Global aerial imagery market to reach $4,169.1 million by 2024
Global Aerial Imagery Market accounted for revenue of around $1,800 million in 2017 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of above 12% during the forecast period. The aerial imagery market is expected to witness high growth as it provides an instantaneous view which is necessarily required for town planning or construction of any water or thermal based project. Aerial imagery offers improved vantage point, which provides a bird-eye view of large areas to see features of the earth’s surface in their spatial context. It also provides time freezing ability by recording the exposure instance of the earth surface. In addition, aerial imagery uses broad sensitivity of the film for capturing quality images that cannot be perceived through human eyes.
Increased usage of Drone-based technology driving the aerial imagery market across the globe
The market for Aerial Imagery is witnessing a comparable disruption as drone-based technology is reshaping the industry landscapes and is getting widely-adopted across sectors- from agriculture to defence intelligence. Increased usage of drone for urban planning, forestry and geology are anticipated to drive the demand for the aerial imagery market. Drone is an unmanned aircraft which is equipped with different state of the art technology such as infrared and digital cameras that can be controlled by a remote control system. Drones are not required to carry data links that add weight and complexity, and are thus, used by various government authorities to create maps instead of relying on central mapping authorities (manual mapping). Drones are gaining adoption in construction sites as they provide a full view of the infrastructure from different angles to make strategic decisions for mapping roads, parking, and open space. Large scale capital projects and infrastructure maintenance are getting benefitted from aerial imagery conducted through drones, which are also known as UAV. Images collected through drones not only perform hazardous work but also make it easy for businesses to acquire image sets with great precision and in a cost-effective manner.
