LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global GIS market report. This research report also lists eight other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global GIS market will grow at a CAGR of 10.53% during the forecast period. GIS software is used for mapping, geocoding, routing, modeling, reporting, analyzing, and data management. End-users across industries rely on GIS to enhance their productivity, decision-making ability, and safety and security standards. Developing countries such as China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, and South Korea will have a high market growth during the forecast period. However, the growth of the market is mainly driven by the increasing interest shown by the public sector in developed countries such as the US, Canada, Germany, and France.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global GIS market is fragmented with the presence of many vendors. The market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international, regional, and local vendors. In this market, many local and regional vendors provide different GIS software, data, and services at a comparatively lower price than international vendors.

Though new vendors are emerging in this market, they find it difficult to compete with the international vendors in terms of quality, functionalities, features, and services. The competitive environment in this market will intensify with the increase in service extensions, technological innovations, and M&A,” says Ishmeet Kaur, a lead product lifecycle management analyst from Technavio.
