SELLBYVILLE, Del., July 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --  

The latest forecast report says, "Aerial Imaging Market revenue is predicted to be valued USD 4 billion by 2024." Aerial imaging is the process of taking images/photographs from a point in the air using different imaging platforms such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, along with traditional platforms such as kites, parachutes, blimps & balloons, and hand-held or vehicle-mounted poles. Aerial imaging is a useful tool for studying the changes on the earth's surface over a period of time. The images are particularly useful in analyzing land use and land cover and for comparing the newly recorded data with older data sets.

The aerial imaging market is projected to exhibit a robust growth with a CAGR of around 13% between 2018 and 2024. The growth can be attributed to the factors such as increasing adoption of UAVs for aerial imaging applications, rising incidents of natural disasters, technological advancements in aerial camera systems, and increasing uptake of aerial imaging platforms in the military and defense sectors for surveillance and monitoring purposes.

Also, the adoption of aerial imaging platforms in the government sector for applications such as environmental studies, homeland security, research initiatives, and urban planning is witnessing a steady uptake. Moreover, with the growing popularity of smart cities, aerial photography is likely to play an important role in facilitating the improved management of urban infrastructure in a highly connected and centrally-managed ecosystem.

Aerial images are basically captured in two formats, vertical and oblique images. Vertical images are the most common types of aerial images used for aerial survey and remote sensing purposes. They are more valuable for depicting streets and location of open spaces in the surrounding area. Oblique images are more useful for capturing the appearance of buildings as they are captured from an angle and offer a better perspective. The determination of feature elevation can be more accurate using oblique images as compared to the vertical ones, acquired at the same focal length. Consequently, the uptake of oblique aerial photography is expected to increase significantly between 2018 and 2024.

The competition in the aerial imaging market is driven by technological innovations in drone technology as well as sensor technologies for facilitating the acquisition of high-level aerial images. Due to the aggressive expansion and product development initiatives undertaken by the UAV/drone manufacturers, the competition in the aerial imaging market is expected to intensify over the forecast timeline. Also, with the growing utility of aerial imaging in emerging applications, such as urban planning and disaster management, the demand for imaging services and platforms will increase considerably between 2018 and 2024. Consequently, the companies will take measures to modernize their imaging platforms and offer enhanced and affordable imaging services to their customers.
