Current and Projected iBeacon And Bluetooth Beacon Market size in terms of volume and value 2016-2026

Nowadays, the world is going through the third industrial revolution i.e. the smart infrastructure development built around the Internet of Things (IoT). Continuous technology advancement is a key factor for the revolution of the global stores and business sectors. Over the last decade, various technological advancements in the electronics and information technology have occurred rapidly resulting in the development of the global iBeacon and Bluetooth beacon market. iBeacon is a protocol which was originally developed by Apple Inc. Since then, other vendors also have made iBeacon-compatible hardware transmitters known as beacon. The technology enables tablets, smartphones and other devices to carry out activities such as to send or distribute messages and approximate location determination when there is nearness to an iBeacon. Both software and hardware components are involved in iBeacon technology. iBeacon is compatible with OS 7, iPod touch (5th generation) or later, iPad mini or later and iPad (3rd generation), iPhone 4s or later or later devices. Also, with Android 4.3+, Macintosh computers (OS X Mavericks 10.9 and Bluetooth) 4.0 and Windows Phone devices (Lumia Cyan update or above). Various applications offered by iBeacon and Bluetooth beacon include alert or push notification sending to iBeacon enabled device, whenever the iBeacon user is around a iBeacon-enabled retail shop (special offers), museum (sporting event/closest display), bus stop and other locations.Travel industries are undergoing through major deployments of beacon technology in airports and hotels. The iBeacons and Bluetooth beacons are intensively used in smartphones. Thus, the global iBeacon and Bluetooth beacon market is anticipated to witness significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Global iBeacon and Bluetooth Beacon Market: Drivers and Restraints
