Market Overview:

The Global Dropsondes Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for weather data and forecasts for various applications such as weather stations, military agencies, and others. Additionally, the growing adoption of dropsondes in atmospheric research is also propelling the market growth. However, lack of standardization across different regions may restrain the market growth during the forecast period. On basis of type, global dropsondes market can be segmented into with GRUAN data product and without GRUAN data product segments. With GRUAN data product segment is expected to hold major share in global dropsondes market due to its ability to provide high-quality atmospheric measurements which are essential for climate monitoring purposes. On basis of application, global dropsondes market can be segmented into weather stations, military agencies and others segments.

Global Dropsondes Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A dropsonde is a small, expendable weather device that is released from an aircraft into the atmosphere to measure atmospheric conditions.

With GRUAN Data Product:

With the growing demand for data gathering from oil and gas industry, there is a need to increase the capacity of GRUAN data product. The growth factor in this market is increasing with rising investment by companies in order to reduce cost and time taken for exploration process.

GRUAN technology provides real-time information about reservoir conditions which helps operators make better decisions during drilling operations.

No GRUAN Data Product:

No GRUAN data product is a new term used in the Dropsonde market. It means that there is no requirement of GPS signal for measuring the dropsondes position as it uses radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The main advantage of this technique is that it does not require line-of-sight transmission, which makes it more accurate and reliable than other technologies available in the market at present.

Application Insights:

The weather stations segment dominated the global dropsondes market in 2017. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing need for real-time weather data in a wide range of applications, including agriculture, water resources, and transportation. Dropsonde is one of the most effective meteorological tools used for monitoring temperature and pressure at different depths below the surface of earth. Thus, rising demand from various industries is expected to drive industry growth over the forecast period.

Military agencies accounted for a significant share in 2017 owing to their extensive use during times when governments are preparing citizens for emergencies such as pandemic outbreaks or natural disasters by means of civil defense training drills held by military authorities across countries worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

North America Dropsondes Market accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The growth is attributed to the presence of a large number of dropsonde manufacturers and suppliers, coupled with high demand from weather stations and military agencies. In addition, technological advancements such as GPS-based data logging are also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to increasing investments by government organizations in developing countries such as India and China for deploying GRUAN based sensors at various locations across their respective countries. Moreover, rising awareness among farmers regarding soil moisture content will further propel industry expansion over next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for atmospheric monitoring and weather forecasting
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of dropsondes in various applications
  • Technological advancements in dropsonde manufacturing process
  • Growing number of research and development activities for improving the performance of dropsondes
  • Rising investments by government and private organizations for expanding the use of Dropsondes
