Quantities of fielded smart Photography drone systems of every size and description are set to increase. Every photo opportunity can be enhanced via use of a smart drone. Drones will connect to smart phones. Drones can fly indoors. Smart commercial drones units feature a variety of camera attachments, sensors, and internal loads. Large 2,000 pound payloads are possible, campus security is set to emerge as a significant sector. Electro-optical/Infrared (EO/IR) sensor, and an all-weather synthetic aperture radar indicators are maximizing long loiter capabilities and increasing the usefulness of smart commercial drones. Smart commercial drones drone markets at $1.6 billion in 2014 are anticipated to reach $8.5 billion by 2021. This forecast number is arrived at by close examination of all the segment growth trajectories. Photography, real estate, campus security, filmmaking, and Videography are all being implemented in the context of drone photography. Each of these will grow at a different pace, depending on the use case effectiveness of the smart commercial photography drones. Commercial grade consumer video drones represent the largest revenue segment in 2015 and remain the biggest throughout the forecast period.

Electric aircraft serve the need for reduced noise, air and ground pollution and reduced global warming. They provide freedom from foreign sources of oil. They make new things possible such as helicopters that can carry out a controlled landing after engineering failures thanks to electric backup and leisure aircraft getting all their "fuel" from solar cells on the hanger. They expand the market for aircraft, while modernising the industry and opening up applications for many new electrical components and systems, including structural components, printed electronics and smart skin.
