The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Digital Map Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025”, finds that the global digital map market size reached US$ 7.8 Billion in 2019. A digital map is an electronic map based on a combination of graphic elements processed into digital cartographic data. The creation of a high-quality digital map requires cartographic skills and resources, along with the know-how and experience in the field of geoinformatics. A digital map is dynamic, which helps individuals view the previous versions of the represented area, unlike paper maps. Digital maps are also more accurate, scalable, up-to-date and interactive than printed maps. As a result, they are widely used in smart parking, location, traffic and congestion intelligence, navigation, and logistics management.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Digital Map Market Trends:
Digital maps are increasingly being utilized in the construction and engineering sectors to help construction engineers implement adequate safety measures in buildings and visualize territorial data for efficient infrastructural planning. Besides this, the rapid adoption of 3D platforms for surveying and digital mapmaking is contributing to the market. These 3D maps are made using high-quality geographic data, which helps create 3D visualizations, run simulations, and develop dynamic location-based experiences and games to enhance the customer experience. Apart from this, with the rising penetration of smartphones and other portable devices, users are relying more on mapping applications such as Google Maps and City mapper for locations and directions or searching restaurants, banks, ATMs, or gas stations. This has escalated the demand for digital maps across the globe. Moreover, the leading companies are offering traffic updates, roadblocks, updated places of interest, landmarks, and others in their maps, which makes them more user-friendly. Looking forward, the market is expected to witness strong growth during the forecast period (2020-2025).
