Outdoor/Wide Area Location Technologies


A newer version of this research is available.

Please refer to Outdoor/Wide Area Location Technologies to ensure you are viewing the latest forecasts.

This market data tracker provides forecasts of outdoor Location ICs shipments and revenues, either that be GNSS, cellular, or low-power area (LPWAN based). The tracker covers market opportunities across 20 key use cases targeting different industries including the traditional location-based services, retail, transportation and fleet management, professional services, network infrastructure, and industrial applications.

Particular granularity is provided for GNSS ICs broken down by constellation type (e.g. GPS, Glonass, Galileo, Beidou, etc.) and frequency bands supported (e.g. L1/E1, L2, L5/E5). In addition to GNSS, the tracker provides forecasts for other technologies with location capabilities, including Sigfox, LoRa, LTE-M, and NB-IoT.
