Global Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN) Market

Market Overview

With the rising number of smart phones along with the growing flow of digitalization, one can easily find out the real time location based on information on their handsets. Not only outside the buildings but anyone can easily find the location inside the building as well. So indoor positioning and indoor navigation  is a system that is use to locate people or object inside the building with the help of radio waves, magnetic fields and other sensors and can navigate their path towards the destination. It is also known as indoor localization as it collects or locates anything inside the premises. With the help of radio waves and signals collected by devices such as smart phones, anyone can easily locate people or object inside the premises. The absence of satellite signal inside the premises is growing the need for indoor positioning and indoor navigation systems so that connected objects or people can be tracked. Penetration of global positioning system (GPS) technologies in the indoor positioning and indoor navigation system enables navigation in the indoor building, such as malls, mega-stores, casinos, airports and others public areas.

There is less complexity in installing these GPS technologies. Thus, the exertion of these technologies becomes hassle free for users. It is seen that in the former years, many companies have collaborated to work upon indoor positioning and indoor navigation systems such as Polaris Wireless collaborated with Global telecom, a Philippines based company, to work upon indoor positioning and indoor navigation systems. The increase in number of smart phones is the biggest growth driver which helps the indoor positioning and indoor navigation system installers to provide better services. On the other hand, lack of awareness among the population about the use of indoor positioning system, creates cynicism among the end-users to deploy indoor positioning and indoor navigation systems inside the premises.
