The global Location-Based Services (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) market is expected to grow from USD 15.04 Billion in 2016 to USD 77.84 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 38.9%. Several factors, such as increasing availability of spatial data & analytical tools, growing focus on Business Intelligence (BI), increasing market competitiveness, and decreasing cost of solutions are expected to bolster the growth of this market.

The emergence of RTLS has further augmented the opportunity areas for LBS. Additionally, technologies enabling LBS, such as Internet of Things (IoT) and smart wearable devices have played a significant role in enhancing the adoption of leading technologies in this market. The major factors responsible for the upsurge of RTLS include optimum resource utilization through efficient asset tracking & management with the help of RTLS, increasing standardization, declining cost of RTLS hardware & software, technological advancements, and escalating applications in numerous industry sectors ranging from healthcare to defense and government support & funding.

Location analytics technology has emerged as a pioneering tool to drive new opportunities in the market. This technology is supported by advanced software and hardware location-based solutions. Some of the leading software-based solutions include, geocoding & reverse geocoding and context aware technology, while top hardware-based solutions include sensors, readers, and tags & transponders.

The healthcare and life sciences, along with the defense sector account for the largest market share in the overall market. Increasing cyberattacks on government institutions mainly targeted towards compromising critical data and financial information are some of the major factors resulting in high government spending in market. Other high growth sectors include consumer goods & e-commerce, transportation & logistics, and government & public utilities.

Among regions, North America is projected to have the largest market share and is expected to dominate the LBS and RTLS market from 2016 to 2021. Correspondingly during the same period, APAC is expected to showcase a significant growth potential and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR for the market. This is backed by the existence of a large population, increasing customer awareness, developing technology hubs, and affluent countries, such as South Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

However, due to lack of awareness, expertise, and operational challenges, most of the organizations struggle to optimally utilize the full potential of LBS and RTLS technologies. This has been significantly hindering the growth of the market. The technological giants, such as Google, IBM, and Cisco Systems, along with some of the key innovators, such as Pitney Bowes, Tomtom International BV, and Ubisense have created leading location-based systems and platforms. These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as new product launches, partnerships, contracts, collaborations, acquisitions, and expansions to expand their global presence & increase their market shares in the global market.
