Recently, the China Satellite Navigation and Positioning Association released the “2022 White Paper on the Development of China’s Satellite Navigation and Location Services Industry” (hereinafter referred to as the White Paper). Among them, the high-precision market has grown very rapidly.


“Deepening the promotion and application of the Beidou system and promoting the high-quality development of the Beidou industry”, the industrial application of Beidou has been included in the “14th Five-Year Plan” and the outline of the 2035 long-term goals. At present, many industries, departments and provinces have selected Beidou applications into the relevant “14th Five-Year Plan”. There is no doubt that Beidou applications and Beidou industries will enter the fast lane of development during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period.


Compared with GPS, Beidou satellite navigation system is a satellite navigation system independently constructed and operated by China focusing on the needs of economic and social development. It is a country that provides global users with all-weather, all-day, high-precision positioning, navigation and timing services. important space-time infrastructure. At present, the Beidou system has been widely used in transportation, communication timing, hydrological monitoring, meteorological forecasting, agriculture, forestry and fishery, power dispatching, disaster relief and mitigation, public safety and other fields, serving important national infrastructure, and producing significant economic and social benefits. .


Not only that, the navigation service based on the Beidou system has also been adopted by enterprises such as mobile intelligent terminal manufacturing, location services, and e-commerce, and has widely entered the fields of mass consumption, sharing economy and people’s livelihood in China. , profoundly changing people’s production and lifestyle. The overall output value of the satellite navigation and location services industry is now experiencing significant growth.


The China Satellite Navigation and Positioning Association released the “2022 White Paper on the Development of China’s Satellite Navigation and Location Services Industry” in Beijing. In 2021, the overall output value of my country’s satellite navigation and location service industry will reach 469 billion yuan, an increase of 16.29% over 2020. Among them, the core output value of the industry including chips, algorithms, navigation data, software, devices, terminal equipment, infrastructure, etc. directly related to the research and development and application of satellite navigation technology increased by about 12.28% year-on-year.


The white paper shows that in 2021, the total shipments of Beidou high-precision chips, modules and boards for centimeter-level applications in China will continue to grow, reaching 1.2 million pieces. High precision is the characteristic service of China Beidou. Affected by atmospheric errors, satellite clock errors, etc., the error of ordinary satellite positioning accuracy is about 10 meters. However, the Beidou system provides dynamic centimeter-level and static millimeter-level high-precision positioning services for various intelligent devices through continuous observation and calculation of various error correction information.


In recent years, high-precision service users have grown rapidly, the high-precision market has exploded in recent years, and high-precision applications have clearly shown a trend of generalization and scale. The main application scenarios include drones, intelligent networked vehicles, robots, automatic driving of agricultural machinery, intelligent buildings, surveying and mapping instruments, etc. The white paper shows that revenue related to high-precision location services reached 15.19 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of more than 33%.


With the continuous breakthroughs in basic product technologies such as chips, the Beidou system is increasingly perfected and its capabilities are improved, and my country’s independent innovation capabilities in the field of satellite navigation and location services continue to improve, providing a solid foundation for the vigorous development of the Beidou industry. It is believed that from indoor to outdoor, deep sea to deep space, users can enjoy full coverage and highly reliable navigation, positioning and timing services, and the Beidou satellite navigation system will better serve the world and benefit mankind.
