Commercial Drone Market Segmentation Analysis:
In terms of volume, the segment of rotary blades accounted for almost 80.0% of the market in 2020 and is predicted to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Due to its ability to retain a visual on a single target for an extended amount of time, hover, and perform agile manoeuvres, the inspection market for rotary-blade drones is projected to develop. Typically, these drones are useful for a wide range of commercial applications, including filmmaking and photography, surveillance, and monitoring. In addition, they are simpler to manage than their fixed-wing and hybrid equivalents.
In 2020, the filming and photography category accounted for around 31.0% of the market’s revenue and is predicted to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Professional photographers are increasingly accepting drones as a means of gaining a competitive advantage, as they are becoming an intrinsic part of the field. Companies such as DJI are manufacturing miniature drone cameras capable of capturing high-quality photographs for professional photographers. Additionally, previously inaccessible landscapes and locations are now easily accessible.
In 2020, the media and entertainment sector owned almost 27.0% of the market share and is likely to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Drones have a number of media and entertainment uses. Filmmakers have begun using professional drones to take precise shots at the lowest possible cost. The rising demand from clients and owners for advertising resorts, hotels, tourist spots, public spaces, and amusement parks via aerial photography is likely to fuel the segment’s expansion.
North America represented roughly 37.0% of the market share in 2020 and is anticipated to witness considerable growth over the next seven years as a result of favourable government efforts, developments in drone technology, and increased demand from enterprises in a range of industries. Additionally, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States has established new regulations to provide clearer and more uniform guidelines for the legal and safe flying of UAVs in commercial situations. These rules and regulations are predicted to reduce entrance barriers and increase product adoption in the region.
Asia-Pacific is projected to experience the biggest volume growth between 2021 and 2028, with a compound annual growth rate of 63.1%. Regional demand for commercial drones is anticipated to approach 9 million units by 2028, surpassing that of North America. Positive regulatory conditions, particularly in developed nations, are anticipated to propel the market’s growth.

SHREWSBURY, NJ — An application for a use variance for a property on Broad Street will come before the borough Land Use Board when its meets Wednesday night.
Martelli Development Group, 942 Broad St., is seeking use variance relief, according to the agenda. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and this matter is later in the new business part of the agenda, according to borough documents. See the documents here.
At least one resident of the nearby Thornbrooke active adult community is concerned about the environmental and traffic impact, should a use variance be granted.
Resident Mike Nugent said in an email that, should the site be developed for a commercial use, “it will impact New Jersey-regulated freshwater wetlands, the Thornbrooke Senior Living community and potentially the Shrewsbury Historic District downtown.” He said he is also concerned about the impact on Mason Field.
According to borough documents, the application for the use variance is part of a “bifurcated” application to “renovate the present dwelling structure for commercial office use.”
The borough documents say the project would “construct a 3 1/2-car garage with attic storage space and construct off-street parking for 11 vehicles.”
The intended use of the premises is prohibited in the residential R-1A zone, the documents say, “therefore necessitating use variance relief and subsequent site plan approval.”
Nugent said he believes a traffic study is needed, and a study on the impact of the environment, and he plans to attend the meeting.
This stretch of Broad Street where the house is located recently saw the speed limit reduced to 35 mph and is lined by many older, often historic, homes, leading north to what is referred to as the Historic Four Corners of Shrewsbury, the intersection of Broad Street and Sycamore Avenue.
The site includes the Christ Episcopal Church (1769); the Quaker Meeting House, rebuilt in 1816 from a Friends Society dating to the late 1600s; and the Allen House, built in 1710 and the site of a British raid in the Revolutionary War when it was a tavern.
Question: Carl and Cindy from Cleves: From a tax standpoint, should we give our stock shares to our adult son now or just let him wait to eventually inherit the shares?
A: This really depends on how much stock you’re talking about, if the stock has seen significant gains, and if your son needs the money now (or not).
