The global weather forecasting services market was valued at US$ 1,413.37 million in 2020 & it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period 2021–2028.

Weather forecasting services aims at giving day-to-day forecast relating to weather conditions. Weather is one of the biggest impact factors for every human activity and has been the biggest driver of development for the human race. The development is usually exponential in certain areas where the weather is reasonable compared to areas with harsher climate ranges. As technically developed as we are today, many measures can be taken to be efficient against the climate if a prior warning is provided. The weather forecasting services is a consulting that provides required information, which leads to informed decision-making and even cost savings. This is especially important for sectors dealing with weather-sensitive services. Some examples of such sectors are renewable energy, agriculture, construction, aviation, media, shipping, and utilities. These industries have heavy use for weather services. The services are especially in demand in today's world, where the climate is becoming increasingly variable and unpredictable due to global warming.

Covid 19 Impact

Our world was hit hard by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The extremely high number of infection cases sends everyone into a frenzy. Governments were doing their best to decrease the infection rate by acting on their minimal information. The rise in the reported number of infectious cases has directly or indirectly affected the manufacturing process of almost every industry, for good or bad. The weather forecast services require specialized equipment, and its manufacturing was at a standstill during these years. This affected the industry deeply; however, the industry is slowly undergoing recovery and is expected to grow even more due to increasing climate changes worldwide.

Drivers

Changing Climate Patterns Resulting in Uncertainties in Rainfall

Global warming has had an adverse effect on the climatic conditions we face compared to what we experienced a few years back. The temperature and timing of the different seasons in particular areas were previously mapped and predictable. Extreme changes in climatic patterns rarely occur. Recently, the overall climatic temperature has gone up. This has given rise to much more precipitation than normal, directly affecting the rainfall frequency and intensity. Heavy downpours and frequent snowfalls due to heavy precipitation are experienced in some areas, while others do not even touch the mark of the required level. This has raised the need for weather forecasting services. The rise in incidents of natural disasters has resulted in heavy dependence on the weather forecasting services market for damage control. The situation is dire, and it calls for extreme actions.
