India’s drone industry is on the rise – and investors, service providers, drone ecosystem companies and customers who are interested in what could be one of the world’s biggest markets can get an insider’s view at the Drone Festival of India, held January 6 and 7 in New Delhi. Register now at Drone Federation of India, sponsors of the event.
From Deep Kanakia, the Director of Operations for the Drone Federation of India: “The Drone Industry in India is at a point of inflexion where the fundamentals have been proven and the potential has been recognised. For any technological market to flourish there needs to be focus on innovation, financing and having a healthy regulatory environment,” says Kanakia. “India is moving past this inflexion point as it navigates the complexity of having all three factors in place. India’s drone ecosystem is going to grow manifold in the near future in both Drone Services and Drone Manufacturing Sectors.”
