Aerial Imaging Market Outlook, Trends, Size and Growth to 2025

New technological developments boost demand in Global Aerial Imaging Market

Market Overview:

The global aerial imaging market is expected to record a CAGR of 14.5% during the outlook period (2020-2025).

Aerial imaging provides images of land surfaces captured from an elevated location using cameras. Cameras mounted on various aerial vehicles, including helicopters, airships, kites, balloons, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are used to take images. Aerial imaging finds wide application in various vertical industries such as civil engineering, research, government, agriculture, and others.

Recent Developments:

Aero-Metric, a leading provider of professional geospatial services with sites throughout the United States, has acquired its third Intergraph® Z / I Imaging (DMC®) digital mapping camera to expand its high-quality aerial imaging capabilities.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

The advent of technological developments such as the Internet of Things (IoT), LiDAR systems, GIS (geographic information system) and 360-degree vision cameras have boosted the global aerial imaging market. For example, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones are examples of aerial imagery that are gaining popularity in various end-user industries. Aerial imaging is crucial in applications like forestry, mining, oil and gas exploration, disaster management, etc., to plan strategies in advance. The application of GPS and inertial technology to create a detailed and accurate three-dimensional set of points or 3D point cloud models has gained popularity in global industrial sectors. Furthermore, with the rules to simplify aerial imaging, the studied market should see significant growth.

However, satellite imagery as an alternative option is expected to limit the growth of the aerial imagery market. Advanced technologies, including GIS (Geographic Information System), LiDAR systems and 360-degree vision cameras, are supposed to create significant opportunities for the aerial imaging market.

Impact of COVID-19:

Because of the negative effect of coronavirus, a portion of the non-clinical manufacturing organizations have begun producing clinically related items, for example, masks, ventilators, and related segments, sanitizer, and others. This has led to the declined revenue in the aerial imaging business, which is supposed to expand in the coming years.
