Declining Prices, Rising Demand Driving Global GPS Technology Market (June 10th, 2008)

The global GPS market is expected to grow 17% by 2010 due to rising affordability, easy operating functions and increasing acceptability by the mass market.

The use of GPS technology in new applications is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace due to increasing availability of GPS-enabled devices and continuously falling prices, says RNCOS in its new research report, “World GPS Market Forecast to 2012”. As the prices are continuously declining, the sales of GPS devices have observed a sharp increase in consumer exposure as the navigation devices have become more affordable.

As a result, says the report, the global market for mobile location technologies is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17% from 2007 to 2010.

As per the report, this 17% growth in GPS systems is supported by the portability feature of the systems. This feature enables the use of same GPS receiver both off-road and while walking in a strange town, bicycling, hiking, and boating, or locating landmarks such as restaurants or gas stations on long road trips.

Moreover, mass adoption of any technology largely depends upon its affordability to the general consumer. So increasing consumer exposure and rising demand for GPS navigation devices worldwide have prompted manufacturers to cut down the prices and make the devices even more affordable with easier operating functions to mass market, adds the research report.
