Outlook of the global enterprise LBS market

A location-based service, or LBS, helps to track the location of users within a wireless network by utilizing location-enabled mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, personal navigation devices (PND), and certain in-dash devices fitted in vehicles. The global market for enterprise LBS is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period and will be positively affected by the growing popularity of location-based search and advertisement among small, medium, and large enterprises in the retail sector. Furthermore, factors such as the rising utilization of big data analytics for understanding consumer insights, growing smartphone penetration, high adoption of location-based marketing, increased adoption of GPS-enabled devices by enterprises and individual consumers, growing coverage of mobile broadband networks, and the success of new business models will result in this market’s impressive CAGR of more than 23% over the forecast period.

The rising adoption of real-time location systems (RTLS) tags in hospitals is a critical factor that will impel the prospects for growth in this market until the end of 2020. In the healthcare sector, a large number of hospitals are deploying RTLS tags to enhance operations and increase profitability. These tags help in the location of hospital equipment like hospital beds, wheelchairs, ventilators, oxygen cylinders, and infusion pumps, and are also used to monitor sensitive equipment, patients, and hospital staff, including doctors and nurses.
