World GPS Market Forecast to 2012

Description:    Global Positioning System (GPS) is a revolutionary tool, which provides unequalled accuracy and
                flexibility of positioning for navigation, surveying and Geographic information system (GIS) data
                capture. Growing use in automotive and consumer applications is propelling the market for mobile
                location technologies. Although standalone products are quite popular, the most common
                applications are built around Portable Navigation Devices (PNDs), mobile phones, or car navigation
                systems. Moreover, the technology is fast gaining acceptance worldwide, as it is penetrating into
                previously untapped areas, says “World GPS Market Forecast to 2012”.

                The report provides a comprehensive review on the market trends, drivers, challenges, and
                opportunities that are vital for the success of GPS industry across the world. Analysis is presented
                for major geographic markets such as the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and other Asian countries
                like India and China. The report gives a detailed analysis on the end-user applications, including In-
                Vehicle Navigation, Survey/Mapping, Machine Control and others.

                Key Findings

                 - Currently, Japan has the highest in-vehicle navigation system penetration followed by North
                American and European countries.
                 - The 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and Shanghai World Expo in 2010 are expected to trigger an
                explosion in the commercial telematics market in China.
                 - With the rapid development of GPS market in countries like China and India, majority of
                navigation systems are anticipated to be shipped in Asia-Pacific by 2012.
                 - Taiwan has emerged as a manufacturing destination for GPS products on the global map,
                attracting major players to set up their production facilities in the country.
                 - With the growing demand for navigational services, the global market for Location Based
                Services (LBS) is likely to grow at a CAGR of more than 104%.
                 - As of 2007, PNDs dominated the GPS device market with more than 90% market share.
                However, this share is expected to get disturbed by the availability of GPS-enabled handsets that
                will account for an estimated 78% market share by 2012 end.
                 - Opportunities remain untapped for various vertical segments of GPS market, like in new
                advanced access devices, chipset availability, and PND market.
