According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “GCC Geographic Information System (GIS) Market Report by Component (Hardware, Software, Services), Function (Mapping, Surveying, Telematics and Navigation, Location-Based Services), Device (Desktop, Mobile), End Use Industry (Agriculture, Utilities, Mining, Construction, Transportation, Oil and Gas, and Others), and Country 2024-2032," the GCC geographic information system (GIS) market size reached US$ 681.9 Million in 2023. Geographic information system (GIS) refers to an advanced technology used to capture, store, manipulate, and analyze geospatial data. It’s comprised of computers, servers, storage devices, software applications, and various data sourced from census, satellites, and navigation systems. GIS is widely used in urban planning, environmental science, transportation networks, natural resource management, agriculture, public health, and emergencies. It is a cost-effective and versatile technology that increases efficiency, improves public safety, and promotes collaboration between partners. GIS also enhances data analysis capabilities and allows better visualization, which aids in decision-making, optimizing operations, saving time, reducing energy consumption, and improving overall outcomes.

GCC Geographic Information System (GIS) Market Trends:

The rising number of smart city projects is one of the key factors driving the market growth in the GCC region. GIS is widely used for developing, managing, and planning various smart city operations, such as transportation, public safety, utilities, waste generation, land use, building infrastructure, and environmental monitoring. Furthermore, the increasing initiatives by several regional governments, such as the Abu Dhabhi spatial data infrastructure program, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia geospatial information infrastructure, and the Bahrain spatial data infrastructure (BSDI) to promote the adoption of geospatial data in national planning and development projects is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of cloud-based GIS that provides easy accessibility, enhances security, improves scalability, and allows easy integration with other services and applications is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) to increase the accuracy and speed of geospatial analysis and automate several operations, such as image classification, predictive modeling, and object detection, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread adoption of GIS in the agriculture industry to support precision farming, optimize water usage, and increase crop yield is favoring the market growth. Other factors, including rapid infrastructural development activities, increasing investment by several regional governments in the development of smart cities, and the growing application of GIS in oil and gas exploration activities, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 2,146.7 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.9% during 2024-2032.
