Published: Apr 2017 | Report Code: 58406-04-17

Smartphone has become a necessity for every individual in modern day world. People across the globe are using smartphones for their everyday activities such as ticket bookings, e-commerce, and many other activities. Due to its extensive use, retail companies too are searching innovative channels to connect to their customers through their smartphones. Adoptions of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) devices for one-way communication is one such technique preferred by the retail companies for customer engagement. Bluetooth beacon is a device equipped with BLE which broadcasts the messages through Bluetooth directly to the smartphones in its vicinity. Brand promotion and information sharing are few of the applications which are getting promoted in recent times.

Today, retail companies duly emphasize on promoting their products among the potential customers. This has been the key driver for the proliferation of Bluetooth beacon market. Bluetooth beacons are installed in shopping malls and other public places where retail organizations can attract potential customers. The devices work by broadcasting promotional messages (such as offers and discounts) to the customers’ mobile devices. In addition, Bluetooth beacons are installed at places such as airports and other public infrastructure for broadcasting any important instructions directly to their smartphones. Other potential applications of Bluetooth beacon include sports and concert arenas, trade shows and conferences, schools, and museums among others. The setup and working cost of Bluetooth beacon is economical resulting into limited market restraints. Manufacturers are further developing more energy efficient and cost-effective Bluetooth beacons. It is expected that with improved technical specification and further reduced cost, the technology will continue to grow across different applications.
