Prominent Drivers Influencing Geospatial Solutions Market Growth

Rising Penetration of AI and ML-based Geographic Information Systems

Recent years have witnessed increasing collaboration of artificial intelligence, machine learning and geographic information systems (GIS). While GIS is a powerful technology with extensive data sets and a wide range of AI applications, artificial intelligence provides advanced methods for GIS projects. AI GIS is an amalgamation of AI technology and various GIS processes, such as spatial data analysis algorithms (GeoAI) that combine AI technology, as well as for a series of AI and GIS-enabled technologies.

Applying AI GIS to enhance and maintain the next stage of evolution of GIS technology systems is an efficient way to address the current intelligent problem of GIS systems. AI GIS first started to realize computer vision extraction of geographic information from satellite imagery images and videos. Furthermore, AI technologies such as voice recognition and speech synthesis can be launched, allowing for greater empowerment.

These capabilities, combined with geospatial data, provide enhanced insights to organizations. Geospatial analytics solution providers, such as ESRI and SAP, are deploying AI and ML technology-based solutions to provide enhanced insights to organizations. In recent years, deployment of drones and satellite imagery have enhanced significantly. For instance, in 2020, MicroMultiCopter (Shenzhen) deployed more than 100 drones in different Chinese cities to patrol areas and efficiently detect crowds and traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rising Adoption of 5G Connectivity and Communications Technology

As 5G technology can be used to collect highly accurate geospatial data, the deployment of 5G network services is expected to create new opportunities for geospatial analytics vendors. The 5G network would work on mainly three bands: low-band, mid-band, and high-band spectrum.

The low-band spectrum can also be described as sub 1GHz spectrum. It is primarily the spectrum band used by carriers and quickly becomes depleted. The mid-band spectrum provides faster coverage and lower latency than a low band. However, a mid-band spectrum fails to penetrate buildings compared to a low-band spectrum.

A high-band spectrum is often referred to as mmWave. It can offer peak speeds up to 10 GBPS and has low latency. 5G requires small cells for the deployment as they help in making connection between users and 5G transceiver towers. In the near future, 5G networks are expected to provide the positioning of devices due to large antenna arrays and wide bandwidths. These would have highly accurate Direction-of-Arrival (DOA) and Time-of-Arrival (TOA) estimation, especially in Line of Sight (LOS) conditions. Geospatial data plays a key role in the deployment of 5G infrastructure.

Key Restraints/Challenges to Market Expansion

Heightened Concerns about Geoprivacy and Data Confidentiality

Government regulations restricting access to individual location data without permission of the user as well as individual concerns related to privacy of their location-based data play a key role in the collection of location-based data. Individuals can deny permission to collect relevant information, which is essential for some of the geospatial analytics applications.

The European Union (EU) GDPR is a unified attempt by the EU that focuses on safeguarding the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of citizens. Companies collecting the data need to comply with the regional regulations and get the necessary consent from the individual user.

This limits the availability of the user location data with organizations, thereby limiting the effectiveness of the geospatial data analytics solutions, which is expected to restrict the growth of the geospatial analytics market in upcoming years.

Limited Awareness of Capabilities and Benefits of Geospatial Solutions

Several organizations are not aware of the benefits of geospatial analytics solutions that can be used in various business applications; hence, uptake is still quite limited in several industries.

Implementing geospatial analytics requires a comprehensive understanding of the particular application area of business and knowledge of the full potential capabilities of geospatial analytics solutions. Geospatial data along with BI supports better business decision-making, leading to new revenue opportunities, improved cost visibility, and better risk management.

Geospatial analytics solution providers can overcome this challenge by proactively increasing the awareness related to the benefits of using geospatial analytics across verticals.

Country-wise Analysis

What is the Scope for Geospatial Solutions in the U.S?

Extensive Reliance on Remote Sensing Technology Widening Uptake

The geospatial solutions industry in the U.S is expected to reach US$ 475 Bn in value terms by 2032-end. Growth is attributed to high adoption of remote sensing capabilities by notable end use industries, including utilities, transportation, defence & intelligence and infrastructure development. Drone, aerial, and satellite imagery and other types of remotely sensed data are opening new frontiers in nearly every facet of life. 

Deploying powerful mapping, geospatial analytics, geospatial artificial intelligence and modeling tools have come a long way in improving remote sensing capacities in the country in recent years. Among all industries, geospatial solutions have proven highly useful in strengthening defence and military capacities across the U.S. Given the substantially high budget allocation for strengthening defence capabilities, demand for defence geospatial solutions is rising impressively.

In December 2021, the U.S Senate voted to pass approximately US$ 770 Billion defence spending bill for FY 2022, which aims to strengthen surveillance and monitoring capacities. Players such as ESRI are already active in this domain, offering the ArcGIS platform, capable of mapping, analyzing, visualizing and sharing imagery and raster data to derive richer insights. The U.S is likely to generate an absolute opportunity worth US$ 342 Bn until 2032.

How is the U.K Generating Demand for Geospatial Solutions Uptake?

Strengthening Internal Security, Swift Urbanization Driving Market Demand

According to Fact.MR, geospatial solutions are forecast to exhibit high demand across the U.K. This is attributed to the presence of developed infrastructure for defense and internal security and rapid urbanization. In June 2020, UK launched geospatial strategy that unlock opportunities from location data. This strategy is expected to help develop the UK’s location data framework across the next half-a-decade, in concurrence with the UN’s Integrated Geospatial Information Framework (IGIF). 

As per the Geospatial Commission of the U.K, the country is expected to develop a coherent national location data framework. This is based on the belief that future technologies will be underpinned by data about events occurring at a time and place. Location data will offer a unifying connection between things, systems, people and the environment. Valuable data that currently sits locked in silos will be easy to access and combine securely to create new insights.

Hence, several service providers are seeking out business across the country. Some prominent regional geospatial solution providers include Beeline, City Mapper, Gather, Geolytix, iGeolise, Navmi and Open Cage Data Ltd. By 2032, the U.K market for geospatial solutions is expected to flourish at a CAGR of 12.7% to be valued at US$ 57 Bn.
