The market is projected to grow from USD 15.76 billion in 2022 to USD 43.97 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.8% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with location analytics experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 15.1% in 2020 as compared to 2019.
In recent years, geospatial services have gained excessive demand across various businesses, government, and retail industries, supplementing the market growth. Innovative technologies such as cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and big data play a crucial role in broadening the application area of location analysis.
The market has been significantly driven by the adoption of global positioning system (GPS) practices across smartphones, vehicles, and other portable devices. Key players operating in the market are taking key initiatives to strengthen their position. For instance,
Financial Downturn to Hinder Market Growth to Some Extent
The demand for location intelligence solutions has grown significantly in recent years; however, owing to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market declined marginally in 2020. This is owing to the minimal adoption of location intelligence solutions among verticals. Several market players operating in the market witnessed a financial downturn and adverse impact on revenue growth.
Location information played a critical role in the administration of community emergency services amid the pandemic. The health infrastructure sector has been dealing with several issues, including overcrowding in hospitals and a scarcity of ventilators, gloves, and other essential supplies. Location data has become an important tool to overcome these challenges and provide insightful information about planning and optimizing resources across the healthcare sector. Various government in countries such as India, Germany, and others, has developed smartphone apps based on location systems to map the movement of COVID-19 positive checked citizens in their immediate vicinity. For instance, in April 2020, the Indian Ministry of Healthcare launched ‘AarogyaSetu,' a Bluetooth and location service-based smartphone application that keeps users updated about emergency services and positive people around them.
The increasing adoption of smart wearables, robotics, and drones assists the growth of the location analytics solutions during the pandemic. Organizations are implementing advanced maps and Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions that assist them in responding to the situation, managing activities, and facilitating the reopening process. On a long-term basis, location intelligence technologies are expected to offer support to assist people back to work safely while ensuring security and compliance.

As a result, the strategic benefits of location intelligence among various industries propel market growth.
Concerns Associated with Geo Privacy and Confidential Data to Limit Market Growth
Consumer privacy concerns are important in the processing of location data since several regulatory restrictions might prohibit access to location information without the user's agreement. Individuals concerned about the protection of their location-based data might decline to enable vital location data to be gathered, as some geospatial analytics apps need. Government laws and regulations oversee processing of data, location sharing, the use of position information, and data storage. The European Union's (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU's first concerted attempt to safeguard individuals' Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Companies that collect data must follow regional legislation and obtain permission from each customer.
Organizations access to consumer location data is constrained, limiting their usage of geographic information analytics solutions. As a result, individual worries regarding geo-privacy and sensitive data are growing, restricting the global location analytics market's predicted growth in the approaching years.
Solution Segment Captured Largest Share, Owing to Adoption across Large Organizations
Based on the component, the market is segmented into solutions and services. Among them, the solution is expected to capture the largest market share in 2021. The solution is further bifurcated into spatial analysis, geocoding, reporting and visualization, and others.
The analytics solutions endorse social, geographic, physical, and emotional indicators that are helping businesses to increase their profit. Extended practices of the google cloud and google maps into the advanced location mapping and tracking applications drive sufficient adoption of the geocoding APIs. Spatial analysis is expected to showcase significant adoption owing to its enhanced perspective capabilities. Spatial analytics is allowing businesses to solve complex location-related problems and drives new perceptions for better decision making.
The service will probably demonstrate the highest growth rate during the forecast years. The development of various custom applications and enhancement of the existing products drives sufficient demand for integration and implementation services. In services, key players are offering consulting, integration and implementation, and support and maintenance services.
Outdoor Analytics to Drive Major Revenue
