Furthermore, the rising geopolitical tension around the world has alerted the countries to enhance the safety of their borders. Thus, increasing government initiatives to manufacture their own Navigation Satellite System is leading the demand in the market. Some of the GNNS are GPS of the US, GLONASS of Russia, Navigation Indian Constellation (NavIC) of India, QZSS of Japan, Beidou of China, etc.
Key Trend in the Market:
Navigation services have become an essential part of the day-to-day operations of the businesses as well as have increasingly made customers reliant on navigation for the route & rerouting in transportation. With the addition of AI in navigation-based services, the companies could easily reduce the errors made in the earlier experience as well as improve the overall customer experience. For military purposes, navigation services are being used for targeting & mapping the path of aircraft, projectiles, etc. Moreover, with the mobile targets, the requirement for AI to be integrated into the navigation satellite systems to provide an optimum solution for rerouting in different terrains would be highly efficient for increasing the effectiveness.
Additionally, many of the Inertial navigation systems providers have effectively integrated AI into the existing solutions for the military to increase the efficiency of targeting as well as developing similar systems to be integrated into the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Market
COVID-19 disrupted the supply chain & led to the shortage of raw materials for various products leading to reduced manufacturing of electronic products in various industries, including the automobile, mobile manufacturing companies, etc., affecting the sectors adversely. However, the demand for the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) accelerated during the period, owing to the shift of customers towards online shopping & the boost of the e-commerce sector.
Along with this, the inclination toward the online transaction also boosted the demand for the GPS during the transaction. Hence, these factors helped the Navigation Satellite System (GNNS) to gain traction during the period & further are also anticipated to grow in the coming years.
Based on the Type:
Here, Global Constellation grabbed a sizeable market in the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)s market between 2017 & 2021. With the availability of global satellite constellations such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS), a large number of devices have been configured with it in order to access navigation services across the globe. Hence, due to the adoption of GPS-enabled services the Global Constellation has gained a major market share in the global GNSS market.
Further, GPS-enabled systems have been extensively used for navigation by the individual user, as well as by commercial businesses & government agencies for geo-location purposes. As global constellation systems provide global navigation services, phone manufacturers, and other communication device manufacturers opt to use them to attract a broader audience. This has attracted a large number of companies involved in device manufacturing to integrate GPS-compatible tracking devices & systems, leading to the segment finding extensive growth globally.
Based on Application:
Of them all, Aviation is one of the prominent segments with the requirement of satellite-based navigation to ensure path correction as well as real-time tracking of the location. With the extensive fleet of commercial jets used in transportation & rise in individual commercial jets ownership, the ground infrastructure for aviation has expanded throughout the globe. Furthermore, with the extensive integration of new jets of the 4th & 5th generation by the military sector, the demand for satellite navigation-based services for course correction, payload delivery, and real-time tracking of the path would further escalate in the forthcoming years.
Consequently, there has been a rise in the investment in navigation devices to be integrated with existing architectures to ensure the positioning of aircraft for operational activities and to ensure safety measures.
Geographically, the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Market expands across:
Of all the regions around the world, North America holds a considerable share in the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) market due to its Global Positioning System (GPS), owned by the US, which is used worldwide for determining location, navigation, tracking, mapping, and timing.
