Oyster Bay, New York - 01 Sep 2015
Following a detailed assessment of the BLE Beacon market, ABI Research estimates that Bluvision is the leading BLE Beacon vendor in 2014 in terms of units shipped.
ABI Research’s new quarterly database, BLE Beacon Technologies, Applications, and Revenues covers all aspects of the market including market share and forecasts for the new Eddystone standard. ABI Research’s Principal Analyst Patrick Connolly comments, “The market is going through a transition phase where many of the beacons that have shipped are either waiting to be deployed or are in the hands of developers. Despite this, there have been some huge contracts awarded in the areas of industrial, asset tracking, airports, advertising networks, and retail.”
Bluvision leads the way, with Gimbal and Estimote also shipping in very high volumes. Both Kontakt.io and Sensoro are achieving much stronger success in 2015, which should shake up market share rankings in the future. Radius Networks has a quality roster of customers and is on the brink of some big announcements.
“From an investment point of view, most OEMs are undergoing investment rounds as we speak. There is still a huge opportunity here to get in early, just as the market is about to grow exponentially over the next 5 years,” adds Connolly.
Other highlights from the quarterly database include over 20 verticals all exhibiting strong CAGRs, forecasts for the emerging BLE Beacon application market, and detailed outline of how and where Eddystone beacons will dominate.
These findings are part of ABI Research’s new BLE Beacon Technologies and Services Market Research.
