As of 2021, according to Reader's Digest, there are only about 25 blimps still in existence and roughly only half of them are in use for advertising purposes.

There are several reasons for the decline in blimp usage:

  • High operating costs: Blimps require significant resources for fuel, maintenance, and crew, making them more expensive to operate compared to other advertising methods.
  • Safety concerns: Blimps are susceptible to strong winds and have been involved in accidents, raising safety concerns.
  • Advancement in technology: Other advertising methods like airplanes and digital billboards have become more advanced and cost-effective, leading to a decline in the popularity of blimps.

Therefore, the number of blimps is quite low, and they are no longer as common as they once were.
