GPS Tracker Market Expected to Behold a CAGR of 8.4% in terms of value through 2017 – 2027

Connected Cars, Smartphones, wearables and pet trackers are just some of the devices that are in the trend and experiencing high growth in the current market scenarios. Apps like Uber and Pokemon Go have earned millions of dollars. While such devices and applications will keep flourishing, the common factor connecting them is the use of GPS trackers in their functioning. Smartphones, vehicles and many other IoT devices use some sort of GPS Tracker to enable countless applications involving either analysis or transmission of location data.

GPS trackers use longitude and latitude data extracted from a constellation of satellites to calculate the ground speed and course of the object that the GPS tracker is attached to. GPS tracker can be embedded into a device or can function as a standalone GPS tracker device depending upon the application and the tracking object that the GPS tracker is attached to. GPS trackers were widely used in logistics and defense applications and have recently been made available for consumer markets after the revolution in smartphone and IoT applications.

Customized content based on user preference and location data gathered from GPS tracker is increasingly becoming a necessity rather than a USP for most of the applications and devices. New functionalities being developed in consumer and enterprise devices are utilizing data from GPS tracker to develop new usages. All of this combined is creating a scenario where GPS trackers are becoming a default component in hardware devices. While the ubiquity of location services in hardware devices is driving the growth of GPS trackers, it is also observed that IoT devices containing GPS tracker are not as secure as other computing devices and are susceptible to hacking. GPS trackers are known to be one of the most unsecure component of a device. This is the primary reason that many of the devices deployed in critical applications such as defense are avoiding the use of GPS tracker as much as possible. To be truly ubiquitous GPS trackers will have to integrate advanced security measures into their functioning.
