How DJI Took Over The Drone Market
When DJI founder Frank Wang was starting out, he had one simple goal in mind. He wanted to make a drone that would allow people to capture high-quality aerial footage without the hassle and expense of purchasing a professional-grade camera.
He knew that he needed to build a company around his idea and he decided to do so in Shenzhen, China. There he had access to a wealth of engineering talent and manufacturing expertise, which he could utilize to create drone hardware that was better than anything else out there.
DJI quickly climbed to the top of the drone market
Winning over customers with their patented gimbal technology and superior flight controls. Their success was built on a simple concept: they were building the best drones in the world at prices that other companies just couldn’t match.
The first drone to really take off in the consumer space was the DJI Phantom, which blew the doors off of competing products with its innovative features and performance. It was also designed to be easy to use, a big advantage over earlier models that required complicated user interfaces.
In the years since, DJI has been focusing on making products that appeal to a much larger audience. They’ve launched a range of drones that cater to different types of users, from casual hobbyists who want to take their own pictures with a drone to pros who need to capture aerial data.
They’ve also invested a lot of money in their own camera technology and gimbal systems to ensure that they have the best cameras on the market. In 2017, they even launched flying glasses, a product that has the potential to transform the drone industry completely.
Their hardware and software are constantly being improved.
They’ve embraced the feedback they get from their customers and have been willing to implement changes quickly in response.
As a result of this constant improvement and commitment to customer service, DJI is the market leader in terms of sales volume and customer satisfaction. Their software is also extremely well-designed and they are always updating their firmware to address any issues that may arise.
While they’re dominating the market, there are other players who have stepped in to challenge their leadership. There are several companies that have recently entered the drone space, bringing with them their own unique sets of skills and business plans.
One company that has come to compete with DJI is Mota, a Chinese startup that started selling drones for $80 and $130 in 2016. The company is trying to become a household name by focusing on its core product line.
Another contender is Parrot, a French firm that has also made drones for the enterprise market. It has a similar AI platform to DJI and is looking to take some of their business from them with the release of its Anafi USA, which is a 500-gram drone that will be aimed at first responders.
