GPS IndustryGPS Equipment Revenue, World Market, Moderate Forecast Source: ABI INCGPS has matured to rapidly growing multi-billion dollar industry. According to ABISales will reach $22 billion by 2008. Equipment for automotive and asset tracking will make up 50% of the global GPS market and continue to gain through 2008.The GPS market has a compound annual growth rate of 22.4%.
GPS OverviewWhat is GPS?The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites and their ground stations. The satellites circle the planet twice a day in precise orbits transmitting signals back to earth. The GPS unit compares the time the signal that was transmitted with the time it was received. The time difference tells how far it is away from the satellite, with measurements from multiple satellites, it can determine the units position down to the meter. GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
