Insight by End-User

In 2021, the transportation & logistics segment held a large revenue size in the global market, owing to the extensive requirement for providing better mobility support to passengers at airports and railway stations to navigate them in the right direction and right place. In addition, indoor location is also gaining wide popularity in transportation & logistics as it brings facilities to identify customer behavior, provide valuable information that helps in building magnified advertising campaigns, and optimize services.

On the contrary, the retail and e-commerce segment is projected to register a significant growth rate in the overall market. Factors such as the rise in the presence of e-commerce transactions in the retail sector to provide exceptional customer experience, along with the growing focus of e-commerce companies to provide additional benefits for promoting efficiency in business operations, are likely to act as a key factor for driving the market growth worldwide.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America dominated the global market in 2020 and is estimated for the significant revenue share on account of the rising indoor location adoption to improve resource utilization and asset tracking facilities. Furthermore, the region also has a large availability of vendors and organizations with extensive business operations and customers, further contributing to the region's higher market growth.

Rising investments in the development of various technologies and applications of indoor locations, coupled with increasing implementation and acceptance of BLE beacons technology, are a few factors that considerably pave the market growth in the region.

For instance, in 2018, the top Venture Capital investors in the IoT tech space were Baidu, Amazon Alexa Fund, Robert Bosch, Intel Capital, Khosla Ventures, Parkwalk Advisors, Northern Light Venture Capital, General Catalyst Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, and GV Management. The investors participated in 52 funding rounds, equating to a total proportionate investment of USD 350.2 million in 2018. Such investments in technology development are responsible for the high adoption of an indoor location in the region.

Moreover, Asia-Pacific is projected to observe a significant growth rate over the forecast period of 2022-2029. Asian countries have undergone the most remarkable transformation initiatives regarding digital technology across enterprises and different industry verticals in the last few years. The growth of industries, particularly the retail, transportation, and communication sectors, is gaining massive momentum, creating a lucrative demand for indoor locations.

In addition, several companies and institutes are stepping up to unveil sophisticated BLE modules. For instance, in 2018, the Tokyo Institute of Technology launched a "Bluetooth Low-Energy transceiver" with comparatively low power consumption for use in the popular 2.4 GHz band. This new BLE transceiver set a breakthrough to accelerate the widespread development of indoor locations in Japan and the overall Asian region.
