A key idea to predict the condition of an atmosphere for a given location is weather forecasting. Weather forecasting services can be defined as a technique that implements software, tools, and models, which perform the strategic analysis of atmospheric data to predict weather conditions for a particular location under a stipulated time frame. It provides weather forecasts for a specific function, thus helping in efficient day-to-day planning and informative decision-making for various industrial operations, which include planning, scheduling, and implementation. The process of forecasting follows functionalities of meteorology. Massive volume of structured and unstructured data is utilized by weather forecasting models to deliver improved analytical output that enables optimization of business revenues for various end-use industries.

Market Dynamics

The growth in aviation and shipping industry, and rise in safety concerns among end-use industries drive the growth of market. Moreover, strong government measures towards the use of renewable energy are spurring the industries to reduce their greenhouse emissions, thus supplementing the growth. However, lack of trained workforce and complexity of weather forecasting models restrict this market. In addition, advancements in computing systems, i.e., model development and machine learning tools are expected to create lucrative opportunities for weather forecasting service market.

The duration of small-range forecasting can differ from few hours to three days, and it covers a particular region, specifically an area of few million square kilometers. Short-range forecasting held highest share in 2016, and is also expected to maintain its dominance during forecast period. Small-range forecasting is typically issued for meteorological phenomena, for example, hurricanes, tropical storms, and sensible weather elements. It is majorly used in applications related to aviation & shipping industry. Rapid industrialization and continuous growth in air & sea transport drive the growth of this segment. Moreover, increase in air travel boosts the use of short-range forecasting services in aviation industry. Furthermore, growth of transportation industry in developing countries such as Japan, China, and India may provide enormous opportunities for market players.
