Global Mobile Mapping Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global mobile mapping market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~ USD 128 billion by the end of 2031 by growing at a CAGR of ~19% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~ USD 26 billion in the year 2021. Mobile mapping involves making a map and is especially beneficial in efficiently mapping inaccessible areas while collecting geospatial data from a moving vehicle. The mobile vehicles should have different sensors and the geospatial data collected indicates the absolute or relative position of objects on earth. The worldwide growth of smart city projects is the primary factor driving the growth of the global mobile mapping market. For instance, globally, the technological spending on smart city initiatives is projected to increase from about USD 82 billion to over USD 189 billion between 2018 and 2023.






Presently the United States (U.S.) is estimated to hold more than 25% of the global expenditure on initiatives on smart city technology. Additionally, China alone is deploying more than 790 country-wide smart city programs.

Global Mobile Mapping Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Initiatives for The Growth of Digitization – The global spending on digital transformation (DX) is projected to grow from ~USD 2 trillion in 2022 to ~USD 3 trillion by 2025. Further, it is projected that more than 60% of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP) should be digitized by 2022. Over 55% of enterprises were thought to prioritize digital transformation as of 2021. Improving operational efficiency (~41%) and meeting the changing customer expectations (~36%) are the main reasons for digital transformation among businesses. Additionally, close to 98% of executives agree that the changes brought about by COVID-19 have sped up digital transformation efforts worldwide.  The developments in digitization result in the growth of the mobile mapping industry, as mobile mapping is a method of mapping using very few non-renewable resources.

  • Rapid Growth in Urbanization Globally – It is estimated that by 2040, about 65% of the global population should be living in cities. Additionally, more than 1 million people are estimated to move to cities each week.

  • Comprehensive Implementation of Mobile Tracking to Contain COVID-19 – In 2020, ~91% increase was observed in the number of countries using digital tracking measures.

  • Commendable Growth of the Autonomous Vehicle Industry – It has been observed that globally the autonomous vehicle industry grows by more than 15% yearly.


  • Slowing Down of Hardware Manufacture Following COVID-19 Restrictions

  • High Initial Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) on Infrastructure

  • Limited Range of the Class 1 Eye Safe Laser Usually Used in Mobile Mapping

The global mobile mapping market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into road mapping, topographic mapping, 3D city modeling, environmental monitoring, autonomous navigation, archeological scanning, and others. Topographic mapping is implemented in several scenarios, including large-scale architecture, geographic planning, civil engineering, mining, and other earth-based endeavors, and for recreational processes, including orienteering and hiking. The growing scope of technologies, including mobile mapping in these fields, is thought to result in global mobile mapping market growth. For instance, it is projected that by 2025, about 21% of the global mining industry should be adopting smart sensors.

Global Mobile Mapping Market Regional Synopsis

Regionally, the global mobile mapping market is studied in five major regions, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa region. Amongst these, the market in the North American region is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2031. The growing investments and the growth of technologies, including big data, artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), cloud services, and more, are thought to drive the growth of the mobile mapping market in North America.
