Geographic Information System (GIS) Market by Component (Hardware (GIS Collector, Total Station, LIDAR, GNSS Antenna) & Software), Function (Mapping, Surveying, Telematics and Navigation, Location-Based Service), End User - Global Forecast to 2023

“Geographic information system (GIS) market to exhibit significant growth potential between 2017 and 2023”
The GIS market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% between 2017 and 2023 to reach USD 10.12 billion by 2023. The key driving factors for the growth of the market are the development of smart cities and urbanization, integration of geospatial technology with mainstream technologies for business intelligence, and growing adoption of geospatial solutions in transportation. However, the high cost associated with GIS solutions and geospatial data barriers poses major restraining factors for the growth of this market.

“GIS software to hold the largest share during the forecast period”
The software market is expected to exhibit a significant growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing use of GIS software in urban planning, disaster management, transport management, and smart city development. The geospatial software provides analytic tools and functions to input and stores spatial geographic data. It provides a tool to perform a geographic query, runs analysis model, and displays geographic data in the form of maps. The software uses relation database management system (RDBMS) to store the geographic data. The geospatial software integrates digital maps and data to create visualization and analysis tools. In addition, the integration of GIS with CRM and ERP has increased the use for business intelligence and marketing for better decision-making.

“Location-based services function is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
Location-based services (LBS) function provides real-time geographic data and information via handheld devices such as mobile phones and tablets. The market for LBS is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period owing to the widespread adoption of mobile GIS applications and extensive use of LBS for advertising, logistics, asset tracking and governance. GIS are important LBS applications, as these provide accurate positioning and real-time information via mobile-networked environments. GIS-based LBS help users by providing real-time information such as real-time traffic conditions, emergency services, city routes, point of interest (POI), and public transport schedules. The rapid evolution of smartphones and availability of fast wireless internet connectivity is further expected to drive the growth of the LBS function during the forecast period.

“The market for transportation is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
The market for transportation is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. GIS is gaining traction in transportation applications such as transportation planning, highway maintenance, traffic modeling, accident analysis, and route planning. GIS helps transportation planners to store and analyze geospatial data as well as mapping of transportation features with a base map. GIS plays a significant role in highway infrastructure management and development of roads, bridges, and railway routes. Construction of roadways and highways requires accurate land-based information for their planning and construction. GIS offers integration of various data types of information such as spatial and nonspatial data required for highway and roadway construction.

“North America is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period”
North America region is expected to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period. In North America, Geospatial technologies are extensively used in applications such as construction, agriculture, transportation, and utilities. The government sector is one of the significant adopters of geospatial technologies in North America. The increase in demand for location-based services and high penetration of geospatial solutions in building information modeling, real-time traffic data, precision farming, utility management, and environmental monitoring are expected to drive the growth of the market in this region during the forecast period.
