Executive Summary of the Global LBS Forecast

Global market for consumer-centric LBS to rise to $7.85 billion in 2013, a CAGR of 57.8%
While growth in the LBS market has not been spectacular in the past, we think that the increasing availability of GPS handsets in the next five years will help accelerate adoption for LBS across the world

? In the last year, out of 870 model launches, 287 handsets (or 33%) had GPS capability. We think that this ratio will likely rise to 45% - 50% of handsets by 2013, resulting in greater ubiquity of LBS.
? We are forecasting a total addressable global market for consumer-centric LBS to rise by a CAGR of 57.8% to $7.85 billion in 2013, from $1.27 billion in 2009.

Location Enabled Search and Advertising will see the biggest growth , growing at a CAGR of 260% over the next five years
While Voice-guided In-Car Navigation will continue to be the main use for consumer-centric LBS applications in the next 2-3 years, we think that Location Enabled Search and Advertising will see big take-up from 2010 onward

? Globally, we think that Location Enabled Search and Advertising will see total spend rise from $20 million in 2008 to $3.4 billion in 2013, making it the fastest growing segment in the LBS market place.
? We think that by 2013, there will be 706 million unique users of Location Enabled Search and Advertising with 8.6 billion click thrus.
? Globally, we are forecasting that Cost per Click to advertisers will decline only marginally over the next five years from 42¢ in 2009 to 39¢ in 2013.

The future of LBS is in Location Enabled Search and Advertising
Location enabled searches are becoming increasingly popular:

? Our channel checks with leading service providers suggest that a larger proportion of mobile searches are conducted through local searches or point of interest applications.
? Our channel checks also suggest that web-based search applications such as Google Maps and Yahoo OneSearch are getting better traction in the mobile space.
? Our analysis of click thru rates for mobile advertising support our assumption that click thrus are going to see a major upswing in the 2010 - 2011 period.

Voice Guided In Car Navigation users will rise to 47.3 million users in 2013
We are expecting total spend on Voice Guided In Car Navigation to rise to $2.6 billion in 2013

? In our view, a number of factors are driving the adoption of handset-based navigation in cars. These include:
? Pre-installed GPS navigation in vehicles in North American and European markets.
? Flexible pricing models such as monthly, weekly and per route subscriptions.
? Increasing convergence of devices for use both in the car and outside it.
? As in all technologies, we are forecasting that monthly ARPUs for Voice Guided In Car Navigation services will drop from $5.87 in 2009 to $4.59 in 2013.
? Our surveys show that ARPUs for Voice Guided In Car Navigation is more sticky than other LBS services (such as maps and map applications), primarily because individuals likely to install these devices in their cars are not as price sensitive as the overall population.
