The Indoor location market size is estimated to grow from USD 4.72 Billion in 2016 to USD 23.13 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 37.4% from 2016 to 2021.

Objectives of the Study:

The main objective of this report is to define, describe, and forecast the global market on the basis of components which include technology, software tools & services, and regions. The report provides detailed information regarding the major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges). The report attempts to forecast the market size with respect to four main regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the Rest of the world (RoW). The report strategically profiles key players and comprehensively analyzes their core competencies. This report also tracks and analyzes competitive developments such as joint ventures, Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A), new product developments, and Research & Development (R&D) activities in the indoor location market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the indoor location market begins with collection and analysis of data on key vendor revenues through secondary research such as annual reports and press releases, investor presentations of companies, white papers, technology journals including SDx Central, Journals of location based services, IEEE Xplore digital library, certified publications, articles from recognized authors, directories, and databases. The vendor offerings have also been taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the total market size of the global market from the revenue of the key solution and service providers in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people, such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and to arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primaries conducted for the report is depicted in the figure below:

MarketsandMarkets estimates the indoor location market size to grow from USD 4.72 Billion in 2016 to USD 23.13 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 37.4%. Major factors contributing to the growth of the market are enhanced customer experience, inefficiency of GPS technology in indoor premises, and reliable assistance to governments for ensuring public safety.

The indoor location market is segmented by component, application, end users, and region. The component segment is further segmented into technology, software tools, and services. The various indoor location technologies are categorized into three major types, namely, Radio Frequency (RF)-based, sensor & tag-based, and others which include (satellite/remote sensing and microwave technologies). The software tools have been segmented into visualization, location analytics, context accelerator, and others which include (data integration & extract-transform-load (ETL) and database management systems. The services include managed and professional services.

Major applications of indoor location technology are risk management, emergency response management, customer experience management, sales & marketing optimization, remote monitoring, predictive asset analytics, inventory management, and others which include (augmented reality and supply chain optimization). The remote monitoring application is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Remote monitoring can provide monitoring solutions at remote locations. Customized remote monitoring solutions help meet specific business requirements such as troubleshooting issues and planning on how specific requirements are met.

The end users of indoor location include transportation, entertainment, public buildings, hospitality, shopping, and others including BFSI, and oil & mining. The shopping segment which includes retail stores, grocery stores, and malls is expected to have the largest market share in the indoor location market. Retail businesses for clothing, food & grocery, and dining make use of indoor location-based solutions to track shoppers’ movements within the facility and extract the intelligence to market their products to the shoppers.

The global indoor location market has been segmented on the basis of regions into the Americas, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, and the Rest of the World (RoW) to provide a region-specific analysis in the report. Americas is expected to have the largest market share and would dominate the indoor location market from 2016 to 2021, due to the presence of a large number of indoor location vendors here. Increase in location-enabled smart phones and tablets are key driving factors for advance growth. APAC offers potential growth opportunities for the market to grow. The existence of large population, developing technology, and affluence are the major contributing factors to the growth of indoor location in this region.

Indoor Location Market

Lack of awareness about the use of indoor location & deployment, and maintenance challenges are restricting the growth of indoor location technology. Lack of knowledge about the technology or its use is becoming one of the biggest challenges to the indoor location market as it hinders customer adoption and acceptance. Also, the network infrastructure needed to implement indoor positioning is different from the usually installed network equipment, which poses a challenge on the selection of those network devices and their deployment.

The major vendors in the indoor location market include Apple Inc. (California, U.S.), Cisco System Inc. (California, U.S.), Google Inc. (California, U.S.), Microsoft Corporation (Washington, U.S.), Qualcomm Technologies Inc. (California, U.S.), Broadcom Ltd. (California, U.S.), Ericsson (Stockholm, Sweden), Zebra Technologies (Illinois, U.S.), Senion (Linköping, Sweden), and STMicroelectronics N.V. (Geneva, Switzerland). These companies adopted various strategies such as new product launches & enhancements, partnerships & agreements, and mergers & acquisition to cater to the needs of the indoor location market.
