After TikTok, the USA might also ban DJI drones

Previously, we mentioned how ByteDance was given time to sell TikTok before it was banned in the USA. This time, the same congress could also ban DJI drones. That said, what should you know about it?

According to reports, the U.S. Congress is currently pushing a bill aimed at restricting the use of DJI drones in the United States . This bill places DJI on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) blacklist. That means that DJI will be prohibited from operating on the communications infrastructure of the United States. As a result, the ban could have a significant impact on DJI's commercial activities in the United States.

In addition, DJI drones account for about 58% of the U.S. commercial drone market and are widely used by U.S. law enforcement agencies. Although the latest data is unclear, DJI's drone usage among law enforcement agencies is as high as 90%, according to a 2020 study from Bard College.

Moreover, some experts pointed out that although the U.S. government claims to ban DJI drones, the actual situation is that the United States continues to purchase and use DJI products, which shows a contradictory situation in the United States. We have yet to confirm other details on this matter so we should wait for further confirmation from DJI.

Overall, DJI produces some of the best devices on the market. Hopefully, everything will be sorted out. Should their devices be banned in the USA, we hope the same will not happen in Malaysia.
