Region – North America and APEJ Key in Digital Elevation Model Market

The North America digital elevation model market is poised to increase 3X for the period 2017 to 2027 while APEJ is on track to grow 4.3X during the same timeframe. Incremental dollar opportunity of almost US$ 440 million is waiting to be tapped in the North America digital elevation model market. The US dominates North America and it wouldn’t be surprising if companies decided to overlook Canada entirely in favour of its southern neighbour.

Key Insights

North America and APEJ are poised to lead the revenue generation in the digital elevation model market for the foreseeable future. Companies are likely to focus on M&A and aggressive product launches to sustain their competitive position in the digital elevation model market. Along with this, companies are advised to enter into strategic alliances with governmental organizations to form standard solutions for improving efficiency and reducing costs as there is no such standard present across the globe today. An appropriate method and plan should be set up with governments to effectively deploy digital elevation models. With standardization in place, digital elevation models would assist in the analysis of fixed quantities and strengthen disaster management and environmental change detection.
