Smartphones Segment to Lead GNSS Chip market Based on Types of Devices

On the basis of types of devices, the GNSS chip market is segmented broadly into smart phones, in-vehicle networking systems, personal navigational devices, and others for example, smart wearable devices, smart glasses, smart watches, smart rings, and so on. Among these, the smartphones segment is anticipated to lead the market with maximum share in coming years. This is due to tremendous rise in use of smartphones all across the globe. Geographically, North America is likely to be a key region dominating the global navigational satellite system (GNSS) chip market, which will likely rise with a CAGR of 6.4% both in terms of volume and value.

The increased usage of geo-tracking devices and location tracking services, along with their varied applications are major factors driving the growth of global GNSS chip market. The rise in demand for these location tracking services is foreseen to keep on acting as a one of the major drivers of the market in the coming few years too. The market is likely to experience significant growth in demand from sectors for example, automotive, transportation, consumer electronics, and military and defense.

Increased Demand in railway Industry to Boost to Positively Affect Growth of GNSS Chips Market

Besides, in the transportation industry, the railway sector is prognosticated to influence the demand for GNSS chips, positively. This is due to the property of these devices to help improve driver advisory systems, low-density, railways passenger information systems, and main line command and control systems. Moreover, the usage of GNSS chips helps in better the working of these systems, in the proper management of optimize traffic maintenance, fleet, and help track the real-time location of trains via maps. The flourishing railway industries in various developing countries in regions for example, the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific are likely to fuel the increased demand for GNSS chips.

This review of the global dental laboratories market is based on a recent market research report by “GNSS Chip Market (Devices Type - Smart Phones, In-Vehicle Networking Systems, and Personal Navigational Devices; End-use Industry - Consumer Electronics, Agriculture, Automotive, Defense, and Marine Industry) - Global Industry Analysis, Trend, Size, Share, and Forecast 2017 – 2025.”

Key Takeaways:

  • All the vendors are competing equally to achieve more and more market shares, due to which the competitive scenario among the vendor appears to be quite tensed.
