Outdoor/Wide Area Location Technologies Market Update


With geolocation well underway to becoming ubiquitous, especially with the boost given by smartphones, and several governmental entities launching their own regional and global GNSS satellite constellations, new developments in GNSS and other outdoor location technologies cause far-reaching disruptions in the market.

This report examines the development of the GNSS and LPWAN markets, with granularity at the regional level and in different verticals within Location-Based Services, Automotive, and Professional segments. Key user requirements, frequency, and constellation shares and the value chain are also discussed. In the LPWAN section, forecasts are split between technologies and verticals including fleet management, asset tracking, people and pet tracking, and aftermarket telematics. Special sections of the PT are dedicated to discussing opportunities in Low-Power GNSS and High-Precision GNSS, including why these technologies may become important and in which verticals they are more likely to thrive.
