The indoor positioning and navigation system is a network of electronic devices that helps in locating objects and people in closed surroundings, such as hospitals, museums, and university campuses. It uses beacons to broadcast signals to smartphones, a dynamic positioning system platform, and the applications that make the systems indispensable to consumers. This system allows end-user organizations to understand customers in real-time and send relevant messages related to their identity and needs.  The demand for indoor positioning solutions is increasing rapidly in the retail industry owing to numerous associated benefits including improved customer searches, effective route planning, and optimized customer targeting. Also, the rising demand for indoor positioning and navigation devices and solution for customer privacy is fuelling market growth.
