Drones are becoming extensively popular around the world. The benefits and popularity of drones are extensively growing in India as well. Before 2018, drone registration and regulations were very hectic for content creators and customers who were planning to use a drone. However, to make sure drone flying in India gets easy and hassle-free, the government of India launched Digital Sky Portal where customers have to register their drones (except nano) to obtain permission to fly. Since the Digital Sky Portal have been launched, flying drones in India have become comfortable and hassle-free. As the popularity of drones is increasing, the demand for drones in various industries is also growing simultaneously. In other words, the impact of drones in society is increasing because of the increased demand. Some of the sectors where the drone is going to dominate and make its space in future are:
- Food Service: Many big companies around the world have already started using drones to offer food to their customers at their doorsteps. With drones in food delivery, companies are trying to reduce the delivery cost, which adds more pressure on their expenses. Since food delivery is one of the most common routines by people, using drones in food services will surely impact the lives of people and society.
- Defence Operations: Drones are being used in Military and defence operations for a long time. One of the most common used drones by the defence sector is the predator UAV. Similar to the technology, drone manufactures have developed portable drones which are helping defence personnel to plan strategic operations against their enemy. Not only this, to track the movements of the enemy and lead tactical initiatives, but drones in defence operations are also being used extensively for the safety of the nation. Also, the use and demand of drones in tactical operations and missions will grow in future.
- Healthcare: Urban Areas have some of the best medical facilities available for increasing life expectancy, preventing diseases and keeping a healthy environment. However, health care facilities in rural areas are still not that advanced. The traditional mode of transport is still used for medical supplies which takes longer duration. Making medicines, providing blood and other important medical equipment more accessible will be the major impact of drones in the healthcare field.
- Advertising: Drones in the advertising sector will be one of the major demanded products for aerial marketing. Drones have the ability to lift things, and it is the perfect choice to market your offering from an aerial view, which would absorb the attention of people.

To ensure the safety of wildlife, all the conservationists are using dynamic approaches to protect wildlife. One such approach is using drones for tracking wild animals. Renowned drone manufacturer DJI has worked within the sector to facilitate research with the help of drones without disturbing the natural habitat. Drones are becoming extremely important in the field of wildlife, and their demand will extensively grow in future.
