Report Description

Military operations mostly rely on real time data in order to carry out precision attacks, and hence the use of GPS-enabled devices is rapidly increasing. Military experiences can be enhanced by using GPS-enabled devices. Military forces are highly dependent on satellite technology for their mission critical applications such as communications and accurate positioning. Use of GPS enabled devices in the military sector is increasing significantly in order to perform mission critical operations efficiently. GPS-enabled devices provide not only tracking and navigation but also precise digital mapping. GPS systems receive information from GPS satellites and then find out the geographical position of a device. Various operations such as target acquisition, search and rescue, command and control, and many more can be done with the help of GPS systems.  Several countries are planning to develop unmanned vehicles with GPS enabled devices to perform specialized tasks with high levels of efficiency and precision. These unmanned vehicles withstand dangerous situations and hazardous chemicals in war zones. GPS enabled unmanned vehicles are primarily used to protect soldiers from dangerous circumstances that can potentially harm their life. A number of nations are launching satellite navigation systems to get more precise and accurate signals. They are also introducing GPS guided missiles to overcome jamming effects. In collaboration with several defense companies, defense ministries are primarily focusing on the reduction in overall cost of installing GPS enabled devices in various military platforms.                                                                        

Implementation of new technologies and an increasing range of military applications for GPS devices are expected to have a positive impact on the industry. High-tech gadgets, advanced robots, and drones are recent advancements in military technology. Increasing demand for satellite navigation and communication is one of the prime factors driving the growth of the global military GPS device market.

Integration of satellite navigation technology with other navigation systems is trending in the military sector in order to derive accurate information in a short period of time. Helicopters and other aircrafts are mostly dependent on GPS-enabled systems for precise navigation. Increasing investment in GPS enabled systems and ongoing technological advancements in various devices are anticipated to boost the market over the forecast period. However, susceptibility to spoofing and jamming attacks may hamper the growth of the global military GPS device market. Failure of receivers to connect directly to the network is another challenge that armed forces are facing. Anti-jamming GPS devices and differential global positioning systems (DGPS) are latest trending factors in the global military GPS device market.

The global military GPS device market can be segmented by application, end users, and geography. On the basis of application, the market can be segmented into tracking, navigation, unmanned systems and others. On the basis of end users, the market can be divided into navy, marine, airborne, and land. Airborne segment is expected to dominate the market in future owing to the increasing need for real time navigation and trafficking. Geographically, the global military GPS device market can be segmented into . Military GPS-enabled devices have been adopted by the American military for accurate target tracking. The North America region is anticipated to witness significant growth due to the introduction of advanced navigation technologies that offer enhanced navigation.
