies forecast the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market will be worth tens of billions of dollars across the value chain. In addition to OEMs, other parts of the UAM value chain will include passenger operations, UAS traffic management, operations and maintenance, infrastructure, insurance and financing.
