Asia is a key region for GNSS in many ways. Firstly, the Asia-Pacific rim is a hotspot for satellite signal reception and is likely to be at the forefront of multi-constellation (multi-GNSS) usage, which will result in increased accuracy, availability, and reliability for the fast-growing population of GNSS users in Asia. Furthermore, Asia is the manufacturing hub of GNSS downstream equipment, chipsets, and receivers and home to some of the most innovative technology companies. Many Asian companies are increasingly taking key positions along the GNSS value chain, and several countries in the region are starting to produce significant amounts of locally developed innovations. Multinational companies have recognised this blooming sector and are investing heavily in local R&D, turning Asia into a powerhouse of innovative advancement. In light of the favourable economic growth prospects for the majority of countries in emerging Asia, the region's overall growth momentum remains robust, offering countless new short- and long-term opportunities for increased international cooperation and trade.
