Research and Markets: Global Location Based Services Platforms and Technologies Report 2013-2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/sjfjks/lbs_platforms_and) has announced the addition of the "Global Location Based Services Platforms and Technologies Report 2013-2018" report to their offering.

What is the current status of the global mobile LBS platform and middleware market? Indoor location technology is on the rise. Emergency services, lawful intercept mandates and location-based advertising will drive the LBS platform and middleware market in the coming years. Get up to date with the latest information about vendors, products and markets. This 150-page report in the author's LBS research series includes the latest trends and forecasts for this market.

The global market for location platforms will grow steadily in the next few years, mainly driven by the emerging indoor location segment. At the same time, the market for location platforms deployed by mobile operators is maturing.

The market is primarily driven by public safety and lawful intercept mandates that require network operators to invest in location platforms enabling location of any handset. Overall, the growing end-user demand for commercial location-based services (LBS) will not have a substantial effect on the market for mobile network location platforms. Most mass market commercial LBS now relies on alternative location sources, including GPS and Wi-Fi chipsets in handsets. Mobile operators are however showing interest in location-enhanced enterprise and B2B services such as fraud management, secure authentication and marketing.