If you’re thinking of giving your son a substantial amount of stock that’s grown in value over the years, in most cases, it makes more sense for him to inherit the shares once you’re gone. This is due to something called a ‘stepped-up’ tax basis.
Here’s what that means: When you buy stock at a certain price, that price is your cost basis. For example, if you bought stock for $1,000 and you sell when it’s worth $5,000, you have $4,000 worth of profit to pay tax on. If you gift that stock to your son and he sells it for $5,000, he pays tax on the $4,000 profit. Now let’s say instead you plan to let your son inherit that same stock, and on the day the last one of you passes, it’s worth $5,000 and he sells the stock. Your son would have inherited the stock at the ‘stepped-up’ basis of $5,000, not your original $1,000 and there would not be a profit for him to pay tax on. As you can see, if the stock you’re dealing with has big profits, you’ll save your son money on taxes (once he sells) if you wait to let him just inherit the stock. Of course, if he needs the money now, that rationale may be moot.
If you’re not dealing with a lot of stock shares and/or a lot of profit, gifting the stock to your son now could make sense. The annual gift limit this year is $17,000 per person ($34,000 per couple). Any gift you give at or below this limit does not need to be reported to the IRS (though there are lifetime limits). But, just remember, in this scenario his cost basis when he eventually sells the stock is your original cost basis.
Here’s the Allworth Advice: There are tricky tax rules to navigate when dealing with passing along stock, so be sure to consult a trusted tax professional and/or financial advisor.
Q: Molly and Jason in Loveland: We’re going on vacation soon and renting a car. But we haven’t done that in a while, so just wondering if you have an tips for saving on rental costs.
A: One of our biggest tips is to not feel like you have to rent the car at the airport. According to a NerdWallet study from last year, you end up paying about 25% more on average renting from the airport than from another nearby location. So do a search around your vacation destination and see if the rental company you’re using has multiple locations. Compare prices, including how much it would cost to use a car share provider to get to the off-site location(s). You might come out ahead if you avoid the airport pick-up.
Additionally, don’t assume you have to accept the insurance coverage, which WalletHub says can cost an extra $61 a day on average. Between your own car insurance and even your credit card, you might already be covered. Just be sure to understand your coverage beforehand so you can make a confident decision. And along that same vein, memberships with businesses like Costco or with organizations such as AAA and AARP can come with rental perks – insurance coverage, waived ‘additional driver’ fees, and more. Some alumni associations and employers partner with major rental companies as well.
And don’t forget, as long as you don’t pre-pay, you can typically cancel a rental car reservation fairly painlessly and without penalty. So the Allworth Advice is that once you make your reservation, check prices again every week leading up to your vacation. If you see a better rate, make a brand-new reservation and simply cancel the old one.

Interest rates keep rising and Canadian housing prices keep falling, but Alberta and the rest of the Prairies are poised to outperform the nation as stormy market conditions continue to swirl in 2023.
That’s the conclusion of a new housing report by TD Economics.
Across Canada, monthly average housing prices have tumbled almost 20 per cent from their peak levels last year as several negative forces have touched down, including a series of interest rate hikes and a slowing economy.
During the same period, housing prices on the Prairies dipped by an average of six per cent.
“Moving forward, the same factors that have been helping to prop up markets in the Prairies over the past year are likely to remain in place,” TD economist Rishi Sondhi said in the report.
“This relatively resilient demand backdrop should also lead price growth in the Prairies to outperform the rest of Canada moving forward.”
Any resiliency is welcome, given the unpredictable factors rocking the country’s housing market.
Last week, the Bank of Canada boosted its key interest rate another quarter of a percentage point to 4.5 per cent — its eighth increase since March — and higher borrowing costs are pinching consumers.
The average sales price for a home in Canada is expected to fall by 10.7 per cent this year, according to TD.
In Alberta, prices will decline 5.6 per cent — averaging about $418,000 — with Saskatchewan seeing a 6.9-per-cent drop and Manitoba facing a 7.8 per cent decrease. (Only Newfoundland and Labrador will fare better.)
