Traditional methods of inspecting communication facilities, such as towers, cell towers, poles, and others, are no longer an option because of changing industry standards and governmental requirements. The issue is made easier by drone tower inspection services.

Drones can be utilized for regular tower inspections instead of sending teams of actual workers to the tower. It's faster, safer, and probably affordable in the future. With drones, regular inspections can be done more often, which makes the work of the towers more reliable.

By end use industry, the construction and mining sector is likely to account for 12.4% of revenue share with a valuation of US$ 36.9 million in 2023.
