No. You will need not the ability to program, but the ability to use other people's programs, i.e. to have initial literacy in this area.
And the ability to program is forgive the day before yesterday: there are no generalists programmers. (although there are certainly talented people.) Now all programmers have a specialization; and since the further into the forest, the more complex the programming environment, and the specialization becomes more and more narrow.
Parallel with doctors is not quite suitable here, but nevertheless: a dentist does not treat gastritis, a surgeon does not know how and does not must know how to neuropathology, so being just a doctor doesn’t work (unless you forget that a local doctor also has a specialization as a therapist).

Can you program? And I can't. And 99% of the rest of the readers don't know how either.
Unfortunately or fortunately, our whole world consists of devices that can and should be programmed. Most recently, these were only computers, but now every modern person has a smartphone and a tablet with him, and therefore the developer's work has increased. Oddly enough, there are not so many really good developers, because the demand for them is growing very quickly. Therefore, you have a chance to find a worthy job with a good salary and an interesting job. The programmer has a lot of things to do: you can create websites, you can become a data analyst, you can start making your own games, or you can create some kind of application to facilitate the routine of other people, for example, order a taxi in a couple of clicks or find out where you are at the moment are.
You can read an interesting story that becoming a developer is a real life-long journey, very exciting and interesting.
If in short, the answer to the question is yes, smartphones and computers surround us everywhere, just like numbers and letters. Therefore, the ability to program comes in handy literally at every step.