Larger markets that saw home prices skyrocket in recent years are expected to remain under pressure.
Prices are projected to fall by almost 10 per cent in British Columbia and 11.4 per cent in Ontario.
“The housing markets are holding up much better in the Prairies than they are in the rest of Canada,” Sondhi said in an interview.
The report projects total sales in Alberta will drop 20.9 per cent annually this year — above the national decline — “but they’ve fallen from such astronomically high levels (in 2022) that the levels of sales at the moment still remain highly elevated in Alberta,” he added.
The Canadian Real Estate Association recently forecast that housing prices nationally will drop 5.9 per cent this year to $662,000, while total sales decline 0.5 per cent.
The TD study, and a forecast released last week by the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB), paint a picture of a slowing market in this province, but it’s not like hitting a speed bump while driving at 120 kilometres per hour.
“I’m not expecting significant declines anywhere, based off what I am seeing,” said Ann Marie-Lurie, chief economist with the Alberta Real Estate Association (AREA).
Alberta’s housing market has several factors weighing in its favour.
The province will lead the country in economic growth as commodity prices remain robust, TD predicts.
A tighter housing market is also at play. The ratio of home sales to new listings in all three Prairie provinces is hovering around 60 per cent, what the bank deems to be approaching “seller’s territory.”
After two years of steady increases, Calgary house prices will stabilize in 2023: CREB
More people are moving to Calgary area than anywhere else on Prairies
Bank of Canada hikes key interest rate by quarter point, says it plans to hold
Why the mortgage stress test is likely here to stay, even as qualifying rates hit 8%
Alberta has another helpful dynamic bolstering demand: a parade of moving vans coming from other places.
Between July and September, Alberta saw the largest net gain from interprovincial migration since 1980, adding more than 19,000 people.
Calgary realtor Len T. Wong said the local market has slowed since the first half of 2022, but recent activity has been strengthened by out-of-province shoppers.
“Calgary’s market is stable and balanced, even this year,” Wong said. “We’re seeing a lot of migration here and we haven’t seen that in a long time.”
The affordability advantage is also playing in Alberta’s favour.
In Toronto and Vancouver, benchmark housing prices topped $1.1 million last year, compared with $518,000 in Calgary last month.
“The buyers coming into our market are looking for affordability, looking for a better lifestyle,” said realtor Jared Chamberlain of Chamberlain Group/Real Broker. “The phone has not stopped ringing from people who are still considering making moves out here.”
Perry Alampay and his wife, Mila, are among the thousands of Ontario residents who have relocated to Alberta in the past several months, leaving Newmarket — where they’d lived since the mid-1990s — to buy a home in Airdrie and retire.
They moved to Alberta in November.
“We started looking for a house and my wife loved it . . . Pricing in Ontario just got ridiculous,” Alampay said Tuesday.
“The value you get here, I would say it’s well worth moving here. And that’s why we’re convincing some of our family who are still in Ontario to come over.”
Across the province, the average home price increased five per cent to $447,500 through last year, while sales dipped almost two per cent.
The strongest sales activity occurred in Calgary, Red Deer, Grande Prairie and Edmonton, according to AREA.
“I do think we are an outlier, just because of our fundamentals. Stronger commodity prices have generally made our economy better. I think the migration coming into the province is a big factor,” said Lurie.
“That’s a natural offset for some of the impact of the higher rates.”
In 2024, TD expects housing prices in Alberta will increase 3.2 per cent.
“Our forecast would anticipate some near-term softness, but we do expect the market to stabilize and move higher relatively quickly,” added Sondhi.
“We’d expect the market to find a bottom sooner, rather than later.”

Thad Wong and Mike Golden, bosses of Chicago’s top residential brokerage @properties, are selling some of the real estate firm’s office space in Streeterville.
Two LLCs controlled by Wong and Golden sold the building to a local, unidentified buyer for $6.2 million, though @properties will continue to lease space in the 29,000-square-foot mixed-use building. The deal closed Dec. 27, and a local investor who isn’t yet identified by property records was the buyer.
