Location-Based Services (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) Market by Component (Hardware, Software and Services), Location Type (Indoor and Outdoor), Vertical, Region - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: TC 2371 Aug, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[165 Pages Report] MarketsandMarkets projects the Location-Based Services (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS)market to grow from USD 16.0 billion in 2019 to USD 40.0 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 20.1% during the forecast period. Major factors expected to drive the growth of the Location based services market include various applications of geospatial data; growing demand for LBS and RTLS for industry applications; proliferation of social media, smartphones, and location-based apps among consumers; and growing demand for geomarketing.

Location Based Services (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) Market

By location type, outdoor location to hold a larger market size during the forecast period

Based on location type, the global Location based services market is segmented into indoor and outdoor location types.

Outdoor positioning locates data, assets, or people in an open area using Global Positioning System (GPS), satellites, Infrared radiation (IR)-based remote sensing, and other positioning technologies with style mapping, which provide navigation services. It is used to trace long-distance objects or people from any location. The major outdoor positioning technologies include Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), cellular networks, and wireless networks. The most popular GNSS deployed on mobile devices is the GPS. Many positioning techniques and methods have been developed based on high-accuracy GPS chips, differential GPS, and assisted-GPS.

Major applications of outdoor LBS include geo-marketing and advertising, asset tracking, personal tracking, customer location tracking, fleet tracking, freight management, route optimization and planning, mapping discovery and infotainment, geographic event alerts, and defense management. For instance, GNSS enables logistics operators to monitor goods and assets during their transfer between different transport nodes and hubs. The GNSS-based data, such as positioning and timing, in combination with information on the status of the container and the cargo, and RFID positioning, can be used for asset and goods identification at hubs. This information is used by the logistic operators to improve the efficiency of transportation activities.

Application support and maintenance services segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Among services, the application support and maintenance segment is expected to witness a higher growth rate than the deployment and integration, and consulting and advisory services segment during the forecast period. Application-specific support and maintenance services are offered after the installation of the LBS and RTLS solution in an organization. These services include assistance provided during installation and maintenance activities for data and software/solutions maintenance. The services can be offered from remote places, via web conferencing, telephones, and ticketing systems or via onsite assistance. An end user may require the help of an LBS and RTLS vendor for further customization or improvement in the system, for which the vendor provides services for a predetermined duration.

Location Based Services (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) Market

North America to account for the largest market size during the forecast period.

North America is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period. The US has emerged as the largest market for LBS and RTLS owing to the large-scale implementation of LBS and RTLS by organizations and enterprises in the country. The high pace of development of infrastructure in the US, along with the high growth of Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and cloud computing, can be attributed to the fast growth of the Location based services market in the US.

The 2 major contributors to the overall market are the US and Canada.  In the US, transportation and logistics, retail, manufacturing, and government and public utilities are the segments that hold the largest market chunk. The market growth in North America is attributed to continuous technological advancements in this field, increasing industry standards of LBS and RTLS, and enhanced financial support from the government. The region has also witnessed a proliferation of startups in the Location based services market. Out of the 340 startups analyzed for the report, 79% of startups are from the North American region.

Key Location Based Services Market Players

Key and emerging market players include Aruba Networks (US), Cisco (US), Google (US), Esri (US), IBM (US), Microsoft (US), Oracle (US), TomTom (Netherlands), Teldio (Canda), HERE (Netherlands), Ericsson (Sweden), Foursquare (US), Navigine (US), AiRISTA Flow (US), Quuppa (Finland), Ubisense (UK), Apple (US), Qualcomm (US), STANLEY Healthcare (US), GE Healthcare (US), CenTrak (US), Spime (US), KDDI (Japan), NTT Docomo (Japan), and Zebra Technologies (US). These players have adopted various strategies to grow in the LBS and RTLS market. The companies are focused on inorganic and organic growth strategies to strengthen their market position.

Location-based advertising for enhanced customer experience is expected to be Google’s key focus in the indoor location market. Moreover, several maps with indoor images and street views have been added to Google Maps, using the indoor mapping technology. Google’s product, Latitude, was discontinued in 2013 to introduce a better and more advanced product in the indoor location industry. The consistent introduction of indoor map features in Google Maps shows that the company largely applies organic growth strategies of new product launches and upgradations to become a leader in the market. Asia Pacific (APAC) and the Middle East are Google’s prime target regions to deploy its indoor location maps and explore more opportunities for growth in the market. In February 2017, Google Maps was updated for Android with a new User Interface (UI) to offer its Android users with relevant information, including improvement of transit time, traffic data, local places, and the recommendations feature. In November 2016, Google launched Tango, an augmented reality system for smartphones. Furthermore, Google is trying to expand its base in the Location based services market by implementing inorganic growth strategies. In September 2016, Google acquired Urban Engines, a location-based analytics firm.

Esri’s business strategy is to offer innovative products and solutions to its clients for its future growth. Furthermore, the company seeks new growth opportunities through its wide-array of product portfolio and offerings in the LBS and RTLS market. Esri is highly focused on building strategic partnerships and launching new products. For instance, in January 2018, Esri announced its advanced network capabilities for utilities as a part of the ArcGIS platform. The ArcGIS Utility Network Management extension combines an advanced system of record with LBS analytics. The company helps Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises to anticipate opportunities for business growth and enhance their business processes.

Furthermore, the company is working toward serving the needs of its clients more efficiently by technologically updating its products and solutions. It has been competently expanding its business lines by undertaking efficient inorganic growth strategies. For instance, in June 2018, Esri announced the integration of the ArcGIS software into SAP's cloud-based offering, SAP HANA spatial services, assisting its customers to build location-aware business applications. Moreover, in February 2018, Esri announced an update of its existing ArcGIS platform to enhance user experience.
