Fort Collins, Colorado, April 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Industry expansions across several sectors boost industry growth.


The tethered drones market shows immense promise for expanding into new industry verticals beyond surveillance and communication. Sectors such as energy, construction, and agriculture are increasingly realizing the advantages of tethered drones for aerial inspection, surveying, and monitoring purposes. For instance, within the energy industry, tethered drones can efficiently inspect power lines, wind turbines, and solar panels, reducing reliance on manual inspections and improving safety measures. Recognizing the potential of drones in the energy sector, the U.S. Department of Energy has invested in research and development initiatives to advance drone technologies for inspecting energy infrastructure. As more industries explore the potential applications of tethered drones, the market stands ready for significant growth and diversification.

Tethered drones have emerged as a transformative technology in surveillance and security, providing continuous aerial monitoring capabilities with their capacity to remain airborne for prolonged durations, often surpassing 24 hours.  They are well-suited for border patrol, crowd surveillance, and emergency response tasks. As per a report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the deployment of tethered drones has substantially bolstered border surveillance initiatives, facilitating uninterrupted monitoring of expansive areas while reducing reliance on human patrols. Moreover, incorporating advanced sensors and imaging systems has broadened the scope of surveillance applications, enabling real-time data collection and analysis.
