Global Indoor Location Application Platforms Market Dynamics

Drivers: Growing Popularity of big data analytics

The adoption of big data analytics across retail, logistics, manufacturing, and government has been assisted by a significant increase in big data. Big data is rising in popularity as the world is becoming more digitalized. According to the ITU, more than 4.1 billion individuals, or 51% of the world population, were connected to the internet in 2019, up from 2.3 million in 1990. Since these 4.1 billion individuals generate data every second, big data analytics has increased in popularity. There may be a connection between a good data management strategy and a company's financial performance, which has enabled businesses to reach the market faster with products and services that meet customer requirements. The gathering, organizing, and analyzing massive quantities of data to uncover relevant information is known as big data analytics. It can assist organizations in understanding the information included in recorded data and identify the most critical data critical to business choices. By evaluating customers' options and preferences, big data analytics assists businesses in collecting product-related data. As a result, the indoor location application platform market will profit from the rise of big data analytics.

Restraints: Concerns related to data security and privacy obstruct adoption of indoor location Application Platforms

Location-based data is extremely sensitive data that must be protected in all situations. However, a close inspection of the technical details of indoor location platforms discloses several concerns and fears. Indoor location-based technologies are used in various applications, including object tracking and locating people within a specific range. Because individuals spend so much time indoors, accurate indoor location information is crucial for users and service providers. Indoor location information can be obtained using various technologies, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and RFID, all of which demand data, security, and privacy.

Opportunities: The rising need for contact-tracing solutions due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Several indoor location solutions providers have launched new products or improved current products to meet the demand of their customers during the COVID-19 pandemic to capitalize on the rising demand for contact-tracing solutions. For instance, Ubisense introduced its new enterprise contact-tracing solution in May 2020 to protect workers and reduce company downtime. Ubisense has launched the earlier solution for businesses to recover control over productivity and revenue to protect workers and boost productivity.

Various businesses and organizations across the world have restarted operations after the COVID-19-induced lockdown was ended. Since early data suggests that COVID-19 spreads considerably more quickly indoors than outdoors, some companies have initiated measures to track employees' activities and track interactions to prevent offices and factories from becoming new infection centers. A single case of COVID-19, on either hand, has the potential to shut down an entire facility and require decontamination before activities can restart. Companies are adopting different preventive steps, including adopting contact-tracing technologies, to avoid such a situation.
