Hi Kuldeep, 
Thank you for using Syncfusion products. 
We have checked your requirement “To integrate DropDownList on First Row in Spreadsheet” and it has been achieved by using ‘cellTypes’ API or ‘addCellTypes()’ client-side methods.  Please refer the following code example. 
<div id="Spreadsheet"></div> 
var dataSource = [...]; 
$(function () { 
        sheets: [{ 
            rangeSettings: [{ dataSource: dataSource, startCell: "A3" }], 
            cellTypes: [                         
                { 'range': 'A1', 'settings': { 'type': ej.Spreadsheet.CustomCellType.DropDownList, 'dataSourceRange': 'A3:A11' } } 
        loadComplete: "onLoadComplete" 
function onLoadComplete(args) { 
    if (!this.isImport) { 
        //using Client-side method to add dropdownlist 
        //this.XLCellType.addCellTypes("A1", { 'type': ej.Spreadsheet.CustomCellType.DropDownList, 'dataSourceRange': 'A3:A11' }); 
For your convenience, we have prepared a sample to demonstrate this in JS Playground.  Please refer the below sample link,  
For more information, please refer the below online help documentation & sample links about cell types data representation in Spreadsheet.
