Wayfinding System Market Introduction

Wayfinding is sensing where a person is positioned in a building or an environment and finding out how to reach the desired location from the present location. A number of codes go into wayfinding, such as architectural clues, sight lines, lighting, and signage; these are known as information support systems for a wayfinding system. Users rely on these codes when making decisions about how to reach their destination. In this market, whether it is a single floored structure or an entire campus, vendors can modify a wayfinding system to meet the needs of a client.

Wayfinding System Market Dynamics

Digital Framework that Goes Beyond Providing Basic Information Driving Demand for Wayfinding Systems

Advancements in wayfinding have responded to unique needs of a client to establish markers and identification of patterns by crafting immersive spatial relationships between customers or users and the locality or areas where wayfinding is required. Signs, directional aids, and maps remain in force; however, companies are working for digital framework that goes further than providing basic information.

Applications such as cellular Wi-Fi systems and Bluetooth-driven beacon systems can be used by people in order to navigate space in a more profound way and to make wayfinding convenient for every user. This expansion has encouraged the growth of omni-channel experience or multi-device connectivity, which can inform users where they currently are, where is the point they need to be, and what they can do once they reach the desired location.

High Cost of Infrastructural Improvements to Hamper the Growth of the Wayfinding System Market

Creating an omni-channel experience comes with extensive infrastructural changes for cities especially soft-infrastructural developments. Considerable collaboration is required together with development and key stakeholders to reinvent the user experience by enhancing the wayfinding approach and construct a completely connected multi-modal experience. This is a task that requires huge spend on infrastructure and necessitates significant cooperation with local governments, a city’s chief technology officer, etc. to utilize benchmark technologies, that may lead to hurdles in the wayfinding system market.

Other challenges facing the wayfinding system market are lack of standards and design complexity.
