DJI drone price has increased since the new tax regulation of the United States. DJI as a Chinese drone manufacturer has raised the selling price of its drone products by 15 percent from the initial price. The increase was triggered by US President Donald Trump’s policy of raising additional tariffs for products from China imported by the United States. The increase in import tariffs is only the aftermath of the trade war between the US and China.
Additional import tariffs imposed by the US government are 15 percent for goods from China. According to a DJI spokesperson, the company has considered many factors when recommending retail prices for DJI products that are distributed globally. This includes tax rates to fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
“Since the recent tariff increases, DJI done price has now been updated,” said a DJI spokesman. “We comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where we operate,” he added. Price increases apply to DJI products on the United States market.
For example, in the United States, DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone is now priced at 1,729 US dollars which were originally only 1,499 US dollars. Then, the price of the DJI Mavic Air drone from what was originally priced at 799 US dollars is now 919 US dollars.
Summarized by TechandSoft from The Verge, the increase in the DJI drone prices came into force since import tariffs were applied. This policy ensnares various items such as smartwatches, television, and even footwear.
In addition to making prices soar, rising import tariffs also make it difficult for US-based companies, such as Apple because there are so many Apple products imported to the US from its factory in China. The price increase is already applied to the DJI drones in the land of Uncle Sam.
So what about in Asia? According to the Erajaya Director of Marketing & Communications as a distributor of DJI products, DJI’s drone prices in Asia tend to remain stable and have not shown signs of an increase. According to him, the trade war only occurred between the United States and China so that it did not have an impact on the price of DJI drones in some countries in Asia.
So far it is safe. Trade war tariff is only between China and the United States. So, it seems that it will not affect prices in some Asian countries. The United States government began imposing 15 percent import tariffs on Chinese goods since September 1, 2019. Initially, the planned import tariff imposed on Chinese goods worth 300 billion US dollars was 10 percent, but the percentage recently was later increased to 15 percent.
Previously, the US government intended to block every product imported from China, but the US government canceled the policy until finally, they come with their new regulation which also influences DJI drone prices. Fortunately, the tax rate increase is just applied to the US country so it will not influence the Asian market. So, If you are not living in the USA, you must be happy because the DJI drones are still affordable.
