Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The demand for indoor LBS among universities across the world is increasing very rapidly in recent years. Many universities in the developed nations are deploying indoor LBS solutions for student and location tracking. Since most of the university campuses contain multiple buildings and areas with significance, it is difficult for students or people to locate the desired location accurately. Moreover, the indoor LBS applications help the students and users to locate various departments, classrooms, and other places of interest such as libraries and cafeterias accurately. In addition, it also helps the universities to track the students inside their campus. Further, the wireless local area network deployed by the universities enables them to use indoor LBS in their campus. Thus, the increasing usage of indoor LBS in universities is an emerging trend being witnessed in the market.”

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing adoption of local area networks for the positioning of objects and people. Therefore, the deployment of local area networks such as Wi-Fi and WLAN in important buildings is increasing. This is mainly due to the availability of high-speed mobile broadband networks and the decreasing deployment cost. In addition, most of the business organizations and university campuses are adopting private networks for their data security and to provide seamless connections to their employees and students.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the lack of reliability and accuracy of searched and navigated information. The accuracy of real-time location-based search results is measured by the relevance of the information provided by the location-based search providers. However, due to the lack of accurate positioning technologies, users fail to locate the target's position accurately.

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 vendors.
