Methodology and sources of information

The GSA`s (now EUSPA) GNSS market model uses advanced forecasting techniques applied to a wide range of input data, assumptions and scenarios to forecast the size of the GNSS market in terms of shipments, revenue and installed base of receivers.

The forecast methodology is bespoke for each application and depends on the availability of input data. For some applications, detailed data on the number of devices shipped or value of the market are available, others rely on the number of devices in the installed base, while others still use the number of potential users as a starting point. Key input assumptions are collected to help inform the penetration of GNSS, the average lifetime of a device, device prices, and GNSS augmentation and added-value service revenues as well as GNSS-dependent revenues per device. Input assumptions and outputs are validated with industry experts to ensure emerging trends are captured as soon as they are identified.

Where possible, historical values are anchored to actual data in order to ensure a high level of accuracy. Application-level model results are cross-checked against the most recent market research reports from independent sources before being validated through an iterative consultation process with European and international sector experts and stakeholders.
