Market Synopsis:

Geospatial technology consists of global positioning system (GPS), geographical information system (GIS), and remote sensing (RS). Along with government organizations and security firms, geospatial technologies are used by SMEs and large enterprises also to transform manually produced maps and records into their digital databases. Imagery analytics is one of the essential tools for geospatial applications. Geospatial imagery analytics are a set of solutions used to analyze and map images of geographies and locational component and support security and surveillance agencies to understand, track, and monitor any natural and unnatural potential threats or emergency situations

Global Geospatial Imagery Analytics market had a market value of USD 3.22 billion in 2017 and is estimated to reach USD 11.16 billion by 2023 at a 24.57% CAGR during the forecast period 2018–2023. The increasing use of location-based services, growing  requirement of geospatial analytics for security and surveillance applications, and development in big data technology are some of the majordriving forces of the market. However, stringent government rules and regulations for using geospatial information is one of the major factors hampering the market growth. Whereas, the integration of artificial intelligence and deep learning in geospatial applications is expected to develop lucrativegrowth opportunities for the market in the coming years. On the other hand, data security issues is one of the challenges faced by the market.

With increasing digitization and proliferation of smartphones, network connectivity, smart devices, and IoT, the variety and volume of both structured and unstructured data are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The unstructured data is growing through non-traditional data sources such as image, audio, and video files; the torrent of machine and sensor information generated by the Internet of Things, emails, and social media posts among others. Deep learning provides different solutions such as text mining, sentiment analytics, and pattern recognition, which has proposed to unlock the true potential of the increasing amount of unstructured data. The integration of deep learning algorithms with geospatial imagery analytics is expected to provide actionable insights by analyzing unstructured data.

Recent Developments:

  • In March 2018, Microsoft Corporation, in collaboration with Esri, introduced artificial intelligence-based geospatial analytics in its Azure products.  

  • In September 2018, DigitalGlobe, a vendor of geospatial imagery solutions, received a contract of USD 3.2 million from US defense advanced research projects agency (DARPA). Under this contract, DigitalGlobe has to provide an unclassified environment for geospatial cloud analytics platform. This platform, with the help of machine learning technology, is expected to help the military in getting real-time insights about the commercial data, that would help them in quick decision making.