Brant Sichko, a broker with Baird & Warner, represented the buyer. @properties commercial agents Mike Rourke and Dan Stratis represented the sellers. Rourke said the deal was a standard sale-leaseback, in which the sellers trade the property but lease it back from the new owner.
Wong and Golden bought the property for $3.6 million in 2005, records show.
The deal is also not the first recent sale of real estate held personally by the pair. Miami-based apartment developer Crescent Heights is in the process of buying a Fulton Market development site from Golden and Wong at 420 North May Street, where the builder has planned what would be the West Loop’s tallest tower, rising 52 stories with nearly 600 units, if approved.
The five-story Streeterville building, at 212 East Ohio Street, is one block east of the Magnificent Mile. The building is fully leased and its other tenant is Central City Productions, a television production company.
Baird & Warner, which predominantly handles residential transactions, had represented the buyer on two previous residential transactions, but this was the buyer’s first commercial purchase.
“In a commercial market where less office space is changing hands, and institutional buyers are waiting on the sidelines, smaller investors are getting opportunities because the market just isn’t very crowded,” Sichko said in a statement. “As a Chicagoan, my client always dreamed of owning investment properties in downtown Chicago, and it was a pleasure to help them expand their real estate portfolio with the acquisition of a fully-leased commercial property steps from the Mag Mile.”
The move comes as office and retail space in downtown Chicago continues to struggle post-pandemic, with more than a fifth of office space in the area vacant as of last quarter, an all-time high.
After a little over two years on the market, the PlayStation 5 has already amassed a solid lineup of first-party titles, which Sony is looking to promote via their latest live-action TV spot.
The new commercial, entitled “Live from PS5”, shows news reporters broadcasting from a variety of locations inspired by current and upcoming PS5 games, including God of War Ragnarok, Spider-Man 2, Returnal and more. Additionally, stuffed within the montage towards the end of the video below are clips of a young woman in a cave holding a torch and walking towards some sort of artifact. Although there’s no clear evidence as to what these clips are teasing, the most likely answer seems to be a new Uncharted game, possibly starring Cassie Drake, the daughter of Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher who makes an appearance in Uncharted 4. If this is a new Uncharted, it almost certainly won’t be made by Naughty Dog, as co-president Neil Druckmann stated in a recent interview with Buzzfeed that the studio has “moved on” from the Uncharted series. It remains to be seen whether Sony has enlisted one of their first-party studios or brought in help from a third-party developer to create the next Uncharted, or if the game being teased is even related to Naughty Dog’s treasure hunting series.

This year’s AFM features actress and Avocado Lover Anna Faris
DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Holy guacamole! Today, Avocados From Mexico® (AFM), the number one selling avocado brand in the U.S., dropped the official teaser for their 2023 Big Game ad. The commercial, featuring actress and comedic star Anna Faris in her Big Game debut, is part of the brand’s perfectly ripe campaign designed to show how Avocados From Mexico makes everything better.
“I’m so excited to be starring in my first Big Game commercial,” says Faris. “Working with Avocados From Mexico was the perfect fit because I get to promote – and eat – a product I really love. I can’t wait for the rest of the world to see the amazing world of good we’ve dreamed up.”
The ad was ideated by LERMA agency and directed by legendary Big Game director, Bryan Buckley. Buckley, who has directed 70 Big Game commercials, partnered with AFM for the first time to direct this year’s spot. “We really wanted to channel Anna’s contagious sense of humor and lovable personality while creating the ad,” said Buckley. “We are excited for fans to tune in and see how Avocados From Mexico makes everything better.”
Buckley is an esteemed recipient of numerous awards and accolades, such as The One Clubs Director of the year 2022 and The Clios Director of the year 2022, in addition to being named one of the 50 Best Creative Minds in the last 25 years by Creativity Magazine. The ad is produced by his production company, Hungry Man, which has been recognized as the top commercial production company in the world at the Cannes Festival, winning the Palme D’or, and made the Cannes Top Ten Production Companies list for more than ten consecutive years, the first production company in history to do so.
