According to the latest market research report the “Weather Forecasting Services Market by Industry (Aviation, Agriculture, Marine, Oil & Gas, Energy & Utilities, Insurance, Retail, Media), Forecasting Type (Nowcast, Short, Medium, Long), Purpose, Organization Size & Region – Global Forecast to 2025″, size is projected to grow from an estimated USD 1.5 billion in 2020 to USD 2.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing safety concerns in end-use industries and a rise in climate change patterns resulting in uncertainties related to rainfall.
COVID-19 impact on the Weather Forecasting Services Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the weather forecasting services market significantly. Due to the grounding of most of the global fleet, there has been a dramatic reduction in commercial aircraft flights, which supplies crucial weather observations. Information from commercial planes is one of several sources that meteorological bodies use to predict the weather and contribute to the accuracy of forecasting most weather phenomena, including hurricanes. At the end of March 2020, data provided by US aircraft fell 50%, while, as per the European Centre of Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMRWF), readings provided by aircraft across the continent reduced by 80%. The center estimates that if all data provided by aircraft were cut off, the accuracy of weather forecasts would fall about 15%. There will be a significant drawback in both short and long-term readings due to the impact of COVID-19 on the global airline industry.
