Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region Becomes the Second Largest Industrial Area for Satellite Navigation
With an annual output value of 66.9 billion yuan in 2018, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region has become the second largest industrial area for satellite navigation and location service. Yesterday, the reporter learned from Beijing University-Enterprise Collaborative Innovation 2019 -- an event themed “‘BeiDou’ Leads Science & Technology, Innovation Shapes a Better Future” that industrial areas for satellite navigation and location service have taken shape in the Pearl River Delta, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Yangtze River Delta, the central China including Hubei, Henan and Hu’nan, the western China including Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Chongqing, and the annual output value of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region ranked second.
In 2018, the total output value of China’s industry for satellite navigation and location service reached 301.6 billion yuan, an increase of 18.3% over 2018. Among them, the core output value covering chip, device, algorithm, software, navigation data, terminal equipment, and infrastructure accounted for 35.44%, reaching 106.9 billion yuan. The contribution rate of BeiDou to the industrial core output value reached 80%. Furthermore, the related output value derived or directly driven by the application of satellite navigation technology, including application data and software, various application integration systems and location-based operation services, was 194.7 billion yuan.
At present, five major industrial areas for satellite navigation and location services has come into being in the Pearl River Delta, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Yangtze River Delta, the central China including Hubei, Henan and Hu’nan, the western China including Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Chongqing, with their total output value up to 238.8 billion yuan, taking up 79.6% of the national output value. Of them, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei industrial area is the second in output value, with 66.9 billion yuan in 2018. As the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region continues to deepen, the BeiDou application has been expanded across such areas as urban management, vehicle supervision, and agriculture.
