Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : ICT

The global Weather Information Technologies market size is expected to be worth around US$ 17.77 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Weather Information Technologies market size was valued at US$ 9.40 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

The increasing need for real-time weather predictions and air quality index is one of the significant factors contributing to market growth. Furthermore, the prevalence of digital transformation technologies for determining highly accurate estimations has led to numerous growth opportunities for industry players.

Over recent decades, the weather conditions have deteriorated due to extreme global warming events caused by hazardous gas emissions. This has led to an increased demand for solutions that can continuously monitor weather changes and other unforeseen activities. Ongoing advances in Information Technology (IT), coupled with communication capabilities, have led to the emergence of state-of-the-art technologies that help to examine the weather circumstances and make precise calculations. The key offerings of one of these technologies are computing thousands of algorithms on a real-time basis and assisting end-users in the preparations against critical warnings and forecasts.

The novel coronavirus outbreak has adversely affected some of the major economies owing to the ‘shelter-in-place norms’ and travel restrictions. The temporary production shutdowns during the last few months have disrupted the supply chain. World Meteorological Organization announced that there had been a sharp decrease in the amount of atmospheric data gathered regularly on account of the diminished frequency of commercial aircraft and cruises during this pandemic, thus affecting the accuracy of forecasts that are largely dependent on predictions attained by sensors mounted on the aircraft and cruises.

Report Highlights

The monitoring devices segment accounted for a high revenue share of around 40.02% in 2019 and is expected to continue dominating the market over the forecast period. The segment is also expected to register a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Monitoring devices are essential components of weather information solutions. These devices are corrosion-resistant and designed to withstand the harshest environments.

The software segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The integration of state-of-the-art meteorological information software with hardware equipment that can offer continuous predictions has increased the demand for weather information technologies. To cope with this demand, certain start-ups and well-established companies are offering upgrades in the computation and visualization methods. The usage of monitoring, display, data collection, and processing software for weather forecasting by using historical and present weather information, is anticipated to majorly contribute to the segment growth.

The weather monitoring and forecasting segment accounted for a dominant share of over 55.02% of the overall weather information technologies market in 2019. The segment is also expected to register a high CAGR over the forecast period. The weather monitoring and forecasting technique is deployed by almost every industry participant that relies on weather conditions, such as agriculture, meteorology, and transportation sectors. It has emerged as a significant method for determining future critical events and related strategic decisions to be made.

The transportation segment is held the largest revenue share of around 18.02% in 2019 and is expected to witness the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. The growth can be attributed to the rapid deployment of weather information technologies in the marine, roadways, and airways sectors for analyzing the favorable conditions for functioning. The aviation industry is one of its primary applications, wherein these technologies are widely used for air traffic control and coherent updates during take-off and landing. These technologies also enable real-time monitoring of air quality levels, allowing users to adopt precautionary strategies to attain human health objectives.

The power and energy segment is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period. Precise forecasts are one of the prominent elements needed for energy generation from solar, wind, hydro, and other renewable energy sources. With an immense requirement to keep the grids stable, energy generation from renewable sources is entirely dependent on weather conditions and requires continuous monitoring for making energy generation-related decisions.

The medium-range forecast segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 44.01% in 2019. Medium-range forecasts help in scenario planning and risk management to reflect likely conditions. Moreover, improvements in numeric prediction models are expected to contribute to the segment growth. The short-range forecast range offers higher accuracy for day-to-day weather event forecasts. On the other hand, long-range forecasting is preferred for determining the change in seasons for preparedness. Long-range forecasting is a significant tool for predicting erratic temperature fluctuations as a result of climate change. Moreover, improvements in numerical prediction models coupled with digitization are expected to increase the segment growth over the forecast period.

The short-range forecast segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of around 10.01% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the system’s ability to generate warnings related to critical weather events, including typhoons, hurricanes, and cyclones, several hours in advance. These short-range forecasting techniques prompt end-users to adopt disaster management programs at the initial stages to avoid reparations. Moreover, significant developments in the internet, wireless communication, computing systems, and smartphones are anticipated to lead to effective real-time transmission of atmospheric conditions over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific dominated the market with a revenue share of over 30.01% in 2019. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea are contributing to market growth. Furthermore, the rising government investments in commercial solutions, apart from their privately launched satellites, are also anticipated to drive growth. For instance, the Meteorological Service Act of Japan intends to increase commercial opportunities for private meteorological services in Japan.
