Aerial Imaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028

The global aerial imaging market size reached US$ 2.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 14.9% during 2023-2028.

Aerial imaging refers to the process of capturing photographs of the ground from a flying object, such as helicopters, fixed-wing aircrafts, balloons, parachutes, rockets and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). They are commonly used for getting insights regarding geospatial mapping, infrastructure planning, disaster management, ground surveillance and environmental monitoring. The imaging systems are equipped with Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) systems, 360-degree vision cameras and geographic systems. They provide spatial information about land cover, vegetation areas, soil maps and geological areas, which is used for analysis and strategic planning for urban settlements and route designing.

Aerial Imaging Market Trends:
Significant growth in the construction and tourism industries is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. In line with this, drones and other UAVs are used to get information for commercial, residential and industrial sectors to observe and obtain images for research and land-mapping remotely. In the construction industry, aerial imaging solutions are deployed for collecting topographical information and conducting site inspections. Furthermore, widespread adoption of location-based services is providing a boost to the market growth. Public and government organizations are using aerial imaging solutions for archeological and developing 360-degree panoramic interfaces. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as improvements in wireless technologies and integration with the Internet of Things (IoT)-based systems, are contributing to the global aerial imaging market growth. These technologies aid in obtaining high-quality images of the ground and spaces that are usually inaccessible. Other factors, including the increasing utilization of aerial imaging for defense applications and rising instances of natural calamities, such as earthquakes, fires, floods, cyclones and tornadoes, are projected to drive the market further.
