Context Aware Computing (CAC) may be defined as patterns of computing which takes into account situational information about things and surroundings, places and people for delivery of situation centric functions and content. The specialized computing pattern mainly aims at predicting needs based on certain trends. These are used to innovate quality of interaction with various end users. Increase in industry demand with an objective to attain better target prospects for leveraging these systems is estimated to drive the global Context Aware Computing market during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.Context aware computing facilitates quick decision making both at individual and organizational level. The sophisticated software saves, analyze and captures data. It then sends this data across a network which basically delivers required context with the help of an end device. Thus, growing awareness and popularity of context aware computing is expected to boost the demand of this market during the forecast period.CAC basically retrieves data which is based on user preference. It is not based on a single technology but it is a combination of cloud, big data and mobile technologies.
