With over 21,000 downloads since it was first published online on 21 May 2017, the GNSS Market Report 5 is proving to be a useful tool for all market players, from laymen to GNSS experts, providing a comprehensive overview of the status and trends on the GNSS market.

The GNSS Market Report, produced by the European GNSS Agency (GSA), is published every two years, with the latest edition released in May 2017. Just one year after its publication, the most recent edition of the GNSS Market Report has been downloaded over 21,000 times, indicating that the report is seen as a valuable resource by GNSS market players. The previous GNSS Market Report has been downloaded over 49,000 times since it was published in 2015.

Insightful overview

The GNSS Market Report is a comprehensive source of knowledge and information on the dynamic global GNSS market, providing comprehensive, in-depth analysis of global trends, along with the latest developments in terms of shipments, revenues and the installed base of GNSS devices and applications in key GNSS market segments – both mass market and professional.

Thanks to the GSA’s unique position, interfacing with the entire GNSS value chain, including manufacturers, service providers and app developers, it is able to identify user requirements and capture market trends and disruptive technologies, such as drones, very early on. This is a special feature of the report, and one that is valued by its users.

On trend

“The updated GNSS Market Report version 5 is insightful and gives a nice overview of what the GNSS market is all about. It’s helpful for both a laymen and an expert in this market. The trends are always interesting to read,” said Alain Suskind, Senior Director of R&D and Operations at GNSS and GPS receiver manufacturer Septentrio.

The trends identified in the previous edition of the report have been borne out by market developments, and this has cemented the report’s reputation as a source of reliable and up-to-date information.

“The GSA GNSS Market Report is a welcome addition to the source material that any GNSS business professional can use in the analysis of where the market is moving. The report is well researched, is updated regularly, and provides a wealth of data across vertical markets and geographies,” said Neil Gerein, Director of Product Management at high-precision GPS and GNSS positioning technology provider NovAtel.

The Market Report alternates with the GNSS User Technology Report, which takes an in-depth look at the state-of-the-art in GNSS receiver technology and provides expert analysis on the evolutionary trends that are set to redefine the dynamic global GNSS user technology industry.
