Geofencing Market Trends

Increasing smartphone usage is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for geofencing is being driven by the rising penetration of smartphones. Internet usage and smartphone ownership have both increased dramatically in recent years. The Indian Cellular and Electronics Association estimates that by 2022, there were 829 million smartphone users worldwide. Also, the number of smartphone users is anticipated to rise from 6.05 billion in 2020 to almost 7.33 billion by 2025, per Ericsson and The Radicati Group predictions. Smart, GPS-enabled, and location-aware smartphones are becoming increasingly popular, promoting market expansion. Geofencing allows businesses to target specific customers by personalizing their notifications and adverts and sending them in real time. This increases consumer engagement, which is driving the industry's expansion. If notifications are relevant and location-based, their click rate also rises. A versatile marketing strategy that gives many alternatives based on budget, geofencing is cost-effective. As a result, numerous businesses use it more frequently, fueling market expansion.

Mobile location-based applications, such as GPS navigation, perform poorly inside airports, medical facilities, and retail establishments. Moreover, the GPS cannot tell the user what floor and level of the building they are on. Hence, providing a location-based application could make navigating easier for these users. Enterprise location-based systems, which are more precise than GPS, can allow airport apps to direct users around the terminal. For instance, Infsoft offers airports indoor navigation services. Similarly, enterprise location-based services in medical facilities can send staff, patients, and visitors to the proper spot. This will improve patients' overall experiences by easing the strain at the front desk and assisting patients in showing up on time for their appointments. Thus, driving the geofencing market revenue.

Geofencing Market Segment Insights

Geofencing Component Insights

The Geofencing Market segmentation, based on components, includes solutions and services. In terms of sales CAGR, the solutions segment led in 2022. Through GPS location technologies, retailers have enhanced customer experiences and provided precise navigation for any objects or locations. With GPS location solutions, businesses can link those inside large areas with their partners, brands, and products in various ways that will strengthen their relationships with customers and increase sales. Furthermore, the service sector is growing at the fastest growth rate. Due to the need to adapt to changing technologies that may be employed for market advancement, the services segment accounts for a high adoption rate in the overall geofencing market.

Geofencing Type Insights

The Geofencing Market segmentation, based on geofencing type, includes fixed and mobile. Throughout the anticipated term, the fixed segment's market share will expand at a major rate. A virtual fence surrounding a place, a structure, or any other fixed object is known as fixed geofencing. Many sectors use fixed geofencing, including retail, healthcare, hospitality, transportation and logistics, and industrial manufacturing. Geofencing aids merchants in boosting foot traffic in their physical stores in the retail sector. However, the mobile sector will experience significant growth. By sending out regular alert notifications whenever a vehicle breaches the geofenced location, geofencing aids in securing organizational assets. This severely restricts car theft as well. The ability to quickly assess the success of a geofencing campaign is one of the main advantages of mobile geofencing.
