GPS was developed in 1970s and used only for military purposes; however after 1999, the signals were released for civilian purposes as well. This has created a large and constantly growing market in the last 10 years. Currently, GPS receiver is used in various industries such as farming, construction, transportation, and aerospace.  In addition to creating efficiencies and reducing operating costs, the adoption of GPS technology has improved safety, emergency response times, and environmental quality along with, delivering many other less-readily quantifiable benefits. The main concern with regards to the GPS systems is their strength to transmit signals. Due to this, GPS is still unable to cover all areas, across the world. Studies from our side indicate that different governments are working on this problem and are expected to launch their own satellites system to resolve this issue. With the increasing use of GPS, a greater accuracy and precision is being desired by users, thereby leading to a rising demand for precision GPS products and services.

Where most old GPS receivers only look at the data coming from the GPS satellites orbiting overhead, the precision GPS receiver uses another technique namely real-time kinematics (RTK), to determine the receiverís location with exacting precision. The basic idea behind RTK is to look at the carrier frequency of the GPS signals. This frequency has a wavelength of 19 cm, compared to the alternating 1s and 0s of the signals that are transmitted at around 1 MHz, or about 300 meters between each bit. While centimeter-level precision isnít possible with only one receiver, so two receivers are used one at base station and one on a vehicle, connected via radio link, which makes for a very exacting high-accuracy GPS receiver. One of the major problems in this field is licensing as there are stringent rules and regulations for the companies who want to enter in this field. Owing to this, numerous companies who wanted to enter this field failed to pass such stringent criteria. Now with the innovation in terms of usage in different fields such as fitness and infotainment, the new entrants have been able to raise their bars and enter these fields aggressively.

The Global Positioning Systems (GPS) are being deployed in various commercial ventures across the world. Previously, GPS receiver systems were utilized only for military and civil purposes. Currently, GPS receivers are broadly utilized for different modern applications in transportation, industrial, agriculture, and aviation, which help these businesses to enhance their efficiency and reduce costs. Moreover, GPS receivers have helped enhance well-being by improving the reaction time in a crisis. The recreational and wellness business sector is witnessing a rise in innovation in terms of GPS.  The increasing utilization of wireless technology and prevalence of location based applications across the world are influencers for this business sector.

The GPS receiver market for mid and high Level RTK precision is expected to reach $3.09 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 16.36% between 2015 and 2020.

The mid and high level precision GPS receiver market is divided based on the type of grade used into differential grade and survey grade GPS. The deployment of GPS technology has expanded across numerous disciplines, yet faces challenges on some fronts. Typically, GPS receivers are divided into one of two broad categories based on their measurement accuracy and capabilities: survey and differential grade. The technological advancements in the high precision segment of the GPS market with respect to accuracy, reliability, and price reduction has driven the market to expand into numerous applications. With the technological innovations, the receivers can be used to achieve position accuracies down to few millimeters for various applications such as precision farming, mining, construction, oil & gas, marine, and more.

This report covers the vital driving and restraining factors for this market. The growth of the mid and high level precision GPS market is being triggered by ongoing developments to improve the overall GPS infrastructure, technological advancements and GPS augmentation, availability of more cost effective GPS solutions, and more. However, heavy reliance on the availability of satellites, and slow market acceptance for new technologies are acting as an obstacle to the growth of the mid and high level precision GPS market.

The worldwide market for mid and high level precision GPS is segmented into the North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. This report profiles the major companies which contribute significantly to this market. These companies include Geneq Inc. (Canada), Leica Geosystems AG (Switzerland), NavCom Technology, Inc. (U.S.), Septentrio Satellite Navigation NV (Belgium), Sokkia Topcon Co., Ltd. (Japan), Spectra Precision Inc, (U.S.) Trimble Navigation Ltd. (U.S.), Hexagon AB (Sweden), Topcon Positioning Systems Inc. (U.S.), Hemisphere GNSS, Inc. (U.S.), and Javad GNSS, Inc. (U.S.).
