Key Factors Shaping the Digital Elevation Model Market

  • Rampant Infrastructural Developments

    Infrastructural development and urbanization in developing regions are expected to propel the digital elevation model market growth across the globe. Digital elevation models are used for infrastructure planning and mapping, urban environmental planning to assess construction, road design and construction for transportation, drainage, and green landscaping. It also helps in infrastructural construction, maintenance and management such as highways, airport, and railroad track inspection. Furthermore, the market is projected to experience a significant growth over the forecast period, owing to several factors such as increasing demand for high-voltage power line and pipeline maintenance, waterway maintenance, other layout, and construction of infrastructures.

  • Increased Application in Video Games

    A map generally constitutes of elements in many games, especially video games. Games that are played through mobile devices and computers consist of various 2D and 3D terrain models that use various GIS technologies, spatial datasets, and cartographic methodology. Adoption of games with better map resolution is gaining traction among youths, globally. This is made possible through digital elevation model. This factor is expected to drive the global digital elevation model market growth during the forecast period.

    Many gaming companies such as EA sport and various other PC gaming companies are focusing on war games with better resolution and actual mapping, which are made possible by the usage of digital elevation model.

  • Growing Adoption for Monitoring Sea Level in Coastal Areas

    The demand for digital elevation model in coastal areas to manage reliable technological advances in mapping and monitoring, and assessment of coastal climate change impacts are expected to further accelerate the growth of the digital elevation model market throughout the forecast period. The need for monitoring sea level, shoreline delineation, and general coastal management in coastal application are estimated to create an opportunity of driving the demand for digital elevation model in the coming years. Moreover, there has been an adoption of digital elevation model in coastal areas for underwater application such as seafloor morphological assessment and underwater archaeology.

  • Opportunities Spotted in Asia Pacific

    The digital elevation model market providers are focusing on increasing their business opportunities across countries in the Asia Pacific region such as China, South Korea, and India, due to rising expenditure for military and defence applications and developments in planning and construction sectors. All these factors are supporting the increasing demand for digital elevation model.
