GSA report maps out trends in GNSS market

By on 24 May, 2017

In the fast evolving world of satellite navigation technology and GNSS applications, monitoring the landscape and having the latest information is essential. With its in-depth look at market opportunities and trends within the dynamic Mapping and Surveying segment, the European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) annual GNSS Market Report is a reliable resource for successfully navigating this exciting market.

As an official European Union Regulatory Agency, the European GNSS Agency (GSA) manages public interests related to European GNSS programmes. The GSA GNSS Market Report is compiled by the GSA and the European Commission and was produced using the GSA’s systematic Marketing Monitoring and Forecasting Process.

The full 100-page GNSS Market Report  takes a comprehensive look at the global GNSS market, providing a thorough analysis per market segment (Location-Based Services (LBS), Road Transportation, Aviation, Maritime, Rail, Agriculture, Surveying and Timing & Synchronisation).

It also covers different regions and application types, including information on shipments, revenues and installed device base.

This edition also expands on the 2016 edition by including critical new features, such as:

  • An expanded section on macro-trends like the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities and Big Data.
  • Segment-specific user perspectives, with an emphasis on the increasingly stringent demands of today’s GNSS users.
  • The unique added-value that European GNSS (EGNOS and Galileo) brings to each segment and how Galileo is already enhancing the functioning of many applications.
  • A special feature on the important role that GNSS plays in the growing market of drones (i.e., UAVs/Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems).

Among the many findings of the report, was the growth in the shipment of GNSS devices is driven by the development of the construction sector, which has an increasing demand for both machine-controlled and person-based technologies.

It also found that to counterbalance the aggressive pricing strategies of Asian manufacturers, incumbent manufacturers are increasingly focusing on customer services and assistance.

GSA Executive Director Carlo des Dorides describes the report as the “go-to resource” for GNSS.

“Providing in-depth information on today’s GNSS market opportunities and a data-driven forecast of its evolution through to 2025, this edition is a must-read for anyone looking to successfully navigate this promising market,” he said.
