The global GNSS community sees the Market Report as invaluable resources for policy-making and business development.

In the fast evolving world of satellite navigation technology and GNSS applications, monitoring the landscape and having the latest information is essential. The GSA’s 2015 GNSS Market Report, which provides an in-depth look at market opportunities and technology trends across eight market segments, is the go-to resource for GNSS market intelligence, being cited by policy and strategy documents across the globe.

Since its launch on 25 March 2015, the fourth issue of the European GNSS Agency’s (GSA) GNSS Market Report has been downloaded over 40 000 times – proving its position as the go-to resource for global navigation satellite system (GNSS) market intelligence. Covering location-based services (LBS), road transportation, aviation, maritime, rail, agriculture, mapping and surveying, and timing and synchronisation, the report serves a wide variety of industries, private businesses, institutions and public stakeholders around the world. 

Unique to this edition of the Market Report is an analysis of more than 300 receiver and chipset models available on the global market in 2015 – an important topic further explored in the 2016 GNSS User Technology Report. Published as a sister publication to the GNSS Market Report, the GNSS User Technology Report zeros in on the latest state-of-the-art GNSS receiver technology, along with providing expert analysis on the evolutionary trends that are set to redefine the global GNSS landscape. Topics include:

  • mass-market solutions
  • transport safety and liability-critical solutions
  • high-precision, timing and asset management solutions.

“The GSA’s GNSS Market Report has been continuously improving over the years and, combined with the new GNSS User Technology Report, we can definitely say that it is a valuable source of information for our work,” says Telespazio France Head of SatNav Downstream Department Axelle Pomies. “Overall, it gives a good overview of existing and emerging GNSS applications and services in each domain, reflects the main market trends and accurately identifies the various value chains.”

“We are happy to see the worldwide recognition of these two GNSS market monitoring initiatives,” says GSA Head of Market Development Gian Gherardo Calini. “Judging by the number of downloads and the positive feedback we receive, it is clear that the global GNSS community sees these publications as invaluable resources for policy-making and business development.”

With the launch of Galileo Initial Services at the end of 2016, readers will particularly value the publications’ insight on the market shift towards a true multi-constellation environment. As Galileo joins GPS and other global and regional GNSS systems, the multi-constellation concept is becoming a reality. With 11 Galileo satellites working together with GPS, there are more satellites in the sky, meaning more accurate positioning for the end-user and more opportunities for chipset, receiver and device manufacturers – especially those focusing on navigation devices for urban use where satellite signals can be blocked by tall buildings.

It’s an exciting time for European GNSS. For the first time ever, users around the world are being guided using the positioning, navigation and timing information provided by Galileo’s global satellite constellation. But as the GSA’s GNSS Market Report and the GNSS User Technology Report make clear, Galileo’s real potential isn’t found in the satellites, but in the services and benefits those satellites create for European citizens and businesses.

With Galileo, Europe is set to enjoy substantial economic growth. To ensure European businesses are equipped with the latest information and insights they need to compete, the GSA is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of Issue 5 of the GNSS Market Report. In addition to the segment-specific research of past editions, the new edition will include some exciting new sections, including:

  • expanded information on macro trends
  • user perspectives that show how GNSS solutions respond to user needs
  • insight on the added value that European GNSS brings to each market segment.

Scheduled for release in mid-2017, you can already reserve your free copy today.
