The global meteorological equipment market size was USD 2.04 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 3.11 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

Weather is a critical factor in business performance. The prediction of climatic conditions is vital to minimize the risk of losses by taking actionable decisions in the future. The weather elements include temperature, pressure, wind, humidity, and cloudiness. A reasonable amount of certainty to gauge these elements in advance may prove useful to fisheries, agriculture, defense, airlines, and other businesses. The market is anticipated to grow in the coming years owing to the rising dependency of major businesses on climatic conditions, involvement of various associations, and organizations to acknowledge the potential disaster risk in the future for developing combat techniques.

For instance, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in the United States alone, weather is responsible for nearly half a trillion dollars of economic impact. This entails a high adoption of meteorological equipment in North America. Besides, meteorological equipment suppliers are focusing on introducing technologically advanced equipment to collect and interpret raw data in real-time for gearing up opportunities and managing the challenges.

COVID-19 Pandemic to Hamper Growth by Obstructing Production of Equipment

The impact of COVID-19 is creating misery and is expected to sustain for a considerable period in the near future. The immediate lockdown across the globe has had a drastic impact on the supply chain operations and transportation processes. It has also resulted in a severe downfall in the manufacturing and distribution of the equipment market across the globe. China, being the central manufacturing hub and the epicenter of the pandemic, has considerably slowed down the global business operations. It has created massive disruptions in the regional and global value chains.

Nevertheless, this market is expected to gain momentum post lockdown owing to the presence of large armed forces and troops that require protection and future weather prediction to ensure survivability and facilitate functioning without impairing operating efficiency.

  • For instance, in October 2020, the Indian defense industry imported cold-weather equipment mainly due to the lack of viable indigenous solutions and for those troops that are deployed in super high-altitude areas.

Evolvement of Various Technologies is a Prominent Trend

The traditional forecast process was majorly dependent on numerical weather prediction (NWP), as well as measuring maximum/minimum temperature, which was ideally a schedule-driven and labor involvement process. However, new communication networks and forecast system innovations have revolutionized the forecasting process with more accuracy and high reliability. Digital database and next-generation workstations streamlined with IoT, machine learning platform, and big data analytics have improved public weather services (PWS) and their dissemination and service delivery functions. This new wave of technology is further propelling the market. Also, the emergence of various sensors and measuring devices integrated into systems enables us to gauge the density and temperature pressure in real-time. It is creating a potential impact on the deployment of meteorological equipment.

Moreover, today, people worldwide rely on technologies to gain insights into precise and reliable weather conditions. In September 2018, the Weather Company and IBM collaboratively launched an all-new weather channel app to make better decisions about routine and run their businesses smarter and more efficiently. Also, the usage of this app is widespread across the aviation industry as it provides real-time insights to combat weather-induced flight delays. These factors are expected to boost the market.


Changes in Climatic Condition Patterns to Drive Growth

The major factor responsible for propelling the demand for meteorological equipment is the rising changes in weather patterns. It is creating a negative impact across various industries. This would compel end-users to deploy such equipment to improve business performance, gain precise and granular information, and make accurate predictions of the future weather.

  • For instance, according to Skal International, 87% of the retail and tourism executives gain access to complex weather analysis to set forth tourism packages and business decisions. Also, the Global Commission on Adaptation estimated that investing USD 1.8 trillion to climate-proof businesses between now and 2030 can avail and generate up to USD 7.1 trillion in net benefits.

Furthermore, according to a survey of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), half of the biggest companies believe that climate adaptation solutions could result in generating USD 236 billion to increase revenue, thereby creating an attractive return on investments. Owing to this, the market for meteorological equipment is expected to show a higher growth rate in the coming years.


Ignorance of Climate Risk by Many Businesses May Hinder Growth

The major industries are now rigorously adapting climate forecast as a significant parameter for sustainable business performance. However, the private sector and SMEs in developing economies still do not calculate climatic risk while performing business activities. This is a major factor that may inhibit meteorological equipment market growth. Besides, massive investment at the initial stage is another vital factor that can affect product demand.  


By Product Type Analysis

Mixed Phenomenon Segment to Show Higher Growth Rate in Coming Years

Based on the product type, the market is segmented into cold cloud, warm cloud, and mixed phenomenon.

The mixed phenomenon segment is anticipated to flourish in the coming years owing to the rising investigation in complex weather conditions, emergence of various weather forecast agencies, and the evolvement of the latest technologies to predetermine the situation.

The cold cloud and hot cloud segments are anticipated to exhibit considerable growth in the near future, backed by rising global warming. It is further creating an adverse impact on the day-to-day climate. Hence, prior volatility prediction is required to analyze the combat techniques and perform preventive measures.

By Application Analysis

Meteorological Conditions Segment to Hold the Highest Share

Based on application, the market is segmented into the detection of meteorological conditions, field operation, process monitoring, and others

The meteorological conditions segment is expected to hold a major share owing to the growing concerns to determine wind velocity, air temperature, and humidity across the aviation, agriculture, and renewable industries. Moreover, predetermining the environmental conditions is vital to ensure the smooth functioning of trade and shipments. It would further lead to the growth of this segment.

The field operation and process monitoring segments are anticipated to generate considerable share in the coming years stoked by the rising government concerns for gauging adequate field information in real-time, determining, and monitoring processes at every level.
