Capturing Moments from Above: The Driving Force

The surge in the popularity of aerial photography takes the center stage as the driving force behind the growth of the consumer (recreational) drone market. Photography enthusiasts are increasingly turning to drones to capture stunning photographs and videos from a birds-eye view, eliminating the need for high-end video cranes. This growing popularity has led to a surge in consumer purchases of hobbyist drones specifically for photography purposes, propelling market growth. According to the United States Federal Aviation Administration, a staggering 3.5 million small hobbyist drones were anticipated in the skies in 2021.


Industry Giants: Leaders Shaping the Landscape

Major players in the consumer drones market play a pivotal role in shaping the industry landscape. Key contributors include 3D Robotics, Cheerson, Parrot S.A, DJI, Yuneec, EHang, Airdog, GoPro, and Guangdong Cheerson Hobby Technology. Together, these industry leaders are at the forefront of innovation and progress in the consumer drones market.


AI Takes Flight: Automation in Consumer Drones

Drone manufacturers are embracing the power of artificial intelligence to automate consumer drones, ushering in a new era of technological advancement. Consumer drones are now equipped with self-navigating technology, utilizing deep-learning algorithms and other machine learning methods. Unlike traditional drones controlled by remote controllers, these AI-enabled drones can operate beyond the controller’s range and line-of-sight. Flight instructions are programmed directly within the drone, allowing it to learn how to fly autonomously. An exemplary model is Skydio’s R1, a drone that leverages machine learning to navigate mid-air, following a designated target with remarkable precision.
