  • The Federal Aviation Administration projects that the number of drones will continue to grow in the next few years, reaching 1.5 million for recreation and 800,000 for commercial use by 2024. 
  • The US House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill to earmark up to $200 million in spending for drone use in wide-ranging inspections of the nation’s aging infrastructure. 

The Federal Aviation Administration projects that the number of drones will continue to grow in the next few years, reaching 1.5 million for recreation and 800,000 for commercial use by 2024. 

These drones range in size from small handheld systems to those weighing over 50,000 pounds. Today, drones are also being used to enhance traditional inspection methods for critical infrastructures, such as bridges and roads.

This allows for a more efficient and cost-effective way to ensure that these structures are safe and sound. In the future, drones will likely play an even greater role in our lives, providing a variety of benefits for both individuals and businesses alike.

The US House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill to earmark up to $200 million in spending for drone use in wide-ranging inspections of the nation’s aging infrastructure.

If enacted, the measure would appropriate up to $200 million in federal funds for state and local governments to conduct wide-ranging infrastructure inspections using drones. The legislation would also establish a competitive grant program at the Department of Transportation (DOT) to cover up to 80 percent of the costs associated with integrating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly known as drones, into infrastructure inspections. The remaining 20 percent would have to be shouldered by state and local beneficiaries of the program.

Both bills were drafted with the intent of helping government agencies keep tabs on US infrastructure — bridges, roads, dams, and pipelines, among other things — without putting workers in harm’s way or overburdening them financially. The two pieces of legislation would put America closer to establishing a comprehensive drone-based infrastructure inspection program.

According to Allied Market Research, the global drone inspection and monitoring market size was valued at $6.44 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach $35.11 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 16.1% from 2021 to 2030.
