GIS (Geographic Information System) is a system that is extensively being utilized as a decision making as well as problem-solving procedures along with the ability to visualize data in a spatial structure. These systems are also being adopted to estimate the density of structures in a given area, the activity occurring in nearby locations and to recognize the pattern of change in a particular area. The global GIS market was valued at USD 8.3 billion in 2023 and is further expected to become USD 15.7 billion by 2030. This market is further expected to witness CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period 2025 – 2030.
