COVID-19 Impact on Digital Map Market
The COVID-19 outbreak has a significant impact on the businesses and the lives of people. The lockdown has resulted in disruption across the supply chain and business continuity resulting in the economic downturn. The COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the digital maps market. GIS technology used in digital maps is used to track the spread of the virus and monitor the available facilities. With the use of GIS-enabled Augmented Reality (AR), to assess the epidemic zones and infection hotspots using 2D/3D maps. The geotag technology also help allows mapping of the virus to identify the source of infection, capture demographics data, such as the elderly and those with a chronic health condition to monitor risk groups and susceptible regions, and to monitor people who are under quarantine.

Moreover, GIS technology has also helped in strengthening business continuity during the pandemic. The technology provides the mapping of the organization’s facilities and resources to monitor for effective decision making. Also, it helps in mapping the employees and available enterprise assets using their home location for enhanced asset management and to ensure business continuity. Thus, the spread of coronavirus has boosted the demand for digital maps significantly, thereby driving the market growth.

Market Drivers

Increasing Adoption of Digital Maps in the Automotive Industry
The increase in advancements and adoption of connected cars and developments in autonomous vehicles is driving the growth of digital maps market. Digital mapping applications are used in self-driving cars for navigation and control purpose. The HD mapping technology allows a driverless cars to confine itself with high precision and to map the exact location with respect to the surrounding environment. Thus, the rapid developments and demand for autonomous vehicles is driving the growth of digital maps market.

Adoption of 3D Platforms and Advanced Technologies in Digital Maps
Digital maps are being continually advancing. The 3D platforms use high-quality geographic data to create 3D visualizations, run simulations, and develop dynamic location-based experiences and games to offer an enhanced user experience. The 3D platforms also help in designing custom maps which changes in real-time, render data quickly at a high-frame-rate, and smoothly deliver interactive content. Moreover, advanced technologies such as LiDAR & orthophotography are also used in digital maps for increasing the accuracy of the digital mapping platforms. Thus, the rising adoption of 3D platforms and advanced technology in digital maps is driving the demand for digital maps.
