Drone aerial photography is just one area of application that’s on the rise. And it’s not hard to see why. Drones can literally follow the weather for environmental and weather system monitoring of climate change. They’re also excellent for high-end cinematography, real estate photography, geographical reconnaissance and more.

Drones have applications in agriculture, construction and delivery too, such as getting medical supplies to remote areas. They’re also used for media and emergency services.

Demand in the drone market may have slowed in 2020, but it’s still a $22.5 billion industry and a very versatile one at that. Drones are being reimagined as an in-game tool for gamers, as well as for drone races and combat!
