Bluetooth Beacons Market - High Adoption and Demand in Retail Industry

Bluetooth beacons are devices that broadcast signals and messages in the form of notification that can be received by smart devices present under the range. Beacons consist of a chip and other electronic components (e.g., antenna) on a small circuit board. Beacons are growing in popularity because they can offer an enhanced or more personalized user experience. They are deployed by businesses to deliver contextually relevant content and information to users at very specific locations. Moreover, beacons allow to provide "context-aware" information to the mobile user, opening up the possibility to connect the online (virtual) world with the offline (real) physical world. Bluetooth beacons are widely deployed by industries due to their low cost, simple deploy model and are supported by most mobile operating systems.
