New report: Mobile Location-Based Services – 9th Edition

Today we published the new market report Mobile Location-Based Services – 9th Edition which is a comprehensive report from Berg Insight analysing the latest developments on the LBS markets in all regions worldwide. This study provides you with 190 pages of unique business intelligence, including 5-year industry forecasts, expert commentary and real-life case studies on which to base your business decisions.

Berg Insight defines mobile location-based services (LBS) as applications and services that in some way utilise the geographic location of a handset. The increase in usage of LBS and the number of active users have also resulted in significant revenue growth, especially for leading players including Google, Facebook, Baidu, Tencent, Twitter and Yahoo! that together account for about 60 percent of global LBS revenues. Global LBS revenues are forecasted to grow from € 10.3 billion in 2014 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.5 percent to reach € 34.8 billion in 2020. The main growth will come from ad revenues in the social networking and local search segments. Many enterprise services such as mobile analytics, secure authentication and fraud management are also expected to grow substantially in the next few years.
