A drone is a type of automaton that can fly either by control with a remote or
autonomously. The autonomous flying is controlled by a flight plan system in the form of
software that works together with GPS and onboard connected sensors. The drone is used to
enhance safety, improve communication, and facilitate marketing in many sectors (Lucchese,
Ohira & Leaver, 2019). There is a continued application of drones in fast-growing industries.
These fast-growing sectors that use drones include agriculture, construction, and public safety
The drone is continually being applied in the agricultural sector in monitoring the growth
of crops what is enhancing the increase in crop production. It provides farmers with information
concerning irrigation, soil analysis, field analysis, and control of birds (Lucchese, Ohira &
Leaver, 2019). It is from the imaged data that crop vigor crop canopy stress is indicated. It makes
it easier for farmers to apply the most appropriate fertilizers, pesticides, and right water amount
in specific parts of the field. The drone, even in 2020, will be involved most in this sector, and
reason agriculture is the economic backbone of most countries, so it must be done most
The building industry is one of the fast-growing sectors in many countries through the
application of technology drone use being an example. The drone is mostly used to give and
enhance the aerial view of a given site at a very economical and affordable price (Gago et al.,
2015). This imaging view facilitates plan development, progress tracking, and problem rise

monitoring all through the process of building. It has been enhancing the construction of
buildings that meets the standard and required quality. Even in 2020, the drone will be applied
widely in this sector since more modern buildings are being developed and constructed. To make
it efficient, drones must be employed in monitoring, thus their most extensive application.
Public Safety Sector
Drones are used to respond to police in case of accidents by pre-surveilling as an
application in the public safety sector. Police usually dispatch them to the accident scene in less
than fifteen minutes before responders arrive to acquire exact information. Innovators are trying
their best to find the most efficient ways to enhance their use in this sector what will enhance the
best response and most significant application to the scenes in 2020.
The above sectors will see the most significant growth in 2020 in the drone industry. It is
because they are one of the most growing and developing areas in most countries employing
technology; drone use is an example.
