Global Aerial Imaging Market 2017-2021
About Aerial Imaging
Aerial imaging is all about ground surface images, which are taken from an elevated surface with the use of cameras. These cameras are mounted on different air vehicles such as airships, balloons, helicopters, kites, and UAVs for taking images. Aerial imaging processing is done using few patented technologies to deliver the finest quality and detail of every feature. Web-based access and tools enable easy view and analysis of images and information.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global aerial imaging market to grow at a CAGR of 15.79% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global aerial imaging market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Aerial Imaging Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global aerial imaging market: Cooper Aerial, Fugro, Kucera International, and BLOMASA.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AirFotos, ARC Aerial Imaging, Bluesky International, Coptercam, Digital Aerial Solutions, GeoVantage, Getmapping, HALO Aerial Imaging, High Eye Aerial Imaging, McKenzie Geospatial Surveys, Midwest Aerial Photography, Ocuair, Ofek, and PROPELLERHEADS AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Aerial thermal surveys. Thermal camera combined with a range of colorful cameras can capture high resolution thermal images. Thermal imaging services can assist with biosecurity and pest monitoring. Thermal imaging is highly used for surveying and mapping activities. Aerial survey and mapping techniques can identify heat sources over large areas and record the temperatures. This information is ideal for applications in the coal industry, which provides highly accurate information with georeferenced thermal orthomosaics. Aerial thermal inspection and survey-mapping services are used in applications, including mining, oil and gas, power generation and transmission, land use and thermal loading, and solar panel inspections.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Infrastructure resilience using GIS technology. Several disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, floods, fires, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and cyclones create huge property and infrastructure loss. Remote sensing and GIS act as effective tools for disaster management. Remotely sensed aerial data can be used to assess severity and impact of damage due to these disasters. GIS helps in planning evacuation routes, designing centers for emergency operations, and designing disaster warning systems during the disaster preparedness stage. Also, GIS can be used in managing the huge amount of data required for vulnerability and hazard assessment during the disaster prevention stage.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Inaccuracy in image data collection. Most low-cost drones are not as reliable as manned aircraft and have a much higher crash rate. Positional inaccuracy is a great concern in GIS, which can affect many different characteristics of the information stored in a database. The non-spatial data linked to location can also be inaccurate or imprecise. Ecological monitoring requires detailed information over broad spatial scales. Factors such as scene contrast and atmospheric clarity can affect the resolution of aerial photographs. Scanning at a low resolution resulting in the loss of information and high scanning resolution leads to enormous size digital files with large storage requirements.
