Micro-Location Technology Market Outlook – 2026
Micro-location technology is used for identifying the in-house location of any object, people, or any other equipment. To track the location, micro-location technology uses various communication technologies such as Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth, Beacon, WIFI, among others. Due to its enhanced functionality of determining the location more accurately, it has been adopted by many industries such as automotive, healthcare, education, and others. Micro-location technology is specially used for proximity marketing i.e. wireless distribution of advertising content to consumers based on their location. This enables the content to reach the consumers, their near establishment, product, and sectors inside a building.
Cisco Systems Inc., a U.S. based company, targets mobile apps with micro-location technology developed cloud-based micro location package named “DNA spaces” comprises connected mobile experience (CMX). It is a software engine that uses location and other relevant information to deliver services to customers on their mobile apps. In addition, Siemens AG, a Germany based company, collaborated with infsoft, a well- known leader in indoor positioning. It developed location-based services for buildings, which enhances the comfort, safety, and convenience for building users.
The micro-location technology market is expected to experience growth during the forecast period due to increase in use of location-based advertisement across various industrial verticals such as hospitality, retail among others. Proximity marketing delivers custom-made information to consumers and allows customers to avail special deals in the nearby outlets. Rapid increase in demand for indoor positioning in various organizations and outlets requires proper management of assets to increase productivity and efficiency of an operation, which is enabled by UWB i.e. Ultra- Wideband technology based micro location solution as it is efficient in detecting the accurate position of an objects. Moreover, increase in adoption of smart phones and emergence of new smart applications in electronics boost the micro-location technology market growth.
Factors such as increase in significance of asset management in industrial, retail, and other different sectors, and rise in use of location-based mobile advertisement are the major key drivers for the market growth. High initial investment & maintenance cost and lack of awareness hinder the growth of the micro location-technology market. Furthermore, growing demand for location analytics in robotics and emergence of IoT in micro-location technology provide lucrative opportunities to the market.
