Aerial Imaging Market by End User (Government, Military & defence, Energy and resource management, Agriculture & forestry, Civil engineering, Commercial, Media & entertainment) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014 - 2022
Aerial imaging is the process of capturing images of ground surfaces with the help of cameras attached to vehicles, such as helicopters, parachutes, aircraft, kites, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), balloons, vehicle-mounted poles, and airships. Aerial imaging helps in risk mitigation, resource planning, mapping, research and excavation, security and surveillance, urban planning, engineering, farming management, tourism, and others.
The adoption of aerial imagery services has increased owing to its various applications such as photogrammetric surveys, development of topographic maps, environmental studies, surveillance, and others. Increased application areas among various verticals, such as agriculture, forestry, energy & resource, and civil engineering is expected to drive the market growth. In addition, increase in market for location based services such as e-commerce companies, food delivery and shopping apps, tourism websites, social networking apps, and others are expected to supplement the aerial imaging market growth. However, stringent government regulations regarding national security and satellite imagery as a substitute option are expected to hamper the market growth. Technological advancements such as advanced motion & temperature sensors in cameras, 3D mapping software, unmanned aerial vehicles, and others have created ample opportunities for the market growth.
