Our infographic shows investments into drone companies over the past decade. These are split into: general drone companies, passenger drone companies, counter-drone providers, and UTM providers. The data shows that investors and venture capitalists continue to invest in drones in spite of a global pandemic that caused a global economic recession. In fact, the sector of passenger drone companies received a substantial boost and received almost 8x as much investment as in previous years. In general, all sectors received an increase in investments, which led to a new record amount of money that people invest in drones.

For more information on these investment patters by segment and sector, read our blog post. Here is an excerpt from the blog:

“As the effects of the pandemic fade, many businesses will seek to return toward regular operations. Yet other companies will likely be operating with newer drone technologies that received a boost while others were locked down. The large investments in drones have provided a substantial push to an already-rapidly-growing drone industry. In particular the heavy investment into drone hardware mean that we are likely to see drones being used more and more as regulations catch up.”
