GNSS.asia, a Horizon-2020 project of the European GNSS Agency (GSA) that aims to stimulate the creation of partnerships between GNSS industries in Europe and Asia, has announced the publication of its first Market and Technology Trends Report for the Asian market. Packed with key insights from GNSS.asia teams on the ground in Asia, this report, provided on quarterly basis, is a must read for companies looking to expand into Asian markets or to cooperate with Asian companies and institutions.
The GNSS.asia report shares the latest GNSS developments in Asia (Taiwan, China, South Korea, India, Japan and Australasia), including information on upstream developments, covering satellites and satellite augmentation systems, ground equipment, policy initiatives and much more.
Highlights from the report include details on new SBAS developments in both Australasia and Korea, the finalisation of BDS-3 in China, the use of GNSS in the fight against both COVID-19 and wildfires in Australia, the mandatory introduction of emergency call devices in new vehicles in Japan, and many other interesting developments.
Some key findings:
• Companies in Japan are looking to take advantage of QZSS, but there is a major barrier to entry for companies due to the high price of the receivers.
• The expansion of Taiwanese and South Korean domestic satellite supply chains is a key target for partnership opportunities.
• The improvements brought about by the development of the new Australia-New Zealand SBAS will provide an entire new set of downstream applications across all segments.
• Japan’s mandatory introduction of a vehicle emergency call function that is compatible with the European e-Call opens up the market to companies from Europe.
