According to a new report from ABI, the indoor location market is “now accelerating into the mainstream.”
The research behemoths say that new contracts and deployments of indoor location systems are being announced on an almost daily basis.
“The arrival of iBeacons has caught the imagination, but the reality is there are many more location technologies available, all of which have unique benefits,” the report summary reads.
“Many companies have focused on one technology or vertical, but it’s clear that both the opportunity and competition is much greater,” says senior analyst Patrick Connolly. “The industry needs to consider the whole ecosystem and which technologies are best suited to each application and vertical.”
These findings, which are part of ABI Research’s Location Technologies Market Research, are available online now from ABI.
