Global GIS market to register double digit growth during 2017- 2023

The global GIS market is expected to increase from $8,985.5 million in 2016, to reach $17,510.9 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 10.1% during 2017 – 2023. Among the various application areas, government sector has been the largest contributor to the global GIS market, accounting for over 28% of the global revenue in 2016. Increasing urbanization, in addition to the surging adoption of enterprise GIS in developing countries is expected to bolster the demand for geographic information system during the forecast period.

During the recent years, demand for 3D based GIS has increased, owing to the development of smart cities in China, India, and other South East Asian countries, majorly for building surveillance application. According to Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri), the adoption of 3D based urban mapping is witnessing rapid growth, owing to the adoption of 3D mapping in smart cities. The modern GIS maps are developed in a way that new data can be added, as becomes available, and hence the transition from 2D based maps to 3D maps is gaining pace. The real estate companies utilize 3D based information to leverage marketing opportunities, as providing line of sight visualization in any direction from any location in a building, which is further giving competitive advantage to the real estate developers.

Insights on market segments

Based on our analysis, medium and small size projects (valued less than $1million) together accounted over 75% of the global GIS market in 2016. The market for medium size projects (ranging from $250,000 to $1 million) is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecast period.

Increasing investment in GIS based infrastructure pushing GIS revenues

The global GIS market is witnessing increasing investment by the governments for application in homeland security, and military and aerospace sector. Over the years, several GIS vendors have also come up with innovative products to suit the requirements of the governments in developing countries. Recently, the Government of India started Digital India initiative, where the government along with the private sector companies is expected to invest heavily in improving internet connectivity and location based services infrastructure across the country, during in the next five to six years. The country is also expected to develop a GIS based data for land records, land management and ownership details in the country. The Government of India has included “National GIS Vision” in its 12th five-year plan (2012 – 2017), under which the government is expected to explore the potential untapped opportunities for GIS implementation.

In the U.S., ESRI and the federal government runs a GIS program, which provides GIS software and services for employees of the U.S. federal government, including U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. Department of the Interior, and U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Chinese government introduced a national street-level mapping project for routing vehicles in mainland China.

The cost of GIS implementation has also reduced marginally over the last few years, which is expected to boost the market in cost sensitive developing countries, during the forecast period.

Increasing demand of 3D GIS for urban development

The 3D based virtual reality geographic information systems (VRGIS) have been getting popular in city planning and urban development in developing countries. The three-dimensional geographic information system facilitates an improved and detail insight into the complex database of GIS. Moreover, the advanced projection based displays enable urban planners to design 3D based virtual models. Many 3D based GIS applications, such as storm water run-off studies and building surveillance, are experiencing high penetration in developed countries. According to Environmental Systems Research Institute Inc. (ESRI), 3D based urban mapping is witnessing rapid growth owing to the conversion of 2D to 3D mapping of smart cities. The modern GIS maps are constructed in a way that new data can be added as it becomes available, and hence the transition from 2D based map to 3D map is gaining pace. Apart from the urban planning, the 3D based GIS market is also witnessing fast growth in flood modeling, transportation, and census.

Real estate companies utilize 3D base information to leverage marketing opportunity, by providing line of sight visualization in any direction from any location in a building; thus, offering competitive advantage to the real estate developers.

Asia-Pacific to register the fastest growth during the forecast period

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing GIS market during the forecast period, owing to the increasing penetration of GIS solutions in sectors such as utility, government, and water and waste water, in developing countries of the region, including India and China. The upsurge in urbanization along with investment in smart cities in the region is expected to bolster the demand for GIS solutions in the coming years.
