Alphabet Boosts India’s Drone Manufacture, Sparks Job Growth

Alphabet’s entry and Tamil Nadu CM M.K. Stalin’s support boosted Indian drone makers, potentially liberalizing the sector and creating new jobs.

Officials from Google’s parent company, Alphabet, and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin meet, boosting Indian drone manufacturers. Reports indicate Alphabet plans to establish a drone manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu.

The Indian government continues efforts to support the drone industry. In 2021, a Rs 120 crore subsidy was announced under the PLI scheme for drone manufacturers. Recently, the Union Budget increased the sector’s PLI scheme outlay to Rs 57 crore.

Former Union Minister Anurag Singh Thakur aimed for India to lead global drone manufacturing by 2022. In 2023, the DGCA recognized 63 remote pilot training organizations, highlighting growing industry support.

India hosts 384 drone startups, including ideaForge and NewSpace Research. Statista forecasts Indian drone revenues to reach Rs 225 crore in 2024, trailing China’s Rs 12,740 crore.

The entry of a tech giant is expected to liberalize the sector, fostering new jobs like drone pilots and engineers. Concerns about potential monopolies are raised, urging regulatory caution.

Experts foresee Google’s entry as a catalyst for technology advancement and global industry recognition. They anticipate new opportunities for existing startups and technological innovations.

CEO Ankit Mehta assures that drones’ diverse applications ensure no single company threatens the entire ecosystem. He emphasizes the sector’s broad utility in agriculture, videography, defence, and more.

Investment platform Inflection Point Ventures reports interest from 30–40 drone startups seeking funding. They predict enhanced adoption with a tech giant’s ecosystem support, including manufacturing and global partnerships.
