Indoor segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Indoor positioning tracks all the data, objects, or people within an enclosed area using magnetic fields, acoustic signals, radio waves, or other sensory information collected by connected devices. The technology helps in recording real-time monitoring of data to visualize a visitors' behavior and preferences. Earlier, GPS was used for the same purpose. However, due to signal interference from hard walls, indoor location positioning technologies were introduced. Unlike GPS, there is no single standard method for indoor navigation. For instance, Google uses Wi-Fi technology to track a location while Broadcom chip supports indoor location systems through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Apple released iBeacon, a BLE-based technology, to provide location-based information and services to iPhones and other iOS devices. Navigation systems for indoor locations were built to acquire highly accurate localization and address the inefficiencies of GPS in such locations.
Location-based health monitoring segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
An increasing number of LBS-based applications focus on healthcare, particularly on exercise and fitness monitoring, remote health monitoring, fall detection, and lone worker protection among others. In recent years, there has been a trend in integrating LBS with other wearable sensors (to sense heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature) for health monitoring and providing personalized healthcare information and services. LBS is also being used as assistive technology to enable visually impaired people and differently-abled and elderly people to perform their daily living activities independently and experience an improved quality of life. These assistive systems provide assisted-living functions, such as personalized navigation, obstacle detection, space perception, and independent shopping. The increasing awareness relate to preventive healthcare also significantly affected the fitness trend in recent years. Several desk job workers are facing health problems due to reduced physical activity. This, in turn, is expected to lead to an increased number of advanced wellness and fitness solutions. The increasing demand for wellness and fitness solutions as well as wearable devices is expected to boost the demand for location-based health monitoring.
