Global GIS Industry Continues to Grow


The latest, a May 2017 report from P&S Market Research, has determined that the global GIS industry will continue to grow. According to the report, the industry has seen an increased market demand of LiDAR based applications and an explosive use in spatial technologies and data.

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technique that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. LiDAR technology is now heavily used in developing 3-D presentations.  The technology has become the cornerstone of “smart-city” concept which is being adopted massively in major developing countries.

The leading countries which have fueled this growth and which are also adopting GIS for climate change/carbon management, agriculture, forestry, disaster management etc. are China, Brazil and India.
