Cumulative Impact of COVID-19:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on drone inspection and monitoring due to the need for social distancing measures. Companies are now turning to drones to reduce contact between personnel while still having access to critical data and information.

Cumulative Impact of Russia-Ukraine Conflict:

In addition to the effects of the pandemic, another major factor driving up demand for drone inspection and monitoring services is the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. As tensions increase between these two countries, drones are an ideal solution as they can provide real-time footage from difficult-to-reach locations without putting personnel in harm’s way. This allows for better decision-making with regard to operations management in areas affected by political instability or unrest.

Cumulative Impact of High Inflation:

High inflation levels around the world make it increasingly difficult for businesses to manage costs while maintaining quality standards. The use of drones is one way that companies can reduce expenses while still ensuring compliance with safety laws and regulations. By using drones instead of sending personnel into hazardous environments or areas where there may be heightened security risks, businesses can save money on wages, travel expenses, insurance premiums, etc., thus reducing overall costs associated with inspection or monitoring tasks.
