Indoor LBS are used to track the location of an object or people within a building or a specific location, such as a university campus. It has a very limited range; hence, it uses only short-range wireless networks such as Wi-Fi and WLAN. In addition, indoor LBS requires a high level of accuracy to locate the position of the object or device. Therefore, it uses positioning technologies based on Wi-Fi, WLAN, UWB, Bluetooth, AGPS, MEMS, and other hybrid technologies. Indoor LBS is primarily used in universities, hospitals, stadia, shopping malls, government offices, airports, museums, convention centers, hotels, resorts, and parking areas.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global indoor location-based services market to grow at a CAGR of 29.7 percent over the period 2014-2019.

The report analyst commented, "BLE beacons are used to provide micro location-based information to devices such as smartphones. They are more beneficial than traditional beacons. For instance, BLE beacons are more power efficient than a traditional beacon. The battery life of a BLE beacon is more than that of a traditional beacon. One of the best examples of BLE beacons is Apple's iBeacon, which was launched last year. It can detect iOS 7 and iOS 8 devices. The iBeacon is very helpful for the retail industry, as it simplifies payment options and at the same time helps in providing on-site offers. It is compatible with iOS devices, Android, and Windows phones."
