The European Commission has updated rules on drone use in an effort to stimulate the fast-growing commercial market. Measures will be taken in the near future to combat the misuse of drones, Reuters reported.

Drones are increasingly used in agriculture, environmental protection, surveillance, urban planning, security and military operations, raising concerns about noise, security and privacy.

According to analysts, the U.S., Israel, China and Turkey are among the world's top four drone manufacturers.

"We believe that if our strategy is implemented properly, the drone market could be worth 14.5 billion euros ($15 billion) by 2030. It could also create 145,000 new jobs in the European Union," Transport Commissioner Adina Valean told a news conference.

The commission said measures are needed to combat the misuse of drones, as they are vulnerable to hacking and misuse.

The updated rules also highlight areas of synergy between civilian and defense drones.

The EU will also establish criteria for European Trusted Drone labeling so users can operate such drones safely and confidently.
