Introduction to the Market
A geospatial information system or geographical information system (GIS) is a set of tools that interprets geographical or geospatial data or information. These systems digitize the received geospatial data, process (store, interpret, analyze, and manipulate) the data, and provide the required output.
The Global GIS Engineering Applications market is driven by traditional GIS, one of the largest segments in this market. It also generates a large portion of its revenue from software products and data. The Global GIS Engineering Applications market is expected to post a CAGR of 9.26 percent during 2012–2016. The Global GIS Engineering Applications market is driven by many growth factors; one is the increasing demand of GIS from process industries. However, the lack of awareness about GIS technology in developing countries could affect the growth of the market during the forecast period.
In terms of revenue, the Americas accounts for a large share in the Global GIS Engineering Applications market, and is followed by the EMEA region. The market generated more revenue from developed countries as compared to developing countries in the year 2012. The APAC region is one of the fastest growing geographies in the global market due to the emergence of several manufacturing industries in this region.
