Active Geofencing Market to Grow at a CAGR of 24.1% - Global Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2019-2024 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Active Geofencing Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)" report has been added to's offering.

The active geofencing market is projected to register at a CAGR of 24.1% over the forecast period of 2019-2024

Geofencing determines the geographical boundaries using radio frequency identification (RFID) or GPS. The active type of geofencing is dependent on the end user as at any point of time it can be switched on and can be tracked using a smartphone application; whereas, passive geofence runs in the background and use the internet on cellular data or Wi-Fi.

  • The organizations are now becoming more data-driven in terms of their decision-making process. In result, the use of geospatial data has been increasing over the year. Active geofencing technology features real-time tracking made the use of geospatial data more efficient. Hence, fueling the active geofencing market growth.
  • However, the rising awareness among the consumers about the tracking of individual locations from smartphones and consumer concern about their privacy due to the regular data breach cases, are restricting market growth to an extent.

Scope of the Report

The scope of the study for the active geofencing market has considered the application of the technology in a wide range of industries for both small & medium scale as well as large scale businesses globally.

Key Market Trends

Retail Segment to Witness Significant Growth

  • The rise in smartphone by individuals usage globally is encouraging retails to adopt active geofencing technology as they can track even more footfalls in their geofenced region. It is observed that developing countries have better penetration of smartphone with 82% against 80% in developed countries. Also, smartphone shipments are expected to reach 2.2 billion units globally in the year 2019. Hence, the active geofencing market has growth opportunities in developing countries.

  • Small and medium scale business (SMBs) are adopting beacons and active geofencing technologies to connect their customers in a better way. The cost related to this technology is negligible as many beacon units are available under USD 20. The software platform needed to manage the messaging can also be developed with ease.
  • The Fintech segment in the region is also on rapid growth. Many banks are adopting active geofencing to verify the locations of customers against card transactions, by which, they can ensure that transactions on customers' cards are approved and reduce the risk of fraud.
  • In addition, Walmart has already entered the Indian market and the huge base of e-commerce in the region brings more opportunities for active geofencing market as Amazon and Walmart has planned to deliver products by unmanned drones.

Competitive Landscape

The active geofencing market concentration is more towards consolidation with the presence of major players like Microsoft and Bluedot. As these companies allow developers to create third-party apps to support active geofencing technology, the market has a high barrier to entry.

  • February 2019 - DJI, the civilian drones and aerial imaging technology provider improved its geofencing technology with the launch of its Geospatial Environment Online (GEO) 2.0 system across Europe. DJI has chosen Altitude Angel as its new partner to deliver accurate, real-time, and relevant geospatial data for airports, TFRs, and other sensitive areas in 32 European countries.
  • January 2018 - Bluedot Innovation launched Bluedot Location Marketing on the Salesforce AppExchange. This has empowered businesses to connect with their customers, partners, and employees in entirely new ways. Bluedot Location Marketing offers accurate location services and geofencing, allowing brands to harness the power of location, to build personalized journeys.
