Research and Markets: Aerial Imaging Market Forecasts & Opportunities 2013 - 2019

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/56tbwq/aerial_imaging) has announced the addition of the "Aerial Imaging Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.

The global aerial imaging market, valued at USD 869.2 million in 2012, is expected to see strong growth at 12.8% CAGR during 2013 to 2019 period.

The global aerial imaging market consists of many renowned players such as BLOM ASA, Fugro EarthData, Inc. and Pictometry International Corp., among others. Of these, BLOM ASA and Fugro EarthData, Inc. accounted for maximum revenue share, collectively accounted for approximately 40% of the global aerial imaging market revenue.

Aerial imagery finds widespread applications in cartography, natural resources management, archeology, and disaster risk reduction and prevention, among others. Factors such as rising number of applications, increasing popularity of location based services and technological developments (camera systems and aerial platforms) are responsible for driving the growth of aerial imagery market.

The market is segmented on basis of application types, end-users, and geographic regions. In 2012, the defense and intelligence segment dominated the global aerial imaging market. Due to increased awareness and availability of high resolution aerial imagery from various suppliers, the usage of aerial imagery in this sector is growing rapidly. Among the potential end-use segments, the highest revenue share of 27.4% was contributed by the government sector in 2012. Government organizations worldwide have started using aerial imagery and related services for several purposes such as homeland security, demographic planning, and to monitor and manage environmental changes, among others.

By geography, North America dominated the market in 2012 followed by Europe and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to the growing UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) based aerial imaging systems demand. This demand is further supported by UAV companies in North America, which after realizing high revenues during war-days (Afghanistan, Iraq, and other Middle East disturbances), are now diversifying into commercial imaging and other geo-spatial remote sensing services market. Even the growing demand for aerial imagery from agricultural and forestry end-use sector is expected to contribute to the growth of North American market. However, obstacles such as privacy, national security concerns, and operational limitations (adverse weather condition, time delays and risk of life) are hindering market growth.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
