If you've been following the drone market in 2016, you know that the commercial market has really come into its own. With the FAA making it easier for drone pilots to become legal with the Part 107, businesses have sprung up all over the country.
At the same time, companies like 3DR have almost completely abandoned the consumer market going after the commercial market instead. Even veteran drone companies like YUNEEC have had seen fewer sales in the consumer market with drones like the Typhoon H and YUNEEC Breeze. The only company that seems to have not been affected is DJI who hold a majority of the market share. Even with thousands of pre orders for their DJI Mavic Pro, many of these are from prosumers who are looking to use the Mavic for commercial purposes, or as a backup to their already professional rigs.
The need for more professional photography and video is also shown by the new release of the Phantom 4 Pro and the Inspire 2 by DJI. The Phantom 4 Pro has a new 1" sensor that greatly improves the cameras capability. It also can now take 20mp still images and take 4k video at 60fps. These advancements show that DJI is expecting drone pilots to use their products for more professional applications.
We can expect this trend to continue where consumer drones get small, foldable and portable, and commercial drones offer more professional cameras and equipment. CasePro continues to develop cases for these new drone including the Phantom 4 Pro and DJI Mavic. As the drone space continues to move forward quickly, Casepro is responding by offering new cases for the latest and greatest drones on the market.
