Global Aerial Imagery Market- Overview

Aerial imagery involves taking pictures of an aerial view through flying objects, such as aircraft, balloons, blimps, parachutes, etc. Normally, aircraft are used for generating highly accurate images. Typically, this is used to map a geographical or physical location topologically or object from a bird's eye view. The aerial imagery is used to collect vital information intended for various purposes, including agricultural management, land use, urban planning, forestry, etc.

Global Aerial Imagery Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Growing Aerial Imagery Application in The Construction Industry

The construction industry is emerging as one of the leading sectors for the adoption of aerial imagery. Contractors are increasingly deploying drones to collect real-time data pertaining to a site and design a building or project accordingly. Additionally, aerial imagery can keep track of progress and detect problems or issues in advance. Engineers are also using aerial imagery for estimating and minimizing overall costs. With increasing construction activities, especially in developing countries, the demand for aerial imagery is anticipated to rise, propelling the overall market growth.

Research and Development Activities in Aerial Imagery

Both public and private entities are researching aerial imagery due to its significant growth potential. R&D activities are focused on advancing aerial imagery technology and expanding its applications in various industries. For instance, recent research published in Nature Communications indicated that aerial imagery could be used to protect food crops from pathogen attacks like Xylella fastidiosa (Xf). The aerial imagery can achieve 92% accuracy in detecting Xf and can also assist in eradicating it.

Restraints

Restrictions on Non-Government Applications of Drones

Several regions and countries have imposed strict bans on the commercial use of drones for security reasons. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, Iran, and several states in the United States, including California, Kentucky, Michigan, West Virginia, etc., forbid its use over private properties and public facilities such as railroads, utilities, defense, etc., which limit their use in various applications. As a result, such restrictions act as a major restraint on the growth of the global aerial imagery market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Aerial Imagery Market

The sudden outbreak of the COVD-19 pandemic has had a mixed influence on the global aerial imagery market. On one hand, the operations of various end-user industries, such as oil & gas, construction, aerospace, etc., were halted by the lockdown imposed by the countries and shortage of workforce. However, the market gained significant traction in the government sector as they began using aerial imagery for urban mapping purposes to establish temporary medical facilities and testing centers, which spurred the overall market growth.

Global Aerial Imagery Market - By Platform-Type

Based on platform types, the global aerial imagery market is segmented into fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, UAVs/drones, and other platform types. Among these, the UAVS/drones account for the largest market share. The adoption of UAVs/drones is gaining significant traction due to its adoption across various sectors, including agriculture and defense intelligence. The drone is a crewless aircraft equipped with state-of-the-art technology such as infrared and digital cameras that can be operated via remote control.

Global Aerial Imagery Market - By Application

Based on applications, the global aerial imagery market is segmented into geospatial mapping, surveillance & monitoring, asset inventory management, infrastructure planning, environmental monitoring, disaster management, national & urban mapping, and other applications. The national & urban mapping segment holds the largest market share because of its prominent use among local and state governments. Urban mapping is used for infrastructure planning, such as designing the layout, prescribing densities of residential, commercial, and industrial areas to exploit maximum efficiency of the land.

Global Aerial Imagery Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global aerial imagery market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. North America dominates the global aerial imagery market owing to the increase in usage of aerial imagery for mapping sky-rise buildings, dams, and oils & gas plants in the region. A growing urban population and increasing investment in smart cities in the region is boosting the markets for aerial imagery. Moreover, increasing expenditure on defense is anticipated to drive the region’s growth during the forecast period.
