Satellite-based Augmentation Systems Market Worldwide Overview By Industry Growth, Business Demands-2021

Global Satellite-based Augmentation Systems Market – Overview

 According to a recent study report published by Market Research Future, the global market for satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS) will grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period. The market is expected to witness slow but steady growth until 2021, which will be a growing fast at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period (2017 -2021).  

The high demand for satellite-based augmentation systems market is due to the growing development of ATC infrastructure, need for authentic and accurate information to avoid errors, and rise in the development of airport construction and modernization, thus increasing the participation of manufacturers. Rapid technology advancement, along with increased focus of OEMs on providing accurate and precise navigation system, is expected to result in an increase in aircraft expenses and add to the growth of the market. However, the cost associated with Air Traffic Management (ATM) infrastructure modernization and retrofitting older aircraft with upgraded systems act as a barrier to the growth of satellite-based augmentation systems market. The revolution of modern electronic systems results in many aircraft manufacturers upgrading technologies with new avionics.

The satellite-based augmentation systems market is completely dependent on the expansion of air passenger traffic. Thus, the increasing or decreasing demand for air passenger traffic directly has an impact on the market. Moreover, other factors responsible for the growth of the satellite-based augmentation systems market are demand for avionics system with gen-next aircraft, demand for accurate flight navigation, capability of handling more air traffic, collision avoidance systems, gyroscopes, and integration of early warning radar. This is the primary factor that drives the growth of the global satellite-based augmentation systems market and has gained prevalence in the recent times, with the usage of best in class technologies in the aircraft industry. Thus, the growth of the satellite-based augmentation systems market is expected to go hand in hand with the growth of investment in the aircraft sector.

The main objective of developing satellite-based augmentation systems is to produce an accuracy of the position of the navigation system, integrity of information, reliability of the system throughout the flight operation, and availability of GPS system. SBAS offers an economic opportunity for airports, while not putting in ground-based navigation aids. SBAS consists of a network of stations to receive and process satellite signals. The SBAS systems consist of Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), Multi-functional Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS), and GPS-Aided Geo-Augmentation Navigation (GAGAN), which are designed in compliance with regulatory norms in satellite-based navigation.
