Aerial imaging is the process of taking images of the ground from an elevated position, generally from a camera not supported by a ground-based structure. Some of the commonly used platforms for aerial imaging include helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, multi-rotor unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), dirigibles and blimps, balloons, rockets, parachutes, kites, vehicle-mounted poles, and stand-alone telescoping. Aerial imagery or photography provides effective solutions that combine cost-effectiveness and high precision for planning purposes, volume calculations, route design, or merely to renew existing mapping. The global Aerial Imaging market was valued at US$ 1,077.7 Mn in 2014 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 13.5% from 2015 to 2023 reaching a value of US$ 3,341.7 Mn in 2023.
The growing footprint of aerial imaging solutions across various applications such as cartography, defense and security, construction and development, and intelligence surveillance, among others is one of the important factors bolstering the growth of the aerial imaging market. Furthermore, the growing popularity of location-based services and various technological developments in the field of advanced aerial camera systems and platforms is expected to propel market demand throughout the forecast period.
