Based on application, Defense & Security segment is projected to lead the market during the forecast period.

Defense & security is one of the main verticals that use geospatial technologies in their operational activities. GIS, GPS, IoT, and remote sensing are used in defense operations such as command & control, force protection & security, intelligence, surveillance, military engineering, mission planning, data modeling, simulation, training, terrain analysis, visualization, and naval operations.

Crime mapping can be done using GIS and satellite imagery, allowing analysts to spot patterns in the occurrence of crimes, as well as trends and escape routes used by criminals. Additionally, GIS tools can be used with AI to predict areas that are vulnerable to attack.

Based on end use, military & government segment is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period

The innovation of remote sensing technology plays a vital role in defense forces. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have provided essential and accurate information to military operations. Military commanders' concept of Command, Control, Coordination, and Communication depends largely on spatial data from GIS.

Battlefield management is a system that integrates, monitors, and processes information to enhance efficient command and control military operations. Remote sensing technology has changed the way battles are planned during wars. The military commander in the battle uses spatial data and GIS systems for digital mapping, planning for battlefield operations, and command control.

Satellites owned by private companies have played an unexpectedly important role in the war in Ukraine in early August 2022.

Based on type, aerial photography & remote sensing segment to have highest market share in 2022

Aerial photography is being used widely for archaeological purposes due to the fact that remote sensing data helps to recognize site locations and record and monitor changes in their landscapes through time. It is also used to discover subsurface features by means of the topsoil characteristics or by stereoscopic examination of images. Inspection of low-altitude oblique and vertical photographs can detect textural soil variations, such as shadow marks, crop marks, and soil marks; most of which are caused by the disturbances of the soil's matrix by the presence of underground features and the corresponding differences in moisture conditions.
