Increased Demand for GPS Driving the Market for Rugged Handheld Devices
TechNavio today published its report Global Rugged Handheld Devices Market 2010–2014. The report discusses the significant trends impacting this market.
TechNavio’s report highlights that the increasing penetration of GIS and GPS in the global market is increasing the demand for Rugged Handheld Devices (RHDs). The GIS enabled handsets and handheld devices are prone to highly vulnerable conditions. Especially, portable navigation devices should be built with robust methodology, as they are meant for usage in rough conditions. The increasing familiarity of the GPS devices and applications among the consumers also increases the demand for rugged mobile phones as well.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Hardware team said, “Despite the fact that the handheld devices such as barcode scanners are designed to be used by the employees at the lower level of the hierarchical pyramid, these devices are not built strong enough to withstand rough handling and physical damage. Especially, 2D scanners have to be handled with great care. To avoid these challenges, vendors are now developing devices that can withstand rough and careless handling.”
Key findings from the report:
- Demand for Integrated Data Handling
- High Probability for Vendor Lock-in
- Application-specific Rugged Handheld Devices
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key players.