AFM teamed up with the award-winning Dallas, Texas based advertising agency, LERMA to concept and produce the ad, which will mark the brand’s eighth Big Game appearance. There’s good reason for Avocados From Mexico to show up big every year: an estimated 250 million pounds of avocados are consumed leading up to football’s biggest weekend, enough to cover a football field with more than 75 feet of guacamole1.
AFM became the first produce brand to advertise at the Big Game when they made their debut in 2015. In the last decade, AFM’s Big Game campaigns have earned more than 90 accolades and recognitions for their unprecedented performance. AFM is the only brand to be ranked as one of the top two Big Game digital campaigns for five consecutive years by the Merkle Report.
“When creating concepts for this year’s ad, it was a no-brainer to focus on why consumers love Avocados From Mexico,” said Alvaro Luque, AFM President and CEO. “With good taste, good fats2 and the good times they bring, they just make everything better. People eat more avocados during the Big Game than any other day of the year, so we’re certain this spot will resonate with the millions of football fans enjoying guacamole on gameday.”
The new 30-second spot will air during the Big Game, which will broadcast live on Sunday, February 12, 2023. This will be Avocados From Mexico’s eighth Big Game ad in the past decade. The ad supports AFM’s current 360 marketing campaign designed to celebrate how Avocados From Mexico makes everything better. The campaign includes in-store shopper promotions, a new Avocado Glow home and kitchen accessories line for entertaining, and interactive digital activations.

Meloni stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers to chat about recent celebrations with the his family, his time as Elliot Stabler, and, in a surprise twist, his early commercial work. To those more familiar with Meloni’s roles in Wet Hot American Summer, Law & Order, Oz, or even his more recent risqué Peloton ad, these ’90s commercials are quite a blast from the past. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but, yes, there was a time when Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler were not yet partners. It seems hard to believe, we know, but Meloni actually got his start earning residual checks from commercials—most notably for McDonald’s and Burger King.
“I feel like these are Law & Order fans, but I was a fan of your early commercial work,” Meyers joked to Meloni during the segment.
“Yeah, this is what got me out of the bars,” Meloni revealed. “Not from drinking, but from being a bouncer and a bartender.”
“You did both Burger King and McDonald’s,” Meyers said.
“Correct,” Meloni confirmed, adding that he has been in “over 50 commercials” throughout his career. But Meyers wasn’t joking when he said Meloni’s advertisement work is a special treat, which he showcased to the Late Night audience with throwback clips of Meloni’s fast food projects.
In a commercial for Burger King hailing directly from the 90s, Meloni bites into a juicy sandwich while smiling enthusiastically for the camera. And boy, is he chomping. While the commercial is straightforward (advertising the “Yumbo, the hot ham and cheese sandwich!“), Meloni reveals to Meyers that getting camera-ready was quite the task.
“Great sh-t,” Meloni jokes. “That’s talent!”
Meloni then told a behind-the-scenes tale of the Burger King commercial, when the producer was disturbed by the state of Meloni’s hands, demanding the young actor get a manicure. Having never received a manicure, Meloni was at a loss when the nail technician asked if he wanted nail polish. “So I got a polish,” Meloni admitted. “And the producer hit the roof, he went nuts on me.” But OC fans love a polished king!
“A lot of people forget about the Burger Wars, but in this era, you got to be quite an actor to go from a Burger King commercial to a McDonald’s,” Meyers explained before showing the audience a clip of Meloni’s McDonald days.
The spot shows a young man and woman on a date, chatting about what they’ll have for dinner that night. “Look, if you want to go out with me, we will not be going to any restaurant which refers to itself as a Bistro, Casa, or Amazon,” a younger Meloni tells the woman. “We will be going to McDonald’s.”
“There you are on a date insisting to a woman that you will only be going to McDonald’s,” Meyers teased.
“Laying down the law,” Meloni mused, before playfully adding, “Women like strong men.”
