Market Report Description
The Global Weather App Market size is expected to reach $1.4 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 9.2% CAGR during the forecast period.
The most reliable weather information, like news, forecasts, and both minor and big shifts in climatic conditions, may be found in apps dedicated to tracking the weather. In addition, weather apps offer weather conditions that are specific to an area, a straightforward and uncomplicated flow of weather information, and enhanced weather information through iPhone and Android applications. The rise in the number of weather stations located in different parts of the world is directly responsible for the improvement in the precision of forecasts.
Playing games, navigating the internet, and checking social media accounts are just some of the activities that can be done on smartphones now that their function has expanded beyond that of simple communication devices. The proliferation of weather apps for smartphones can be attributed to the development of more advanced smartphone technologies. The information provided by these apps includes high-risk and time-critical circumstances related to a variety of weather conditions, including but not limited to rainfalls, floods, tornadoes, and thunderstorms.
The creation of weather apps is an example of one such positive side effect. Users of weather apps are able to receive fast notifications regarding the current weather conditions. Downloading a weather app is the quickest and easiest way to stay up to date on the latest forecast information.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the following lockdown situation, the governments of a number of countries placed restrictions on the freedom of their residents to move about physically, and those citizens generally chose to remain inside their homes. In the wake of this incident, businesses gave their workers the option to telecommute from the comfort of their own homes. During this time period, people started utilizing weather applications to keep themselves informed about the current state of the weather in other parts of the world. As a result, during the pandemic period, the market for weather apps had a solid increase in traction, which may be attributed to the increased need for location-specific assured weather information.
Market Growth Factors
The rise in the tracking of the weather for disaster management
Monitoring services are essential to the management of disasters because they provide constant information on variable weather scenarios. Forecasting the weather and issuing early warnings are two important ways to greatly cut down on the number of lives lost and the amount of property damaged by natural disasters including wildfires, avalanches, floods, hurricanes, and tsunamis, amongst others. Continuous weather monitoring makes it possible for civic, governmental, and military authorities, as well as for environmental hazard mitigation as well as industrial planning, to improve their respective planning capabilities.
Utilization of Big Data analytics in many types of weather forecasting services
Opportunities for growth are being created in this market as a result of the work that meteorologists are doing with big data analytics and predictive analytics to forecast future weather conditions based on their examination of current and historical weather data. The analysis of data pertaining to the weather, in order to offer timely information that contributes to the production of accurate weather forecasts, is an important role that is played by big data analytics. By making use of large amounts of data, local authorities are able to improve their ability to forecast problems that may be caused by the weather.
Marketing Restraining Factor
Obstacles to operations brought on by the COVID-19
The World Meteorological Organization is concerned about the COVID-19 Pandemic's expanding effects on the quantity and caliber of weather records, forecasts, and atmosphere and climate monitoring. The World Meteorological Organization reports that, on average, compared to normal, meteorological observations made from aircraft have decreased by a high rate with significant regional variations. The decline is over 90% in the southern hemisphere. In Africa and parts of South & Central America, where many stations are manually run rather than mechanically run, surface-based meteorological measurements are on the decline. The monitoring of meteorological observations from airplane platforms has decreased by 75-80% as a result of the decline in the number of commercial flights.
