Drones played a pivotal role during the COVID-19 pandemic, when social isolation and distancing was the only way to escape being infected. At the peak of the wave, several news reports pointed to how drones were being used in some of the remotest corners of India to make medicines and other health supplies available. The drone industry in India has bloomed due to its various uses in civilian, commercial, and defence sectors.
The industry has witnessed increased adoption in recent years owing to its widespread capabilities, from surveillance to simple photography, monitoring rail lines and roads, and delivering food and essential products to customers.
According to 6Wresearch, the Indian commercial drone market will grow at a CAGR of 12.4 percent between 2022 and 2031.
The industry is expected to reshape our daily lives with drones being leveraged for multiple needs. The drone industry has also received encouragement from the government, with promises of complete support and major policy changes to promote the drone startup ecosystem by banning the import of drones.
Here are some drone-tech startups that are creating waves in the industry through technology and innovation.
Founded by Mughilan Thiru Ramasamy and Mrinal Pai in 2014, Bengaluru-based drone-tech startup Skylark Drones provides worksite intelligence and enables accurate business decision-making using drone data.
