Of the two imaging types, the market for geospatial video analytics is expected to witness faster growth during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the rising demand of video analytics in government as well as non-government sectors, and advent of industrial automation.

On the basis of analysis, the geospatial imagery analytics market is categorized into geovisualization, network analysis, and surface analysis. Among these, geovisualization has been generating the highest revenue in the market till now. On the basis of vertical, government has been generating the highest revenue in the market so far. This can be attributed to the fact that this technology helps government bodies with a number of planning decisions such as city planning and disaster management.

APAC to be the fastest growing market

During the forecast period, APAC is expected to lead the geospatial imagery analytics market in terms of growth. The increasing number of internet users due to the rising adoption of connected devices is likely to offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of this market in the region. According to a report published by Cisco Visual Networking Index (Cisco VNI) - 2016, APAC will account for over 53% of the global internet population by the end of 2020.

Technological advancements in geospatial imagery analytics is the key growth driver

Advancements in this field is a key factor driving the growth of the geospatial imagery analytics market. Generally, when images are captured by various collection mediums, they are manually processed for analyzing any pattern or demographic change in large datasets. It only makes the process slow, monotonic, and complex. To overcome this, market players are integrating artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, and big data technologies with geospatial imagery analytics. As these technologies enable a faster and more efficient analysis of data, vendors are increasingly integrating these technologies into their offerings to deliver knowledgeable insights in less time.

Rising use of LBS is offering lucrative opportunity for market players

The use of location-based services (LBS) is growing rapidly. As per a study, the number of LBS users in the U.S. increased from around 196 million in 2016 to nearly 219 million in 2017. Internet connected devices come with location-based features, which help consumers in the interpretation of real-time maps into useful insights. As LBS relies on the use of this technology, the growing preference for and adoption of LBS acts as an opportunity for the growth of geospatial imagery analytics market.
