The Digital Map Market size to grow from USD 19.2 billion in 2021 to USD 37.0 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.1% during the forecast period. Various factors such as increasing spending on adoption of newer technologies, changing landscape of customer intelligence to drive the market, and proliferation of customer channels are expected to drive the adoption of Digital Map technologies and services.

Digital maps primarily consolidate navigation, routing, and other allied capabilities and streamline geospatial services. End-users of digital maps include natural resource companies, logistics partners, governments, and homeland security. Today, most of the drivers use maps for navigation purposes, such as to position themselves, plan journeys, and decide the shortest possible routes. However, human driving is expected to be gradually replaced by in-vehicle automated systems, leading to greater demand for digital maps. The maps designed for machines are highly accurate and realistic and provide an exact representation of roads. These maps are commonly referred to as High-Definition (HD) maps. The digital map market is expected to grow owing to several factors, such as the increasing availability of spatial data and analytical tools, growing focus on Business Intelligence (BI), intensifying market competition, and decreasing cost of solutions. Additionally, technological advancements, such as the global deployments of 3G and 4G wireless services, have created ubiquitous connectivity. The enhancement of connectivity technologies, supplemented by the growing interest in personalizing services based on users’ location information, has boosted the growth of the digital map market. Moreover, the realization of cost benefits by deploying solutions for organizational assets covering both personnel and vehicle tracking and management is expected to drive the growth of the market. COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered novel coronavirus. Largely unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, COVID-19 moved from a regional crisis to a global pandemic in just a few weeks. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, 2020. As this virus is spreading rapidly at a global level, countries across the globe are trying to prevent further contagion by taking measures, such as social distancing, contact tracing, self-quarantining, surveillance, communication, and testing. So far, China, South Korea, Japan, and Singapore, have managed to flatten the curve, while the US, Italy, Spain, Germany, France, and Iran are imposing drastic measures to slow down the spread and control fatalities. Government agencies have announced special financial aid packages toward developing preventive and curative drugs, the purchase of critical care medical devices, and the fast-track approval of diagnostic tests. Various organizations, such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Wellcome Trust, are also accelerating and strengthening efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
