The GEOBIM Market in AEC Industry Report is an annual report which covers the entire spectrum of geospatial technologies, BIM and Digital Twins in the global and regional AEC industry. In terms of economic uncertainties and physical distancing, the AEC industry in particular, requires flexible resilience plans inclusive of highly advanced technologies to minimize the risks stemming from material shortages, labour shortages, liquidity issues, which are inherently causing delay and disruption in the progress of construction work.

The report presents a detailed snapshot of the AEC industry, the GEOBIM technology ecosystem, GEOBIM Maturity Model and the GEOBIM Readiness Index, tracing the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the AEC industry, subsequent economic recovery efforts of various countries, and the first indicative figure of the impact of COVID-19 on the AEC and the geospatial industry for FY2020-2021.

The report investigates the entire spectrum of the AEC industry across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, Africa and South America, for sub-sectors – transport, building, and industrial sectors – taking in the views of architects, planners, engineers, consultants, construction companies, project owners, and both geospatial and BIM technology providers.

The cumulative global AEC market witnessed the slowest growth in 2019 and is estimated to US$ 11.13 trillion, growing at a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific and North America emerges as dominant markets with 66.97% and 11.9% of the global AEC market in 2019.

The global construction sector is expected to grow, albeit at a slow pace despite economic uncertainties. Revenue growth will be the highest in China, followed by India – the new engine of global growth or construction and other south-east Asian economies – Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Global Geospatial AEC Market


The cumulative geospatial industry’s value in AEC is in pre-COVID-19 situation is estimated to be US$ 71.28 billion in 2019 and is estimated to reach US$ 117.59 by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 12.69% between 2015 and 2023.

The Asia-Pacific region is going to be continue being the largest geospatial technology market in AEC industry having a share of 53.83% of the total US$ 117.59 billion market in 2023.


The GEOBIM Maturity Model is critical to evaluate and assess the ability of an AEC firm to operate in a collaborative and connected data environment. The GEOBIM Maturity Model ranges from Level 0 to 3 and beyond as more innovation takes place in the GEOBIM technology ecosystem and the integration of geospatial and BIM technologies become an ‘accepted’ definition across the construction lifecycle. The GEOBIM Maturity Model – cuts across the construction lifecycle of surveying, plan and design, construction and operations and maintenance.

GeoBIM Maturity Model



In the GEOBIM technology ecosystem, while 2018 was the year of M&A’s, 2019 was the year of consolidation. In 2019, there were hardly any M&A’s or partnerships that took place for geographic expansion (across regions) and portfolio diversification. Tech-giants focussed on enhancing/enriching their product portfolios by previous acquisitions or by integrating capabilities for workflow integration to bring new efficiencies into construction workflow.

GeoBIM Readiness Index 2020


The GEOBIM Readiness Index-2020 is a blue-print for stakeholders (AEC industry, policy makers and industry) to use and develop efficient integrated geospatial and BIM capabilities to maintain a global competitive advantage for infrastructure development and to build resilient and sustainable cities and communities – contributing to robust national growth and development

United States, United Kingdom and Germany rank first, second and third respectively in the GEOBIM Readiness Index-2020 operating at a sophisticated level of maturity (Level 0-3).
