The Global Location Based Advertising Market size is expected to reach $163.5 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 18.5% CAGR during the forecast period. Location-based advertising includes online and offline strategies created to help businesses plan and execute marketing activities based on the geographical location of customers. The usage of consumer data to display relevant brand messages to a highly targeted audience is at the heart of location-based marketing. Localized marketing, also known as geo-marketing, is not a new idea. Businesses have always recognized the importance of marketing to people on the basis of their location. Owing to this, a number of brick-and-mortar businesses also send direct mailers, and that’s why during the tax season, a lot of people can be seen wearing Statue of Liberty costumes on the roadside.

Consumers have to opt-in to allow this kind of data to be available, and location-based marketing is therefore driven through the consumer’s granted permissions. Relevance is also at the root of the approach. If a consumer dines in a restaurant, they might see an ad on their phone for an ice-cream shop only a block away. When a shopper is always in the Little League area on springtime Saturdays, and the data reveals that he hits the grocery store on Thursdays, so the location data has helped to come onto a conclusion that says Tuesday or Wednesday can be the perfect time to deliver a game-friendly snacks package.

Rapidly growing digitalization across business verticals, increasing adoption of internet & GPS enabled mobile devices, and accelerated usage of customer data by advertisers are the key factors that drive demand growth for Location Based Advertising (LBA). Furthermore, the growing usage of social media by users and the move of advertisers from conventional banner ads to new channels have driven the use of LBA across industries. In addition, regulatory initiatives to ensure consumer health, the proliferation of new data sources and the changing marketing approach are expected to encourage demand development over the forecast period.
