Concise Analysis of the International Location-based Service Market in North America


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Location-based Service Market in North America" report to their offering. 

Several industries are increasingly adopting LBS devices to enhance the efficiency of their supply chain operations. LBS applications are used to track logistics, vehicle movements, stocks (commodities at outdoor outlets), and inventory management. The Retail, and Food and Beverages industries are the two major industries where LBS devices are increasingly used in SCM to reduce transportation costs. In addition, the increasing adoption of LBS in fleet management provides a competitive advantage for companies since it helps establish communication between drivers and fleet management operators. Thus, the increasing adoption of LBS across industries augurs well for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing adoption of location-enabled smartphones and tablets. In North America, the penetration of GPS-enabled smartphones is expected to increase substantially during the forecast period. This in turn is expected to drive the usage of mobile LBS solutions during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the growing concerns over privacy. The data about a subscriber's location is owned and controlled by the respective network operators, which include mobile carriers and mobile content providers.
