Geographic Information System Market By Product, Application, Region – Forecast 2024

Based on the end-use, the Geographic Information System Market can be segmented into telecommunications, waste and water management, aerospace & defense, engineering & business services, transportation and oil & gas. The trend of rising government investment across homeland security, military, and aerospace sector is fueling the demand for advanced technologies resulting in high growth in GIS market across the globe. In addition, various vendors have also come up with technologically advanced products to cater the requirements of the governments in developing economies.

Geographic Information System (GIS) Market size is expected to grow owing to rising urbanization and the development of smart cities. The integration of the geospatial technology is driven by the demand for the building surveillance in the smart cities which helps in maintaining the upkeep of the building by looking after the security or sanitation needs. In addition, it also helps in effective land management due to its ability to deliver valuable information associated with the land registration details, vacant land area, and mining activities.

The growing demand for location analytics will offer growth avenues for the GIS market. This is due to rising demand to obtain insights from location-based or geographic data by integrating the conventional data with the spatial data that helps in identifying and evaluating data as well as activities. Traditionally, the technology was utilized as a map-based system but now it is being utilized to offer a full system of insights to help the businesses obtain full awareness of their businesses, which will drive the GIS market. In addition, the demand for location analytics is growing among businesses owing to the growing need for improvised operational efficiency, better decision-making techniques. High initial cost associated with the implementation of the software along with lack of awareness about the advantage of using the technology in business is expected to limit the GIS market growth.
