The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the location-based services market in Africa: Foursquare, Google, MTN Group, HERE, and TomTom.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “A trend boosting market growth is the increased use of 3D platforms. The use of geospatial information has grown considerably over the years. Companies such as Atos use GIS platforms with LBS to offer services to businesses involved in supply chain management, data centers, infrastructure development, urban planning, risk and emergency management, navigation, and healthcare.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the use of indoor LBS applications for public safety and emergency support. Public safety includes the use of location information for emergency response, as well as the protection of individuals and assets. Indoor LBS locates and tracks emergency callers and public safety officers. In addition, LBS enable monitoring of areas sensitive to law and order disruptions through virtual geo-fence technology.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the lack of accuracy and reliability of navigation information.

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.
