AirWorks 2018: Head of strategic partnerships likens drone industry to beginnings of the PC market


Jan Gasparic, DJI’s head of strategic partnerships, has likened the current state of the drone industry to where the PC market was at the beginning of its development.

He made the statement as part of a keynote talk to industry professionals at DJI’s third annual conference in the US.

He said: “The drone industry is in the same place now the personal computer industry was 30 or 40 years ago.”

A statement of this sort from DJI and its team is unusual for company which often remains conservative on just how quickly and at what scale it thinks the industry is progressing.

Despite quick growth over the past five years, DJI’s management ensure they keep their feet firmly on the ground and do their best “not to get carried away”, as Gasparic put it.

However, this statement, as well as the partnerships made at AirWorks this year, show how DJI is preparing for the future and is clearly planning for the drone industry to continue with the fast pace of growth it has shown so far.
