"Raster DEM Projected to Lose its Dominance to Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) DEM"

Raster DEM is the most easily available and commonly used digital elevation model at present. Raster DDEM is easy to design and does not involve intricate details of a given topography. The precision and accuracy are compromised in raster DEM, however, the short-comings are compensated with its low cost and fewer efforts required to map compared to triangular irregular network (TIN) DEM. Raster DEM is generally used by small applications such as telecommunication mapping and where cost is more of priority compared to accuracy. However, applications such as aerospace, military & defense and planning & construction prefer triangular irregular network (TIN) DEM for its great graphics representation and precision to few decimal degrees or meters. The technique is expensive but with continuous development in computer graphics and effective measuring techniques, the price of TIN DEM expected to come down, making the segment dominant in coming years.

"Geological Exploration & Surveys Conducted by Governments by Countries Worldwide Helped the Segment to Lead the Way"

Every country across the globe are mapping their territories and understanding their topology in order to carry out geological exploration and surveys. These explorations and surveys help nations to identify and define their boundaries and utilize their natural resources to the optimum level. Planning and construction trail geological exploration and surveys in terms of market value. Rapid urbanizations and expansion of human habitat forced authorities to use DEM for planning and construction in order to ensure safe and economic construction of infrastructure. In addition to the aforementioned end-use application, telecommunication is one of the fastest growing sectors in overall digital elevation model market. Introduction of 5G module encouraged telecommunication companies to incorporate digital elevation model for their macro and microanalysis for telecommunication grid. These companies are using DEM to explore locations for their towers for better signal reception and dispersion. Besides various other end-use applications such as training and simulations, gaming and transportation industry are exploring utilizes of DEM, thus, encouraging the growth of DEM market in coming years.

"Developing Countries of Asia Pacific are the Most Lucrative Market for DEM Developers to Watch-out for"

North America backed by a strong market in the U.S. hold the top position in the overall digital elevation model (DEM) market in the year 2017. Various end-use sectors often study their digital elevation model of the desired location before initiating any major planning or construction. The DEM of the U.S. is available free of cost on government portals for common public. These models are updated periodically. Europe is the second most dominating region in DEM market after North America. However, developing countries such as China, India, and South Korea among others are the most lucrative market for DEM developers in coming years. Significant activities in planning and construction sector and rising expenditure for military and defense applications are the major factors supporting the growth of DEM market in Asia Pacific. The Region is the fastest growing region in overall digital elevation model (DEM) market in coming years.
