Commercial drones are becoming a necessity for businesses. Industries such as shipping, photography, agriculture, engineering, and construction are appreciating the convenience of these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). As the demand for these devices is rising, the need for semiconductor chips is also following suit. Being the central parts of a device, microprocessors and microcontrollers will face a steady rise in demand in the coming months.

Semiconductor companies are investing money in research and production to advance drone technology and increase the efficiency of semiconductors used for UAVs with different purposes. At present, drones for public use are showing a lot of vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers and attackers. While companies are trying to fix security flaws, the semiconductor industry is already gearing up for increased and strengthened use for these drones.
As drone technology is continually being industrialized, drone manufacturing companies are also teaming up with semiconductor companies in designing more efficient models with a wider range of functions. In the coming years, the semiconductor industry is expected to earn billions of dollars thanks to the widespread business and individualized use of drones. For now, the industry has to coordinate with authorities and UAV companies to ensure that this new technology will be safe for public use.
