  • Membership Beacons, Indoor Analytics & Location Sector

    The arrival of BLE Beacons and next generation indoor location technologies represents a true evolution in location, enhancing traditional technologies while opening up a host of new revenue opportunities and markets. Just as location is at the core of unicorns like Uber and AirBnB, so it will play a fundamental element in verticals such as IoT, connected home, health, omnichannel retail, automotive, industrial 4.0, ambient intelligence, AR/VR, and mobile advertising.

    This research area provides clients with an unparalleled depth of coverage, across more than 20 next-generation indoor, outdoor, and hybrid location technologies, including BLE Beacons, GPS, Wi-Fi, LED/VLC, sensor fusion, camera, LPWAN, and LTE-direct, among others. These are analysed across 30+ vertical markets, with over 100 leading companies assessed in detail. All major revenue opportunities are covered with forecasts split by hardware, devices, services, analytics, advertising, and the shift to Location-as-a-Service (LaaS).

    Technology Helping to Keep Karl Lagerfeld in Sunglasses

    3Q 2016

    What often fascinated me about events like New York and London Fashion Week is not the clothes, but everything else. Budgets are big and nothing is off limits; It is an education in viral marketing, shock and awe, excitement, must-haves–and ultimately selling products. You may recognize a few of these terms from previous insights on how retailers need to work on customer engagement in-store and now high-fashion has a few lessons on technology as well.
