Location Based Services Market Overview:


The global Location Based Services market was valued at USD 26,648.9 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 112,073 million by the end of 2030 growing at a CAGR of 18.1%.


Location-based services (LBS) are being deployed for more than a decade all across the globe. It was mainly used for navigation but now it is being used across all verticals and has a plethora of applications. For instance, in retail, LBS enhances to drive traffic to specific departments by presenting easy navigation to products; while in the healthcare sector, LBS technology has been successfully applied to minimize revenue loss due to missed appointments by guiding patients from home to their doctor's office within the hospital.


A location-based service can give mobile workers and consumers with targeted spatial information. Utility location information, personal or asset tracking, concierge and route-guidance information are just a few examples of LBS. LBS technologies and applications will become increasingly significant in today's mobile, always-connected society. Amidst the nationwide full /partial lockdown across the globe due to the spread of COVID19, the demand for location based services has decreased compared to the pre-COVID time. Analyzing the trends and the nature/characteristic of COVID-19, even in post COVID time, when people have to follow social distancing and will have to avoid huge gathering, the demand for location-based services is expected to be low.



  • On Oct. 18, 2022, Rx Networks, Inc., a US-based GNSS data services company, announced collaboration with Qualcomm to make TruePoint.io precise location services available on Qualcomm's 5G mobile platforms - Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 888. TruePoint.io integration would empower Android smartphone users to achieve enhanced location accuracy, which was possible only with high-grade receivers. 



  • With enhanced location accuracy, applications such as rideshare, micro-mobility, health & fitness, and lane-level requirement can be realized. Enabling reliable meter-level location accuracy on mobile phones would unlock the potential of location-based services and innovative & unique use cases. 


COVID-19 Impact vs  Opportunities for Global Location Based Services Market:


As more people stay home as a part of quarantine measures, there has been a drastic decrease in the footfall across the retail sector and the media and entertainment businesses. Businesses that depend on person-to-person interaction and those that attract large groups of people have mostly been shut down. This has led to a marked decrease from such establishments for location-based services.


According to an estimated that the global shipments of wearables is reached approximately 370 million by the end of 2020. The increasing adoption of wearable technology has created an ecosystem of GPS-enabled devices that can help with navigation and location tracking. The increased availability of cellular wearables has allowed people to leave their mobile phones at home and go for a run or engage in fitness activities without relying on their mobile phones for activity tracking. These applications have led to an increased usage of location-based services on wearables and provided a new market avenue for location-based service providers.



  • On Jun. 16, 2021, Bringg, a leading provider of retail, logistics, and last-mile delivery management solutions, announced raising US $100M in a Series E round of funding to enable a last-mile delivery platform for retailers who are witnessing rapid growth in online sales even after COVID 19 mandates subdue.



  • Considering many consumers switching to online shopping in the last year due to COVID-19, Bringg built software that helps retailers with last-mile logistics to manage and tap people fulfilling deliveries. Companies enabling those services continue to see a lot of business and attention.


Location-Based Services Market Dynamics:


Drivers:



  • The usage of location-based applications has increased exponentially over the past few years. The rise in the usage of ride-hailing applications, in general, has led to an increase in the usage of such applications. Navigation, geo-marketing, gaming, fitness, and health tracking, and social networking are some of the other applications of location-based applications.


Opportunities:



  • Increase demand for wearable devices have led to an increased usage of location-based services.


Restraint:



  • Because the entire cost of acquiring an RTLS solution is still higher than that of more existing approaches such as barcodes and Passive RFID, end users want to evaluate the investment cost with the return on investment (ROI). Pricing is not a big deciding factor in very critical business applications where RTLS is an absolute necessity. End users calculate ROI in terms of man hours saved, money saved by decreasing asset and inventory loss and damage, and enhanced business margins due to increased sales.



  • On Jan. 20, 2022, GL Communications Inc., a leading global provider of telecom test & measurement solutions, announced the simulation of its location-based services in mobile networks. The simulation of GL's location services (LCS) test suite would enhance the support emulation of location services on GSM, UMTS, and LTE networks. 



  • This would further respond to the need for pinpoint user location solutions, which persist through a massively scalable suite of tools and a high-quality database for mobile location services. Mobile location services infrastructure focuses on mobile positioning that can enhance functionalities, interfaces, and communication messages necessary to implement the positioning functionality in a cellular network.
