DUBLIN, Oct. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Enterprise Indoor LBS Market in the US 2014-2018" report to their offering.
Indoor location-based services (LBS) are used to track the location of an object or people within a building or a specific location such as a university campus. The indoor LBS are confined to a very limited geography; hence, they use only wireless networks such as Wi-Fi and WLAN that cover a small area. In addition, the indoor LBS require a high accuracy to locate the position of the object or device. Because of this, they use positioning technologies based on Wi-Fi, WLAN, UWB, Bluetooth, A-GPS, MEMS, and other hybrid technologies. Indoor LBS are mainly used in universities, hospitals, stadiums, shopping malls, government offices, airports, museums, convention centers, hotels, resorts, and parking areas.
The analysts forecast the Enterprise Indoor LBS market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 43.48 percent over the period 2013-2018.

According to the report, one of the key drivers in this market is the increased adoption of LBS for its cost-effectiveness. Indoor LBS comes with very low implementation costs and zero uncertainty.
