Global Geospatial Analytics Market to Reach US$ 174.2 Billion by 2027, Catalyzed by Emerging Military and Defense Applications

Published on Jul 18, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Geospatial Analytics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global geospatial analytics market size reached US$ 77.2 Billion in 2021. Geospatial analytics refers to collecting, manipulating, and analyzing geological data obtained from maps, graphs, statistics, and cartograms. It relies on technological solutions such as global positioning systems (GPS), 3D scanners, geotagging, location sensors, social media platforms, mobile devices, and satellite imaging solutions for surface analysis, network analysis, and data visualization. It adds timing and location to the real-time geospatial data to provide more accurate and detailed insights through visual patterns and images. As a result, geospatial analytics finds extensive applications across disaster management, environment monitoring, urban planning and development, natural resource exploration, and weather forecasting. 

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 Geospatial Analytics Market Trends:

The emerging military and defense applications of geospatial analytics represent the primary factor driving the market growth. In addition, with the growing geopolitical tensions and security concerns, there has been widespread adoption of geospatial analytics by military and defense organizations to improve situational awareness, detect cross-border infiltration, and enhance satellite monitoring of troops and enemy movements. Along with this, the increasing usage of geospatial analytics in geographic information systems (GIS) for weather modeling, population forecasting, and monitoring of retail sales trends has augmented product demand. Moreover, amid the sudden outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), governments of several countries are utilizing geospatial analytics to track the spread of the virus and monitor the affected areas in real-time. Besides this, the rising development of smart cities is another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, recent product innovations, such as the integration of connected devices with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies to facilitate image classification, object detection, semantic segmentation, and instance segmentation, have catalyzed market growth. Other factors, including the increasing penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT), supportive government initiatives, improving 5G infrastructure, and technological advancements, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 174.2 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 14.44% during 2022-2027.
