Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is having a big impact on the market is the increase in use of GIS in water management. The GIS market in BRIC is observing an increase in use of GIS in water management. GIS-based systems are used for mapping water resources for agricultural and conservation purposes. It helps in creating agricultural water rights and tracking water right transaction.
GIS systems are used by the Kerala Water Authority in India for water loss management. In 2015, GIS analytics tools developed by Big Blue and IBM were used for monitoring water loss by the Kerala Water Authority. The state aims to achieve 100% success in equitable water supply within a few years with this initiative.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increase in the number of cloud GIS providers. Cloud integration is not a new feature in GIS. ArcGIS map services for cloud was introduced by Esri in 2012. However, recent years saw an increase in the number of smaller cloud GIS providers, which will continue to drive the market throughout the forecast period. One such player is GIS Cloud. The company is focused on providing cloud GIS solutions and has nearly 70,000 users and 450,000 maps. In terms of pricing, the company is very competitive. Map Editor, a cloud-based map tool provided by the company, costs only $55 per user per month, which is affordable by small and medium-sized enterprises. The company also provides a free version of the tool with a storage limit of 100 MB.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could curtail market growth is the lack of communication between developers and end-users.
