Dublin, Nov. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Location-based Services (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) Market with COVID-19 Impact Analysis by Component (Platform, Services, Hardware), Location Type (Indoor, Outdoor), Application, Vertical, and Region - Forecast to 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global Location-based Service (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) market is expected to grow USD 20 billion in 2021 to USD 48.5 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.4% during the forecast period.

The global Location-based Service (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) market is gaining traction due growing demand for LBS and RTLS for industry-specific applications is expected to drive the overall growth Location-based Service (LBS) and Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) market.

LBS and location tracking technologies are becoming disruptive and transformative for many businesses in sectors, such as healthcare, transportation, retail, advertisement, and public administration. The major application areas of RTLS include inventory/asset tracking and management; personnel/staff locating and monitoring; access control and security; environmental monitoring; yard, dock, fleet, and warehouse management and monitoring; and supply chain management and operational automation/visibility.

Many new applications of LBS and RTLS, such as location-based social media networks, location-based gaming, location-based health monitoring, and transport LBS, have emerged in recent years. Mapping and navigation systems are the major systems using LBS. The transport sector has been one of the major adopters of LBS applications, which include the use of LBS for driver assistance, fleet management, and passenger information. For instance, for driver assistance and passenger guidance, LBS enables locating available on-street parking spaces, safety warnings to the drivers, and multimodal routing for fleets.

By Application, the tracking and navigation segment to grow at the higher market size during the forecast period

LBS and RTLS technologies are used in the tracking and navigation application for driver assistance, passenger information, and vehicle management. LBS is widely used in vehicle navigation systems to assist drivers and provide real-time traffic information. For instance, Waze, a GPS navigation software app (owned by Google) crowdsources traffic and road information to provide drivers with real-time navigation support.

LBS and tracking techniques have now been widely used for vehicle management and logistic tracking. In recent years, applications beyond car navigation and vehicle management have been emerging. For instance, for driver assistance and passenger guidance, applications to find available on-street parking spaces, safety warnings, multimodal have been introduced.

By Vertical, the Transportation and Logistics segment to hold the larger market size during the forecast period

In the transportation and logistics vertical, the implementation of LBS and RTLS technologies allows companies to increase capital returns and drive customer loyalty. These technologies also assist to understand customer behaviour and offer valuable information that could help build enhanced advertising campaigns, optimize transportation operations, and select accurate locations.
