Weather information technologies provide us with the present atmospheric conditions as well prediction of atmospheric conditions. With the help of these weather information technologies, accurate predictions of weather conditions can be prepared. These technologies find major applications in the aviation industry, wherein they are used for air traffic control as weather forecasts through these technologies are critical for safe take-off and landing.
Automated weather stations are used at airports for examing atmospheric information. Weather information technologies also find applications in military operations, wherein factors such as strong winds, thick fog, rains and lightning severely impact the ability to conduct vital operations in an effective manner. Vortex turbulence that forms behind a passenger aircraft is referred to as wake turbulence. Consecutive take-offs and landings require an interval, or a separation, during which wake turbulence by a preceding aircraft fades out.
The interval is about 2 minutes in case of a large aircraft. Evidently, the current practices of operations will be insufficient to cope with the expected increases in airplane passenger traffic, and it is not always necessary to wait for as long as 2 minutes because wake turbulence moves and recedes as a result of atmospheric phenomenon such as wind, and computes a safe interval. There is an increase in military demands for the consistent weather updates and air traffic control; which are expected to drive the market for the weather information technologies during the forecast period of 2014-2025. To implement the operations successfully, a good understanding of the weather information becomes a necessity. The weather information technologies equipment prices are expected to be restraining factors for the weather information technologies.
Based on technology, the global weather information technologies market is segmented into Weather Satellite Technology (Geostationary Orbit, Polar Orbit), and Radar Technology (Doppler radar, Weather Radar). Sounding Systems and Radiosondes, Weather Station, Broadcasting). Currently, “weather satellite technology” segment is expected to be the dominant segment on the basis of technology followed by radar technology. These technologies are more efficient in delivering regular weather updates.
Based on forecast type, the global weather information technologies market is segmented into Normal Range, Short Range, Medium Range, and Long Range. Based on application, the global weather information technologies market is segmented into Aviation, Agriculture, Energy, Marine, Military, Transportation, Others. Based on equipment, the global weather information technologies market is segmented into Barometer, Anemometer, Hygrometer, Rain Gauge, and Thermometer.
Based on components, the global weather information technologies market is segmented into Data Loggers, Software, Sensors, and Hardware. Based on Geographical Region, the global weather information technologies market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific, Japan, Middle East and Africa.
North America is expected to be largest market for global weather information technology market followed by Europe. The weather information technologies market which is anticipated to observer the maximum growth in the Asia Pacific region during the forecast period of 2014-2025; especially in countries such as India, China, and Japan as these countries offer large investment opportunities for major market players operating in the weather information technology marketplace. The Key Players include All Weather, Inc., Campbell Scientific, Inc., Vaisala, Sutron, MORCOM International, Gill instruments Limited, Columbia Weather Systems, Inc., and others.
