Geographic Information System (GIS) Market and Top Hardware Type
Total Station − A total station is a surveying equipment integrated with an electronic distance measurement (EDM), microprocessor, electronic data collector, and storage system. Total stations are designed to measure slant distances, horizontal angles, vertical angles, and elevations for surveying applications. Most of the GIS mapping work is performed by total stations. In modern surveying, two types of total stations are used— manual total stations and robotic total stations. Of these total stations, robotic total stations are in greater demand as they allow the operator or the user to control the instrument remotely. Surveyors and construction professionals are adopting total stations for high-precision surveying; this factor is thereby, driving the demand for total stations.
GIS Collectors − GIS collectors are used for collecting data related to shop floors or fields. Data collection is a real-time and event-oriented process carried out by construction professionals. GIS collectors derive data manually from a computer or directly from the place of their origin. GIS collectors allow construction professionals to carry out accurate measurements related to site reconnaissance, progress measurement, and site inspection. A few of these GIS collectors are integrated within cellular modems, GPS, cameras, and displays. Moreover, GIS collectors help in spatial analysis for manipulating, extracting, locating, and analyzing the geographic data. They are widely adopted for capturing, storing, recovering, analyzing, and displaying spatial data.
LIDAR − LIDAR, an acronym for light detection and ranging, is an optical remote sensing technique used to sample the surface of the earth. It is used to collect accurate data regarding the elevation, contour, and vegetation on ground surfaces. LIDAR is a highly accurate and cost-effective solution compared with traditional photogrammetry techniques of mapping. The major components of LIDAR include laser scanners, collection vehicles (aircraft or UAV), GPS, and inertial measurement units (IMU). LIDAR is mainly used for airborne laser mapping applications. Various types of LIDAR techniques are used for GIS data collection such as airborne LIDAR, terrestrial LIDAR, UAV LIDAR, and mobile LIDAR.
GNSS/GPS antenna - GNSS/GPS antenna is a critical component of the GNSS receiver module. GNSS/GPS antenna receives radio signals from satellites and converts them to electronic signals for use in a GNSS receiver module. GNSS receiver is used in numerous application sectors such as ground mapping, surveying, tracking, positioning, precision agriculture, and construction. GNSS/GPS high-precision antennas are used in challenging environments such as closed or covered areas to provide accurate location positioning. Trimble Inc. (US) and Leica Geosystems (Switzerland) are leading companies that provide GPS/GNSS antennas.
“GIS collectors to dominate the market for GIS hardware during the forecast period”
GIS users face challenges for data collection in closed or covered areas, such as dense forests. GIS collectors offer reliable and accurate data collection in these areas. Some of these GIS collectors are integrated with cellular modems, GPS, cameras, and displays. GIS collector hardware type is expected to dominate the GIS market during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for GIS collectors for data capturing and mapping in the agriculture, construction, and utility sectors. GIS collector offers field data collection in both online and offline mode. It also supports external GNSS/GPS receivers for improved spatial data collection.
“Transportation sector held the largest market size in the overall GIS market”
Transportation has created an ever-increasing demand for GIS-based technologies. With the emergence of telematics and navigation applications, GIS is expected to play a vital role in the transportation sector. GIS is adopted widely in the transportation industry for applications such as highway and roadway management, real-time traffic data monitoring, railway route planning, and transportation modeling.
“APAC expected to grow at the highest rate between 2020 and 2025”
APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing GIS market during the forecast period. In this region, geospatial technologies are being utilized for rural and agricultural development over the last decade. In APAC, companies across various sectors, such as architecture, engineering & construction, mining & manufacturing, and agriculture, are using GIS technologies to identify the potential markets and using geospatial information to make strategic decisions. Surveying and mapping technologies are used widely in the APAC region. In addition, the development of smart cities in China, India, and other Southeast Asian countries has driven demand for GIS in this region.
Major players involved in the GIS software market include Autodesk Inc. (US), Bentley System, Inc. (US), Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (Esri) (US), Hexagon AB (Sweden), Pitney Bowes Inc. (US), Topcon Corporation (Japan), and Trimble Inc. (US).
