Proliferation of Smartphones Drives Market
At the forefront of driving the global location based marketing services market are increasing penetration of GPS equipped smartphones and internet. This enables savvy retailers and other service providers to locate prospective consumers and send them push notifications and other advertisements.

Improved connection speed increases reach of location-based high definition video advertisements on connected devices. Hence, better internet connectivity and improved connection speed is the key factor driving the location based marketing services market.”
Privacy Concerns Hinder Market
Posing a challenge to the global location based marketing service market, on the other hand, is the privacy concerns of individuals. “There is an ongoing debate on whether obtaining GPS location of a GPS device user without consent is a violation of privacy of an individual or not. Many people deny the request of apps to send their location data to services providers due to privacy concerns,” adds the lead analyst of the report.
