Few key trends impelling North America aerial imaging industry demand are as follows:

Escalating use of geospatial mapping software to drive aerial imaging market outlook

The extensive utilization of geospatial mapping software and aerial imaging services in organizations for the visualization of huge volumes of data sets to make informed decisions on the basis of geography will boost the market growth through the forecasted period. The geospatial mapping segment accounted for a dominant share of more than 33 per cent in 2017 and is estimated to hold a lucrative share of over 28 per cent in the North America aerial imaging market through 2024.

U.S. to contribute a significant share to North America aerial imaging market value

The U.S. is anticipated to account for a major share in the North America aerial imaging industry in the light of soaring investments by manufacturers in the area of drone technology. Meanwhile, tech companies in the country are also entering into collaborations with global UAV players for the expansion of their aerial imaging services.

Citing an instance, Microsoft Corporation entered into a partnership with DJI in May 2018 for integrating the machine learning capacities of Microsoft into DJI’s commercial drones. The newly developed SDK for Windows 10 is one of the latest advancements in aerial imaging technology and has been equipped for providing complete control and data transfer to Windows 10 PCs, facilitating the direct connection of drones with computers.

Government sector to exhibit appreciable growth in the North America aerial imaging industry

The rising number of efforts by various government agencies towards the development and utilization of modern UAVs is likely to augment North America aerial imaging market size over the forthcoming years. The government sector is anticipated to hold a major share of over 23 per cent in the aerial imaging industry through 2024.
