The use of navigation systems in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the ongoing requirements for high-precision applications in surveying and geodesy expand the scope of the market. High costs associated with the deployment and maintenance of satellite infrastructure hampers the market growth. Growing innovations in both satellite technology and the miniaturization of navigation devices are expected to create opportunities for market growth. The rising research & development activities to expand the applications in industries such as agriculture, urban planning, and disaster management are anticipated to fuel the market growth in upcoming years.

Satellite Technology: Rising usage of satellite-based augmentation systems to improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems

Global constellations refer to the network of satellites providing global coverage for navigation and timing services. The key global constellations include the GPS (Global Positioning System) operated by the United States, GLONASS operated by Russia, Galileo by the European Union, and BeiDou, operated by China. Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) are designed to improve the performance of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) by providing additional accuracy, integrity, and availability. SBAS works by receiving GNSS signals, determining accuracy errors, and transmitting correction signals to receivers. These systems cater to specific regions and are particularly prevalent in precision-critical operations such as aircraft landing.

End User: Growing potential of navigation satellite systems across automotive sector for in-car navigation, telematics, and autonomous

Navigation satellite systems have become pivotal in modern agriculture, supporting precision farming practices. These systems enable farmers to enhance productivity by optimizing planting patterns, monitoring crop health through NDVI, and automating tractors and equipment. In the automotive sector, navigation satellite systems are integral for in-car navigation, telematics, and autonomous driving applications. The aviation industry heavily relies on GNSS for navigation, traffic management, and flight planning. GNSS has a crucial role in disaster management, supporting early warning systems, search and rescue operations, and damage assessment. Logistics & shipping companies employ GNSS for tracking and managing their fleets, as well as for scheduling and routing. Marine applications of GNSS encompass navigation, port operations, and fisheries management. In the medical sector, GNSS technology finds a novel use in mobile health applications and emergency services, facilitating ambulance dispatch and patient location tracking. Security & surveillance agencies utilize GNSS for border patrol, asset tracking, and law enforcement. The transportation industry incorporates GNSS for public transport scheduling, ride-sharing services, and infrastructure management.
