DJI accounts for around 70% of the world's consumer drone market as of March 2020.[5] Its camera drone technology is widely used in the music, television and film industries. The company's products have also been used by militaries and police forces,[6] as well as terrorist groups, with the company taking steps to limit access to the latter.[7]

US government institutions have prohibited the internal use of DJI products,[8] but as of 2020, various agencies at the local and federal level continued to use DJI products.[6] In December 2021, the United States Department of the Treasury prohibited investment in DJI by U.S. individuals and entities, accusing the company of complicity in aiding the Uyghur genocide.[9]
